WordPress is huge – accounting for over an estimated 58% of all content-managed websites online at the moment… and into 2016 this figure continues to grow!

What many web developers don’t tell you, however, is that WordPress requires a lot of ongoing maintenance. As the biggest CMS it naturally becomes a target for hackers, but do you know if your site is safe and up-to-date?

We’ll be able to tell you very quickly if your site is likely secure and show you steps you may need to take to secure it further.

We’re also very experienced in developing and maintaining WordPress sites so we can also provide updates and maintenance if required. Get your free audit today

Content creation services from Seven Creative

We now have to cater for a generation of internet consumers who have an increasingly short attention span due to having been bombarded with mediocre content – they expect quick fixes and instant gratification. According to a recent study by AOP, the attention span of many of your site visitors is often as short as 8 seconds it’s getting shorter!

It’s therefore vital that you create and present fresh, concise, well written, and engaging content for your audience through all your communication channels including email marketing, your website, and social media to increase your ROI and avoid simply becoming part of the ‘noise.’

…but you’re busy running your business and simply don’t have the time to do it. Therefore, why not let us do it for you? Get in touch for a free content strategy review including a proposal for the ongoing creation of new, fresh content.

3 BIG Reasons to be Blogging for Business

Here at Seven Creative, we know that blogging is incredibly important, and why it needs to be an integral part of any marketing and SEO strategy.

sheffield-copy-writing-for-blogs

We also know that it takes up a lot of time and can be hard work, (which is why many business outsource their content writing) – but it really is worth it.

329 million people read blogs each month. With this huge potential readership, why miss out?

Here are 3 BIG reasons why your company should be blogging!

1.       Keep Up With the Competition

Do you want your business to lead or follow? The chances are, someone in your business will start blogging soon, if they aren’t already of course. And that will give them a massive advantage. Over time, they will begin to dominate the online space in your industry, pushing you further down the list.

Why allow your competitor to be a thought leader and authority in your industry when you could be?!

2.       Blogging Boosts SEO

Blogging produces impressive SEO results – FACT. As Sheffield SEO experts, we know that the more indexed pages you have, the better your Google rankings will be. And on average, blogging produces a massive 436% increase in the number of indexed pages.

Also, because of Google’s recent algorithm changes, quality content is more important than ever. And what is the best way of producing quality content that Google will love? Regular, original blog posts!

3.       Content is King

So, you know that good quality content boosts your SEO and social media marketing effectiveness. The truth is, high quality content is one of the best marketing values that money can buy.

According to Entrepreneur.com, 73% of people now prefer to get information about an organisation through articles, as opposed to traditional advertising. And this is possibly the most powerful statistic – 61% of people feel better about companies that deliver custom content and are more likely to buy from them. 

Seven Creative is a full service digital marketing agency providing Sheffield SEO, Sheffield website design and content writing in Sheffield. If you would like experienced blog writers and copywriters to produce high quality content for your blog, do not hesitate to get in touch on 0114 383 0711 or email contact@sevencreative.co.uk.

5 Top Tips on Writing for Web

Understanding how internet users read online text is half the battle of writing great web content.

The truth is, people don’t really web content word for word, the way you would a beautifully written novel for example.

They prefer to pick out key words and sentences to get an overall understanding of the content. This means that web copy needs to be scannable.

So, here are my 5 top tips for writing for the web!

copy-writing-for-web

1. Use Sub -headings

Sub-headings are a great way of breaking up the text into bite size chunks. They make it easy for readers to scan over the page, and digest the information without being swamped in text heavy web pages.

2. Highlight Keywords

Highlighting a keyword in bold or adding a hyperlink again makes the information easier to scan and digest. Readers are naturally drawn to the highlighted words and phrases, which should be integral to the understanding of the article.

3. One Idea per Paragraph

Keep paragraphs short, and as a rule, only include one key idea in each paragraph. Again, this will help readers to absorb the information easily and maintain the structure of your article. Generally, if readers are not captured by the first sentence, they will tend to skip the rest of the paragraph and move on to the next one.

4. Word Count

Opinions differ on the correct length of an online article or blog post. My personal preference is around 400 words, and never more than 600. This might not sound like a lot, but if you consider the attention span of readers and their preference for bite sized chunks of information, you can actually fit a fair few ideas into an article of this length. Which brings me my next point..

5. Use Bullet Points

Bulleted lists are easy to read, quick to scan, and can deliver a great deal of information in just a few lines. Perfect of web users!

If you have written a blog post or article, and need a hand editing or proofreading to make sure it’s perfect for the web, I can help. Whether you need content written from scratch, or you would like an expert to check through your grammar, punctuation and style, call Content Writer Extraordinaire on 0114 383 0711.

Content Writer – Copywriting for SEO

An SEO Content writer will produce website copy optimised for search engine indexing whilst still making sure it’s clear, engaging and natural to read

An SEO Content writer will produce website copy optimised for search engine indexing whilst still making sure it’s clear, engaging and natural to read

It’s no secret that in order to get your website to index to its potential, it will probably need a little help now and then. The problem is, though, that the majority of people who you ask for help in this department will probably end up with someone telling them that just they need inbound links… and lots of them!

Suddenly, however, for a lot of website owners it all went wrong! Google changed the way it evaluates websites and many people who had spent money on SEO saw their sites free falling out of the rankings overnight. The two things you need to know about Google are firstly, it’s not stupid and secondly, it doesn’t like to be manipulated.

Whilst it is partly true that inbound links are important, what these so-called experts don’t tell you is that, as with everything to do with SEO,  it’s all about quality – not quantity.

Good quality inbound links should only be part of your website SEO strategy.

Having a high number of poor quality inbound links was all-of-a-sudden one of the indicators Google used to see that the site owner was trying to manipulate the search results by making their site appear more important that Google would have assessed it as.

So what’s the SEO solution?

We’ve always said that content is king. If you focus on creating a high-quality website that people will enjoy and you’ll do well in the search results. Good quality, engaging content – and lots of it – will provide information and resources for your site visitors and Google will reflect this accordingly in the search results.

Copywriting for SEO is creating that text specifically crafted to make sure you clearly communicate to Google what your site is about. It will include your keywords and key-phrases at a natural density whilst still making sure the content is clear and engaging.

A good SEO copywriter or SEO content writer will produce clear, legible and engaging text that will be feel natural to read but still include the correct density of your keywords and key-phrases

…and the best thing is, it’s all perfectly above board according to all the major search engines! This is a win-win situation as your site visitors will be presented with well-written copy and the search engines will be able to figure out clearly what your site is about.

What is a good content writer?

A good content writer is someone who is able to produce clear, natural feeling content that is easy to read and engaging whilst still making sure that the content is optimised for search engines.

Content writers know that SEO is a very important consideration for nearly all sites these days whilst remembering that ultimately it will be humans who read this text.

Copywriting for SEO refers to content specially created to help your website index within search engines by clearly communicating what the subject of page is. if this is done correctly, your visitors will engage with you and Google will index you.
