6 Types Of Evergreen Content

evergreen content

Do you know what evergreen content is? Have you ever read a book…more than once? Not every book is one that you’d want to read again and again but there are those special books that are that irresistible. Those are the books with those illuminating characters, magical places and intriguing plots. You just can’t help getting hooked.

Evergreen Content

If you read a book like that today, you could still pick it up and read it again five years from today or even ten years from today and it would never be old. I can give you a great example, The Far Pavilions. Best book I ever read and I read it twice. It’s timeless! That’s an example of evergreen content.

So What Is Evergreen Content Anyway?

evergreen content ideasSo what exactly is evergreen content? If you’re not familiar with the term, just think about an evergreen tree.  An evergreen tree stays green, keeping its leaves year round. As a marketer establishing and maintaining your position of leadership in the marketplace, you want to produce content that will never die.

This means content that will be relevant and applicable regardless of when it is read. One of the most important factors of evergreen content is that it is quality content. And though most content you may read is quality, evergreen content is sustainable and long-lasting. It offers value to everyone who reads it whether today, next month or next year and as long as it can be linked to and can continue to generate traffic, it’s evergreen.

If you were to look at a graph that displayed the results of a newly written and shared blog post, you might see a spike in traffic but just as quickly as traffic spikes, it declines.  While this is not a bad thing in and of itself, you want to write content that spikes traffic, then shows a steady growth, engagement and links over time. This is what happens when you post evergreen content.

For example, changes occurring in social media which happen all the time. If you were to write about one such change, it may be very relevant at that particular time but when the next change comes, that content will be obsolete. Whether or not the content will be relevant for a long period time or not, we need all kinds of content because content informs, educates and explains. So it is just as important to write about topics that will be short-lived as it is to write about topics that will stand the test of time.
