Optimize Team Effectiveness for Content Marketing Success

Conventionally, the 5 Ps of marketing were critical for the success of any business. In the digital era, not all 5 might apply, but the one that always will, is ‘Promotion’. And there’s no better way to fulfill this essential step than with content. As a marketer, your content strategy needs a dedicated approach, much like any other activity that is part of your business. Having a structured team with specific roles and functions will keep everyone on task with their own responsibilities. Even if you have to carry the heavy load, when you’re aware of the different roles involved, it can help you develop your content marketing strategy and plan accordingly.  

Key Roles and Responsibilities in Your Content Team

Just as every department within your organization has dedicated members that each know their job, your content team needs the same focus. These roles can be outlined as:

  • Director of Content Marketing - responsible for the overall mission of the content team. This position makes sure that all efforts are consistent to the brand and suitable for the target audience. The director is the liaison between the team and the executive leadership.
  • Content Strategy Director - this role may be involved in UI/UX and persona development, as well as the governance and workflow of content.
  • Managing Editor - a role that focuses on the day-to-day operations; from guidelines to planning, processes and quality of content.
  • Creative Director - responsible for the vision and how things look in the final cut.
  • Audience Development Manager - someone needs to manage your audience and subscribers to get insight into which segment of customers will respond to which programs. This role looks at the audience as a business asset and finds ways to maximize its value.
  • Technical Content Manager - a role that understands the technology needed to manage and operate your content strategy. This is the person who liaises with the software and hardware to implement the content plan and related processes.
  • Influencer Outreach - this team member works with influencers to promote content.

In large organizations, each role might be quite specialized. In smaller organizations, the roles may overlap. A content agency can fill in the blanks to prevent something from being overlooked.

Teamwork in Content Marketing Delivers ROI

Content marketing today, must be a dedicated function of your business. Assembling the right team for your business will help you see more success with social media, search engine optimization, and with your overall digital marketing. Thus, making sure your marketing efforts get the most for your budget.

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.

How to Upgrade Your EAT & YMYL Content

Google is committed to making sure that its search results are helpful and relevant. Last year, Google made thousands of updates to its search algorithm with that in mind. Just a few days ago, another announcement about search was made, this time reminding content creators to create content with people in mind. What does that mean for SEO and copywriting? Here are three things to keep in mind when creating content.

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. 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.
