There are literally millions of different websites all with content designed to attract you the consumer. But as we all know some are successful in gaining our interest while many many more are not. So just what does it take to write good quality web content Listed below are 6 of the top skills required to become a successful web content writer:

slide 3:

1.Know and understand your target audience: The key to writing content that people want to read lies in knowing who you are writing for. If you have been asked to produce technical content for a medical website for example then your use of words and style of writing will need to reflect their level of understanding which we can assume will be higher than the average person with no medical knowledge. If you’re writing content for a site that offers general advice on a topic or field then your use of language can be simplified somewhat otherwise your readers may lose interest if they don’t understand everything you have written.

2.Begin in broad terms go on to be more specific: Every topic needs an introduction and it should be broad enough to allow the reader to get a sense of what is to follow. After introducing your topic you can then go on to be more specific in the information that you give allowing your audience to read as little or as much as they wish to before they move on.

3.SEO friendly but not SEO obsessed: Search engine optimization is a key factor in writing successful web content – mainly because it will help you locate and attract your target audience – but if you find yourself mentioning keywords and phrases too often your audience will notice and probably lose interest. Even search engines consider this to be a bad practice and penalize websites that stuff web content with keywords.

slide 6:

4.Short and sweet: Attracting readers is hard enough but maintaining their interest can be even harder. Your content needs to be as concise as possible without compromising on the quality of information provided. The modern web user has a short attention span and if they don’t quickly find the information they are looking for they will simply go elsewhere with so many other sites offering similar information you will need to pay close attention to this in order to be successful.

5.Use sub headings or bullet points: Giving sub headings throughout your content will help the reader to skip to the section that is most relevant to them and bullet points will help them to easily read and remember some of the key points related to the topic. 6.Proof read proof read proof read There is nothing more irritating for a reader than to discover content which is full of spelling or grammatical errors not only does it show that you haven’t taken the time to check it before it has been published but it may also be an indicator that the standard of your content is not particularly high.
