Writing content for your site is one of the important aspect in your online journey. I doesn’t matter whether, you develop a video or image. Your main objective is to communicate something to internet users. They don’t know you and you don’t know them. Most importantly they’re not interest in your story
It doesn’t matter whether you’re creating a joke or writing about anything. But don’t take people for granted. They’re human beings, capable of reasoning. However, there’re five basic methods of writing content
Firstly prepare your story/content thoroughly. Conduct an in depth research about the content you want to write about.

You can label them as bullet form, numbers, # etc. Sub headlines enable the reader to go through your content step by step in a logical fashion.

Be what you’re. What I mean by this is that don’t imitate other writers, don’t copy their content style of writing, leave them out of the picture. In any event they’ have their own content, completely disinterested in your story You’re writing for internet users not your competitors. Therefore don’t impress irrelevant people. You’re writing for people who are interested in your content.
Something very important online is your site and it’s visitors as well as site content thereof. Your site is your brand. It represents you, content creator
Lastly, please take note of Google guidelines, readers and some basic rules of writing online content. Much has been said about Google Panda, Search Engine optimization, Google analytics, etc., etc. There’re millions of articles/websites about these topics online
The methods outlined above are no silver bullet or magic formula about content writing. They’re just basic things on how to write quality, effective content online.
It doesn’t end here. You need to market your content, so that it attracts large pool of readers. People hate poorly developed content. Therefore don’t underestimate your readers/traffic.
