Diversity Matters for Your Marketing Team

3 Reasons You Win with Diverse Writers
Whether you are looking to work with the best content writers in Toronto or need a new marketing coordinator in-house, consider diversity before you reach out. Having different faces, backgrounds, and abilities is important throughout your business, but it is crucial for the people who are crafting and sending your brand’s message.

Your marketing team and external copywriting agency or design firms need to be able to make your brand human, adaptable, defined, and unique. There is no easier way to do that than to hire the right mix of individuals with varied backgrounds, skill levels, and experiences.

The Content Marketing Institute recently highlighted the wider trends and issues of a one gender, one colour dominated marketing industry. They outline tips for event organizers and departments who are looking to make diversity a necessity, not a ‘nice-to-have’ for the New Year.

Here are 3 reasons companies only stand to gain when they focus on working with varied voices for their marketing content:

  1. New Ideas – Any marketing professional will tell you that a distinct perspective and unified voice are crucial for establishing a recognizable, impactful brand message. If all those brand voices have been designed by people with similar experiences, how can you expect yours to stand out? Even if you are not looking to rebrand, bringing a new perspective to your current identity and content marketing can illuminate new opportunities, angles, and perspectives.
  2. Authenticity – The more diverse your marketing department or outsourced content marketing talent in Canada, the more accurately you will be able to speak to your entire client, customer, or user base. If your content producers don’t share the realities, history, and views of your audience, how can you expect your communications to really resonate?
  3. Leading Edge – Regardless of your future plans, having a varied knowledge base, different insights, and expertise to draw on will give you an advantage. More opportunities to connect with new markets, easier international expansion, and previously untapped potential could be yours with the right mix of individuals. Encourage your employees and agencies to experiment and enjoy what can happen when new voices are heard in an older, but evolving, industry. They may not reinvent the wheel, but they could give you wings.  

Let your content marketing and digital marketing strategy fly with diverse leading content writers in Canada. From website content to SEO copywriting for your blog content, MintCopy offers fresh perspectives, varied voices, and extensive skills. We maintain your brand voice and identity but bring a new edge to your digital lead generation.

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. When reviewing your content, look for these things that can negatively impact your content strategy.

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.
