Whether you are looking to generate leads, attract customers, educate customers or convert customers you need to create relevant content.
Once you have established your aim, creating content becomes easier. It is time efficient for the marketer and the consumer. We want to spend the least amount of time writing content, right? But, we also want to keep our readers interested. In return, the consumer and our target audience want content that will answer their queries.
Sometimes we can get lost creating content. Do you know the best approach? And are you sure where you need to begin? Don’t worry as this guide has been created to offer you with top tips on how you can create the best on-page content.
Get to know your persona
When creating content, you need to know who the content is for. What is your audience interested in?
Researching the interests of your audience allows you to keep content tailored. This engages the audience more as you are offering them what they are searching the web for.
Not every audience has the same interests. For example, a newly passed driver will not be looking for content in the same way as a driver with 10 years’ experience. The technicality of terms they use to search for content will differ.
Research your Consumers journey
Think about the stage which your audience and consumers are at. Are they looking for educational content, or do they already know what they want? There are three different stages that you could tailor your on-page content for, for example:
Catering to your audience and tailoring content will ensure you provide content that grabs attention. This will assist in traffic to your content and assist with SEO.
Identify your aims
The aims of your content need to be clear from the beginning. This will save time and is more productive. For example, your aims should clarify:
- Your topic choice
- Who your audience is
- Why you are targeting this audience
You need to think.
"What will your content provide the consumers?"
If your aim is clear, writing the content becomes much easier.
Quality over Quantity
Another tip is to offer high quality content that is different to what other online content and blogs are offering. Content needs to be rich, insightful and offer the readers a reason to keep reading.
When writing it is important to keep content optimised, but concise. The reader wants information available quick and with minimum effort.
