What is Actionable Content?

Actionable content is content that can be easily implemented and acted upon by readers. Whether it’s blog posts, articles, or other content marketing materials, this type of content is typically informative, relevant, entertaining, and unique. So, what makes content “actionable”? Here are six common elements of actionable content:
  • It shows readers how to complete a process step-by-step.
  • It targets your specific reader/intended audience.
  • It provides value.
  • It establishes trust.
  • It addresses the reader’s needs or problems.
  • Rather than simply telling a reader what to do, it shows the reader how to achieve something.
