Great Content for New Media

Is About Communities . . .

Optimization . . .

And Authentic Engagement.

Online content is like the weather; we complain about it or ignore it, but rarely do anything about it . . .

even if poor content is all that stands between us and successful marketing or business.

Communities and optimized web sites or social media pages also need plenty of superior content.

The good news: improving your content isn't as hard as you think.

The better news? We're here to help get you started

Where Old and New Media Collide

Your Audience--They're picky . . .

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow . . .

Task-oriented . . .

And Readers!

You can divide any crowd of internet users into two groups:

Self-styled experts or controllers, and active members of knowledge communities

But both groups seek the same kind of social media age affiliations:

Connections that are voluntary, temporary and tactical

To appeal to both groups, your content must support any reader's search for such affiliations

They Want Something Different

A new expert or leader with a unique perspective

An inclusive, sharing community, or

Whatever . . .

First decide if you prefer to stay ahead of the crowd, or to build tribes or teams

Or some combination of the two

New Media Content Must Be




(and entertaining)

Remember, everyone reading your content is asking the same brutal question: So What? . . .

While listening to their favorite radio station, WIIFM-- What's In It For Me?

And if they're still waiting for a good answer in seven seconds, they'll move on

So follow these four basic rules of content writing to hold and nurture their interest

(Plus, remember to show, not tell)

Give Me Content With Value!

They'll only accept content rich with


Proof, and

Takeaway value.

It makes them feel engaged and special

Then make sure you offer plenty of value.

Every time you write anything from a headline to a white paper, make sure it has

Relevance, proof and value.

If it's missing one of these, it's as unstable as a stool with just two legs

With plenty of all three, we'll come back for more

Engaging Content . . .

Is authentically satisfying

Gives us choices and recognition

Empowers us to grow and gain real insight

After someone reads your superior content, they'll appreciate the obvious effort you put into it

And want to work with youwhatever it is you do

Treat them with respect and improve their lives, and you'll make them loyal fans

Great New Media Content

Generates discussion

nuclear message
