Give them something useful and beneficial and they will stick around. 3. Content represents your brand. Content is usually the first thing your visitors will look at, aside from the design and layout. Your content reveals the tone, style and image of your brand. While some may neglect it, corporate or brand image through content is important to earn and retain loyal visits. Garnering a loyal following develops you brand’s reputation and at the same time reinforces your brand as an authority in its field. 4. Content provides support. If people want answers, they would typically use the internet to search online to get information. One of the purposes why your website exists is to provide assistance in case your customers need something. Good customer service can serve as a great way to create a lasting impression with your customers so providing good support is key. Content is part of support as it imparts knowledge needed by a person to complete their transaction. These questions should help you analyze the quality of your content.
