Quality Content Creation Creation Creation

WORDS ARE THE IDEAS 

Just about everything you confront and interact within life has a story to tell. A story starts with content. Content then is the subject or ideas contained in something written, said, created, or represented. Content is also the things expressed or suggested in something written or produced as visual representations or the content of the idea communicates. And content starts with the written word that drives everything. Words are the ideas contained almost anywhere you go and anywhere you need to understand and share your ideas. All content starts first with a good idea. The best-selling author and longtime New Yorker staff writer, Malcolm Gladwell, perhaps said it best, “It is not the job of the writer to apply the ideas, but to find the ideas.” He went on to say that one of his goals as an author is “to get people to take human psychology seriously and to respect the complexity of human behavior and motivations.”

DECIDING WHERE TO START 

Creating quality content for the world your brand lives in is one of the most complex types of world-building. Multiple platforms where a content writer conjures up ideas that layout details for the world. Understandably, the thought of creating all these elements to form an entire branded content for your marketplace world can be very daunting. We live in a globalized society, making it almost impossible to know, with any certainty, how your branded content will resonate once you breathe life into it. Deciding where to start can seem practically impossible to know, even to determine if it is a good idea or not. According to a study by Clear Voice, Sixty-two percent of marketers are challenged by a lack of time to create content, and finding talented people was three times more challenging.”

“No matter how grand or how epic,

most stories are sparked from a single idea.”

“If at first, the idea is not absurd,

then there is no hope for it.”         

– Albert Einstein

Your idea must be targeted to an audience that you are most interested in communicating with. These are also the same people most likely to socialize your content. If you try to appeal your content to everyone, you end up appealing to no one. The tinier and more specific the target audience, the simpler it is to create focused communication that will move your reader and viewer of content to action. “The medium is the message” was instituted by Marshall McLuhan, a Canadian communication theorist, in his book The Extensions of Man. McLuhan theorizes that a communication medium itself, not the messages it carries, should be the primary focus of study. He showed that artifacts as media affect any society by their characteristics or content. So, for McLuhan, it was the medium itself that shaped and controlled “the scale and form of human association and action,” which invariably leads to quality content creation. 

The Four Components to Your Quality Content

Information Dissemination  

Content can be persuasive, fascinating, informative, engaging, entertaining, or any combination of the five. 

The Contextual Purpose

The reader, viewer or user, is the target of opportunity to convey and establish the purpose of communication and interactions. When done well, it takes them to the next step. 

The Medium for the Message 

The medium can be become or be the message. The channel communicates the message and influences the message

Form of the Communication Medium 

The curated content can be made up of words, graphics, images, video, audio, or any combination. 

It is imperative that four components be considered together for quality content to have value and significance. It has been said, ‘Information without context is just noise.’ If the information is not presented in its appropriate form, or equally important, via the suitable medium, there is an excellent possibility that it will never resonate and not reach or even touch your intended audience. In combination with curating content for the medium, the message becomes vitally important. It is a lot like writing a technical manual on assembling a lawnmower without pictures or, worse yet, no diagrams. And yes. Adding a filmed presentation would even be better!

“A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that he writes will ask himself at least four questions, thus:  

What am I trying to say? What words will express it? What image or idiom will make it clearer?  

Is this image fresh enough to have an effect?” 

George Orwell

“Quality content means content that is packed with clear utility and is brimming with inspiration, and it has relentless empathy for the audience.”

–  Ann Handley 

The hastening of content through digital platforms has been exponential during this tumultuous and unprecedented time. In a recent study, Forbes discovered that internet use had gone up 70% and streaming more than 12% with the onset of the pandemic. Streamlined communication has found its new standard, which would be unheard of just a few short years ago.
