Lauren's 5 Tips for Creating Great Online Content
Know your reader. Knowing who your readers are is the first step in creating great online content! This will help you determine what to write about and how to go about writing it.
Research, research, research! When writing online content, or any kind of content for that matter, you can never do enough research! Make sure to always check your facts and use great sources for your information. This will make you credible!
Keep it short & sweet. When browsing the web, we jump from page to page within seconds. So, when creating any kind of online content, remember that bite-sized pieces work best! Break long paragraphs into shorter ones and use headers to your advantage! This will make your content easier to digest.
Spice it up! Going off of the previous point, no one likes to see large chunks of text online. A great way to add visual interest to your content is to add in images or even infographics that correspond with your content! Here at Bloguettes, I get to work with the creative team to make our content pop!
Make it actionable. Great online content gives readers advice on how they can apply the lessons from your content right away. It leaves them feeling excited to try out the tips you provided! So, when creating online content, remember to keep the best interest of your readers in mind so that they can become better with your expertise!
