Creating interesting content that your audience wants to read is an ongoing adventure when you have your own online business. How do I choose a subject? What should I write about today? Will my audience like this? These are all common questions going through your head all the time. Today I’d like to share with you how to write good content for a website. It can be any online business, website or blog. You’ve got to know first who your targeted audience is, and what do they want to know.
Choose A Topic That Solves A Problem Or Question
Start with a plan. Choose a topic that is something your readers want to hear about. Focus on the audience. What are they looking for? What problems do they have? How can you fix it for them?
Go over your all your comments and see what your audience is asking for. If you are just starting out or you’ve gone through all your comments looking for problems to solve check out other blogs or forums in your niche. Go through their comments and see what kind of questions their readers are asking and write a post about it.
If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas to write about, try asking your audience what they want to know. For example, let’s try it here.
Question: What online business, affiliate marketing, or building a website topic would you like more information on?
Don’t be shy… I’m sure there’s something you’d like to know… Please leave your answer in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Be the expert in your niche. Read everything you can find about your niche. This will give you an abundance of things in your mind to write about. Then you’ll be ready and able to solve problems for your customers when they have them.
Begin With An Outline, Then Capture Your Audience
Once you have your topic, you’ll want to search for a keyword phrase to include in your title headline. Then make a general outline of what your post will include. Your first paragraph should include what your post is about and what questions you are going to solve for your audience. It should also include your keyword phrase in it. Then divide the body of your post up into paragraphs. The title headline and sub-headlines should capture your audience so they want to read on.
There should be a conclusion to the post with a call to action. A call to action is something that makes the reader perform a specific act or instruction. Examples: to buy something, click on something, join something, etc. Always ask for feedback, comments and if your audience has any questions you can help them with.
People Are Attracted To Visuals And Like Easy To Read Text
People like pictures. You are much more likely to attract people to read your content if you have pictures verses just plain text. You can get pictures on most subjects free without having to give any attribution to use for your website at Pixabay. That’s where I get most of my pictures unless I take them myself.
Always make sure any pictures you use are not copyright. Some sites like Foter will let you use their pictures if you put a attribution link at the bottom of your post. Lots of their pictures can be used for commercial use and some can’t. You have to look and see what the licence is on each individual picture. Then there are other sites where you can purchase pictures if you want.
I highly suggest that you use visuals within your content. Make sure your sentences are not too long. Break them up into easier to read sizes. The same goes for paragraphs. Separate your posts into short paragraphs. It’s much easier to read.
