How to confidently publish your work

We get it!


…and we’ve all been there. No lies, putting yourself out into the big bad world is a daunting thought.


The good news is, most of the fears associated with going public with your content come from within, which means they can be managed.


Let’s take a closer look at why many aspiring writers, entrepreneurs and marketers are apprehensive about making their work public:

  1. Not knowing if someone cares about what you have to write
  2. Uncertainty in the credibility of your information
  3. Spelling and Grammatical errors
  4. Facing adverse reception over a unique opinion
  5. Published articles not being read


How does Leakd help 




The Leakd network includes individuals and businesses from all walks of life.

By collaborating with your peers through our Readers and Reading function, you’ll have the confidence of knowing your expertise is heard.

Moreover, make sure you’re periodically reviewing your Insights.

This data details exactly how your work is being perceived by a wider audience; who’s reading it, where are they reading it from, how often they are reading.


The Editor

The intelligent Leakd Editor delivers a range of tools that are precisely designed to help bloggers seamlessly go from idea, to writing, to publishing.

Some of these features include:


Easy to use vanishing toolbar.

The toolbar gives you all the functionality to create a stunning written article. Removing all the arbitrary items with other programs, the toolbar will vanish as you glide up and down your screen, giving you an uninterrupted, filtered blog space


Category selection.

Easily find something to write about by selecting a category that piques your interest. From there, leakd filters Images and Sources to deliver real-time data related to your selected categories



A guide to selecting a category

Having a category or topic in mind to write about is essential to your success as an Author or Entrepreneur

With no clear subject in mind, you run the risk of:

  • not having a focused blog 
  • being too general 
  • missing appeal of your target audience 
  • having no clear insights into your efforts 

For these main reasons and many more, we make it mandatory that every Author or Entrepreneur has a primary category selected before publishing a blog or article. 

1. To select a category, simply click on of your interests in the catalogue of your Editor.



2. If you do not see the category you want to write about, click the number with ‘+” icon to select another primary category. 


3. From the prompt, select the primary category you want to write about. 


4. Once selected, it will appear in your catalogue. 


5. From there, you can select from a number of sub-categories. If selected, your Images and Sources will reshuffle for the new selection. 





Note: If there is no content available for a specific sub-category, the Editor will deliver content for the primary category.

What can I do on Desktop that I can’t do on Mobile?

You cannot use the Editor on a mobile device.


Leakd Is fully mobile responsive. However, to benefit most from the platform, as well as your creativity, it is best used on a desktop.


This is no accident. There are several reasons Leakd is built this way, here are some:


Long form content


We want you to write and publish quality blogs and articles using the purpose-built features of the Editor. Creating quality written content requires time. It may require you to change your writing strategy. You may need to adjust your SEO settings to suit a changing audience.

All in all, this is not Twitter, or Facebook for that matter, where you publish short-form content to an immediate audience. 




Tailored tools like Grammarly, Sources and SEO operate optimally on desktop.




Did you know the average blog post takes about 3 hours to publish?

While using Leakd significantly reduces time to publish, writing a credible article will still require you to come up with an original idea, fact-check your information and of course adjust for spelling and grammar.


These essential elements of an article take time and that typically means sitting in one spot, focused on your work.


Remember, you can always hit publish on-the-go. Just not edit.



Is there a Leakd mobile app?

There is no Leakd mobile application…yet.



However, the platform is fully mobile responsive. That means you can be just as a productive on the go, as you are at your desk.


Here is a list of some of the things you can do while logged in on your mobile device.  


– View all your Stories

– Scroll  + Filter Headlines

– Review Drafts

– Publish Drafts (Entrepreneurs only)

– Review, view and navigate through real time Insights

– Start ‘Reading’ colleagues

– Upgrade to Entrepreneur

My Editor is slow


We store and host an incredible amount of data, so depending on your location in the world you may find from time to time that there is a short delay in conducting some of the following prompts:


– Changing between categories

– Images loading

– Sources appearing

– Sub-categories appearing


Depending on the category you’ve selected, your location and of course the device you are using, calibrating data between primary and sub-categories can take a bit of time.


If, however, you do receive longer than expected delays, Save your article and refresh your page.


We ask for your patience as we continue to optimize our Editor.

What is SEO and why is it so important to my blog or website?


SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation.

Without focusing on the technical aspects of SEO, let’s take a closer look at what all the fuss is about when it comes to SEO for your blog.


How you manage your SEO will ultimately determine how you’re found on various search engines.

Whether you are a new start-up, a budding entrepreneur or growing business, SEO management needs to be an integral part of your marketing strategy.


There are 4 key ways you can optimise your search engine visibility:


Meta Title

This is the unique title of your blog. It’s crucial you’re as original as possible.


What type of article have you written or want to write?

How to (e.g. How to find inner peace at home in 2021)

Listicle (e.g. 8 ways to achieve success through blogging about travel in Asia)

Report (e.g. Working from home. The full report on do’s, don’ts and must’s)

Journal piece (e.g. A deep look inside the enthralling Esala Pera Hera festival in Kandy, Sri Lanka) 


Meta Keywords

Which words/phrases would someone input in a search bar to find you?


Make sure the words you choose are also represented in your Meta Title, Description and URL.

Again, the trick is to be original.





Briefly, in one or two sentences, describe the purpose of your blog.

Remember to use the words you have used in your Meta Title and Keywords.

This will be a preview of your article on Google.





The URL of your article.



It’s no secret that the majority of traffic to a website or a blog is driven by search engine results. And while paid advertising may fetch immediate results, there is no doubt that focused SEO management will deliver authentic interest over an extended period of time, making it the most cost-effective and powerful marketing tool you can deploy.







How do I keep my audience coming back?

Ok, so you’ve managed break through the barriers of:


Not being able to find a niche, and

Not gaining a following




Your next examination will be how you create content to maintain and grow your audience. We know that tailored and routine content is vital, but if we strip one layer back, you’ll find that asking yourself these three simple questions will help you produce consistent content and drive dedicated readership. 


  1. What is being read?
  2. How often is it being read?
  3. From where is it being read?


What is being Read?


It’s essential you have visibility on which of your published work is fetching the most interest. Without having this understanding, there is no real way of knowing whether you’re catering to your niche.

While you may enjoy a particular style, theme or discourse, it might not be exactly what your audience, for that category, wants to read.

Being mindful of this is an essential step in curating content to grow an audience.


How often is it being read?


Ok so you think you know what content is working, you’ve even gained a few more followers. But how do you know these new followers are actually investing time in reading your work.

Some may have just seen your title and thought “Not interested” or some may have got all the information they need from your title and left.

Separating “Reads” and “Views” is critical when assessing just how often your publication is being consumed.

Typically, time spent on your page is a good indication of whether it was actually read or not.


From where is it being read?


Knowing which part of the planet is a tune with your writing style is great data.

The world is teeming with different cultures, interpretations, faiths and traditions. For example, a particular style of writing for an Australian audience may not fare too kindly in Iran, and vice versa.

Additionally, timing can play a big role in helping you structure content. If your audience is primarily in the US, you’ll want to ensure you publish content that is US time friendly.


Ultimately, feedback through data on your content is everything!

It’s not enough to just write and publish. Understanding how your writing affects your audience is key to maintaining a concrete foundation to routinely share meaningful content. 


How does leakd help?



Structuring meaningful content is all about knowing how your content is perceived by your readers.

That means understanding:

– Which of your articles are being READ and which of your articles are being VIEWED

– What category do your readers like you writing about?

Where in the world are your readers even from?

The answers to these questions and many more will help you make well-informed decisions, so you can continue producing high-quality, relevant and tailored content.

Leakd provides all these insights, and more, to Entrepreneurs.







Easy ways to improve lead flow to your page

Amongst the noise of fancy marketing strategies, and deciding whether you want to automate or not, many novice entrepreneurs forget to KISS! – Keep It Simple Silly.
