If your readers don’t get what you’re saying right away they’ll lose interest and look elsewhere for information or even worse, leave a bad review on the most popular site where their opinion gets a lot of attention.
Branding is more than just your company name and logo, it is the process of pushing customers to perceive a business in a certain way. This goes way beyond a tagline and colours.
The core of a brand revolves around meaning and interpretation. Words are the best way to do this.
Consistency in brand messaging is one of the significant factors to determine the growth and success of your business. Consistent, engaging, and high-quality content impacts the audience more than other techniques. Content writing allows your brand to create cohesive pieces of information and result in sales.
Here are tips for writing better content than your competition in the business and make your brand stand out.
The first step in creating great content that stands out is to know who you’re writing for and what they want or need from your business. Too many people throw something online because everyone does it, but the fact is if you don’t have a clearly defined customer persona (or two, or three) you can’t possibly know what they’re interested in, so you’ll have to write for an imaginary person in your head.
The only way to guarantee that your writing will add value is to start by creating a thorough customer persona and keeping it up to date.
Offer More Value Than Anyone Else
you need to offer a lot of value, but you also need to make it easy for readers to find that value.
People are willing to spend looking at your content, so you need to get the key points across in as few words as possible and make sure people can find the most important information quickly.
People like to hear things they already know or are familiar with. Even if you’re talking about something they have never heard before, you can help them understand it more easily if you use plain language.
If your readers don’t get what you’re saying right away they’ll lose interest and look elsewhere for information or even worse, leave a bad review on the most popular site where their opinion gets a lot of attention. Using simple language helps you avoid alienating your readers and helps you get more traffic, shares, and sales.
Use Numbers to Grab Readers’ Attention
if you want people to believe that your content is what they’ve been looking for, then you’ll need to present it in a way that shows them right away that it’s worth reading. One of the best ways to do this is by using numbers (e.g 7 ways to gain customers) because readers will immediately recognize the value of your information and want more.
Don’t overdo it or use numbers for everything though-be selective so that you don’t appear spammy and help your readers find the best information quickly.
Break up long text with short videos, pictures, and infographics: if you’re lucky, some people will read the whole thing.
But for most other readers, short videos, pictures, and infographics are more effective at grabbing attention quickly. You don’t have to use every one of these types in your content – but they work especially well together.
To sum up, the key to writing content that converts is understanding how your customers think. If you can tap into how they process information and what type of content they trust, the more likely it will be for them and share your content.
