6 Tips for Creating Content That People Want to Read (Part 2)

Posted by Andre Savoie On June - 4 - 2010

What Can and SHOULD You Be Doing

Getting excited about writing is a bit like making a commitment to losing weight – it sounds great for the first 2 weeks and then it eventually gets pushed to the back burner.

I talk to website owners everyday who have made a few blog posts or done a video but never stayed with it.  And they are frustrated because the little they did do has not yielded results.  And the best thing you can do if you want to build content on your website is to start making time daily or weekly for it.

6 Practical Tips for Creating Content and Sticking To It:

  1. Find a subject you are passionate about or have an area of expertise.
  2. Budget some time daily to write or create content
  3. Create a content plan that has a schedule of topics for 3-4 months so you don’t have to remember what to write about.
  4. Use free tools such as Google’s Wonder Wheel to see what other topics people are interested in
  5. Shoot for articles of 350 -600 words.  No thesis or doctoral papers necessary!
  6. Share your work on social sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn where you are already participating.

No Excuses

For those of you who hate writing, are seriously limited on time, or simply aren’t creative, there is hope.  You can easily find writers out there who will learn your story and help you tell it to the world.  You can find everything from high school students to seasoned writers with web experience who are out there ready to help create your digital marketing content.
