5 Ways Gratitude Can Generate Interesting, Relevant Content

How to Reach Your Audience by Using Appreciation as a Theme
One of the most effective ways to reach your audience is to create content that resonates with them. This is also a strategy for inspiring them to return to your blog, website, and social media channels. You may feel that creating such material is much easier said than done, but it truly does not need to be a complex endeavour.  

If you have been searching for topics that might engage your readers, consider using gratitude as a theme. Since we recently celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada, we thought this would be the perfect time to introduce appreciation as a topic.

MintCopy is thankful to our customers, our team, and our business associates for their support over the past nine years. We couldn't have done it without your help!   

Gratitude as a Content Marketing Topic

You might employ thankfulness as a content theme in a variety of ways. In fact, using your platform as a means of expressing your appreciation could help you to generate many ideas for compelling SEO-friendly content.   

Consider these 5 strategies for providing gratitude-based content:      

  • Employees: Have you thanked your employees lately? Did you know that some of them may appreciate such recognition even more than a pay raise? You may want to thank them by way of your content writing, especially at this time of year. One way to do this would be to point out a job done particularly well. You might describe the ways that some of your employees consistently go above and beyond to accommodate your customers. You could also mention a specific occasion when an employee helped a customer. Did the customer send feedback about this incident? Make sure that you thank the employee for such a stellar performance on the job.  
  • Customers: Customer success stories are always worth sharing. Can you think of certain customers who have sent positive feedback, written glowing reviews about your business, or referred other customers to you? All of these circumstances may be included in your content. You could even interview an especially devoted customer and post the interview on your blog.
  • Peers: Perhaps your company partners with other businesses to help a local charity. Maybe you have collaborated on a business project with another company that might normally be a competitor. Take the time to describe such activities and to thank these other businesses for working with you.
  • Local Organizations: You can also express your thankfulness for local non-profit groups that serve your community. This is an ideal time of year to demonstrate your appreciation for a favourite group, and what better way to accomplish that than by giving them some free publicity via your content? Doing this might also draw local search traffic that would not otherwise visit your digital platform.
  • General Appreciation: Another option is to simply approach the topic of gratitude on a more general level, as we have done in this post. Discuss the importance of remembering what you are grateful for, and provide a few examples of people, businesses, and local organizations that have impressed you over the past year.

Content marketing can seem very complex, and sometimes, it is. Remember to simplify the process by including universal themes in your content, such as gratitude. Also, remember that you do not need to devise your material without assistance. You can hire professional content creators to help you reach your audience.

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. Content marketing can be an important element in your marketing strategy because it’s ready when your customer is.

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.
