5 Tips To Writing Creative Content That Works

September 20, 2021

More and more we are hearing about how we need to have quality, informative copy on our website; gone are the days of ‘keyword stuffing’.  Google and other search engines are constantly tweaking their algorithms.  We need to be able to keep up.  Writing creative content is the way to stay ahead.

Not only do we need to be sure that search engines will like what they find, but just as importantly, they need to engage and persuade our audience too.

Here are five things to think about when writing creative content for websites.

1.     Do Your Homework

Before you can even begin to produce effective content you need to know who, what, why, and how.

The way you write your content will depend on these answers and many more so make sure you have asked and answered as many as possible.

2.     Be Compassionate

Write from the point of view of the customer.

Many years ago when I first started out in the marketing industry, I went to a seminar and one thing that really stuck with me was a comment by one of the speakers, “Forget about your I’s.”  What he really meant was “I’s”.

Far too often we see copy on websites that talks about what the company has done and what they sell.  E.g. ‘I started this company because’ or ‘Our xyz product is the best on the market’.  While those things may be true, all the customer cares about is how your product or service is going to help them.

So I will slightly change what that speaker said and reword it to say – “Refocus your eyes”.  Explain how your product/service can help your client instead of listing what it can do.

Successful Marketing Starts with a Plan

You wouldn’t build a house without a blueprint, why would you start your marketing without one?

3.     Be Unique

It is highly unlikely, even in a niche market, that you are the only person selling your product or service.  You can already name your main competition, or you should be able to.

Maybe you need an outsider to look at what you do and to give you a different perspective.  Perhaps your stuffy office is beginning to feel claustrophobic.  Take your laptop, or notebook, and sit outside to write.  It’s amazing how a different environment can give you a whole new outlook on things.

4.     Keep It Simple

We live in a very busy world.  We are constantly competing with others, ourselves, and time in general.  When someone visits your website they need to know in an instant that they are in the right place and what you offer is exactly what they are looking for.

Avoid long-running sentences that never seem to end and have no punctuation or one single thought (like this one).

OK so that was a rather silly, or some would say a ‘unique’ explanation, but you get what I mean.

5.     Show You Care

By presenting your product or service in a simple to understand and unique way, you allow your customer to make an informed decision. But that’s not the whole story.  If you genuinely care about them as a person and that comes across in your content, they will see you as someone they can trust.  Trust is worth more than any amount of fancy gimmick or promotion.

How many times have you bought from a company because they were referred to you by a friend?  Sometimes they might not be the cheapest option but because your friend trusts them, so do you.  Your copy must understand the needs of your customer.  Show that you care about them and they will be far more likely to buy from you.

Writing creative content is an art.  With research, compassion, creativity, simple explanations, and concern, it can and will make your website stand out from the rest.
