When people are searching online for information they are generally looking for the same things that a search engine looks for. These people perform the search and then evaluate the website page to see if the information is authentic and of use to them. It therefore follows that if you always seek to provide high value information to your audience, you’ll be a lot more likely to not only attract your target customers to your website, but also to keep them there.
Here are some great ways you can provide that high value that people are looking for.
Develop White Papers
A white paper is an authoritative paper that either persuades a consumer toward a particular product using facts, or describes problems and offers multiple solutions to the consumer. You can provide white papers on a variety of topics for your audience that will be seen as high value to your audience, whether they’re free or not.
A great way to provide high value to your audience is to make videos for them. You can create “how to” videos, explainer videos, and other types of demonstration videos, or even just informational videos about topics that your audience cares about. Make them short, no more than three to five minutes. The value will be perceived as very high when it’s information they want.
Another way to provide high value to visitors is to offer eBooks about the topics they care about. In this way that they can read the information on their Kindle or other reading device away from the website.
Form an Inner Circle
One really great way to provide a super high value to your audience is to create a members only area, paid or free, where people have to be approved to join. You can now do this via Facebook private and secret groups. People like feeling exclusive, and this is a good way to do it.
Host Monthly Webinars
Offer periodic webinars or teleseminars for your website visitors. If you offer them monthly, based on various topics of importance to your audience, you’ll up your authority quotient with your audience exponentially.
Conduct Case Studies
Once you’ve been around long enough, you likely have some success stories that can be shared. Collect case studies about people who have used methods you describe. You can even collect studies about people who have succeeded using methods like yours. This will make the audience feel like they’re truly getting a lot of value out of the information provided.
Your audience will absolutely love it if you interview movers and shakers within your niche. What’s more, the more you interview experts, the more people will view you as an expert. That’s how Oprah became the guru we now know today. Not only has she learned from those she’s interviewed, but her audience sees her as an expert in a variety of fields.
Most bloggers in my opinion don’t really understand the real power in providing value to their visitors, so they miss out and all of the benefits associated with blogging. You however now know that providing high value through the various types of content you offer can increase your website traffic and even improve traffic loyalty and help increase sales.
