5 Ways Gratitude Can Generate Interesting, Relevant Content

How to Reach Your Audience by Using Appreciation as a Theme
One of the most effective ways to reach your audience is to create content that resonates with them. This is also a strategy for inspiring them to return to your blog, website, and social media channels. You may feel that creating such material is much easier said than done, but it truly does not need to be a complex endeavour.  

If you have been searching for topics that might engage your readers, consider using gratitude as a theme. Since we recently celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada, we thought this would be the perfect time to introduce appreciation as a topic.

MintCopy is thankful to our customers, our team, and our business associates for their support over the past nine years. We couldn't have done it without your help!   

Gratitude as a Content Marketing Topic

You might employ thankfulness as a content theme in a variety of ways. In fact, using your platform as a means of expressing your appreciation could help you to generate many ideas for compelling SEO-friendly content.   

Consider these 5 strategies for providing gratitude-based content:      

  • Employees: Have you thanked your employees lately? Did you know that some of them may appreciate such recognition even more than a pay raise? You may want to thank them by way of your content writing, especially at this time of year. One way to do this would be to point out a job done particularly well. You might describe the ways that some of your employees consistently go above and beyond to accommodate your customers. You could also mention a specific occasion when an employee helped a customer. Did the customer send feedback about this incident? Make sure that you thank the employee for such a stellar performance on the job.  
  • Customers: Customer success stories are always worth sharing. Can you think of certain customers who have sent positive feedback, written glowing reviews about your business, or referred other customers to you? All of these circumstances may be included in your content. You could even interview an especially devoted customer and post the interview on your blog.
  • Peers: Perhaps your company partners with other businesses to help a local charity. Maybe you have collaborated on a business project with another company that might normally be a competitor. Take the time to describe such activities and to thank these other businesses for working with you.
  • Local Organizations: You can also express your thankfulness for local non-profit groups that serve your community. This is an ideal time of year to demonstrate your appreciation for a favourite group, and what better way to accomplish that than by giving them some free publicity via your content? Doing this might also draw local search traffic that would not otherwise visit your digital platform.
  • General Appreciation: Another option is to simply approach the topic of gratitude on a more general level, as we have done in this post. Discuss the importance of remembering what you are grateful for, and provide a few examples of people, businesses, and local organizations that have impressed you over the past year.

Content marketing can seem very complex, and sometimes, it is. Remember to simplify the process by including universal themes in your content, such as gratitude. Also, remember that you do not need to devise your material without assistance. You can hire professional content creators to help you reach your audience.

What You Need to Know

If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that Google is going to update its search algorithm. Some experts estimate that Google makes 500 to 600 updates annually, or once or twice each day. Most of these changes don’t have a significant impact on your SEO strategy, but every now and then, one comes along that can have serious repercussions. Learn more about two new features of Google search that help users verify and evaluate search results.

Google, one of the largest companies in the world, relies on artificial intelligence for hundreds of it projects. It can seem a little hypocritical for Google to tell businesses that they can’t use AI-generated content on their website. Back in 2010, Google’s John Mueller said that using automated translation tools to create content for your website “could be viewed as being against our Webmaster guidelines.” Here we are, over 10 years later, and Mueller just tweeted that “content generators have been around since the start of the web…Most sites…don’t need help creating low-quality content.” There’s a big discussion in the SEO industry about AI-generated content.

One of the toughest things about creating content is coming up with ideas. You can research keywords all day long, but if you can’t come up with topics around those keywords, your content may fall flat. If your in-house copywriter is struggling to keep up with a content calendar, you might be thinking about working with a content agency. Use these questions to prepare for a meeting with the project manager or as starting points to create your own content.

There just isn't a 'softer' way to say this; it's bad. Duplicate content, as defined by Google, “refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content in the same language or are appreciably similar.” Google highly recommends avoiding duplicate content. The key reason is that the ranking of the page on search engine results may suffer. This means, your audiences will not find your content, and when they do, they are unlikely to consider it useful. Understanding how Google handles duplicate content can help you elevate user experience and create a better content marketing plan.

If you just keep churning out content without reviewing what you’ve already done, you’re missing out on opportunities to make your content perform better. A content audit exercise involves systematically reviewing what you’ve published on your website and blog. As you adjust your content marketing plan to your business goals, this audit can help you find gaps in your content and see what’s been successful. When reviewing your content, look for these things that can negatively impact your content strategy.

Search has changed a lot over the years. Search results are displayed to be more efficient for users. Users search for information differently than they used to. There’s still a lot that search can’t do right now. Google aims to change the power of search again with their latest update, Multitask Unified Model, aka MUM. This new update will expand search capability to make search deliver more accurate and relevant information in seconds. Here’s what your content writers need to know about MUM.

Refine Your Content So it Resonates with Your Audience

Many websites churn out content as part of their online digital strategy without considering how their audience will respond to the content. Contextualizing content is a way of adding value to the reader. But what does it mean to put your content in context? It’s a way of approaching content that considers the why and when of your content, not just the person who is reading it. A person who needs a plumber to fix a leak needs different content than someone who is thinking about how to install a new toilet. The first customer needs access to a list of quick tips to prevent damage until a plumber can help while the second customer may want to read through a detailed outline of updating a bathroom for aging-in-place.
