Give Your Audience Content They Will Want to Share With Others

If you want to stay current and provide valuable information to a hungry audience, you need to write a lot of good content. This can be difficult… especially when you have other, core responsibilities as an entrepreneur.

With this in mind, here are…

3 Tips to Write Valuable Content… Fast!

Tip 1. Know What Your Audience Wants.

The whole point of writing content is to provide some kind of value to your audience… so before you even start writing, think about your audience.

What do they want to know about right now?

When you have this answer, ask:

What do you want readers to do after viewing this content?

Then, form your idea for your content from your responses.

Tip 2. Create an Outline.

Once you know your topic, jot down the top things you need to cover in your article, blog, newsletter, e-mail, etc.

Then, add thoughts for your title, sub-title, introduction and ending with a call-to-action.

Tip 3. Set a Time Limit and Write!

Next, set a time limit to write your content and start writing.

Use your outline as a guide and go through each point. Keep your sentences and paragraphs short, and remove any extra “fluff” that is not necessary.

You’re Done!

That’s it. By following these three, simple tips, you should be able to create content that your audience will find valuable… fast!

Plus, you’ll be able to give them an action to take at the end (follow a link to another entry, shopping cart, landing page, etc.) that you can monitor.

Let me know how this process works for you!

Melanie,

I really like your points! I’ve been writing for a while now, but more SEO based for clients. It’s quite different than writing for fun on your own time. I definitely try to get a little outline when I start writing for clients. It helps keep the ideas open and allows you to fill in the space with more precise content. :)
