Content marketing is great, right? But what is the point of writing content if no one's going to read it? You're just wasting your time. So here's the good news. I'm going to tell you the top 4 types of content that people LOVE.

Tips Articles

No matter what kind of business you have, you can always offer your readers tips. And the best part about tips articles? It shows readers that you know what you're talking about. It also shows them that you are concerned about their needs and helping them, even if they don't make a purchase from you. This makes them more likely to come back to you when they're ready to purchase.

Secrets Articles

Who doesn't love a secret? So when you write secrets articles, people are definitely going to read them. By the way, want to really get them interested? Make it a secret article about getting more business or saving money or time. People love that. Who doesn't?

Mistakes Articles

OK, everyone makes mistakes. But if you tell people about the mistakes that other people make and help them avoid making them, they're going to love you and your business. And, if you help them avoid making a mistake that might have cost them money, they'll love you even more.

Reasons Articles

OK, so this does NOT mean you should write a whole bunch of articles like:

3 Reasons Why My Company's Better Than X Company
4 Reasons Why You Should Hire Me

Yeah, those types of articles have their place sometimes. But to use them all the time is boring and narcissistic. Instead, use articles like:

4 Reasons to Chill Your Butter When Making a Tort
3 Reasons to Choose an Ox Hair Paintbrush

Find reason topics that you can use that relate to your business. Like the tips articles, it gives readers information and shows you're concerned about their needs.

Top Articles

You might have noticed I used this in my own article. The best part about this type of content? It can fit with any of the other types of content or it can stand alone, as it is in this article. Really want to grab someone's attention? Use the word top with the word tips, secrets, or mistakes. Double exposure, double enticement, double chances for enthralling a reader and making a sale!

Get Them Reading

Use one of these types of content above and you'll have people reading your content to see what you have to offer. When I write my content, I generally will use one of these types of content. That is, unless a client requests something different. Because they are the ones who know what they want.
