There are many components that come together to formulate a successful blog, and sometimes thinking about them all can make your head spin. We’ve written about most of them, and they include things like SEO, social media, copywriting, web design, guest writers, etc. There are too many to list. Although every component is important, it’s sometimes easy to forget about the most important thing of all, and that is content. Creating a content strategy is important for bloggers who want to increase their traffic.
Content strategy usually refers to the planning, development and management of your website or blog’s content. This infographic called Pick ‘n’ Mix For A Sweet Content Strategy by ContentPlus gives some great advice about how you can create an effect content strategy for your own blog or your company’s blog.
We create a lot of content here at Bit Rebels, but writing and publishing a minimum of six articles per day is only a small part of what we do here. Although Richard and I each write at least three blog posts per day, there are so many other behind-the-scenes things that we take care of that the content becomes just another thing on our long, daily to-do list. However, creating your content strategy and the content itself is most important thing on your to-do list. That is something we always try to remember. If our day suddenly goes haywire here at Bit Rebels, you can bet the content will still get published because that’s our priority.
I also wanted to direct you to three other articles that you might find helpful on this topic.
