Use What You Know

You're an expert in your niche. There are many things you know about your particular topic that others are searching for. While you may think you have nothing more to offer, that's never a true statement. There is always someone searching for knowledge that you have. Think about questions you have been asked about your topic, put those questions and answers into content. If one person asks, there are likely others with the same questions.

What is being discussed in your niche? Join a forum or blog to get an idea of what's happening and deliver content to address those questions.

  • Is there a particular question no one has answered?
  • When you do a search do you get quality results or are they lacking?

It's your opportunity to to satisfy the query and make your mark as the expert in your industry.

Content Value

What value does your content add? The key to writing website content that engages the visitor is to offer solutions. Most people searching the web today are searching for an answer to a particular problem. Delivering unique answers to these queries is your ticket to targeted website traffic.

Visitor Feedback

Your readers can tell you what they are in need of. Participating in a blog allows you to see feedback or comments from visitors giving you additional information for your fresh, quality content that satisfies the needs of your audience.

Small Amounts of Information

Be careful not to overwhelm your audience with too much information in one page.

Planning and organizing your web content should include planning out the content for each page so it's in "chunks" so the visitor is not overwhelmed by one page.

It's easy to do, you want to share all the possible information in one page of content but engage your audience first, then go deeper using a Tier 2 page with more information on the subject.

In summary, you can get many content writing ideas from participating in forums, blogs or using what you already possess, the knowledge in your head. Don't underestimate the power of unique content that you already possess in your head.
