How to Prepare Content Your Audience Likes

In creating your content, your main concern is how you can catch the visitor’s attention. Training it to make it easy to scan and in provides the visitor’s needs on where to go next. You will need several tricks to do so.

Teaching easy tricks the audience likes

Training your text comes in two different kinds of tricks, the tricks you like and the tricks your audience likes. There’s no doubt that training your text to do the tricks you like will definitely make you happy, but that doesn’t make your audience happy at all. You might be thinking that those tricks are good enough but in reality it’s not.

Visitors may come to your site, scan them and skim over the text. If they feel intrigued by their initial scan, they will try to skim read and if they find something interesting and catches their full attention, then they will decide to read it.

Below are the simple ways in training your text to make it easier to scan.

• Paragraph Headings. Make sure to have a proper heading for your page, and depending on the length, you should break up contents with paragraph heading throughout. Avoid placing a heading before each paragraph, that’s too much. Breaking up longer text into a smaller portion allows your readers to consume it.

• Internal Linking. Linking content to other relevant parts of the site is one of the major opportunities that business websites missed. Your site’s navigation allows the visitors to find what they are looking for but depending on it too much may force them to know what they are really interested in finding. In order to help the visitors to get anywhere they want to quicker and requiring less effort, adding links to your content streamlines is necessary.

• Bolded Text. To allow visitors to see the key points as they scan your content, bolding the key words, phrases and sentences is helpful. Keep in mind, you bold the text because it’s important and not just because you wanted a keyword in bold as well.

• Bullet Points. Bullet points is one of the most effective way to have your visitors read the key information with reading the every word of the content. Usually readers just read the bulleted lists and ignore everything else.

You can use bullet points to break up your content and give an easy way to read bits of information without going through the whole paragraph. This can also be used to link other areas within your site and adds more information without messing up the content of the page.

Training your content helps you to direct visitors to the areas on your site that wanted to and you’re not just teaching your visitors to connect with the site but you also help them in finding the right information they need.
