Telltale Signs That You Need a Content Marketing Agency

Content marketing agencies are different from full-service marketing agencies in that they don’t try to be all things to all clients. Instead, they specialize in offering a wide range of content and digital marketing solutions designed to engage your audience, build your brand and also improve your Google ranking.

But how do you know what you need a content marketing agency? What is the best way to engage a content marketing agency? Here are 5 signs you need one and some tips on how to get the most from your content in partnership with an agency adept at creating targeted content.

  1. Starting a Business? You Need a Flexible Marketing Solution
    Okay, so you’ve worked out your business plan, your logo has been designed and your website is live. Now, you need to start getting your sales message out there to the masses. A content marketing agency will help you do this over a number of different channels such as your blog, Twitter, Facebook, case studies, video, and many others. Flexibility is the secret here and knowing how to get your content across in the best way is important. Your content marketing agency will help you get off to a flying start.
  2. The Perfect Solution if You Don’t Have Sufficient Internal Resources
    Even if you have a solid marketing strategy, you still need the resources available to put it into motion. If you don’t have sufficient internal resources and you don’t want to commit to hiring permanent content writers, a content marketing agency is the perfect solution.
  3. Facing Temporary Staffing Challenges?
    So, your chief content writer has just gone on maternity leave. What do you do? Call your content marketing agency! They will be able to pick up the load until your content writer is back at her desk, and fill the gaps that will keep your content marketing efforts going.
  4. You Need to Build a Solid Industry Reputation
    Whether you are a CEO, attorney or doctor, building and managing your reputation online can be a challenge. What’s more, finding the time to keep your blog up to date can seem almost impossible. By hiring a content marketing agency, you get to focus on your profession while also ensuring you build your online reputation with the least amount of time investment.
  5. No Time to Keep on Top of the Latest Content Marketing Strategies and Technology?
    Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, explainer videos, case studies and press releases. These are just some of the ways you can market your business, but how do you stay on top of the latest trends? The good news is that you don’t have to. Simply engage a content marketing agency. If you are struggling to keep ahead of your competitors, you may just need to up your game and upgrade your marketing strategy to incorporate the latest marketing techniques.

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.
