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.

Content marketing has undergone a serious transformation since the concept was first introduced to the digital marketplace. Now, we know that the majority of successful marketers focus on using online content to add value rather than pushing sales. This is increasingly important in B2B marketing that targets professionals and industry insiders.

It’s true, bad grapes make poor wine; BUT good vintners only use the very best grapes. The same concept applies to your web content. The quality of copywriting is directly affected by the quality of the brief that directs the content. When savvy content marketers provide a brief, they are trying to figure out the best strategy for their writers. They are finding the best grapes to make the best possible wine.

No one wants to spend hours designing and writing content that’s rejected. Content writing or copywriting and digital marketing are all based on strategy and value. When copywriters don’t receive enough information about a company’s goals, audience, and purpose, they are left trying to fill in the blanks. This leaves both the client and the writer frustrated and losing time and money.

Your Audience will Enjoy the Break and Share Your Content Readily

Unless you’re blessed with insanely linear organizational skills, you understand how boring anything formal or stiffly written can be. Reading through educational materials isn’t exactly fun for many. That is, until you come across someone who knows how to write for their audience instead of just their topic.

Like traditional storefronts, business owners make the effort to ensure their e-stores look attractive. The challenge in the online world is that unless prospective buyers actually find your website, it’s like putting up a fancy, expensive billboard in the middle of the forest – where no one will see it! E-commerce website are often overlooked when it comes to detailed search engine optimization (SEO). A lot of business owners assume that sales come from quality products, and neglect to optimize their product descriptions.

When the internet first started, most of us turned our noses up at the prospect of advertising online. As a business owner, you felt that you needed to go with proven marketing. This meant radio ads, billboards, paper advertising, and even the occasional TV ad when things were going well. Most of us have been around long enough to know how the Internet evolved.

When the other advertising methods weren’t as effective, many of us made the decision to focus on digital marketing. At first it started out with the quick pop-up ads that we could get placed conveniently on related sites. Then, we made the choice to really invest in online advertising. Content marketing was still fairly young, and getting your own website wasn’t exactly cheap.

Focusing all your time and attention on following Google guidelines could be distracting you from other methods that can help to diversify your content marketing tactics. Sometimes, engaging your audience can literally mean exchanging new ideas online in response to inquiries or comments. Taking a personal interest in driving traffic to your website can help you build your brand while increasing your online presence.

Studies show that only around 40% of your lead referrals are generated by popular search engines. This leaves roughly 60% to be drummed up using other means. These can include:
