The problem with most blogs is..their content sucks! They don’t worry about creating valuable content to their readers. Most of the blog posts will be either boring, unhelpful or they totally lack quality.
So how can you create incredible content for your readers that last even after years?
Here’s the dirty little secret to create valuable content.
Ways to create Valuable Content :
Every blog post should have a PURPOSE. You must be able to provide quality to create a great connection with your readers.
Incredible content starts with great headlines: 90 out of 100 people will decide whether or not to decide your blog posts by just looking at your headlines. So never (ever) forget the importance of your headlines. Spend some time to craft the killer titles. Try to create 3 to 5 headlines for each blog post that you write and choose the best one among them. This way you can create better titles for your blog posts.
16 is the new 14: Make your font size bigger. Your typography plays a vital role to make your blog more appealing. Your readers will love to read with bigger font sizes, don’t make it hard to read your content by using small font sizes like 12 or 13 px. Make it large.
Use the word YOU: Write your articles as if you’re directly talking to your friends. This way you can create engaging content. Your readers will love to see this kind of engagement on your blog. Moreover it creates a personal touch with your audience which will be very useful for you to build a better network around your blog in the long run.
Have a voice: Don’t write your blog posts without having a personality in it. No one will like to read the blog posts which lack the ‘feel’ in it. You can only breathe life into your blog posts by having a personal tone. Develop your own writing style and stick to it. Make sure your readers are comfartable with it.
Create scannable content: Write for the online readers, not for offline people. Most of the online readers prefer skimming your content rather reading it from the scratch. Consider this point before you’re writing your future posts. Write scannable content. Break your content into short paragraphs. Use lots of sub heads, bullets, italic, bold letters to make it more appealing.
Remove the unwanted stuff: Don’t use fluff words. They will degrade your quality of the content. Make sure you’re writing a great copy instead of filling your blog posts with useless stuff.
Interlink to your old posts: Don’t forget to interlink to your old posts, but be sure you’re linking to the relevant posts. It’s recommended to linking to authority sites in your niche whenever it’s necessary. By doing this, you’re not only providing extensive reference to your readers but also you’re increasing your credibility.
Bonus tip: proof read your content
Don’t forget to double check what you’ve written. Because your blog readers won’t love when your content contains full of grammatical mistakes and typos. It also creates a bad impact on your blog when you publish the blog posts without worrying about proof reading it. Even the prolific writers will get typos while writing, but they will take care of whatever they write. They will triple check their writing before hitting ‘publish’ button.
Over to you:
Creating great content is not a rocket science though, but it takes lots of time, research and efforts. You can’t get the results immediately after publishing your blog posts. Give them some time to get more online visibility. Moreover if you publish the blog posts randomly without worrying about the readers you can never make captivating content.
