How Does Information Work?
Many are concerned with pumping bits and pieces of content, but only a few actually understand how information works. It is not just about the mere transfer of information from one place to another. There is a process from ideation to delivery that is more complex than you think. If it were easy, everyone would do it effectively.
Every bit of content that is published takes on a different role as interpreted by the audience unless the information is presented in an uncompromising manner. In the creation of any piece of content, these are important things to consider. Before you create content, you should have a working knowledge of how an audience digests information.
Firstly, our knowledge of this comes from our own experiences when consuming. We know what we would like to consume, but the way we interpret content is different from others. Since we are, in part, a reflection of our peers (we adopt some characteristics of our peers) the content we create will find its most suitable audience in our own social group. Expanding or constricting that social group will have an effect on the numbers that have access to our content.
Careful consideration of the abstract and concrete elements we choose is imperative for the general construct of published content. Abstract elements would be things like peace, love, and success. For each individual, there is a different meaning attached to those concepts. Unless defined specifically in the piece you create, these ideas are left completely up to the audience for interpretation. Where you need to apply a standard meaning to something, use concrete elements. These are not raw concepts, but factual or qualitative, or otherwise definite terms.
This is a simple concept to understand, but a difficult one to implement. The only way to improve is to produce content constantly. Unless your intention is to confuse, you should produce work that is concise and vivid. The combination of these two elements will present both a literal meaning for the audience to dissect and context that the audience must make intelligible to themselves. These two parts of content are crucial to its general construct. Without them, content is unfinished.
The delivery of your content can refer to the manner in which the message is handled and the medium that is used to host your content.
