We have established that content is king and highly essential for business and brand growth, and overall productivity. The content you create or write is powerful enough to influence your audience’s beliefs or sway their interest to your brand or business. You don’t have to be a genius writer or copywriter to know how to write or create compelling content.
Content creation goes beyond just talking about your business, your products, and the services your offer. It is not just enough to say it plainly because the market is saturated with everyone trying to sell one thing or another, so what will make you stand out, what makes you uniquely you?
For your content to be compelling, you need to carry out thorough research on how your business or products are perceived by customers. You need to use appealing words and relevant keywords to create well-structured sentences or phrases that present your business appropriately. This can be done using articles, blog posts, social media posts, and other marketing methods to get your customers to buy your product or use your service. In this way, you are able to present facts in a way that clearly communicates your intent.
Do you want your customers to take an action faster than they ordinarily would? Then you need to start doing this now.
- Understand and Know Your Target Audience: – You need to have a clear understanding of your audience before you start writing, and what tone or type of information they want and need. Write as if your blog post or newsletter is being read by a single person, a person from your target audience; as if you are writing for this person alone, you are not trying to convince her of anything other than to feel compelled to visit again, refer your business or even better to follow your call to action.
2. Your content must be engaging: – When writing content, we want engagement and though this can be difficult at times, it is possible. You want your audience to read every word you write, and you want them to also leave comments and share your post on social media. This is great, but if your content is not engaging, this would be difficult because people generally have a short attention span for something that does not grab their attention or pique their interest; so make sure you leave the best impression within the first paragraph at least. Then follow up with content that leaves them thinking they got to share with someone else.
3. Use Appealing visuals and graphics: – Adding visual appeal to a website, blog posts or newsletters isn’t just about adding a visual to a blog post, or a few images to a page. Instead, it’s about adding highly relevant visuals to a piece of content. It could be a photograph to demonstrate your point or it could simply be an eye-catching illustration that clearly identifies a blog post. But it should be visual that has a purpose, whether it is a graph, conceptual diagrams, screenshots, or video, these are the things that will prompt people to share across the web or grab their attention.
4. Be Consistent: – Writing a blog post once in a while is fairly easy, but keeping your company blog alive with fresh content requires consistency. If you don’t dedicate enough time to it, then you will struggle to be effective and your blog or website will not rank well. It is not enough to write a couple of posts or blog, but the best sites which rank well are those which are updated on a regular basis with unique content that is engaging to the user.
5. Create a call to action: – Your content should ask your audience questions that aim to subtly force them to take an action because it gives them a reason on why they need your product and services.
