Writing INTERESTING Content for BORING Industries

Compel Your Readers to Stay on the Page
We have discussed it here previously, and it is an issue that will always require attention for some businesses: How do you create thought-provoking content if you work in an industry that is “boring?” Whether you run an HVAC company, an insurance agency, or an accounting firm, you truly can devise copy that compels readers to visit your site repeatedly. 

How to Build Blog Posts and Other Material that Your Audience Will Love 

Before you begin to craft content for your blog or other web pages, keep these details in mind:

  • There for a Reason: If your visitors were not interested in your business, they would not likely have landed on your website. Readers are there for a reason: to learn more about topics that pertain to your industry.
  • Tell a Story: No subject is tedious unless it is presented as such. Remember to tell a story when you are constructing a blog post, web page, newsletter, or press release. As a leading digital marketing influencer points out, if you can describe a story from “real life,” the material should take on a tone of authenticity that resonates with your readers.
  • Readability: Do not underestimate the importance of presentation. The format in which your copy is displayed can have a significant effect on whether people stay on the page. Instead of composing long, unwieldy sentences in big blocks of text, break it up a bit. By utilizing content writing tools such as section headers, lists, and bullet points, you can make your web writing more readable.      

Topics that Appeal to Your Visitors

Before you can hold the attention of your readers with your copywriting skills, you must first arouse their curiosity with topics and titles. Instead of offering predictable copy about common industry subjects, approach each post from a unique angle. Consider the following examples of article topics/titles for “boring” businesses:     

  • (HVAC Company) How to Save Hundreds of Dollars on Your Heating and Cooling Bills
  • (Insurance Agency) – 10 Insider Secrets About Car Insurance
  • (Accounting Firm) – Accounting Tips and Tricks You Cannot Live Without
  • (Software Business) – Software that Will Change Your Life
  • (File Storage Platform) – How the Cloud Can Transform the Way You Do Business

We know that copywriting for your business can seem boring, especially if your industry is not a particularly exciting one. However, you can create intriguing content if you allow your creativity to flow.    

We know that not everyone has the time or skill set to devise copy that captivates. MintCopy offers a team of content writers who can perform this task for you. Call us at 1-888-646-8003, or email us for more information. Also, please feel free to use our online contact form.

Do you own a small business? Does any part of your profit margin depend on local sales? If the answer to either of those was “yes,” then you need to consider optimizing your website for local search results. Local SEO content uses localized keywords, landmarks, and location specific language to make your business more visible to people living in a close physical proximity. This creates a local link that results in more on-site sales, and that’s always a good thing, right?

Content marketing has undergone a serious transformation since the concept was first introduced to the digital marketplace. Now, we know that the majority of successful marketers focus on using online content to add value rather than pushing sales. This is increasingly important in B2B marketing that targets professionals and industry insiders.

It’s true, bad grapes make poor wine; BUT good vintners only use the very best grapes. The same concept applies to your web content. The quality of copywriting is directly affected by the quality of the brief that directs the content. When savvy content marketers provide a brief, they are trying to figure out the best strategy for their writers. They are finding the best grapes to make the best possible wine.

No one wants to spend hours designing and writing content that’s rejected. Content writing or copywriting and digital marketing are all based on strategy and value. When copywriters don’t receive enough information about a company’s goals, audience, and purpose, they are left trying to fill in the blanks. This leaves both the client and the writer frustrated and losing time and money.

Your Audience will Enjoy the Break and Share Your Content Readily

Unless you’re blessed with insanely linear organizational skills, you understand how boring anything formal or stiffly written can be. Reading through educational materials isn’t exactly fun for many. That is, until you come across someone who knows how to write for their audience instead of just their topic.

Press releases are one of the very first connections you’ll make to your audience. They need to be an action-packed compilation of information that matters to the people who will read it.
