Here are some helpful written content creation considerations.

  • When choosing titles and subtitles for your articles, it’s worth considering that SEO and creativity don’t go hand in hand a lot of the time. Use titles that include relevant keywords and phrases to gain more website traffic

  • Research the topic of which you are going to be writing and quote where you obtained legitimate information

  • Look online to see what other people/businesses in your industry are writing about. Don’t copy their work, get inspired by their ideas. Make sure you have a good understanding of plagiarism and copyright

  • Use your social media platform and website analytics to see what could get a lot of interest if you wrote about it

  • Create a structure for your article - a start, middle and end

  • Decide on the word count. The average word count for a basic blog article is around 800-1000. Some topics may need more words, 3000 is acceptable

  • Create a draft, put it to one side for a while and then look at it again with fresh eyes

  • Spell-check and proofread the article

  • Ask someone to read the article and give you feedback

  • Recycle popular written content, make a few tweaks and use a different title

  • Combine successful content to create another interesting article

  • Turn popular blog articles into vlogs (video versions of the article)

  • Create some microblogs for a quick read

  • Review old posts to see if you can take sections out to build another article

  • Insert links to other articles and website pages within your content

  • Put a clear call to action at the end of the article
