What are the 7 types of content that drive most engagement?

The common imperative for all engaging content is the ability to catch and hold viewers’ attention. How you do that is up to you, but to make it simpler we have for you the 7 major kinds of content that keep audiences engrossed.

1. Content written for Me by You

Write for your readers.
 Write your posts in the most human way possible. Ideally, your words should pull readers into the post, and you can do that only by directly addressing them and the questions they are likely to have through your writing. Preferably write in first person, avoid jazz, and don’t put effort into sounding more complicated and distant.

Write as you.

Don’t be afraid to add a dash of your personality into your content. Be authentic. In fact, it is vital for your audience to be able to discern you from the noise and personality is the way to do it.
A good example of interactive writing is this blog written by social media marketing expert Kerry Butters. The first line you read draws you into a story, and she speaks directly to you in a warm tone.

2. Keep your tone of writing warm
3. Be authentic

2. Content that inspires emotion
