How to create flawless website content?
Among the multiple modes of searches, your content just can’t be another needle in the haystack. Optimizing your content in a manner that can be noticed by anyone is very important.
For that, you need to follow a simple set of guidelines.
The behavior, path, and knowledge of your target audience
The audience will tell you what they need. Don’t believe me? Here are some facts that will change your mind.
Once you start following your target audiences path you find:
- Which competitor websites they have visited
- Pages that create most of the conversions
- Keywords that are being targeted in the industry
- Content that is engaging the audience
- How much does the audience know
To put this in simple words, let’s say you are selling cookbooks. While you research your target audience you find the keywords they used to find such products.
Look for competitors who rank higher on Google, voice search, and other search engines. When you study those competitors you would know how much they have already disclosed to the audience and how they attracted them.
This research can be easily done from Google Analytics and other web analysis frameworks and tools. For keywords, you can visit the “Answer the public” website, type a related topic, and find a list of keywords that the customers can search for.
Planning for website content
Content is at its best when researched and documented accurately, but without boring the audience. The first step is to have in-depth knowledge about your service, then listing them down in a systematic format. Tools such as excel, spreadsheet, Git Mind, and others can help you in the planning process for free!

Adding multimedia flavours to your website
The next step is to find multimedia options such as catchy images, quirky web copies, ebooks, videos, infographics, etc.
The modern audience enjoys looking at corporate videos, such as behind the scene story of the team, work processes, etc. That being said, videos on products are also easier to look at and understand than reading the details.

- A video supporting the content
- Catchy banners with attractive taglines/CTAs/copies
- Diagrams to explain the workflow

A clean combination of these elements makes the best web content.
