Content Tip #1: Think Outside the Box
Content should be interesting and you should utilize as many forms as possible to test and see what appeals to your audience. It is important to remember that people are different and may respond to different types of content better than others.
Some types of content that might be worth a shot:
- Graphic based content such as infographics and short videos can be eye catching and are great for your busy audience.
- Short guides: often, businesses get caught up in the length of a piece and think a whitepaper or guide needs to be 10+ pages. Really, these types of pieces can be overbearing and a short piece may actually resonate better.
Content Tip #2: Keep It Simple
Don’t bog your audience down with information that is technical and difficult to understand. Focus on the outcomes—what problems does your audience have that you can fix?
Content Tip #3: Create a Plan and Stay Organized
One of the biggest issues companies face is lack of structure with their content. It is important to plan out your content ahead of time and create a schedule so what you are creating is useful, timely and unique. By creating a schedule and sticking to it, you can ensure a constant flow of lead generating materials and prevent the dreaded content drought.
