When there is so much pressure to “create content” for your business, it’s easy to fall into the trap of writing crap content.
Nick Gulic shared this awesome post from CXL (a very good conversion-focused blog)
Which is just a fancy name for Stop Writing Crap Content And What To Write Instead
I think my title is better.
There is a really good summary in the post.
It says that you content should change at least one of three things:

The way someone does something.
The way someone thinks about something.
The way someone feels about something.
-Derek Gleason Source

The post argues that ‘should’ content is prolific because it’s easy, and thus cheap if you’re outsourcing it.
‘How’ content is more difficult, but will get you better results.
I plan on asking myself the three questions above for each piece we produce from now on.
