Competition Getting Too Hot? Feet Getting Too Cold?

Expert Tips to Use Content Marketing for Your HVAC Business!

The HVAC industry can be extremely competitive, especially during seasons with extreme temperatures. Even the most experienced technicians can lose business if they don’t know how to use content marketing to their advantage and stand out in the online world. Your HVAC company needs a well-crafted SEO content strategy to use digital material that engages, entertains, and informs your target market.

When we talk about content marketing, we aren’t referring to advertisements or content that’s intended to sell anything. Instead, this content is created specifically to draw more consumers to your website, blog, social media pages and eventually, to your business. Blog posts, infographics, and other forms of media can be used to present actionable solutions using well-written stories and information. The key to successful content marketing is coming up with a simple but effective strategy.

With years of writing SEO content for HVAC companies, the copywriters at MintCopy offer these useful tips:

Don’t Switch On and Off Like Heaters and Air Conditioners - Create Content Regularly!

A random blog post or e-newsletter isn’t going to cut it. In order for content to be effective, it needs to be published on a fairly regular schedule. Come up with a content calendar that builds off different concepts. Develop a series that keep consumers coming back every week to read or watch your new online content. This also gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your expertise in certain areas of the HVAC industry.

Just like HVAC Equipment, Content Quality Matters

You can be a gifted HVAC professional and still not know how to produce engaging content; and that’s okay. For some, writing is like pulling teeth. If you aren’t enjoying creating the content, then there’s a good chance that your audience won’t enjoy consuming it. Don’t hesitate to work with a content marketing agency. This frees you up to focus on your craft, and still allows your business to make use of an excellent content strategy.

HVAC Newsletters Work

Consumers may not remember to check your website regularly, but a weekly newsletter in their email inbox can remind them. Successful HVAC email marketing starts with peaking the interest of the recipient. Cold messaging people is no longer effective and not recommended. Not only will it land your content in the spam folder, but it may also lead to your company being blacklisted for sending unsolicited emails. Offer website visitors a way to opt in to your newsletter or weekly deals. This saves you and them time and energy. You won’t be sending anything to an inbox where it isn’t welcome, and they won’t be irritated by unwanted email.

Tie Everything Together with Social Media Marketing for Your HVAC Company

More people use social media to review and find HVAC technicians than ever before. Use your social media pages as a way to funnel consumers towards your website. Cross-post your content and use social media to widen your scope of engagement.

A Sound HVAC Content Strategy is Essential

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.

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.
