janlgordon's curator insight, August 26, 2016 12:21 AM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Alice Elliott because it shows how to write articles from the readers' point of view.

 

Create content that your audience wants to read.

 

Improve Your Subscriber Rate With the Target Market in Mind

 

A blog post that is focused more on the writer will not get much attention. I agree that knowing who your readers are and crafting a message just for them can go a long way.

 

Elliot shows how your business can change your content strategy that appeals to the needs and desires of your community.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Successful blog posts provide a solution to what the readers want. This takes sufficient research and a unique style of writing that is in your own voice.

 

  • Ask whether your niche is both popular and clear to your community. Offer something special that goes beyond what other blogs are publishing.

 

  • Improve the readability of your blog with a good design and layout that is not confusing. Make it easy to read and appealing to your readers.

Want your content to go viral? Then you've got to read this post.

 

Written by Kerry JonesKelsey Libert, and Kristin Tynski for Harvard Business Review (HBR), this article discusses recent research that nails the formula for creating viral content. The formula parallels with storytelling elements that make for great stories.

 

Yay! As the authors say, "Marketers wanting to increase viral potential can create the ideal configuration of arousal and dominance for reaching a massive audience by incorporating the right emotional combinations into their content."

 

They not only share the research around the formula, they also provide links to great examples to back up their points.

Joel Friedlander suggests to pick a fight or rant. In my experience "making mistakes" is likely to attract attention too. Everyone likes to be an editor, and not merely in the writers' world. 
I'm going to have the grandfather I never knew tell readers how to. How to what? Whatever. TTYL keep your ear to the ground.

There are several great ideas in this article for more traffic to your blog. Content curation is on the list. No surprise there.

Pick one or two to test and see if your readership picks up. It's worth a try.
