Content is King! Bill Gates coined the phrase in reference to the internet back in 1996. He predicted content would be the revenue driver, but it needed to be spectacular.

If people are to be expected to put up with turning on a computer to read a screen, they must be rewarded with deep and extremely up-to-date information that they can explore at will. They need to have audio, and possibly video. They need an opportunity for personal involvement that goes far beyond that offered through the letters-to-the-editor pages of print magazines.

Your website is an important investment in your organization. It’s important to keep it up to date and offer your users “an opportunity for personal involvement”. Here are five ways to improve your website content:

  1. Target audience
    Almost every conversation Cohesive starts with the audience. We need to know your users. Who they are? What makes them unique? What problems are they looking to solve? Once you understand your user, it’s easier to create content they will actually use and need.
  2. Goals
    It’s important to understand what you are setting out to achieve. Set clear goals for your content and a way to measure its effectiveness.
  3. Beyond the Words
    At Cohesive, we say everything is content. We believe in the power of copy but know that content goes beyond words. You need need to consider the visuals too. A variety of content types helps relay your message. Have a mix of content types like infographics, videos, and blogs.
  4. Tell a Story
    The easiest way to connect with people is to tell a story, no matter the subject matter. Find a way to contextualize the information and engage your user. A strong story provides opportunities to convert your audience.
  5. Accountability / Governance
    Develop a schedule and process to keep website content updated. Schedule regular reviews of your site to ensure your message resonates with your audience and your goals. Remove old and outdated content and keep your messaging fresh.
