Content – what does “good” look like?
Good content is an incredibly valuable asset in today’s digital world. With the abundance of information available online, creating content that is engaging, informative, and relevant can help to distinguish a brand, website, or individual from the rest. High-quality content has the power to attract and retain a loyal audience, establish credibility and authority, and foster trust between the content creator and their readers, listeners, or viewers.
Here at Talking IoT, we are passionate about making sure we deliver this high-quality content to our audience and supporting you as a contributor to get the very best out of your engagement with us. To help guide you through this process, we have put together an overview of what to consider when submitting content to us.
Style – your content should be well written, free of grammatical errors using clear and concise language to engage the reader.
Topics – Relevance is particularly important in today’s digital world, where there is an abundance of content available on almost every topic imaginable. To stand out, good content needs to be specifically targeted to its intended audience, addressing their needs and interests in a way that is both engaging and informative.
Audience – content should be tailored to the specific interests and needs of the audience, taking into account their demographics, preferences, and motivations. Good content should provide value to its audience, either by providing helpful information, insights, or guidance on a specific topic or subject, or by presenting new or unique perspectives that capture the reader’s attention.
Credibility – good content should be credible and trustworthy. It should be well-researched, with accurate and up-to-date information, and should be presented in a way that is transparent and honest. This helps to establish the authority of the content creator, and fosters trust between the creator and their audience.
