How to Create a Content Strategy that Leverages Creativity?


You’ve finished your blog post and you’re ready to publish the new, highly anticipated piece of content. Just one problem: how do you go about attracting readers? Some people might say it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to create high-quality content, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t make every post count. The key is having a clear strategy in place to ensure your time isn’t wasted.


Know Your Audience

Before you publish the content, make sure to do some research on which social media platforms your audience members are most active. You’ll want to determine what type of content they respond best to and then tailor your message accordingly. This will not only help with creating a content strategy but also with evaluating it afterwards.

The first step is doing a little research on the demographics of your followers and who is engaging with your posts the most. If you have a blog for business owners, you might have a lot more engagement from individuals in their 20s–30s than those in their 50s–60s. In this case, you should adjust your content strategy to focus on topics that will appeal to those in their 20s–30s. If you’re going after a more general audience, then including articles that pertain to different age groups may be more effective.


Where To Find Inspiration

To come up with a content strategy that leverages creativity, it’s important to find inspiration. You might be tempted to go for the traditional topics like “best practices” or “why your company is different,” but you should take some time and really consider what your audience wants and needs.

What do they want to learn about? What are their challenges? What information can you provide for them that will make their lives easier?


For instance, many people decide to start a blog as a way to make extra money. They want to know how much they should charge for various services and how easy (or difficult) it is to break into this market. This means that the first few posts on your blog might be about pricing and what you need in order to get started.


Developing The Content Strategy

A content strategy is a clear plan for producing content for your audience. It defines the type of content you’ll write, who it will be targetted to, and when it will be released.

Developing an effective content strategy starts with understanding what kind of content resonates with your target audience. Knowing this helps you create more relevant topics that can drive traffic to your site.


Once you know what kind of topics resonate with your audience, find out how often they expect new posts. Do they like daily updates? Weekly roundups? Monthly newsletters? Then, set up a schedule for publishing your targeted content.


Linking back to the idea of relevance, include different types of media in your posts to make them more interesting to read. Try adding multimedia (such as sound files or video clips) or interactive elements (such as quizzes or polls). This way, readers can engage with the post and share it on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter — even if they don’t have time to read it all.

It’s also important to think about how often you publish content so that readers know when there are new posts waiting for them! Publishing on a set schedule makes sure readers know when they can come back to see what’s new on your site. One strategy you might want to use is publishing posts at the same time every day so readers know when they can check back in with you without having to wonder when something might be.




Ways to Promote the Content

A great way to attract readers is by using a promotion strategy. There are a lot of different ways you can promote your content, but one of the most popular methods is social media. For example, if you have a post about fitness that includes a recipe for healthy oatmeal smoothies, you could post the link on your Facebook page and ask your followers to share it with their friends. By giving away free prizes in exchange for shares, you’ll be able to encourage people to take action.


Another effective promotion strategy is email marketing. You can use email marketing to send links or download links directly to your subscribers’ inboxes. This is an excellent method for businesses because many people check their emails on a daily basis and they are already familiar with the sender’s name, so there is less risk of your content being ignored or deleted out of hand. And lastly, don’t forget about good ol’ word-of-mouth advertising! People love telling others about their latest discovery; no matter how hard we try, it seems like nothing will stop word-of-mouth advertising. Who knows? If someone mentions your blog post on social media — which has thousands (or even millions!) of viewers — then you might find yourself with new fans!

Summing it UP

What’s the point of creating content if no one ever sees it? It’s up to you to promote your content in order to maximize its effectiveness. Here are some ways you can promote your content:


  1. Let your audience know it exists

  2. Use social media

  3. Utilize SEO

  4. Distribute via email

  5. Make it accessible
