In today’s post I will show you how to create posts in WordPress. It is very simple, and to add a new one it should take you less than 30 minutes.
Since most of you are pretty knew to having your own website, I will try to explain it as simple as I can. However, in case that you will still have a question, share it with me in the comment section at the end of the post!
First thing you have to do is for you to hover your mouse on the top menu on the “+New” button. Once there, click on Post.
Your second alternative is to hove your on the left side menu on the “Posts” button and select Add New.
There are 3 main components that you have to take into consideration when you are creating a new post.
- Post Idea
Here, you have to take some time aside and come up with a new idea for your new post. Spend around 10 minutes brainstorming for new content ideas. In case that you aren’t able to came up with any idea at all, a good alternative is to spy on your competition. See how their content is divided. See the core structure of their website and check out for their latest posts.
A more simpler alternative is to present to your friends your website topic and to ask them what they would like to know about that specific topic. However, if you don’t want to involve your friends and acquaintances in your business, then the best solution for you is to go on Facebook and on the search bar to enter your website’s topic. Join on Facebook groups and ask people there what they would like to know. Or you can easily check the posts and create some yourself.
In the case that you want to grow your audience on your website, I will suggest you to check your ideas on a keyword tool. A keyword tool is what professional content writers use in order to find out what ideas will attract more customers. You can find more about the keywords and the keyword tool here.
I personally use the Wealthy Affiliate keyword tool. It has 30 free searches for free membership and if you decide to upgrade to a premium Wealthy Affiliate membership, you will have access to an unlimited number of searches. You can see what other opportunities does Wealthy Affiliate have here.
If you don’t want to join Wealthy Affiliate, then you can use the Jaaxy Keyword tool. It also offers you 30 free searches.
2. Helpful content.
Unfortunately, having the best keyword it won’t bring you success. You need to create Quality Content too. For instance, if one of your keywords is about how to solve an issue, you should also write in your post what is causing it and offer more than 2 alternative to solve it.
This means that you need to stick with the topic you chose. If you selected a good keyword, that brings you 100 searches a day, it won’t help you very much. You have to offer quality content for your audience to stick around your website.
3. Feedback and other questions.
Another important aspect that you have to take into consideration is that to ask your audience if they have any questions at the bottom of the post. It is very important to ask for feedback too, since they will tell you their honest opinion of what you could have done better.
Once you finished writing your post, go to the top-right menu and hit on the blue “Publish” button.
That’s it! You’re done!
