Content distribution can be a very effective way to reach out to your readers without sitting back and waiting for them to discover your article or your website on their own.
Free, interesting, applicable and cup-to-date web content is what most people online are searching for. So you must offer it to your targeted readers, to let them know that you’ve created something that can help address their needs and challenges.
You have to take proactive steps if you want to enhance and maximize the online popularity and visibility of your web content writing. What you publish online might contain great insight and valuable information – created by you at a cost, whether financial or in opportunity costs -, but if you do nothing to expose them, it will be buried in the sea of information. And it won’t be able to deliver what you truly want, more web traffic.
Here are some of the ways to generate traffic through content distribution:
1. Know what your target audience wants.
Knowing what your potential clients want is an effective way of doing what can serve them best. It can help you to formulate the best topics to discuss about.

Attracting a new set of readers to your articles or other web content isn’t always an easy task.
Of course, you’re always looking to grow the size of your audience, but it can be tricky hard to pinpoint exactly what makes one article more interesting/exciting/entertaining than the next one.
Increasing the reach of your article writing requires a balance of focus on not only the quality of your content, but also your ability to promote articles after publication. And every step in the process is important, but today’s focus is on the first basic requirement – writing good content. Here are five steps you can use to create a good article:
1. Tell a Story – Create a central theme or hook for each of your articles. Craft a story that your audience can relate or connect to versus just plainly stating facts with little narrative. How you choose to present information to your audience can make a big difference. A well-written story will attract and influence more readers.
2. Speak to One Person – Write your article as if you are communicating directly to a single reader. Try to use “you” instead of “they”, “he”, “she”, etc. This creates a perception with the reader More >
Building upon our last post, I wanted to further expand the conversation re: the future of web content and the trends that will get us there.
I recently read that there will be 30 Billion smart devices in the year 2030. Yes, Billion with a “B”. This is a staggering number, which equates to an average of 7 devices per person. By then we will be living in what I (and others) have called the Age of Ubiquitous Internet – a time when individuals are constantly “plugged in” to the web via one device or another, no matter the situation, usually via multiple ones.
In fact, this is already becoming a reality for many. With iPads and other tablet computers, smart phones, Internet TV and gaming systems, and of course home computers and laptops, etc. there are lots of individuals who spend the vast majority of their day online. Ubiquitous Internet takes it one step further. Imagine an entire platform devices interconnected, all with access to the same data. At this stage, all data will be available to you in the “cloud”, making for seamless transition between one device and another. The cloud makes this all possible, since you don’t need much More >
