Unless you have been living under a rock, (a very small rock with no wi-fi that is) you would have seen the rise of content creation.

Whether you are creating a beautiful blog or stunning imagery for Instagram or Pinterest, you’ve no doubt heard that engaging and high-quality content is king!

The real question is, why should you and your brand be putting a particular emphasis on the content you are putting out to your audience?  

Having the perfect balance of both informative and engaging material to put online could be the key to setting yourself apart from your competitors. The content you create and the value it offers your audience could mean the difference between a consumer choosing your brand over another.

It goes beyond just the particular type of content you are producing rather what message you are trying to send; you can set yourself apart from a competitor through your language choice and the way you present your information. Is your brand serious and professional? Fun and educational? Or a mixture of both? It is important to decide and keep all of your material aligned to your brands personality, so your audience doesn’t get confused.

  3. Search engine optimisation. Good quality content that is consistent and in line with your brand and industry trends tells the search engines that you know what you’re talking about. Making it more likely to be shared on their platforms and potentially being exposed to a wider audience.

Keep an open mind about the content you are creating, create a few pieces put them out into the world and see how they go. Be open to reviewing and reflecting on the work you have done.
