Best Practices for Creating Meaningful Content

Reflect your organisation’s goals and user’s needs

Your organisation’s goals should reflect the needs of your users. You can learn about your users’ needs through market research, user research, and web metrics analysis.

Understand how user’s think and speak about a subject

Organise your content in a way that makes sense to your users, and you’ll also improve your search engine optimisation (SEO).

Communicate to people in a way that they understand

Embracing plain writing principles helps with this.

Be useful

By being purposeful in the content that you include, and omit the needless.

Stay up-to-date and and remain factual

When new information becomes available, update your content or archive it.

Be accessible to all people

 You have a responsibility to make sure that all people can access and benefit from your information.

Be consistent

Following style guides, both for language and design, helps people understand and learn what you are trying to communicate.

Be able to be found

Make sure that users can find your content both through internally through navigation and also externally through search engines.

Help define the requirements for the overall site

Content should drive design, structure, etc

Content Lifecycle

Producing compelling and sustainable content means that you need to understand and follow the content lifecycle.

  • Audit and Analysis: Conduct stakeholder interviews, competitive analysis, objective analysis and evaluation of the content environment.
  • Strategy: Determine ownership areas, taxonomy, workflow for content production, voice and brand definition.
  • Plan: Decide on the right content management system (CMS), metadata plan, communications plan, and migration plan.
  • Create: Write content, produce assets, conduct quality assurance, and alway make time for search engine optimisation.
  • Maintain: Plan for regular auditing, determine measurable targets for success, and implement a model for continuous improvement.

The very best content strategies are those that focus on getting you noticed in the searches that bring the best customers to your website. In short, it’s not about being popular or following the latest trend, it’s about relevance, accessibility and being there when customers need you.

We look at the bigger picture to help you grow your audience and achieve your business goals through a fully formed content strategy that includes:

  • Written content
  • Video content
  • Social content
  • Podcast content
  • Ad content
  • Content calendars
