Content Marketing Blog

Welcome to our blog.

We hate to admit it, but our team of experienced, trained and highly creative copywriters is often stumped with the same big question mark you are so familiar with - "What do I write next?" An even bigger challenge we face is that this question raises its head for us every day, many times a day. So what's the solution? Simply put, we counter that question with more questions...and answers...Who are we writing for? Why are we writing this piece? When and for how long will it be relevant? Where do we want this to be found? We also research and stay on top of the latest trends and best practices in content marketing for various industries, bringing this knowledge to our writing. You can learn and benefit from all that we do by just reading and sharing everything we post here on our blog. Your feedback is welcome.

Beyond Today: Keeping Your Content Relevant for More than the Moment

Sheetal Pinto - Thursday, January 12, 2017

Ensure Your Marketing Content has Longevity
Happy New Year!
There is an unmistakable drive in content marketing across creative industries and departments, to remain fresh and current. The problem with applying every trend that takes off is that your marketing content can quickly become disorienting for your audience. Plus, it can rapidly turn from on-trend to outdated or passé, contributing to a negative impression of your brand.

The team at Convince and Convert discussed why moving beyond today is crucial for keeping your content fresh and relevant for longer periods.

Here are 3 tips they covered to keep your digital content fresh without sacrificing its shelf-life:

  1. It’s Not About You – Recognize that your audience wants to hear about themselves – not you. While your content will support and contribute to an overall brand, it shouldn’t focus heavily on your product or services. Instead, make your customer the hero at the centre of the story you are telling.
  2. Stop Proving and Start Improving – How will your content lead to benefits, efficiencies, or an overall improvement for your audience? Make it clear, actionable, and useful. Highlight their control and provide information that tells them how, not what.
  3. Be Smart, Be Human – Be timely and thematic with your content, but avoid hopping on trends that can hurt your reputation and credibility. No matter what industry your company operates in or how quickly trends cycle, new advances should be handled with consideration. Instead of focusing on what’s new and why it’s great, take the angle of smart uses and the very real human actions and repercussions of these changes. Be specific and clear, putting your audience in the narrative about what is new.
