Whether you aim to increase brand awareness, attract new customers, foster brand loyalty, or educate existing and potential customers, it’s crucial to develop a comprehensive content strategy.
Without one, you might end up creating numerous website posts and articles without receiving the results you want. Bear this in mind at the beginning of every content creation cycle.
However, deciding on the types of content that will best support your strategy can be challenging. One approach is to create content for different user intents, such as informational, navigational, or transactional. It could also help to divide your content into the following categories: “newsworthy” and “evergreen”.
This will provide you with a clearer understanding of which type of material should be more prominent in each category and how both can work together to achieve success.
Watch the video to learn about these approaches in greater detail.

As mentioned above, to produce high-quality content, you’ll need to determine user intent and then satisfy it. No matter what type of content you create, it must meet the user’s needs and expectations.
Search intent, also known as user intent, refers to how people express what they anticipate will appear when they enter a query in the search engine. For instance, if you type the keyword, “flowers same day delivery” into the search box, then you would expect to discover some options for flowers with same-day shipping services.
This video will demonstrate how to identify a keyword’s intent so that you can rank well for it.
The next step is to create the content itself.
Small business owners often find content creation difficult due to their limited understanding of the SEO writing process.
In this video, we’re going to look at the three stages of content creation, including prewriting, writing, and editing.
Prewriting involves coming up with an idea, researching it, and planning your content.
To speed up your research process, begin by examining the top 5 results for any given keyword phrase in Google. To gain better insights into your competitors’ content, use SE Ranking’s Content Editor. Simply click the New article button, fill in requested details, and hit Create article.
Once the analysis is completed, the tool provides an extensive report that identifies the top 10 organic competitors along with their word count and backlink metrics, which is information that a simple Google search can’t provide!
Click on each competitor to examine their content and discover any information gaps. Evaluate their material for relevance, then deactivate rivals who aren’t providing any value worth noting.

Once you have an actionable plan in place for what needs to be written, it’s time to begin crafting the content. You can either do this yourself or delegate the task to a copywriter or other qualified members of your team. You can also use Content Editor to build SEO briefs, write optimized text, and evaluate content quality.
After completing the first draft, it’s time to move on to the next content creation stage—editing. This step can transform a good piece of content into a great one.
