Content Marketing Can Do So Much…Or So Little…Which Goals Should You Pursue?

How to Make Your Content Meaningful for Your Audience
One of the universal lessons of content writing is that even the most perfectly crafted, highly engaging material can fall flat. If you are not truly reaching your audience, and if your content does not resonate with them, it will not have the impact you intend for it. Even the best content writers in North America struggle with this issue from time to time.

In order to create material that will draw your readers in and keep them coming back, you need to establish some relevant goals. By doing this, you will give your marketing strategy structure, and you can then work to implement your goals effectively.

Here are the top 3 goals worth pursuing to increase the power of your content marketing:

  • Truly Connect – One of the top objectives any marketer should have is to build a rapport with the audience. If you are not continuously nurturing your relationship with your users, you will lose sight of what it is they need from your content. One way to build trust is to reach out to individuals when opportunities to do so arise. Instead of always creating content for the masses, try emailing individual subscribers who have previously sought answers to their questions. Ask them for feedback and suggestions on what improvements they would like to see on your blog. You can also develop a stronger rapport by engaging with commenters and participating in social media conversations. 
  • Provide Solutions – Make it a goal to be one step ahead of your customers. If you provide solutions to their needs before they are even aware of them, your blog and business will become invaluable to them. How can you do this? By performing market research, as well as by simply asking your customers for feedback, you will get a better sense of the concerns of your average user. Once you have this information, you can apply it to offer solutions before your users even ask for them. If your blog readers are focused on frugality and maximizing tight budgets, for example, you might demonstrate to them how buying your products will save them money.
  • Increase Customer Loyalty – No doubt, you should always work to attract new users to your brand. However, making lifetime fans of your current audience will help you to build a solid foundation. The people who repeatedly come back to your blog or purchase your products/services are not to be overlooked. These are the individuals who can help you stay afloat when you find it challenging to bring in new business. These are also the loyalists who are more likely to routinely respond to upselling. Additionally, your loyal fan base might do much of your marketing for you. Without paying a dime, you could expand your customer base through word of mouth on social media and in “real life.” How do you increase the loyalty of your audience? Be available when they reach out to you, be flexible when customers have issues, and follow up sales and customer interactions by asking for feedback. When you get feedback, implement the suggestions you are given whenever possible.    

Many content marketing goals are worth pursuing, and only you can determine which ones will benefit your business. You can start by connecting more deeply with your audience, providing solutions to your user base, and increasing customer loyalty. All of these goals may be enhanced with the use of epic content.

And the Perks of Gaining SEO Insights!

How do you measure the ROI when it comes to SEO? If you’re looking at the number of visitors to your website, you might be doing it wrong. The number of people who visit your site could be in the thousands, but if your content doesn’t convert, what difference does it make? Content isn’t cheap to create. The number of visitors to your site doesn’t tell the real story. Here are three metrics you can use to evaluate how your content is performing and whether your content marketing strategy is garnering its money’s worth.

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.

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.

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.
