You may have heard the expression ’Content is King’. This means that a great site with great content will always do better than a great looking site with poor quality content.
Great content should be customer focused. This workshop helps you to focus your message so that it appeals to your customer’s ego – every visitor will look at your site with the same key thought ‘what’s in it for me’ (WIIFM).
You are an expert in your field and you understand everything about your product or service. This can be a blessing or a curse. Writing for the web means writing in simple, clear language with no jargon (unless it is clearly explained) so that your average 13 year old can understand what you are saying.
The choice of language is vitally important and should be tailored to the media you are using. While a more formal approach may work for your website any Social Media updates should use a less formal language suited to the platform. It is also crucial that you use spelling and grammar correctly as this is now something Google looks at when choosing where to rank your website.
You need to be clear on what benefits your product or service brings to the visitor. Often companies are confused as to what constitutes a ‘benefit’ and what is a ‘feature’. You should think about what problem you are solving for your visitor.
In a digital world ‘content’ refers to not just the text on your website but also to the images, your social media posts, email marketing campaigns and your blog too. This is an essential part of your digital marketing. Most people think of ‘content’ as the writing on your website – that’s what we look at in this workshop but you can apply what you learn across all your digital marketing platforms.
