Name: Mr. Azhar Nadeem Azhar has a wonderful skill of content writing and he really know the need of the market
because he think that Writing is a dream job, but not for everyone. Some writers are hired to
write product descriptions for catalogs. Unfortunately, however, most writers have a better
chance of writing product descriptions than they do of becoming best-selling authors. While
successful content writers seem to have an enviable life — they work from home, make their
own schedules and work as much or as little as they please — the vast majority have a hard
time making a living of it. They lack the skills necessary to succeed. Because no matter how
talented they are, writing skill is simply not enough. So, if you want to become successful as
a content writer, you need a full toolkit of marketable skills
