11 Ways to Structure Content

#1 – Never discount old school SEO

Headings still matter and are also more aesthetically pleasing

Apply correct heading tags for your titles, headings, and sub-headings. Check out Yoast’s post on blog heading structure.

2. Use inline media

Give your content more substance and context with the use of images, videos, and other interactive mediums

3. Create lists

Content is more consumable in bite-sized chunks.

4. Link to your references

Relevant outbound links are also important in SEO…

Plus, it removes the search process for readers who want to know more

5. Landing page structure: Introduction

List a problem. What frustrates your audience?

6. Landing page structure: Body

Aggravate the problem and make it relatable.

7. Landing page structure: Solution

Provide a valuable solution to the problem that invokes a sense of relief.

8. Landing Page Structure: Trust

Show proof that your solution works and that shows you’re good at what you do. For example: Statistics, testimonials, and quotes.

9. Landing Page Structure: Call to Action

End with a call to action to encourage your customer to take the next step

10. Think about site design

Heavy content doesn’t look appealing in one block…

…so use website design to make content more digestible

…and finally…

11. Highlight key words (not “keywords”)

It helps users identify the relevancy of your posts in one scan.
