Content Guidelines – What makes good content?
- Well-researched and informative articles. Nobody wants to read something that they’ve already read elsewhere!
- Give practical information and actionable steps.
- Include addresses, prices and other useful information.
- Either evergreen content (content that readers will find useful at any time of the year) or current viral news!
- A “smarter way“ angle on popular topics.
- Can you help the reader make a better decision? Do you have any tips to share on how to save money or time on anything?
- Well-structured, easy to read and visually attractive.
- Less verbose and more “to the point”: use bullet points and tables
- Good grammar and simple English for clearer and shorter sentences
- Beautiful, relevant and high-resolution images
- An appropriate length. 600-1000 words work best!
