Let Your Visitors Write the Content - Get Them Involved
(Page 3 of 4 )
If you’re offering comments, forums and other content-generating features on your site, you’re off to a good start when it comes to user-created content. Now, why not start to amp it up a little bit? Get them involved, and give them plenty of reasons to contribute lots of content to your pages.
Want to enjoy a lot more user-created content? The first step is to make it possible. Provide a link and an online form which allows users to submit their own blog posts and articles if they like. Tell them to sound off on any topic, or give them a list of topics to choose from.
Make sure the links to this content-creation section are clearly displayed on the site, and make sure the form is incredibly easy to use. Internet traffic doesn’t want to waste time trying to navigate your page or figure out a feature, so make it as straightforward and easy to use as possible.
You might be surprised at how willing your traffic is when you simply give them the opportunity to contribute. Offer to let them write the blogs and the articles, and they will. Give them topics to choose from, and they’ll run with it. Many Internet users are just looking for a platform. Give them one, and your site could benefit a great deal from your open-door content-creation policy.
