In order to create quality content for your visitors the general principles that you must follow are:

– it has to be relevant to the main topic of the site (about product/products/services,etc)
– the content can fit in the general industry of the website (about related products/services)
– it has to provide value to the visitors (potential customers)

If you do create a website with quality content you will benefit from:

– increased customer-to-client conversions (because they understand why but also how to use your product/service)
– increased search engine traffic ( because more pages with content mean more visibility, along with the long tail of search)
– more natural, quality and relevant links ( because they will be pointing from established sites in the same industry as yours, from within the context and with the relevant keywords)

If you are wondering where to get quality content, it is quite simple and hard at the same time because the best way to obtain quality content is to write it yourself thus the chances of having a duplicate content will be null. If you don’t have any writing experience, you should start writing because you and only you knows what your product is about, you know how to promote it the best. We offer you a small list of how to do it:

– start writing (any amount of text, on a regular basis)
– you must focus on the benefits of your product
– format the text for the WWW
– provide value and numerous points of view on your product
– keyword research is imperative
– write natural titles and content

By writing quality content for your site you will get more targeted traffic and will most likely help you to increase conversions. These are the reasons:
Getting more traffic onto your website:

– people will link to valuable content, which will increase your website search engine rankings
– valuable content will also generate word-of-mouth advertising (the most appreciated type of advertising available)
– by adding quality (unique) content, you make your site findable by a much wider array of words (search queries)

Increasing conversions:

– by getting more and more traffic the amount of potential customers will increase (at least theoretically), thus increasing conversions

– while reading your unique & valuable material, the visitors of your website will have not only more time but also ideas of purchasing your product/service

– when providing value to your visitors (potential customers), they will be more likely to remember you when they are in need of the product/service you provide

Don’t know what to write about? Although there are many ways of writing content that appeal to the visitors, there is only one important principle: the content written is targeted to provide value. We offer you a small list of types of content that you might use on your website:

– about how your product or the service you provide is important (on a regular basis or once in a while,etc.)
– about the different types of the product or service you provide
– advantages of using the product, benefiting from the service you have to offer
– basic information regarding the product and basic usage information

In order to attract more and more visitors, quality content shouldn’t be text only as many people will get bored reading page after page. In order to provide value you must insert one of the following:

– audio information in mp3 format or similar
– quality images (high resolution)
– videos (tutorials as well as interesting and catching ads)
– reviews, testimonials and comments regarding your product

All things considered, by providing quality content you will attract more and more visitors thus increasing your chances for more sales because these visitors are potential clients. It is a known fact that a stolen content won’t be taken into consideration by search engines which will most likely ignore your website).
