2 Tips on How to Write Content for the Web

Writing content has evolved to a new level. Before, people would write long articles for human interest stories because they had the time to read. These days, people just skim through an article, as it has been said that 80% of people read headlines, but only 20% of them read the content, according to Neil Patel who based it on Copyblogger’s data. That’s how fast people’s attention span is right now.   For people to get their attention,  here are 2 Tips on How to Write Content for the Web. 

  1. Write a headline that is an attention-grabber. To catch people’s attention, your headline must give them an idea of what you are writing about and letting them know what’s in it for them. It has to say it all. An example would be “A Barista-turned-Entrepreneur” or “8 Tips to Sharpen Your Pencil” or something like that. The more unusual, the better. 
  2. The other tip is to write content that’s not been written yet. I know, I know, you’re all going to go, “Nah, everything’s on the Net these days.” Ah, but are you sure about that? There are still many stories out there waiting to be heard. You just have to find it. It’s not really spinning an old article into a new one. If you could, find a new angle to it and write that down. Who knows? You may have stumbled upon a gold mine. 

Well, these are just two of the many ways to create content for the web. I based them on Neil Patel’s blog, there’s no doubt about that. If you want to check his article out, go ahead – It’s an interesting read.
