3 Habits to Drive More Creative Content

Uncommon (but Effective) Strategies for Content Marketing
It can be challenging to continually think of fresh perspectives and new approaches to digital marketing content. Working with professionals can help your lead generation and marketing efforts in Toronto, but looking in the mirror is also a good place to start. Try changing your own habits and idea creation strategies to start publishing more unique and fresh online content.

These three techniques from The Content Marketing Institute are simple habits you can start today for better content creation tomorrow:

  1. Be Emotional: The pros know that quality content marketing is the stuff that makes people feel, think and respond. That usually involves hitting a nerve and evoking a feeling. To get that response from your audience, you need to be in touch with your own emotions and how your content will resonate with them. Hire a leading copywriting agency in Mississauga for writing that focuses on feeling while staying on brand and prioritizing SEO.
  2. Look Beyond Immediate Goals: Producing content for the sake of an end goal is typical, but a single-minded focus is also risky. Formulas, best practices, and results dominate marketing meeting discussions, but these teams often forget to talk about creation, inspiration, and joy. Your audience will catch on if your content is produced for the sake of data-driven results. However, if it is created by someone who enjoyed the process, loves creativity and produced the content they want to see online, your audience will respond more enthusiastically. Think factory-made chocolate where each one in the package is consistently the same, versus hand-made chocolate where each creation is imaginatively and skillfully crafted. Which one will you remember, treasure and want more of?   
  3. Quality AND Quantity: Don’t feel the need to sacrifice one for the other. Set realistic benchmarks for both and have them support and complement each other. Implement the QA checks you need, and maintain a level of activity that works for your team, customers, and content types. Unite quality and quantity for better, more balanced content.

A purchase transaction may happen online or offline, but shopping is definitely a universally online phenomenon today. Every buyer uses the internet to get information when shopping. B2B buyers are no different, regardless of industry. Manufacturers can’t deny the power of content marketing, but many haven’t fully bought into investing in B2B content. Trade shows were expensive before the pandemic. As we come out of the pandemic, it’s unlikely that they’ll make a comeback to their former glory anytime soon. Print magazines and journals are not as relevant as they once were. Your team can’t reach out to every prospect in person.

So You Can Create Content that Google Will Find Easily and Rank High

It’s estimated that Google processes about 63,000 searches every second. When you consider that most adults conduct an average of at least three to four searches a day, it’s evident why you want to rank well in search engine results pages. Many copywriters may use keywords to boost SEO but may not fully understand how search works. Google’s main purpose isn’t to function as a marketing tool to promote your product or service. Instead, it exists to gather and organize the most useful and relevant information for the user. Understanding this can help make your SEO content be more accessible and useful.

When you go to the library, you don’t ask the librarian to tell you what to read. You want to read what interests you. In the same manner, when you create content, publish what your audience wants to read, not what you like. Okay, maybe the analogy is a bit outdated, or even alien to many of us. What library? Who goes there? Everything’s online! But you get the idea. Your customers have questions. They want answers. Here are three ways your copywriters can get ideas from your audience.

Prioritize Quality, Consistency and Frequency

"Easy reading is damn hard writing." - Nathaniel Hawthorne, American novelist and short story writer
It can take a skilled writer up to 6 hours to craft a well-written 2000-word blog post. Engaging writing takes time. Time many business owners and their teams simply don't have.
