Creating Website Content for a New Business Startup

Start-ups face many challenges. A limited range of products and services in the early days. Budget constraints for branding and marketing. Struggling to reach the right audience. Not finding the right staff, or losing employees to the competition. These are just a few generic ones, and the list goes on. But a digital marketing and content strategy can pave the way to success and profitability. Don’t let any of these challenges keep you from dedicating time and effort to create a high-quality website that gives you a competitive edge.

Start with the Basics

One advantage that start-ups have is a blank slate. There’s no reason to put up dozens of pages on your website all at once. Start with the basics: information about your products or services, an “about” page, and sign-up pages for subscriptions, newsletters, etc. One trend in tech websites is simplification, one-line descriptions and short headers. Keeping this in mind, you can get your website going to start gathering information about your customer and building organic search traffic. As you learn more about your audience, add new products and increase revenue, you can build out your content to pick up speed.

Develop a Content Strategy

As you create content for your online presence, you want to get results. Acontent strategy is your content plan that keeps you focused on your business and marketing goals. You want qualified leads and drive conversion. As the old saying goes, if you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time. Content is an asset and needs to be treated as one. Create content that tells your story. As you gain an audience, you will learn what resonates with your customers to keep driving your content strategy.

Focus on Quality Content

Evergreen content is content that is sustainable. It’s the content that is relevant, regardless of the market or trends or economy. When you have a lean budget to create content, you’ll want to get the most for your dollars. Evergreen content is not time-sensitive, so it will last. It’s always fresh. It’s a good foundation for start-ups.

Use Your Metrics to Fine-Tune Your Content

As you invest in content, use analytical tools to determine how your audience is responding to your content. Be prepared to adjust your content strategy. Keep in mind that it is going to take time to find your audience and build shareable, valuable content. Ideally, you want these two elements to go hand-in-hand. As you gain followers and customers, you should provide new content for them to engage with and share in their circles of influence. New content should bring in new followers.

Break Out Your Storytelling Skills

Content is storytelling. Use your story of why you started your business, as content. You may not have a large catalog of products or services, but you began your business to solve a problem. Tell your customers what you wanted to achieve with your start-up company. Your About Us page should be human and real. Use your voice to describe your path. If you’re worried about errors, get an editor to polish your spelling and grammar.

Content is key to getting leads and traffic. A content plan keeps your website thriving. Don’t underestimate the power of a copywriting and marketing team.

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.

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.
