If you’re thinking that blogs are a thing of the past, I’m here to show you that they’re very much alive and kicking!

Remember the days when blogs were the go-to for everything? Recipes, travel tips, personal stories – they were everywhere! I remember my first computer vividly. It was Christmas, and I was 8 years old, living in Huffman. My dad had just gotten a fancy computer job at Avnet and bought us a family computer. The sound of dial-up internet still brings back so many memories! Well, guess what? Blogs are still incredibly powerful tools for your business. Shareable content can drive traffic to your site, improve your SEO, and boost your brand’s visibility. The key is creating content that your audience finds valuable and wants to share with others.

What Kind of Content is Most Shareable?

So, what types of content are people most likely to share? Let’s break it down:

  • Listicles: Think “Top 10 Ways to Improve Your SEO” or “5 Tips for Writing Engaging Content.” These are easy to read and packed with valuable info.

  • How-To Guides: Step-by-step instructions on solving a problem or achieving a goal. People love practical advice they can apply immediately.

  • Infographics: Visual content that presents information in an easy-to-digest format. Perfect for sharing on social media.

  • Videos and Webinars: Engaging multimedia content that’s great for explaining complex topics or showcasing your expertise.

  • Personal Stories and Case Studies: Authentic narratives that people can relate to. Sharing success stories builds trust and credibility.

  • Interactive Content: Quizzes, polls, and interactive infographics are fun and engaging, making them highly shareable.

How to Create Content That People Want to Share

Now that you know what types of content are shareable, let’s talk about how to create it:

  1. Know Your Audience: Understand their interests, pain points, and preferences. Create content that addresses their needs and answers their questions.

  2. Create Valuable Content: Provide actionable insights and solutions. Content that helps your audience solve problems or achieve goals is more likely to be shared.

  3. Use Engaging Visuals: Enhance your content with images, videos, and infographics. Visuals make your content more appealing and shareable.

  4. Write Compelling Headlines: Craft headlines that grab attention and encourage clicks. Your headline is the first thing people see, so make it count!

  5. Incorporate SEO Best Practices: Use keywords naturally and optimize your content for search engines. This will help your content reach a wider audience.

  6. Leverage Social Proof: Include testimonials, reviews, and user-generated content. People are more likely to share content that others have endorsed.

  7. Encourage Engagement: Ask questions, invite comments, and foster a community. The more people interact with your content, the more likely they are to share it.
