NEW YORK, July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Keeping your brand relevant is an essential step in the small business ladder to success. One of the best ways to improve brand visibility and relevancy in today's digital age is by providing consumers with compelling content on your business website. Evergreen content gives businesses the option to recycle information that has already been shared, in order to save time and energy while generating website or business traffic.
Phillip Thune, CEO of Textbroker, has some helpful tips on how to create impressive evergreen content for your small business that will keep readers coming back for more. In his latest article posted to PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit, Thune offers five different types of evergreen content that will help your business and brand stay visible over time.
1. Instructions. Instructions or "how-to" guides can be the most valuable and reusable evergreen content available. Now more than ever audiences are using search engines to locate tutorials or directions that will help them solve problems quickly. For example, directions on how to make a pizza from scratch will remain the same and useful for many different readers. Consumers will need and want instructions in the future, which will drive new traffic to your platform along with readers returning for the information. Keeping relevant instructions up for your small business is an easy way to ensure that traffic keeps coming without having to add new content on a consistent basis.
2. Interviews. Interviews are also a great form of evergreen content because they are timeless and are quite simple to repurpose. Interviews from noteworthy professionals in your industry can easily be converted into fresh blog posts, marketing collateral, PowerPoint presentations or ebooks.
3. Answers. Readers want quick, simple and concise answers to their questions, and this is why content like FAQs and glossary pages are ideal for small businesses to have -- especially if your industry terms or company doesn't change too often. Answering commonly asked questions will continue to drive people who are actively seeking out that information back to your website.
