The SteadyContent Content Writer Plugin: Update Your Blog With the Push of a Button

“Should I hire a content writer?”

This is a question that many small business owners start asking themselves, right after they realize just how time-consuming it can actually be to produce and manage their professional blogs.

Your company’s blog is one of the first things your customers will see about you.

It’s the tool that catches the attention of search engines.

It’s an introduction to your business and service.

If it’s crafted properly, it can also become a marketing magnet; a powerful draw for the majority of first-time traffic to your site.

This isn’t a surprise to many small business owners. They know exactly the importance of this type of digital marketing. They may have a bunch of ideas for blog posts already drawn up. Some even do some preliminary keyword research and develop their own SEO strategies.

But unfortunately, even with all that planning, getting the blog written can still be a big-time commitment over the long haul. One individual post might not take very long, but over time, they start to add up.

During busier times, this task can also turn into a significant drain on attention––and become a distraction from the company’s other business.

What we hear from owners, time and time again, is the same thing: there simply aren’t enough free hours for someone at a small or mid-size company to plan, type up, edit, and post an article to the company blog every single week.

Time is the one thing we can’t change. We can change our methods, our strategies, and hopefully, boost our profits, but we can’t change the number of available hours in the day.

Fortunately, SteadyContent has developed a system that is designed specifically for this purpose: to get you quality, SEO-driven content, and save you a ton of time in the process.

Why Hire a Content Writer?

“Saving time” might be the most popular reason for outsourcing a blog, but there are several other key advantages as well.

First of all, not everyone is a great writer, and not everyone enjoys the actual job of writing an article.

Some small business owners realize that, yes, they need a blog as a marketing tool, but they might not actually relish the task putting it together.

Others love writing, but they might find they only have six or seven ideas for posts.

If you’re trying to sustain a weekly blog for an entire year, those ideas are going to run out very quickly.

And finally, there’s the technical aspect. Even if you love writing and have plenty of great topics on your mind, a successful blog needs to incorporate search engine optimization (SEO) to make these posts effective.

For some owners, the thought of teaching themselves that process makes their eyes completely glaze over.

A good content writer (or a content writer agency) will be able to accomplish all of these goals things at once.

So where do you find one?

Freelancers: Do They Really Save That Much Time?

In their first attempts to kickstart their blog, owners often look to hire a freelance content writer on a site like Elance, Fiverr, or Upwork.

The main advantage here is typically cost. There is obviously a wide range of prices, as individual contractors can set their own rates. There are usually at least some content writers who can be found cheaply on these freelancer sites.

But there are also hidden drawbacks, as freelancers are notoriously difficult to manage.

Many times, what actually happens with freelancers is that business owners spend more time monitoring the schedule and quality of the posts they ordered.

The quality of work is unpredictable, as is professionalism. If you’ve hired a single freelancer, as opposed to a company, a single personal vacation can disrupt your publication schedule.

So what follows is a never-ending hunt for the freelancer who is “just right.” And, as you’ve probably guessed, that can become yet another drain on time and attention.

At SteadyContent, we have a team that takes care of everything: SEO research, writing, and editing. In addition, we streamline the entire process. We can accomplish it all in a way that takes the minimum amount of time out of your weekly schedule.

The SteadyContent Solution

The SteadyContent approach is simple. We use a team of content creators for each stage of producing your blog. We combine their expertise with a WordPress plugin that makes your ordering process as easy as possible.

We do the research, figure out the best SEO-appropriate topics, and get them written and posted. You get your blogs on time, and peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to do anything else.

So how does it work?

Describe Your Vision

When we begin work with a new client, we want to know early on what their ultimate vision for the blog is.

Who is the target audience? What is the desired result of the posts? What are the business owner’s overall goals for the blog?

During this initial stage, we gather as much information as we can. This way, the end result can closely match what the client has in mind. The information includes areas of focus, ideas for topics, and even potential keywords (some clients have specific ideas for these, and some don’t).

Our Research Team

Once we have the introductory information set, we start the research stage. This is where our SEO experts make sure we’re getting the best possible SEO research for your business.

Our experts are armed with the best software available, so we get the most up-to-date data and analysis from Google and other sources around the globe.

We look to see what’s currently trending, highlighting topics that are popular and reaching a wide audience. At the same time, we also keep in mind that certain topics can be so common and generic that they won’t be distinct from thousands of other sites.

We handpick a mix of keywords according to your specifications. All this is done with the aim of getting traffic for your site––specifically, the right kind of traffic for your business. We focus on user intent, which means we select keyword phrases commonly entered by the people who are most likely to become your customers.

The Content Writer Gets to Work

Once the keywords and topics have been researched, we prepare article descriptions and share them with our writing team.

A content writer from our pool of over 550 experienced writers will produce the blog post for you, and turn it back over to our editing staff.

The Finishing Touches

After the content writer is finished, our editors go over your post with an eye for detail, making sure that it contains no mistakes, and that it meets your specifications.

We select an appropriate image for the blog post’s header, as well as any pictures, infographics, or other special requests you may have had as part of your order.

Once the post is complete, we send it to you for approval and automatic posting, with our own Content Writer plugin.

Our Content Writer Plugin

The Content Writer plugin is a unique tool that SteadyContent developed. The system is designed specifically for our clients to be able to use our service with a minimum of fuss.

This plugin allows SteadyContent to deliver your blog posts directly to WordPress. This simplifies and streamlines the process, so you can easily order new content, review it when it comes in, and watch it appear on your WordPress blog.

You don’t have to spend hours a week writing, editing, or even posting the material. With the Content Writer Plugin, you can have it all happen for you.

Easy Ordering

Ordering your articles with the SteadyContent Content Writer plugin is incredibly easy: it takes only a couple of clicks to get the writing process started.

Once the plugin is installed, it allows you to send information directly to us.

Tell us how long you want your articles to be, or any topics or keywords you might have in mind. If you’re not sure, our team of editors and SEO researchers will be glad to assist you and put together an effective SEO strategy.

Instant Notification

After you order your content, it begins its journey through our process, from researchers to the content writer to our editing team.

Once your blog post has been completed, we send a notification that it’s ready for your approval, through your choice of email or text.

We know that turnaround is important for small businesses. The rapid approval process makes it even faster.

Automatic Posting to WordPress

If you have a WordPress blog, you can read and approve your new content without having to go through the posting process yourself.

The turnkey feature of the plugin allows you to approve immediately, or to set it to post after a short wait.

In addition, if you want to make any changes to the content before it goes live, you can contact us about making revisions, and we can adjust the post as needed.

Unfortunately, businesses that don’t have a WordPress blog won’t be able to take advantage of the automatic posting feature of the plugin. However, they will still have access to the most important aspect of SteadyContent: our team, and the content that our 19-step process entails.

In the case of non-WordPress blogs, we can email your posts to you, ready for publication on your preferred hosting site.

From Start to Finish: Our System

  1. The client downloads the WordPress plugin, allowing the automatic posting feature.
  2. The SteadyContent team works on researching the business and industry.
  3. The content goes through a 19-step process of development, with new sets of eyes at each stage, making sure that it meets our standards.
  4. When the post is finished, the client receives an email and an alert in the Notification Stream.
  5. The client can approve the content, at which point it is added to their website in Draft Mode. This enables clients to make any last-minute adjustments before customers can see it.
  6. The blogs are delivered within thirty days of activation (and frequently much sooner).

Simple Basic Requirements

For the plugin, PHP 5.2+ and WordPress 4.5+ are required.

For anyone still using PHP 5.2, it should be noted that this version has reached the end of its life cycle. As of Summer 2019, new security updates and bug fixes aren’t being released anymore, so it’s a good idea to update to a more recent version like PHP 5.6 or PHP 7 if you haven’t already.

In either case, our plugin will work with 5.2 or anything that comes after it. And of course, we are happy to answer questions about the setup process. If you run into any problems, we’ll make sure you know what you need for the plugin to work properly.

Your Partner in Blogging

With the SteadyContent Content Writer plugin, you have the world’s simplest way to get your material published, right at your fingertips. Direct ordering, fast turnaround, and easy posting all combine to create the hassle-free experience that business owners crave.

That simplicity gives your time back––time you can spend managing the finer points of your company.

And as your blog grows, so will your traffic, your profits, and your entire business.

To install the Content Writer plugin, follow the directions posted here. 

Getting Started

If you have any further questions about our system, the SteadyContent team is here to answer them as well. From helping you set up the plugin to developing your long-term blog strategy, our team will partner with you at every step of the way.

In addition to all the great features of our service, we’re currently offering new clients a unique “trial period.” If you just want to try the service out for a short amount of time, we will create a short set of posts at a discounted rate, so you can see for yourself just how easy it really is.

So contact us today! We look forward to working with you.

Together, we can build a better blog for your business.

Working With a Kitchen Designer in Coconut Grove

After you purchase real estate, the first thing you may consider is changing, upgrading, or completely demolishing aspects of your home that don’t suit your needs or style. Giving your kitchen a facelift can be a surefire way to enhance your home’s aesthetics and functionality while increasing its value. In areas like Coconut Grove, Brickell, and S. Beach properties sell at a premium. Any work done should be the highest quality achievable within your budget. It’s for that reason many people consider hiring a professional designer.

Why Use a Kitchen Designer?

Working with a kitchen designer can help you achieve a polished and professional finish. The experience they have in remodeling can ultimately save you time and money. Anything more than minor changes to your kitchen, such as knobs, superficial fixtures, etc., should be handled by a professional. Considering building codes, material costs, and access to reputable contractors all add layers of complexity to your project, kitchens are not a do-it-yourself job. You will want the finished product to be accurate, safe and insurable

Types Of Professional Designers

The designer you should choose depends on the work you need to be done and where you are getting your supplies. National chains and retailers will often have designers on staff at little to no cost. There are also private designers that work on a per contract basis. Although they cost more, they may give you more impartial advice on materials and design because they rarely have direct brand affiliations.

Locating A Designer

When trying to find a designer, seeking the recommendations of friends and family is useful. Some communities like Coral Gables and Pinecrest have designers many homeowners have used with solid reputations. There are also resources like the National Kitchen and Bath Association, which list reputable designers. No matter where you locate your designer, they should have a portfolio of their previous work to review.

Honing In On A Designers Expertise

Keep in mind; designers may be more versed in some areas. If you have a modest single family home and are not looking for opulent trimmings, picking a designer that specializes in upgrading luxury real estate may not be the best way to go. Also, some owners have unique property aspects they may want to be enhanced. For example, waterfront properties have the potential for unique design ideas like open-air walls. Ask potential designers share their design strengths and note their weaknesses.

Once you have chosen a designer, prepare yourself for your consultation and design process by:
Determining your budget
Listing the pros and cons of your existing space
Having some idea of what you would like
Maintaining flexibility about what you want vs. what can be achieved
Agreeing on a time line in writing
Knowing you can ask for multiple draft plans, and agreeing to a number in writing
Minimizing the changes you make as the project progresses

Most importantly, be patient. Doing a remodel properly is a process and there will be some inconvenience to you as your project is in the works.

Our site is your premier resource for real estate related topics in Miami Beach, Coconut Grove, and the surrounding areas. If you have a question, we likely have an answer. Check out some of our other articles, blogs, and resources.

Is PRP Facial Treatment Right for You?

At the Osteopathic Center, we specialize in the latest PRP facial treatment technology and cosmetic therapies. We understand signs of aging, trauma, acne scarring, and sun damage can become heavily evident on your face and neck after time. Also, common issues, like dark under eye circles, can greatly change the way other’s perceive you. Fortunately, PRP facial rejuvenation can help restore and correct such imperfections.


Platelet-rich plasma, PRP, has been used as an effective treatment in orthopedic medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery for 30 years. It is garnering mainstream popularity due to its proven effectiveness and organic approach to cosmetic improvements. Your own blood platelets are used in the procedure, rather than a host of chemicals, to renew the appearance of your skin.

How PRP Differs from Other Fillers

PRP facial treatment is able to stimulate your own collagen, promoting total facial rejuvenation rather than attempting to attack individual wrinkles. If your face is beginning to sink in from age it can add volume and youthful plumpness. The volumizing effect extends to under eye hollows and sunken cheeks. Also improved are skin tone, tightness, and overall texture.


This is in stark contrast to hyaluronic acid fillers that can be ineffective in many areas due to placement difficulty or the penetration of treatment. That said, our team can advise you on whether a pairing of the two types therapies can provide more pronounced results. What may be needed will be dependent on your skin’s condition.

How PRP Facial Treatment Works

Platelets are designed to help your body’s tissues heal and grow new cells. Your body responds best to its own cells, so using your freshly prepared PRP virtually eliminates the possibility of negative side effects. Each session only takes about 20 minutes.


During your session, a small amount of blood will be drawn. While your PRP is prepared your face and/or neck will be cleansed and prepped for treatment.The PRP that is injected into your skin will trigger the natural regeneration of damaged tissue and collagen production. Since PRP therapy is far less invasive than traditional plastic surgery techniques there is no post-procedure care time required.


Effects of your treatment will begin to show two to three weeks after your session and will improve with time.  Ideally, you will receive three treatments spaced about two weeks apart for maximum benefit.  Results can last for up to 18 months.

5 Common Mistakes to Avoid When Filing Taxes

According to data published by The Wall Street Journal, 3.7 million Americans submitted amended federal income tax returns in 2015. These amended returns were filed to take advantage of tax deductions/credits, to submit fresh financial information, and to add new income data.

It is important to note that you cannot e-file amended returns. In other words, you have to file them by sending hard copies using the USPS. The best way to avoid the extra time and expense of filing a hard-copy amendment is to get things right the first time. Here are the ways to avoid common filing mistakes:

Math Errors

Math errors are quite common on tax returns and constitute the first category of errors to be flagged, the IRS explains. In some cases, IRS employees correct computational and clerical errors.

This is especially true for paper returns, which are more likely to have missing or misquoted figures than electronically filed returns. To avoid such mistakes, double-check the figures that you provide throughout the first two pages of your returns.

Erroneous Social Security Number

This error is particularly common among people who claim a dependent exemption, because they have to list the SSNs or ITINs for their dependents. If you have dependents, you should verify all the SSNs/ITINs listed on your tax return to ensure they are correct.

One of the best ways to do this is by double-checking all the social security numbers on your tax return against the actual cards.

Alternatively, you can verify this data from the actual cardholders.

Filing Status

Another common filing mistake that you should avoid is providing an erroneous filing status. This can occur when separated couples file their returns separately while the IRS’s records show that they are still married.

To avoid having to correct your return, verify your filing status. It determines the deductions and credits you receive, and may lower your tax responsibility. Either way, make sure to use the correct filing status or you may end up with an IRS lien on your property.


While it may seem absurd, many taxpayers actually misspell their names when filing their returns due to a number of reasons.

For starters, the current tax preparation software tools do not cover the entirety and cultural diversity of American names, which means they could mispronounce your name or offer a closely similar one. If you fail to verify every detail, you could enter an incorrect name on your return.

In addition, individuals who file returns on behalf of others, including tax/financial consultants may end up mispronouncing their client’s names. Divorced individuals could accidentally use the names of former spouses even after legally adopting other names.

Erroreoneous Income Details

If you are a contractor or freelance employee who receives a form 1099 for taxable income, make sure to keep detailed records of all sources of income. Also, make sure to report them correctly. Penalties from the IRS for unreported earnings are very steep.

Remember, the IRS keeps track of all legal transactions via form 1099.

The penalties for this offense vary depending on the size of unreported earnings and could include wage garnishment.

It is important to note that any federal refund, credit, or extension should be filed within three years of the original filing.


Every year, millions of Americans file tax returns that contain mistakes, including misspelled names, erroneous income figures, computation/math errors, erroneous Social Security Numbers, and wrong filing statuses. Avoid the hassle of amending your return by thoroughly checking your math, your status, and your name before you file.

SEO is an Investment That Grows Your Business!

SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is one part of an effective website design. If you are not already using SEO, it should be part of your marketing strategy. It can be implemented quickly and easily using the right content writer. Here are 5 reasons to implement SEO today:

It Takes Time to See ROI – Get Started!

SEO is a very effective marketing strategy and can drive thousands of customers to your website monthly. However, it takes time to see ROI, or “Return On Investment.” This means implementing SEO takes patience. A recent survey shows that 94 percent of online marketers using SEO effectively plan to continue or increase their current SEO budget. Hiring an agency to create SEO content can be expensive, but the cost is worth it. The investment pays for itself in increased brand recognition and greater search and referral-driven traffic. So be patient. You will see the return on your SEO investment soon.

Golden Age Of SEO

We are in a “Golden Age” right now, where black hat tactics and manipulation are no match for SEO. There was a time when competitors could displace their competition using these underhanded strategies. Now, however, SEO reigns and your company can benefit greatly. This is the time to invest in SEO, before digital assistants and immediate answers take over the search engine territory.

Reap Greater Rewards By Compounding Returns

With every word of content you post, every link you establish, you are increasing your search visibility. This is called “Compounding Returns.” Essentially, you are building your reputation one post or link at a time. The more you put your business out there, the more authority you have on the web. The longer this goes on, the more you will reap conversions and referral traffic. The sooner you start building your reputation and compounding your interest growth, the sooner you will reap rewards.

Don’t Let Your Competitors Pull Away

The longer you wait to start utilizing SEO, the more you will lose out on high-ranking positions for lucrative keywords. Your competitors will build their defenses around their positions, making it harder to get in. They will add more targeted keywords and increase their rankings. The best way to avoid missing out is to get in now. Start using SEO today.

You’ve Nothing to Lose. Give It a Try

Don’t be intimidated by agencies that try to convince you to sign a six-month contract. There are SEO agencies out there that will work with you to accomplish your goals. Talk to professionals. Establish a budget and get started. Results will take time, but you can tweak things as you go. The sooner you get started, the better ROI you will see.

Don’t let the competition win because you didn’t join the race. Start using SEO and maximize your web exposure today.

Fund Your Retirement with Real Estate Investments

We are all familiar with the standard types of accounts when it comes to later-in-life financial planning. However, in the current economy, these accounts will only guarantee you the minimum standard of living. If you’re looking for a little luxury in your later years, consider funding your retirement through real estate investments. Real estate has been used for years by savvy individuals, and it’s your turn to join the ranks of the successfully retired.

Passive Retirement Income

Investing in real estate allows you to enjoy the benefits of a passive income. Passive income is achieved by investing in properties that will generate cash flow beyond what is needed to sustain the investment. In other words, any money you make after you pay the mortgage and upkeep the property goes into your pocket. These funds will pad your retirement, allowing you to leave the workplace and enjoy a comfortable lifestyle.

Multifamily Properties Maximize Passive Retirement Income

A MDU, or multi-dwelling unit, has two or more dwellings underneath one roof. Each unit has a kitchen, living area, bathroom(s), and bedroom(s). An example of a MDU is an apartment building. Investing in one or more MDUs can maximize passive income, which we already discussed above, by providing multiple revenue streams from the purchase of one property. The income from each unit is independent of the others, meaning the loss of income from one unit will not automatically cause the loss of income from the other units. Investing in an MDU is a smart way to maximize your return, since purchasing one apartment building is easier than purchasing several single-family homes. An MDU can also guarantee you have a place to live during your retirement, since you can reside in one of the units while turning a profit on the others.

Benefits of Investing in Multi-family Properties

There are several benefits to investing in MDUs, or multi-family properties. Beyond creating passive income, let’s look at what makes MDUs especially attractive as a retirement investment.

Multiple Streams of Income
As we stated above, a multi-family property will be occupied by several, separate tenants all paying rent independently of each other. If you lose a tenant, you still have others paying rent while you fill the empty unit. There’s no such guarantee of income from a single-family home. If a single-family home is empty, it’s not generating revenue for your retirement. The same could be said for multi-unit office spaces, if you’re looking for a higher-dollar investment. Multiple units equal multiple ways to make money.

Less Expensive to Manage
When you purchase a MDU, you have the option to hire a property management company. The overhead to hire the company and manage the property will be significantly less than the overhead to manage several single-family homes. A management company will handle things like rent collection and soliciting tenants, allowing you to relax and enjoy your retirement.

Invest with Less Risk
Even in a down economy, multi-family properties usually have tenants. This means your risk is less when investing in these types of properties. You should be able to draw passive income even in harder economic times. Also, having multiple dwellings means your revenue streams are not dependent on each other. This also equals less risk.
