Conventional Content? No One’s Got Time for That

November 2, 2017
OK, maybe that seems a bit harsh. If you have a website, you need content. And, if you are like the vast majority of companies with websites, you have way too much (or far too little) content. Moreover, let’s face it, it’s not great.To succeed on the web, your content needs to be GREAT. Better than the competition. Sparkling. Fill in your choice of superlatives here ________________.

However, even the best content ever needs to be consumable. And, by that, I mean scannable. Forget everything you learned in school. Well, not everything…nouns and verbs are useful. But there is no need for long, involved paragraphs. No one’s got time for that.

Not All Content is Created Equal; Make it Scannable — or Don’t Bother

  • Fall in love with bullet points
  • Use short sentences and paragraphs
  • Don’t be afraid to use bold, but be judicious
  • Add links for credibility! Like this one.
  • Add headings to break up the dull grey text.
  • While you’re at it, all images to keep the conversation lively.

One last note…

This is less about scannability and more about readability. Make your content interesting. Make it FUN! Whether you are writing it or are hiring a copywriter, run it through your own BS meter; give it a good read through. Would you read this copy if you found it online? Does it help or hinder someone’s interest in connecting with you?

Simply put, if they are not reading it (at least some of it that catch their eye) what is the possible point of having words on the page at all?

OK… you can stop worrying about your content now. We got this. Contact Harmonia Media today for a free consultation about your content and your entire digital marketing program.
