    Before writing any content you should ask yourself - What to Write, How to Write?

    • Look for the topics which are about your website category.

    • Read Google trends on daily basis for the idea of what is going now in the online market.

    • Read Google algorithms on weekly basis to know what Google wants in your article and content to give you ranking on 1 page I would like to recommend you Searchengineland for reading Google algorithm updates.

    • Write for your audience's understanding of your subject, not yours

    I like the quote of Benji Hyam, co-founder of Grow and Convert. He said:

    "The challenge that we content marketers face these days is not what content to create, but how to make it stand out from the rest of the blogs out there covering the same topic".


    Thanks.
    I hope it helps to what you seek.
    Peace!

    I like to use a combination of keyword research and then plug those keywords into buzzsumo to see what topics are getting the most shares.

    Make sure you content is on point and dribble just for the sake of writing something.

    Also it's important to know what you want your content to achieve, are you writing content for brand awareness, to raise your profile, to get clicks or to make a sale.

    "Perfect" content?

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but there is no such thing. What might be perfect for Person A will totally suck to Person B.

    The best you can do is craft good-enough content for a targeted audience. And good-enough content, properly aimed, can make you a ton of money. Chasing perfection is a sure path to either early burnout or an ulcer.

      .
      I agree with this. There is no "perfect" content but there is good content. Find something that appeals to the customers in your niche. That's all that matters. Make sure content is so good that they will keep coming back for more.

  • You should have something interesting to say. Make sure you do your research and even point out examples of how other people agree or disagree with your stance if applicable.

    As John says, forget about perfect because that is not going to happen. Nothing will bring on a case of writer's block quicker than sitting at a blank screen and thinking, "I must make this perfect."

    I say this as someone who has been ghostwriting professionally for a decade.

    The best advice is -- Know your audience. What do they want to learn about or be entertained by? Give them what they what.

    Write like you're talking to a friend, not like you're writing a school paper. Unless, of course, you are writing a school paper. In that case, stick to the rules.

    Try to add some personality to your writing and even some humor when appropriate.

    Look for unique angles. Even boring subjects can be interesting if you find a new twist on the material.

    Remember the old saying -- everyone looks at content thinking -- "What in it for me?" Show them how your article or video will help them achieve a goal.

    Let your writing sit overnight and then reread the next day. Read it out loud and see if it flows.

    Edit as necessary.

    If possible, let someone else read it. A second set of eyes never hurts. Not only can they catch errors that you miss, but they can tell you if you're being clear. You already know what you mean, but do others understand what you're trying to convey?

    Don't let fear get in your way. Put something, anything, on paper and you can work from there.

    Every piece of content on your web site should
    • Have a distinct purpose
    • Lead to more ideas, insights, tips, or problem-solving in your niche
    • Establish, strengthen or promote your brand
    • Somehow be linked back to your site so if the content is shared it will point viewers back to your site
    • Be compelling in some way so that it is memorable and produces some emotion or (hopefully) action in the reader
    • Be unique if at all possible ... and if it is not unique, it should be valuable and targeted to your niche (content from other authority sites or experts in the niche is fine - with permission, of course)
    • Be credible. If possible, verified as truthful and accurate.
    • Be interesting, or entertaining, or curious, or educational, or ???? (In other words, pleasurably readable ... not boring, tedious, dull, humdrum, bland or dead!
    Please note: the same principles apply to all forms of content - images, videos, audio, etc.


    The very best to you,


    Steve

    Another vote for what John said. There's no such thing as "perfect" content. If there was, it would have been discovered and rendered useless already.

    If you haven't noticed, content on the internet is constantly evolving, and no "method" stays popular forever.

    You'll notice this in all sorts of mediums - its why TV formats have their runs for a few years then eventually lose the interest of their audience.

    Instead, you need to constantly ask what your specific audience needs and wants (which will change almost from a daily basis) and try and adress that need as closely as possible.

    Instead of "perfect"

    just get that article out there

    Make it your own voice, make it sound like a conversation.

    You will be building your own base. People will like your and there will be haters but just put your content out there.

    Of course, a little SEO and keyword will help a long way too
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11364757].message }}
  • The perfect content is long, relevant, with images, videos or infographic.

    There is no such thing as "perfect content" but there is good content .A good place to start is knowing what types of content your audience wants and delivering it . You must also take into consideration your goals and map out a plan of how you are going to achieve your goal.

    page load speed
    key word usage
    website theme
    content both on and off page all are important factors to consider when producing content .

    As stated earlier, perfect is a strong word.

    Your content can be very good for your audience and far from being optimized for SEO and vice versa.

    It always depends on your goal. Do you want to inform or sell?

    If you want to sell, there are psychological ingredients to have such as credibility and if your targeted audience likes you and wants to bond with you. You can do this through a text, an audio, a video or a webinar.

    For on-page SEO content, it depends on a lot of factors such as
    -the keyword(s) you target
    -the area or the country you target (google.com, google.ca, etc.)
    -and many more aspects

    The problem with on-page SEO is that a lot of people mention great general things that sometimes work but not always, depending on context.

    I wish I could share a link of a video that talks about this. I'm new to this forum and I think that I can't put links.

    If you want the link of the video, send me a private message.

    - Be helfpful (means knowing your audience)
    - Be entertaining...again this means knowing your audience and playing to your strengths - but be authentic, you won't appeal to everyone, but you will win over a loyal audience
    - Mix in video and audio with written content
    - Show and talk about real experiences/doing versus just theory...secret is that 99% of your audience WANTS something but are unwilling to take action - so they watch, study and are attracted to those that do...quickest way to get a following. There are likely thousands of people talking about what to do, but very few living the life and sharing their experiences - that's what you want to aim for...in absence of that, tap into others giving them a voice

    Some amazing advice from Warrior People. Just to reiterate:

    Write something that really connects with your readers.
    The more you understand your Market (etc.) the more you can create content that really helps them.

    A perfect content is the one that Google loves, original, SEO friendly, that is long, has videos, social linkages, plagiarism-free and that also serves your purpose in terms of pre-selling, if you are trying to sell something.

    Coming from an SEO standpoint keyword research is the most important part of content writing. If you aren't using the right words your landing pages won't highly rank on a search engine. If your pages aren't being ranked no one will see them, which will hurt a lot of digital marketing efforts. Doing your keyword research and targeting your niche audience is very important. Along with the right keyword you want to make sure you sound like a human and are relatable.

  • You need content that people are looking for and you need to get the content easy to find. It can help to enjoy the topic, but maybe what you enjoy is not profitable.

    The content should be easy to read, and have your personality in it. It doesn't have to be perfect. People don't want to read the same information as other content marketers.

    You can have the best written content in the world on how to make shoes for bears, but if nobody wants to read that information, nobody will read your content.

    Hi,
    Content that solves problems for your readers is considered perfect content.
    People have to be interested in the answer, though. Use keyword tools to make sure there is interest.
    You can also check your own stats to see if your own readers enjoyed that content in previous posts.

    Content creation is a bad business model; either help people make create content (offer scalable technology)/give them a platform or leverage other people' content (user generated). Creating content means you're entering a superparanoid competitive world.

    There is no such thing as perfect content. Most people fail in this industry because most are trying to be 'perfect'.

    Just be knowledgeable in an are where you feel you can offer others value. Do you best but don't try to be perfect.

    Hi there. The perfect content shall be simple and straight to the point. Most importantly such content must be up todate and relevant to the topic you talk about. If possible, add some testimonials to make it more impressive and interesting. Photos and videos would be a great help.
