Why This Content Works

1. It does exactly what it says on the tin

The article title is wholly prescriptive. Parents know exactly what they’ll find in the article before they click on the title to access it – recipes suitable both for them and their children.

2. Lists work

As humans, we love a list! Listing the number of items that will be on that list makes the article title even more attractive because we know that the number is finite and parents can gauge immediately how long it will take them to read the article if they find its subject appealing.

3. It has a broad appeal

As mentioned above, producing content that combines both kids and parents’ interests hits a special sweet spot that attracts parent readers. Ideas for the kids are all well and good but it’s also nice to have something to ourselves from time to time too! If you can kill two birds with one stone, all the merrier.

And how do parents feel about drinks content?

In our recent insights studies with parents, we asked them to tell us their thoughts on buying alcohol for the home.

One parent said “I prefer to buy in a supermarket or off-licence although I am looking forward to sitting in a restaurant or pub and having a nice beverage with a meal.”
