I am sure almost everyone has heard the saying ‘you are what you eat.’ That simple statement holds universal truth and can apply to our daily lives as well as our internet marketing success. When you consume something your body is fed and nourished with the food and vitamins you take in. In essence what goes into you contributes to what comes out in the form of energy and effort. The same is true for content management for your website and blog. Add good, relevant topics and substantial copy and the outcome will be that of enthusiasm and focus.
Step one is finding out all you can about the niche market you have chosen to pursue. You don’t need to be an overnight expert but a general understanding helps. As you dig deeper into the subject your knowledge and expertise in presenting the content will improve more and more. Filling up a website with content that produces traffic and converts isn’t easy. However, with the help of content providers and self-publishing (blogging) it can be achieved.
The next step is choosing a good content management system. As I addressed in a previous article there is are a number of providers out there to pick from. I suggest speaking with other webmasters that have good quality content on their sites, laid out in an easy to navigate manner, and ask them for feedback. Once the content starts coming in you’ll be doing your readers and your SEO goals both a favor by having an organized method of placing it on the site.
A lot of the preliminary steps to building a quality website are done before you ever go live online. Making sure there is a good source of news and topics to cover will help keep you on task and enthused about the site. Also developing (or purchasing) a system where your news copy goes up will really make a difference when you are going for keywords and SERP’s that lead to profits. Content is important, it’s what will ultimately give your site authority and boost conversions.
