Re-invent,Re-incarnate,Re-Do Your Old Content

As with everything in life things change, products and services change,new businesses come and old businesses go.

 

As these things all happen your blog content can become old hat, some links no longer work,websites are cancelled. Affiliate programs close down or are cancelled.

As I was doing this 100 Day Blogging Challenge. By accident I discovered some of the blog posts that I created previously had dissapeared of my blog.

Luckily when I went to the wayback machine I was able to find them, there was lots of great information in the posts.

Only problem is the business I was in changed, I left it a couple of years after they made some changes I didn’t like. I just saw a video a few days ago saying they where going bankrupt which was not really surprising to me considering the changes they made previously.

So some things on the posts needed to be changed or updated but the majority of information and content is still great today 2 years later.

If you are brand new to blogging this will not be the case, but if you have been around for a few years like me.  I am sure you will be able to find some old blog posts which need some refreshing, or possibly rewrote completely.

Here are some of the things you should check when redoing your posts,

 

1.Have you a nice picture with your brand or logo?

2. Are the software and tools links on your posts still working, or do they need updated?

3. Is the business opportunity or opportunities you promote still exist, if not then update them with your new ones.

4.Is your post long enough, a few years ago Google was happy with a 300 word post. Now it is better to do articles with at least 500 words, preferably even over 1000 words. As they generally get a lot more traffic and rank better than short ones. In fact I recently did a 3000 word article as they rank even better again.

5. Make sure your content is unique and not copied from other websites or ezine directories, if you want the maximum effect from them.

6. Make sure everything on your post ties in properly with your new branding logos etc.

One of the mistakes a lot of new bloggers make is not having a purpose for each blog post. If you go back over your first post chances are that you made this mistake too. Just because it is an old post does not mean that people do not come across it on the internet or from Google.

So make sure as well as updating the post you repurpose it so it does something.

If your content is similar to the one on other sites, no one will link to it. This means no backlinks to your site, and thus, lower rankings.

  • The first thing you need to do is to check for the uniqueness of your content. There are many online tools you can use for this purpose.
  • When writing for the internet, be sure to make your content engaging, concise, and to the point. Our attention span is decreasing day-by-day. Therefore, you don’t want to sound boring in any way.
  • Read your articles loud before posting them. This can help you identify mistakes that you could have made when writing. This is also a good check for natural tone and flow.

No matter what content you are creating, it should always be covered with motivation, passion, and honesty. The aforementioned tips are ideal for any content creator out there that would like to have a successful blog or website.

  1. Create Strong Headlines

A great headline is of great benefit to your website: it builds interest and invites readers in. According to statistics, the percentage of people that read your headlines is 80%, however, only 20% of them read your other content. This is the main reason why the headline is as important as the post or article itself.

An example of a great headline: “How to Turn on Your Marketing Machine”. This is a very interesting headline that intrigues anyone that would like to become a marketer, or is already in the marketing field. Such a person cannot help but be a little curious after reading such a title.

Consider taking some good time to create a good headline. If possible, create a few of them and select the one that you feel is the best. Don’t create a headline for the sake. It is the first thing that people see, and it makes them decide whether to continue reading your article or not.

  1. Create Engaging Content

An engaged reader hangs on to your every word and takes in everything you say or write. However, the only way to get engaged readers, is to come up with engaging content. Here are some tips that can help you write engaging content.

Have an Essential Introduction

People are very quick to judge on blog posts and articles. Most readers make the decision whether to continue reading a piece, after going through the first few sentences of the post. If you are caring about your readers, be sure to let them know why they should read your post in the introduction part of your article.

Leave Your Audience with Questions

This does not necessarily mean that you write an incomplete post, rather, it involves including questions that make your audience reflect on the knowledge you offer them.

Include Relevant Stories

People love reading stories. You should hence consider implementing them in your posts. They can also help to emphasize a point. Additionally, they help the reader learn and make your posts engaging.

Lastly, if you write content that sparks a lot of comments, search engines will realize that your content is essential. They will hence not hesitate to rank it higher.

  1. Provide Solutions

Every time you write content, make sure that it solves a certain problem. Ask yourself what the main task of a search engine is. It is meant to offer answers, right? People type their queries on search engines expecting to be presented with solutions.

The desire for knowledge and information in regards to a particular topic is what drives people to your website. Something else that you should know is that people not only want answers, they want them fast. Hence, make sure that your content can be easily scanned so that people can get information as quickly as possible. Lastly, when delivering your answer, be sure to have supporting information.

  1. Be Accurate in Your Information Sourcing

As earlier said, you need to have supporting information so as to be able to deliver a great answer. Information sourcing is therefore something that you need to undertake to come up with great content for your site. Additionally, make sure that the information you source is accurate. Imagine writing an article for your blog, and thousands of people read it only to realize later on that some information you included was inaccurate. Can you imagine the amount of negative impact that could have on your company? You should be aware that your company’s blog is a reflection of your business. Therefore, if there are issues with your site, then people will end up having a negative view of your products and services.

It is therefore critical that any stats you include on your blog posts can be verified. Many webmasters are usually more than ready to link to such a statistic and its source. Accuracy is very important as it builds trust with readers and other bloggers too. Writing inaccurate content can damage your name forever as it proves you are untrustworthy.

Here are some things that you should consider when pondering about how to make your blog accurate:

Link to More Content

Make sure to back up your content with as many links as possible. This makes your articles and posts look trustworthy.

Link to Trusted Sources Only

Make sure to link your content to authoritative and trusted sources only. Linking to high-quality sites helps you earn more trust from your audience.

Help Search Engines Rank You

Linking to other sites helps search engines identify what your website is about, and how it can be categorized.

  1. Add Images and Video

People learn differently, right? Some learn better by reading, some by seeing, and others by hearing. The most important thing to note here is that no one learns less through visual aids. Whether you use videos, diagrams, or pictures, they can assist to illustrate your point. Open modern textbooks and you will realize the implementation of pictures to promote the reading experience.

You should thus consider implementing pictures and videos to reinforce your content. Whatever you write about, be sure to use visuals as no one wants to look at plain text at all times. Despite this, only add relevant and valuable visual content.

  1. Write Actionable Content

What is the last content you posted on your blog? Did it tell your readers how they can apply the tips or lessons they learnt right away? The perfect content should give your audience a sense of how they can use the knowledge received. It does not degrade your audience by telling them what to do, but respects them and offers them an assurance that they know how to use the information.

When creating your blog posts, offer users tips on how they can apply what you offer to them. At many times, just writing flawlessly about a certain topic sparks some ideas for your audience.

  1. Create Short and Precise Content

One thing that always works when writing content is to eliminate fluff. Although it is challenging and requires a lot of work, it helps you come up with high-quality content. There is nothing fascinating to your audience other than reading a brief and to-the-point article or blog post with a lot of information.

Therefore, stop focusing on word count and put all your efforts into writing high-quality work.

  1. Update Your Content Often

Starting a website or a blog is a commitment. You can write a couple of posts and articles, and choose to abandon them. However, doing this will not get you any new customer or as many readers as you would want. Additionally, search engines do not like sites that are not updated on a regular basis.

Hence, if you own a content site or blog, you need to update it frequently with high-quality content. Most of the best blogs and websites are constantly updated. In fact, studies show that sites that are regularly updated have a stronger influx of visitors compared to those that are not.

When updating your content, you are free to choose a timeframe to do that. However, make an effort to update your site on a monthly basis.

  1. Don’t Forget SEO

SEO is a factor that you can never afford to forget when writing content for your blog or site. Remember that each time you publish an article, you create a new page that can be ranked by search engines. At this point, search engines, especially Google, will be marketing your content for you.

Blogging itself helps to market your content, but incorporating SEO into your content makes the marketing stronger. This means that you should include keyword research into your content marketing strategies, and optimize your content to be found more by search engines.

High-quality content that speaks to people’s desires plus SEO will continue to drive traffic to your site, month after month. Traffic will certainly lead to leads, and more revenue to you.

  1. Let a Professional Do It

If you are not that much of a good writer and would still want high-quality content for your site, then you could consider outsourcing this work to a professional. Outsourcing your content means that you will have to hire an outside party to handle your project; such as editing your work, or creating new content from scratch on your behalf. As a business person that needs great content, outsourcing can greatly help you out.

Before you go out to hire a writer, be sure to have definite objectives and a specific budget. Later on, go out and find the best possible writer out there. Good writers often have a portfolio that they are ready to show to you. If there are no samples, do not even bother contacting the writer.

After finding a good writer, send them your project requirements, and wait for high-quality content.

Conclusion

Coming up with high-quality content for your site is a choice that you ought to make if at all you are to become successful on the internet. There are millions of websites on the internet today, and high-quality content is the only thing that can make your site stand out. Great content is the only way that you can be able to beat your rivals. High-quality content will help search engines to rank your site. It will also make your readers want to share your posts with their friends.  This will lead to more exposure, leads, and revenue.

Creating original content is the first step that you need to make when thinking about great content. Unique content is loved by search engines, and your readers too. So, make sure that you are always producing new content. Other things that you have to do is to create strong headlines, develop engaging content, and write posts that solve people’s problems. Doing this will help you to grow your audience. Additionally, you should consider writing actionable content, short, and precise content. You should also update your content often. However, if you are not a good writer, you should consider hiring an experienced professional that will develop high-quality content for you.

How To Create Content For Your Blog While Sitting In The Car

I am sure you have heard of listening to audios while sitting in the car before.  This is a habit I have especially if I am travelling somewhere that is an hour or more driving.

The thing is I have a 10 Month old son called Xander and when mummy is away the last thing I want is too disturb him from his morning nap in the car. So I bring my chromebook with me and create my blog posts while he is sleeping like what I am doing right now.

Now of course not everyone will have a sleeping 10 month old child in the car like me. But once again instead of bringing your chromebook with you or laptop and typing out some blog posts here are some other ways that I use to create content.

IMG_5494

If you have your phone hooked up/attached to the window you can create a Facebook live or Periscope. Another alternative is to record an audio I use an App which I have on my iPhone the software costs $197 it works on an iPhone or your desktop or iPad I think it is amazing and it also distributes your podcasts to iTunes and lots of other services as well.

Another thing you can do if you have an iPhone or Samsung smartphone you can talk your blogpost. Yes instead of typing your blogpost you just talk it out loud. This is another of my favourite features for I am really not a great fan of writing, I talk a lot faster than I type that is for sure.

Another possibility is to record a video of yourself in the car talking or providing some interesting content or value on a specific topic, or about everyday stuff happening in your life.  Once you record the video you can then upload it to Amazon S3 Hosting Via EVS.  Upload it to You Tube,Vimeo and also on Facebook as well.

Recently I was surprised when someone who wanted some content from me asked for a ready made interview that I had, luckily I was interviewed on A Google Hangout so I had the video transcribed into a very long blog post. So if you haven’t thought about transcribing your videos before this is another great way to make more blogging content without having to come up with new ideas.

The other thing you can aso do is transcribe your Facebook Live recordings or Periscope recording too.   Or any webinars that you have done, you could of course use this transcribed content for blog posts,books,or E-books.

 

If you are having problems coming up with ideas for new content you can browse through article directories for ideas, check out other competitors blogs or websites, see what upcoming viral topics are on Facebook, Twitter or You Tube.  Just make sure you do not copy and paste content write it in your own words, you change change the numbers do something completely opposite to what they are doing if you want.  Just use it for coming up with some new ideas.

Another great way to come out with blog content is to visit forums in your niche and find out what questions people are asking?  Write a blog post providing the solution to their problems this will be a great way to build lots of new fans and subscribers, if you are giving good advice or solutions.  OR COURSE IF YOU DON’T GIVE GOOD ADVICE OR SOLUTIONS IT CAN HAVE THE OPPOSITE EFFECT..
