But how do you ensure the knowledge is actually going to be usable? Always keep your audience in mind when you are writing the article. Put yourself in their shoes – would it make sense to them? Will they understand the language you are using?

1. Identify your audience.
2. Use templates.
3. Highlight the important information.
4. Use graphics.
A picture paints a thousand words – use screen grabs or images as aids to describing steps or illustrating the answers. Research has shown that we remember visual images much better than words
5. Make it repeatable.
The more repeatable your method is, the more likely people will contribute content, because formatting decisions are pre-loaded. To ensure your content is being written in a consistent and effective way, why not download the ebook and share it with all those who are responsible for creating content?
