How to create content with WordPress that people really want to engage with - WP Builds WordPress Podcast

Creating content on your WordPress website that attracts people can be hard if you don’t have a plan. Miles Beckler has a system to create content that people want to read. It’s a simple system too. It might be something that you’ve implemented in the past, but it might be completely new to you. The approach is about creating content that you know that people are searching for, and for that you need a keyword tool (see the show notes).From there you write content that you are certain that people are actually going to want to read.

The beauty of this being held within WordPress is that it’s going to be around for years to come and you can alter it should your data show that’s it’s in need of a tweak. You’re not going to get rich over night, and that’s not the point, but if you’re willing to engage with Miles’ process, you might find a new and interesting way to get paid. Fun listen…

It’s a something that I’ve struggled with for a long time. I’m lucky in that I have enough work (right now) to keep me going and it comes my way largely through word of mouth. Because I’m a study in mediocrity, this is fine by me; I have not needed to market too much to keep my head above the water. But I’m hoping that you’re not as satisfied with mediocre, as I am – you’re a get-up-and-got type aren’t you? You want more out of life than I do? Well guess what, you’re going to have to market yourself in order to get, because you can be sure that competitors will.
