Why This Content Works

1. Using “Easy” and “Simpler” in the Title

The words “Easy” and “Simpler” in the title indicate to parents immediately that this content is going to offer them solutions that are not difficult and will help to improve the process of their morning routine with their kids, thus saving time and energy.

2. It’s timeless but also seasonal

Parents will always need solutions to keep their kids’ hair neat and tidy for school, making this article appropriate for any time of year. However, it’s also seasonal, as ‘back to school’ time is usually a time of new beginnings, meaning parents are more inclined to seek out new solutions for old problems.

3. Lists Work

Readers like finite lists, as they offer a range to different solutions and help them to know there’s an end to the content and what to expect.

And how do parents feel about ‘back to school’ spending?

In a recent insights study, we asked parents to tell us their thoughts on ‘back to school’ spending; what is important to them and what they will be spending on for the upcoming school year.

One parent said “I usually do my back to school shopping early to budget. Items like runners, shoes, clothes come last so they will get the wear from them.”
