The first thing you should consider in order to provide quality content is the need of your visitors or audience. If you have an expertise on a subject it would be very advantageous for you. You can provide information regarding a specific field and you can contribute to the web as an expert. Your visitors would appreciate the information on your website therefore your content could be considered as carrying high quality.
However, it is not obligatory to be an expert or to have a licence about a subject. You might find a subject where there is not much information on the web or you can think that the existing website about a topic or existing webpage telling something about a topic is not well enough. If you think that you can do it better or if you think that if a visitor comes to your website you can satisfy him/her better then go for it. Be the part of the web and be better than your competitiors.
Don’t forget, quality content means satisfied visitors. Always aim for this.
