Auditing Our Content Marketing Strategy

Examining the Results of an Internal MintCopy Case Study
In order to successfully market your brand, you must continuously examine your content marketing strategy. Practices that worked well for you a year ago might need to be modified or replaced. If you want to determine whether your current methods are still relevant and useful, you need to look at the results that they yield.

If you have not yet implemented a content marketing audit for your business, you might consider doing one soon. To assist you in exploring this concept, the MintCopy team decided to conduct a case study of our own. You can utilize our findings to gain a sense of how to implement a content audit for your company.

What We Learned from the MintCopy Content Marketing Audit:

  • Social Media Strategy Our team first performed analytics on our social media pages, from Facebook to LinkedIn, Twitter, and the posts on our blog. We found that by promoting our content via social media, we were able to direct more traffic to our blog posts. We also considerably increased the number of downloads for our eBooks. Overall, our social media content seemed to be working well for us.
  • Optimizing for SEO Effective SEO is vital to marketing online, so the next step was to analyze the keywords throughout all our digital content. The MintCopy team discovered that some of our earliest content could be optimized with updated keywords. We established a plan of action to strategically place these keywords throughout the applicable content. After doing this, we will monitor the results and proceed to make further changes where necessary.
  • Successful Pages – Some of the pages that received the most views were also the ones that people visited for the longest times. We wanted to make the most of the content on those pages, so we decided to promote them even further via social media. Our team might also add more internal links retroactively to such pages.
  • Leads to Conversions – One of the most important aspects of our audit was examining the ratio of leads to conversions. After performing analytics on several pages, we determined that the least successful content should be revised. We could add additional keywords and further optimize the pages. By modifying the content that yielded the fewest conversions, the team expects to see an improvement in that area. We also plan to repeat the strategies that have worked for the most successful content.     

Content writing should be an integral component of your overall marketing campaign. MintCopy is a leading copywriting agency in Mississauga, and we strive to continuously improve our internal results. By doing this, we are able to continue getting the best results for our clients as well.

Once you have performed an internal content audit for your company, take a look at what your case study reveals. If you need assistance with your copywriting and SEO efforts, our team is ready to help.

And Why It's Important!

Featured snippets on Google are valuable digital real estate for your content marketing assets. These snippets are quick answers to search questions. Although snippets are designed to provide answers for the user without having to clickthrough to the page, Hubspot found that content with a snippet had a higher click-through rate of 2x or more, making this search feature important to your SEO strategy. If you can get your copywriting featured as a snippet, it builds your authority and visibility.

Use the Right Content Nails!

‘Cinderella' is the classic rags to riches story. Her sisters wanted to marry the prince, but just dressing up as princesses wasn't enough. Nothing the sisters did could make the prince choose them. The glass slipper had to fit. The real match happened when the slipper fit perfectly. Content marketing is much like that fairytale perfect fit. Personalized content can be that perfect fit. Here's how to use the data you have about your customers to make the content fit.

Don't Rely on Endless Spreadsheets for Keyword Optimization

Phil Frost, Founder and COO of Main Street ROI, says, “Successful SEO is not about tricking Google. It’s about PARTNERING with Google to provide the best search results for Google’s users.” Google indexes information to provide relevant search results, not to make marketing easier. When you keep that in your mind as part of your content marketing strategy, you can use keywords to support your SEO strategy to provide engaging content that delivers value to 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.
