Here 10 steps a good content writer should follow.
- Before creating any content it’s very important to do proper keyword research on the topic.
You can use different keyword research tools to find the best keyword for your content. As per my experience, I always prefer using SEMRUSH keyword research tool.
- Invest some productive time to create a good title or headline for the content related to the topic. Because only good tittle can engage people to read your full content.
- However, before creating any content, you must know your target audience. You must know and understand what are they exactly looking for, and you can use SEMRUSH for the research.
- The next step is to set the goal of that content. Are you writing that content to increase brand social awareness or to increase your website traffic?
- Start writing your content with a brief introduction to the topic. So that your reader will easily understand what the content is all about and then they can decide to read the full content.
This is a good practice to engage only interested readers. which will help your content rank in google faster and boost average session duration and will decrease your website bounce rate.
- Always split your content into short paragraphs. Which makes it easier to read and understand.
- Give attention to the grammar and readability of your content. You can use GRAMMERLY for the same.
- Nobody likes to read boring articles so, Use attention-grabbing pictures related to the topic in your content.
- Close your content with the conclusion. It means you need to summarize what you’ve written in your content.
