Marketing Strategies: What Draws the Eye?

07/27/2013 Adrienne N. Hester

Content marketing is a powerful tool for increasing your company's visibility and authority in a field. If your company is investing in content marketing, you are likely producing a valuable body of work you hope will be accessible to clients.

However, if you want to draw an audience to your work, keep in mind the way information is organized is almost as important as the information itself. Here are a few tips for keeping information user-friendly:

  1. People Love Lists. Use lists if you want to engage site visitors from beginning to end. Lists are easy to conceptualize, and they encourage people to read an entire post from start to finish.
  2. Keep Your Content Fresh. Humans crave newness and will invariably be drawn to novel information. If the material you present isn't engaging, people will navigate away from your site in the click of a mouse. Satisfy your audiences' need for originality by keeping information new.
  3. Make it Pithy. Many people have short attention spans, especially online. Don't overwhelm your audience with lengthy posts. Break up your information and keep it short so people will remember it better.
  4. Pictures Draw the Eye. Don't hesitate to incorporate pictures and color into your content. Too many images can make a page overwhelming, but a few images will attract attention. In addition, make sure that your company logo is attractive and prominently displayed.
  5. Ask Questions. People are interested in themselves, which means they will be interested in hearing their own input. Use this to your advantage by posing questions and giving people a chance to interact with your content.
