How to Create Engaging Content Quickly
Some years ago marketers and website owners could publish any kind of content and get some targeted traffic from search engines, but nowadays it’s all about the quality.
You need to write and publish interesting and engaging content that people really want to read. You need to bring an interesting tone and a fresh perspective to the market in order to stand out. You need to create really special and professional content to simply stand a chance.
As you probably already know, creating that kind of content is not easy. It takes lots of energy and time, and you never even have any guarantee that your readers will like your new article or blog post.
Here are some tips to create engaging content quickly:
1 – Make it 100% Original content
One of the most common mistakes some bloggers and website owners do is that they try to get $5 articles or any other low-quality content, and they expect to get away with it. $5 won’t really take you that long on content marketing, so if you have no budget for content, stick with the quality and create them on your own.
Even 500 words articles can take 30 to 120 minutes to create, depending on the topic and on the writer. When you think about it, that kind of explains why so many people on Fiverr, UpWork and Freelancer complain they don’t get quality articles… how could they?
PLR articles are useless, and scrapped content or content that it’s not even easy to read, won’t do anything for you.
Go with the quality, create your own amazing articles or blog posts or use a professional writing service that delivers unique and engaging content.
2 – Spend some extra time on the headline
The headline is what ultimately determines if people will click on your article and read it or not. It’s one of the most important parts of the article so it makes sense to spend some time in creating the best headline that you can. The better your open rate, the more people will read it and share it.
3 – Make your posts useful
Don’t repeat what anyone else is saying. Try to create original and engaging content that’s actually useful. Tutorials and step-by-step guides, for example, can become an important source of links and new visitors for your website.
4 – Add images
Format your article with well-defined paragraphs and add some images. The content has to be appealing to your reader or he won’t read it. Instead of huge bulks of text add some images to make sure your page is as attractive as possible.
5 – Keep updating old posts
Not many people update old posts, but it’s an effective way of bringing some life back to some old content you already created. Updating an old post, especially if it’s an evergreen post, can turn it into another important post on your website, and get you some extra visitors.
