7 Characteristics of Good Web Site Content
By Alwyn Botha
Here are seven things you can do to improve the content on your Web site.
1. Quantity - The more content you have available, the better chance
potential customers will bookmark your Web site and visit it again.
2. Unique - The more unique your content is, the better chance you have
that people will bookmark your Web site and visit it again. After all, they can
only get your unique content from YOU.
3. Free - The more content you offer for free, the better. This way, your
potential customers can clearly see your ability to meet their needs.
4. Relevant - The more relevant your content is to a specific customer,
the better the chance they will do business with you.
5. Practical - The more practically useful your contents is, the better
the chance potential customers will do business with you. They need practical
(how to) advice they can act on.
6. Quality - The higher the quality of your free content, the more you
stand out from the competition. Free, quality content is scarce online.
7. Needs - The better you understand and address potential customers'
specific needs the better for them, and therefore potentially for you.
When these characteristics are used in combination, their powerful effects are
multiplied. For example, Web sites that want to stand out from the crowd should
provide lots of unique, free (but valuable), relevant, practical (how to),
quality content focused on their customers' needs.
Remember, there is no correlation between the length of an article and its
potential value to you and your business.
Think about it ... then ... act on it ...
