My experience, as both giving and receiving feedback is, the longer one spends on creating a piece of content, the stronger they feel about the feedback received. Especially negative feedback. They identify with the piece of content they created because they have poured their heart and soul into it.

Creating digital content is like trying to squeeze blood out of stone for some people. It’s not for everyone. Just like consuming digital content is not for everyone. Believe it or not, there are people who do not have internet by choice or even if they do, they do not take part in the tribal rituals of social media.
You don’t have to be a fantastic sales copywriter to provide your audience with content that gives them value. Great value content will help them identify your brand and make them a raving fan. Because that is what you want. You want your audience to help you grow your visibility by sharing, recommending, engaging with and talking about your content.
