5 Ways To Run Your Large Content Project Without Getting Overwhelmed

A large content project is a fast track to stress and disaster—but only if you let it happen. The key to success and keeping your hair from falling out is to plan, plan, plan. Whether your content is in the form of words, video or Infographics, here are 5 ways you can ensure that your project goes smoothly and gets you the best results.

Choosing Your Content Provider Wisely

Your content could be online for a very long time and so it pays to choose your content creator with great care. You could choose to write your content yourself, use your in-house teams or you might want to outsource your content marketing to a copywriting agency. Just make sure that you choose somebody who understands your industry, your business, your tone of voice and your deadlines. You really don’t want to be scrambling to publish content in the early hours of the morning!

Create A Content Style Guide For Consistency

By creating a content style guide, you can ensure that everybody is singing from the same hymn sheet when it comes to writing and publishing content. This style guide can include anything from tone of voice and target audience to how to publish your articles in WordPress.

Establish a clear chain of demand, deadlines and workflow

To keep your project flowing smoothly, it is important to define roles and assign tasks and deadlines accordingly. Ensure everybody knows what they should be doing and when, and that they stick to the content style guide. If you have hundreds of articles or a series of videos to be published, project planning is of the utmost importance.

Provide regular feedback to your teams

A larger content marketing project can be more susceptible to problems and they could arise at any given time. By reviewing your processes regularly and feeding back your findings to your teams, you can ensure that small problems do not become big ones. By providing feedback, you can also motivate your writers and increase productivity—content creation can be a lonely and arduous job sometimes, and it’s good to feel appreciated!

Learn from others, but don’t be a copycat!

There is nothing wrong with a little “beg and borrow” if it is done in the right way. The right way means taking ideas from other websites rather than copying and pasting large swathes of content — remember, Google doesn’t take kindly to duplicate content. Take a look at some of the big players out there in the marketplace and learn what works.

At MintCopy, we handle large content projects every day and understand how to keep your project running smoothly. To find out more, call us at 888-646-8003 or send us an email.

When you sell to other businesses, you can’t rely on the same strategies as businesses that sell to consumers. Website content for B2B companies must engage multiple decision makers at various stages along the buyer’s journey. More importantly, your B2B content must present your company’s services in stronger light than your competition’s. So, while you may have a good idea about everything you want to say, it’s critical to find out what your audience wants to know and then ensure they find it on your website, first.

Your SEO content could be replaced with text that Google thinks is more relevant to the user. Here’s what to know and how to avoid getting your titles rewritten.

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.
