Writing good content for your blog is very critical to driving organic traffic to your website.
Good content drives traffic to your site forever and free of cost!
The key to building a good blog is being consistent in publishing and keeping it relevant for your audience.
Having said that, I’d also like to point out that we’re in an age of information overload and whatever we are publishing needs to be exceptional.
If one pulls out their Blog’s Page views from Google analytics, you’ll realize that only 10% of your posts get 90% of the views, and we need to be churning more and more posts like the Top 10% of the high impact pieces.
Follow your competitors blog & social feeds and see what type of content are they sharing
Find out the content that drives maximum engagement for your competitors. See the Post share count, like and comments section.
Identify which social media channel works best for your competitor
Keywords and entities can be used to generate ideas and when using in your own articles, will help you rank higher in google search results.
Creating unique and most engaging content specific to your industry will also help you reach the same audience in a unique way and differentiates you from your competitors.
Hashtags are key to getting your content discovered. Trending/Commonly used hashtags allow your content to reach a wider audience.
Listen to podcasts, watch videos, interviews, etc. Synthesize the content into words, overlay it with grammer, commas and some leeway. Tweak it, alter it, read it, iterate and give it the finishing touches.
Several pieces can be created from a single piece of content. You need to learn to hack your way into the content using keywords and categories, and capture the niche to write about.
Write fast, set deadlines, review and iterate later. Period.
Create Catchy Headlines, Image quotes, infographics etc and you’re good to go!
Get sustainable traffic from search, and convert readers into leads.
Promote your content and analyze its performance.
