5 Must Haves When Creating Converting Content

Aug 6, 2022
Read Time: 3 mins

In today’s issue, I’ll be sharing 5 things you can mention to create content that converts.

That’s how I went from attracting $150 clients to $4000 clients.

Don’t get me wrong, this didn’t happen overnight (or even a month).

During the 2nd half of 2020, I created content that got over 300 likes, but didn’t get a single high ticket client.

So, what changed?

I started using my market research insights in my content and messaging.

Now, I want to share the 5 things I make sure to communicate whenever I create content.

1. Their current situation

Want to get your ideal client’s attention? Paint a picture of where they’re at now. Mention and expand on their challenges.

Do this by highlighting the challenges, pain points, frustrations they mentioned in your market research

Here’s an example of how I do it:

Challenge: Creating content consistently

Pain Points:

  • They’re not sure if their content is effective

  • They don’t know if their audience understands them

  • Their message is jumbled up in their head

  • They don’t know if their audience is actually interested in their content

These were all answers my ideal clients mentioned during my market research interviews. I literally took their words and pasted it across my content.

2. Their goals

Just mentioning their challenges won’t convert your audience. You need to show them the transformation you can give them.

Do this by highlighting the goal and desires they mentioned in your market research.

Here are a few examples:

These touched on the goals of:

  • Increasing reach

  • Converting their audience

  • Increasing rates and signing premium clients

Market Research Questions to ask:

  • What are your big business goals for the next 6 months?

3. Their objections/myths around my services

Let’s face it, many business owners have a limited understanding around branding. They sometimes think it’s marketing!

So why not counter their myths and objections before they even reach out to you?

Here’s an example:

This one really helped convert a client after 3 months 😂

That’s because it helped debunk her belief that branding is:

  • An easy process that can be done by anyone

  • All visuals and design

Market Research Questions to ask:

  • In your own words, how would you describe branding?

  • If I were to offer my services to you now, what objections would come to mind?

4. The stakes

What would they lose if they didn’t work with you? What would happen if they didn’t try to solve their problems?

More often than not, this is the type of pain that moves people to action. There is no greater frustration than staying stuck with the problems they have.

Think about…

  • The challenges and frustrations they mentioned

  • What’s keeping them from their goals

  • What would happen if they weren’t able to achieve their goals

  • The problems they’re trying to solve right now

Here's an example of how I did this:

This touches on a very common problem most of my clients go through: Being unable to accurately communicate the quality of their business to their audience, which ends up creating the wrong impression around their brand.

5. Quick Win/Expertise

You know their challenges and their goals, so now what? You need to earn their trust through authority and expertise.

You can do this by letting them experience a small win or a taste of your services.

I personally like to do this by leaving my audience with action steps.

This does 2 things:

  1. They’re able to experience a small transformation from your content

  2. You’re able to share your knowledge and expertise in your niche

When they see results from your content, they’ll be more inclined to work with you.

I do this on almost all of my posts.

And that’s it!

These are the 5 things I try to communicate the most when creating content. In the long run, it helps nurture my audience until they’re finally ready to buy.


  1. Their current situation

  2. Their goals

  3. Their objections/myths around my services
