Writing your web content is not an easy process. Most know that, in order for people to find their website in a Google search, their content needs to be written with search engine optimization in mind. However, it needs to be written with the audience in mind too. Your content needs to captivate your audience when they arrive on your website as well as keep them there as long as possible.
It needs to engage your audience within the first 5–15 seconds after landing on your website to avoid them leaving before finding out what you offer and how you can help solve their problem. To do that, your content needs to grab their attention immediately, pique their interest and create a desire for what you have to offer.
When planning your website, you defined your website’s goals and now have a clear understanding of what your target audience needs. This knowledge will help you a great deal in deciding what information you should include in your web content.
