Hi Guys,

Can anyone help me with a content flow while writing a content so as to generate more readers.

    Your question is FAR too broad...what specific problem are you having? What method of writing content are you using....how much research (including keywords) are you doing?


    Do you organize your points/facts/etc before writing or just start putting words down? How well do you know your subject?

    Like Kay King said, that is a broad question. I'll weigh in with emphasis on your request for help with content flow for increased readership.

    Content Writing Tips for Optimal Flow and Readership

    You can look into AIDA (Attention Interest Desire Action) combined with PAS (Problem Agitate Solve) to use some tried and true content formulas proven to generate optimal readership and direct response.

    I personally use the proprietary Get the Click formula which is my own more advanced formula for multiplied response, but those first two older classics provide you a good start.

    Look into using the bucket brigade to help specifically with flow and use subheads to break up text to relieve visual eye strain and promote increased readership.

    Use bulleted lists to keep the content fluid and engage with more readers who otherwise may not bother to read.

    Remember to offer reasons why a point you make is important and explain the benefits of every call to action you make.

    Incentivize every call to action you make and watch your response improve near instantly.

    If you really want to ratchet up the readership even more, then look into the use of open and nested loops based on principles found from the research of the Russian scientist Dr.Zeigarnik.

    Treat chapter titles, report titles, video titles, blog post titles, etc. like headlines designed to "sell" readership of the chapter to follow to provide you at least a slight bump in overall readership and response.

    Use short sentences to increase readership flow and increase your content consumption rate.

    Use active voice power words and avoid wimpy passive voice words like gerunds when you can. (Gerunds are words that often end in the "ing" suffix.)

    This approach should give you a great start to improved readership and direct response.

    Enjoy!

    This type of information cannot be answered
    in a forum post. You probably need to take a
    writing course or read a couple of good books
    about content development, coupled with what
    has been stated above.

    There is something on this forum that can get
    you started with writing. It is timeless wisdom

    What I would do is go to a proven and successful article already and study how they format and outline their content and emulate them and tailor it to your own brand.

    Who's your target market? What do they want to find out about? Gossip? Learning about things? News?

    answerthepublic dot com is an option for you. Note you have one or two free questions a day. Go there, plop in your topic, and start looking at the questions. Can you answer them?

    If you want to get more eyeballs to your content, then you need to learn proper keyword research techniques that focus on low-hanging keywords with little competition, especially if you're just getting started.

    If you want to keep your readers longer, then you need to think about your niche market and your target audience. What do they like? What are their pain points, and how can you help them?

    If you can answer that, and convey it into your content within the first few paragraphs, then you will increase your chances of getting people to stick around.

    The best thing to begin with is write content that is not too generic.
    Add in depth information, researches and images
    Always write so as to help the reader find a solution.
    Lastly, optimise it for SEO and share it on social channels

    I would not be afraid to just write. Write great quality content and then optimize the page with keywords later if you have a keyword tool for the search enzines to pick up. At the very least you should have a webmaster tools account with Bing and Google this way your able to pick up ideas and track how people are coming to your website. These ideas will help you create even more content for the search engines and deliver optimized content that will deliver lots of organic traffic to your website.

    I think before you compose anything, it's useful to sort out your considerations. Make a layout to sort out the central issues you need to talk about, the subjects of passages and the legitimate request your thoughts ought to be introduced in. Before you compose anything, it's useful to coordinate your considerations. Make a framework to sort out the central issues you need to talk about, the subjects of sections and the coherent request your thoughts ought to be introduced in. Unconnected thoughts resemble barriers that users need to switch gears to get around. On the off chance that a theme doesn't associate well to the past one, rearrange the sections to keep up with the progression of your writing. Clear and succinct phrasing likewise adds stream to your composition, making sentences simpler to follow.

    To keep them reading you must know your audience.

    What do they want to know? What keeps them awake at night? What are their problems? What do they most want to avoid/achieve?

    Readers want a transformation - How to get from point A to point B. Broke to rich. Fat to thin. Single to in love. Sad to happy.

    If you can answer their burning questions and help solve their problems, they'll keep reading.

    Doug gave you some valuable information in his post regarding how to structure your writing.

    Don't expect your first blog posts/articles to be great, they'll suck. But keep writing and see how readers respond.

    Read a LOT! Notice how popular articles in your niche are written. Don't steal, but learn from what others are already doing. Then improve on what's out there.

    Read a LOT!

    Exactly - including RETURNING to a forum where you asked a question so you can read the helpful posts shared by other members.


    Why bother to post a question if you don't care about the answers enough to read them? I'll never understand that mindset.

    General question regarding content writing for all - if you had the money to outsource, would you still write your own content? I have confidence in my ability to write decent quality articles but just the thought of doing mind-numbing writing, article after article, is a motivation killer.

      A lot of my clients are more than capable of writing their own content but they choose to use their time in other ways. Not everyone enjoys researching, sitting at a keyboard, editing and rewriting. Some of us love all of the above (most days).

      If you don't enjoy the writing and you have the money - outsource.

      That's what keeps us ghostwriters in business.

    Optimizing the writing process for a reader really comes down to keeping things short and concise. In other words, get all of your points across in as few words as possible. The more unorthodox you are with sentence structure and grammar, the less likely it is that your reader will be engaged in what you're saying.

    A lot of writers (especially newer writers) tend to do nothing but ramble on and on about one point for what seems like eternity when they should've just done their best to summarize their thoughts much earlier on in the paragraph. What does this do? It's essentially dragging readers along at a pace they don't want to go--in the opposite direction from where they wanted to go when they started reading. So always keep your reader in mind when writing about it.
