5 Steps to Creative Content Creation

Posted by Alison Lindemann On April - 11 - 2010

There’s nothing more exciting than building a new website and waiting for customers to come. However, if your on-page content does not convert the visitors into buyers, then you’ll need to re-think your digital marketing strategy. When most people think of website content, the first thing they think of is text. Over the last decade textual content has been the primary source of content; however it’s important to remember the growing trend of dynamic content such as video, audio presentations, quizzes and surveys. For example, if you are selling a product, why not showcase a video of the product being used and how it works. That would create a much stronger selling point, rather than just having text and a photo of the product on the page. The truth is, video sells.

  1. Write a 1000 word article.
  2. Read the article into a microphone and turn it into a podcast.
  3. Highlight the main points of the article and create a Powerpoint Presentation. Upload to SlideShare, DocStoc, or Scribd.
  4. Turn the Article into a PDF and include it as a download on your site or upload it to SlideShare, DocStoc, or Scribd and share it with the world.
  5. Simplify each paragraph and create slides with a few photos, add music in the background and now you have a video. Upload to Youtube and
