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

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 Plus, it can rapidly turn from on-trend to outdated or passé, contributing to a negative impression of your brand.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.

Revitalize, Refine, Repurpose

The Pareto principle is also known as the 80/20 rule. About 80% of your best results will come from 20% of your efforts. When you apply that to a creative endeavour like content marketing, you might be undervaluing some of your content creative efforts. It can be expensive to create content, from scheduling videographers, photographers, models, or even having quality copywriters write a blog post. Chances are that you have some valuable content that can be recycled or repurposed with a little elbow grease.

Why Your Content Must Be the Burning Question for Your Audience!

Google is constantly adding search features that help users get relevant information quickly. The “People Also Ask” feature has been around for a while, but it seems to be gaining traction as it’s being used in more searches. PAA boxes are another type of digital real estate, increasing your reach on a particular subject if you can get featured as an answer to a PAA question. Make it part of your content marketing strategy, even if you don’t rank for it immediately. The results might be slow, but they are worth waiting for.

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.
