5 tips to top, meaningful content

By 14th January 2020 41 Comments

1. Make a simple strategy

Top, meaningful content doesn’t write itself. It takes time and effort. Having an overview of your year’s goals can seem difficult but a website will just sit there unless you make it more visible.

What work do you want your website to do? – Is it just to build connections online? Is it to increase your brand awareness?

  • Pick an overall aim.
  • Keep it simple.
  • Research how to achieve your aims but don’t over complicate things.
  • Use keywords and phrases in headlines and work them into your copy/posts.
  • Consistently update your content to help readers and algorithms find you.
  • Share links to your content and offer value.

2. Pick a style or voice

Are you a serious person? Chatty? Professional? Your website and its content must reflect your business/your personality. That said it should also be geared to pleasing your ideal customer (and perhaps that is not who you are at all). Decide on the correct voice for your content. Stick on brand. Provide top, meaningful content for your target customer.

3 Use images and graphics

Pictures. We all like them. We scroll and our eyes fall first on images. Find graphics that work with your piece and use variations on these to share on social media. (You may need to buy images).

5. Write & proof-read your posts

I am now panicking about typos and spelling!

These two apps make our writing better. The Hemingway app loves an active voice! (Keep away from words with ‘ed’ on the end.)

Grammarly: https://www.grammarly.com/
Hemmingway App: http://www.hemingwayapp.com/

Punctuation matters. Please spend time on editing & re-drafting your pieces. I’m off to check mine (I always miss something!)

 

Of course, there are many more tips and tricks to good content writing. I’ll explore them again.
