In the face of extensive information available online, professional health writers can succeed at content development and creation. To do this, an audience-targeted, content strategy is indispensable.
Without a strategy in place, content generation is bound to bring no benefits to you, the health writer.
For a quick start, assess and improve the effectiveness of your content development strategy with answers to the questions below.
Get clear on your Your Ideal Audience. Who will your services appeal to or who do you work best with?
Find out where your potential audience is concentrated and meet them where they are.
What do they need help with or what are their pain points. Wear the shoes to know where it pinches, step into the 'shoes'. of your potential clients.
Relevant information may be found on niche-specific platforms, where potential clients may be concentrated. Also, a quick mail, chat or a call could get you the answers you need.
Think about what can you do to meet the needs of your clients, and take action. You may need a course(s), self-help books, or some coaching related to the niche to know how and what to do.
A quick mail, chat or call could work here.
Promote your services on the channels where your ideal audience is concentrated. Develop content to educate your audience on how your services meet their needs.
Ensure the right balance between being too salesy and a natural lead-in to your services. Potential channels include Social Media, Posts, Forums, Websites, Articles, Facebook and Linkedin Groups.
If your clients have a great experience with you, expect a natural return path to your 'door'. If not acknowledge where you went wrong, and offer to correct the mistake. Also, apologize where necessary and offer a discount(s) for repeat services.
Your systems may be working for you. For others, some tweaks may be needed. Look through your project management system and relations with your clients. What worked and what did not work? Make adjustments and streamline your process, where necessary.
Create offers that lead naturally from your content to a potential client's need for your services. For example, you may have questions related to content development and monetization.
