How to Create Content for Your Website?

 

How to create content for your website is probably the hardest thing to do. Content marketing could be very lucrative if you know how to manipulate the wording. It’s all about how you word things to make it appealing to others. At the same time, you don’t want to lie or make it sound like you are writing to brag. Your words are to represent the sophistication of your business. To inform and teach the rest of the world who are looking to you for guidance.

Today I am going to give you some tips on how to create content for your website. We will go through some common issues and writer block that most people have. Where are we going to find content and how to apply what you researched. I don’t know about you but I have writer’s block all the time especially when I need writing content on my website.

Now that you have created a website and you would like to add some content to your website. What is the first step you should do? Let’s start by brainstorming. What topic do you want to talk about? Only think about what fascinates you, what you are passionate about and you do not mind sharing your expertise to the public.

Common issue

The most common issue is concentration. We are very busy. We wake up in the morning make our coffee, wash up, and if you have children you have to get them ready for school. Hats to all the stay at home parents. That’s a full-time job right there. Make breakfast and then preparing their lunches.

You go through all the screaming and shouting of children looking for their shoes, clothes, and whatever they feel like they would need to take with them to school so the teacher can just take it away and call you for a teacher conference with a certain somebody.

Not to mention the spouse. They stump out from their sleepy cave scratching their sides and do not make the beast angry. Gently hand over the coffee and let them enjoy 5 cups before you can attempt to say, “good morning sweetheart, sleep well?” Reality check!

Then time, where do you find the time to do all your research for good quality content? Many of us don’t have that luxury when you still have to work full time to pay off that brand new truck you didn’t need but want to show off to your friends.

Even if you are single when you come back from a hard day’s work you want to relax and chill for…ever if that possible. After chilling, you’re hungry and you don’t want to get up. Now you’re now HANGRY. So you just grab whatever that’s in the fridge. Leftover pizza from two days ago, yuck.

Writer’s Block

Writer’s block is another common issue people have. It’s common in professional writers and beginners alike. The tip here is what I mentioned earlier is brainstorm. Come up with some topics. Like we did in grades school. Circle the topic word and extend them out by drawing a line or arrow to another word that is related to the topic.

After doing so write a paragraph for each circled word. A paragraph is 5 complete sentences. Once you had finished your paragraphs connect all of them together and write your content.

Sometimes we have to look back at what we were taught as a little kid and relearn it again. Always keep writing even if it doesn’t make sense. You can do that during the editing and proofreading process.

Coming up With a Captivating Title

This is also my issue that I have as well and is to come up with the captivating title to entice people to read. For example what title would you prefer:

They took some pictures with the customers behind the building.” Or

They shot the customers behind the building.” What is more captivating? Sentence two right?

Another tip here is to get your reader’s attention. To engage them in your content, keep them hooked. When you have an interesting headline or a title you get more visitors.

Once you have captured your reader’s attention make it an interesting read and keep them on their toes. Give them examples, do a comparison, and show them what they can do to help or achieve.

The purpose of the captivating title is to keep your reader interested in what you are trying to convey. Even with a great title but your story is boring they won’t stay long because you’re going off topic. Do not go off topic.

How Many Images to Use?

After your content is complete, you must add a few images to your post to make it look pretty. Using relevant images is important because you don’t want to just randomly add an image that is totally off topic.

Your readers might think you’re a little non-trustworthy. That’s not what you want. You want them to trust you. Remember you are in the business of building brand and trust. Trust is what you want from your readers.

Adding some internal links and external links to your post. Search engines like that sort of links and backlinks. Backlinks aren’t what they use to be anymore but it’s still good to have them as well.

Conclusion

I hope that these tips that are mentioned above help you with how to create content on your website. Let’s recap:

  • Must have concentration
  • Time is important
  • Brainstorm your topic
  • Come up with a captivating title or headline
  • Keep writing even when you have writer’s block.
  • Add relevant images
  • Add internal links and external links
  • Proofread and edit

  1. As someone who has been writing content just a month ago, the struggle is real but I believe that it is worth it especially for my growth as a writer, blogger, and enthusiast to learn to express my experiences to the world.

    Sometimes you may feel like will never ever be able to get out of a rut especially after all the life’s stresses and issues are trying to get to you. At the same time, you can’t even write concisely because of the distractions around you.

    This article is really helpful to at least narrow down the important aspects of the writing process. It is very much helpful to anyone who is starting out or even professionals really.

  2. Hi, Kellyee.

    First of all, thank you so much for this helpful post. I have days, where I am not even done with one article and I already could begin with the next. Then, there are times when all goes blank -Writer’s block, I assume. I’ve done the following since the last few days: I bought myself a special notebook and every time an idea pops up I jot it down for future references.

    I do that and meditation. It helps me clear my mind, as well. Guess what, I actually find it more difficult to add images. Sometimes it takes ages to find the fitting one. Then, at times, the image looks squeezed in after publication, or the text shifted and is all over the place. It’s gotten better already though, I must add.

    As for yourself, keep up the great work. Your site looks great, and I can read it clear here that you’re over the “writing content” issue.

    Many blessings to you,

    Keryn

    • Thank you for the kind words Keryn. I too at days find it hard to write but I know that if I write from the heart it seems to be coming out more naturally then to make things up. So no, I haven’t overcome it yet. However, I do find it easier now. My goal is to write over 2000 word article and I still find it difficult to do. Slowly but surely we will get there and overcome our obstacles.

      Thanks for stopping by Keryn.

  3. Wow thank you for the tips you have discussed in creating content for my website! I will admit that I suffer writers block from time to time and always seem to be running out of ‘time’. I love the humble way your post acts as a reminder to all content writers about getting back to basics! Thanks again!

    • Hey Jess thank you for dropping by you are very welcome and just write what’s on your mind and move on then go back and edit your article, that’s what I do and sometimes I missed some sentences that I want to take out. The great thing about today’s work is that you can always go edit the embarrassing part after you published it. I do it all the time.

      We are human we make mistakes so just go at it. Once again thank you for visiting me you have a great day.

    • Hi, Dave welcome to my website! Thank you for your kind words. I try to simplify it to the general public. I find it easier to read simple easy terms rather hard and difficult to understand verbiage. I am so glad you love my post. The more you write the better the information comes to you. Remember to write from the heart and it should come with ease. And even now I do over think my writing as well but I just keep writing on what’s on my mind and then go back to edit.

      All the best to your writing Dave.

  5. Some good tips here! One I’d add that works well for me is brainstorming for topics, because I used to finish one post, then would take two days trying to come up with the topic for my next post. After that happened a few times, I sat down and came up with 25-30 different topics for future posts, and continued to add to that list whenever I thought of something else. Now, I’m able to start thinking about my next post before I finish my current one, and can choose what I’m in the mood to write about from a bunch of different options, instead of scrambling to come up with a topic and having to write about that even if I’m not in the mood.

    • Jordan thanks for coming by. That’s great I love it that by the time you are done with one you already have some topics on stand by just waiting for you to make it come alive. Wow, that’s excellent. If more people do it like that they wouldn’t run out of things to write about.

      Here’s another one, skim through what you just wrote about and pick out what jumps at you and write it down continue down the post and see what else pops at you and jot that down. By the time you are done hopefully you have a bunch of topics you can write about. Possibilities are endless.

    • Hey there I am glad that my post helps you out a little. It’s my job to guide you on how to create content for beginners and advanced alike. Just remember to jot down a topic you want to write about and brainstorm at least for titles. Write a couple of paragraphs under each title and go from there.

  7. Hi Kelyee,
    Great post. These are awesome ideas for writer’s block!
    I remember when I started writing content, and I just couldn’t seem to write long enough posts when I did have an idea. Now I rarely write under 2000 words, lol.
    It’s amazing how things improve with lots of practice.
    And your images and internal/external links are spot on.
    Another thing Google likes is if you can imbed a video. I’m still not confident enough to make my own, so I’ll often find one on Youtube that’s relevant and short, and add that. Just another idea…
    Cheers,
    Suzanne

    • Thanks for the idea, Suzanne. I too am still not confident in making my own youtube videos just yet. Makes me nervous. More like camera shy hahaha.

      Embedding Youtube videos into your page is an excellent thing to do as well. Keep your readers engaged.

  8. Awesome post here. Thanks for the tips. I have been struggling to write sometimes. But I made some improvement since I started writing articles in WA. Practice makes perfect. Morning time is the best time for me to concentrate. So I usually write articles in the morning.

    • That’s great that you found a me time in the morning to do your writing. First thing in the morning when the mind is fresh, cool.

      I wish I have the morning to start with.
