What is content writing?
Content writing is the process of drafting, writing, editing and publishing, specifically curated content for your brand and your business. Appealing content helps your brand compete online by reaching your target audience and performing better on search engine results.
There is a wealth of information available to audiences online, and it is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to stand out. At ProfileTree, we can help your business gain that competitive edge, by using SEO practices and creating content that appeals to those Google algorithms.

What is SEO content writing?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, this is the process of creating content that appeals to search engine algorithms like Google.
When someone searches for something on Google, they are unlikely to go to page 15 for an answer to their query. SEO attempts to bump your website’s content further up on search results pages, so more audiences will visit it.
SEO tactics increase traffic to your website, which in turn leads to more sales and profits. It also helps increase your businesses online credibility, reputation and brand recognition. SEO is not a perfect science and content writers have to consistently ensure that they are on top of the latest search engine trends and algorithms.
At ProfileTree, all of our content is created with SEO practises embedded. We know how to make content that is capable of performing on search engine results, and we use that expertise to help our clients compete online.
Five reasons why content writing is so important
So now you know what content writing is, but why does your business need it and why is it so important? Here are five reasons why you should be using content to grow and promote your business online.
- Content writing helps your business compete online
- Content writing helps your business stand out from competition.
- Content writing helps your business engage with audiences meaningfully
- Content writing helps support organic growth.
- Content writing helps show off your industry expertise.
1. Content writing helps your business compete online
As of April 2022, there were 5 billion internet users globally. The internet has changed how we live and interact with one another, and if businesses are to remain healthy, then they too need to start competing online and engaging with the digital market.
But how do you compete online? The answer is with content, but not just any kind of content, it must be appealing, embedded with SEO practices, and useful for your target audience.
Give your business a fighting chance for competing within the digital market, with content that has been well researched, expertly constructed and embedded with SEO practices. Content should be worth posting online as it is representative of your brand.
2. Content writing helps your business stand out from competition.
Your company might be the best in the business, but if you aren’t being seen online and outshadowed by competitors, then it’s detrimental to the success and potential growth of your business.
There is a myriad of content available online and it is very likely that some of your competitors have been disseminating that information. In order to compete with them, you need to be providing audiences with better content that’s more useful, entertaining and appealing.
At ProfileTree, we can help your business stand out from competitors by creating content that is embedded with SEO, is relevant for your audiences and highlights your business’s USP (unique selling point).
3. Content writing helps your business engage with audiences meaningfully
To put it bluntly, your target audience isn’t altruistically interested in your brand, so you need to create content that will engage with them on a personal level. Your content should not just inform audiences about your business, it should provide them with resources that answers their questions, assists in their daily life or provides them with useful information.
For example, your business might sell top of the range drills and other DIY products, and whilst it is worthwhile to create materials that explains the product’s features, it may be more constructive to write an article on “the best ways to hang a picture”. Audiences are more likely to search for “how to hang a picture” as opposed to “how to use the DeWalt GB 18v drill”. Content writing is a subtle way of introducing your business and promoting your brand.
4. Content writing helps support organic growth.
Content writing helps to support your businesses organic growth. This means that instead of using paid advertising to promote your business, content is instead used to increase traffic to your website or social media account.
If your business is consistently providing audiences with useful content, audiences will visit your site because it is a resource for information. Content writing helps develop your brand’s reputation without the use of paid advertising, visitors land at your website due to your valuable content.
Content writing is a major tool used for encouraging organic growth. It may not provide immediate sales for your business, but it does lead to returning visitors who value your business and become loyal customers.
5. Content writing helps show off your industry expertise
Another major advantage of content writing is that it provides your business with an opportunity to show off industry expertise. If you can provide content that highlights your knowledge and capability, which in turn increases your brand’s reputation and credibility.
An example of this is the laundry detergent company – Ariel. They provide useful content such as articles on how to remove tough stains from clothing. This content highlights their industry expertise and simultaneously increases the audiences trust with their laundry detergent products.
