The Importance Of Creating Content-What You Need To Know Before You Begin

Updated: Apr 4


There's no doubt that content is key when it comes to online marketing- I mean, what's the point of having a website if there's nothing on it to draw people in, right?


Anyone who has dipped their toe into the world of content creation will know that it’s a vast and ever-changing landscape.


With new platforms, techniques and strategies emerging all the time, it can be hard to keep up.


However, despite the challenges, content creation is an essential part of any marketing strategy because without compelling content, you will have nothing to share with your audience.


So, where do you start?


Where To Begin When Creating Content


First, in order to create content, you should understand exactly what it is.


Content creation is the process of developing and curating content for online distribution.


This can include blog posts, articles, infographics, videos, and more.


The goal is to produce material that is interesting and useful to your target audience, which ultimately will generate leads or drive sales.


How?


By building trust with your audience first.


You never just want to jump right in and try to sell your brand or services right off the bat.


Many people find this to be a big turn off and you may come off a bit desperate or appear phony….and nobody wants that!


Especially, in this day and age. People can spot phonies a mile away.


Take the time to build a connection with your audience by being genuine and honest about who you are.


Here are a few ways that you can make your readers feel like they know you better.


1. Share personal stories about your life.

2. Be vulnerable and open up about your thoughts and feelings.

3. Talk about the things you’re passionate about.

4. Let your readers into your creative process.

5. Give them a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in your business or blog.

6. Share recipes, tutorials, or tips that are relevant to your niche.


The more you share, the more you connect with your readers and create a trustful bond.


You see, creating great content requires both creativity and strategic thinking. When done well, it can be an extremely effective marketing tool.


Ask yourself, “What sort of content are they looking for? What problems do they need solved?”


Once you have the answer to these questions, you will have a good understanding of your audience, be able to use the right tone and be consistent with your messaging.


Always remember to research your topic THOROUGHLY to make sure what you’re saying is genuine, accurate and target the audience you want to reach as much as possible.


After all, there is no point in creating great content if nobody is going to read it.


If you can nail those three things, you’re on your way to content success.


When you’re finished with your piece, don't forget to promote your content once it’s published!


Using social media, email marketing and other channels will ensure that your target audience sees your latest blog post or video.


Make sure your content is shareable, meaning that it’s easy for others to share it across social media or other channels.


By following these simple tips, you can make sure that your content creation efforts are successful.


Have you tried any of these principles?
