Auditing Our Content Marketing Strategy

Examining the Results of an Internal MintCopy Case Study
In order to successfully market your brand, you must continuously examine your content marketing strategy. Practices that worked well for you a year ago might need to be modified or replaced. If you want to determine whether your current methods are still relevant and useful, you need to look at the results that they yield.

If you have not yet implemented a content marketing audit for your business, you might consider doing one soon. To assist you in exploring this concept, the MintCopy team decided to conduct a case study of our own. You can utilize our findings to gain a sense of how to implement a content audit for your company.

What We Learned from the MintCopy Content Marketing Audit:

  • Social Media Strategy Our team first performed analytics on our social media pages, from Facebook to LinkedIn, Twitter, and the posts on our blog. We found that by promoting our content via social media, we were able to direct more traffic to our blog posts. We also considerably increased the number of downloads for our eBooks. Overall, our social media content seemed to be working well for us.
  • Optimizing for SEO Effective SEO is vital to marketing online, so the next step was to analyze the keywords throughout all our digital content. The MintCopy team discovered that some of our earliest content could be optimized with updated keywords. We established a plan of action to strategically place these keywords throughout the applicable content. After doing this, we will monitor the results and proceed to make further changes where necessary.
  • Successful Pages – Some of the pages that received the most views were also the ones that people visited for the longest times. We wanted to make the most of the content on those pages, so we decided to promote them even further via social media. Our team might also add more internal links retroactively to such pages.
  • Leads to Conversions – One of the most important aspects of our audit was examining the ratio of leads to conversions. After performing analytics on several pages, we determined that the least successful content should be revised. We could add additional keywords and further optimize the pages. By modifying the content that yielded the fewest conversions, the team expects to see an improvement in that area. We also plan to repeat the strategies that have worked for the most successful content.     

Content writing should be an integral component of your overall marketing campaign. MintCopy is a leading copywriting agency in Mississauga, and we strive to continuously improve our internal results. By doing this, we are able to continue getting the best results for our clients as well.

Once you have performed an internal content audit for your company, take a look at what your case study reveals. If you need assistance with your copywriting and SEO efforts, our team is ready to help.

Don't Waste Time Staring at a Blank Screen Hoping for Inspiration

A white page with a blinking cursor can be scary. You sit down to write next week's content and stare blankly at the screen until 1 min, 1 hour or even a whole morning has passed without getting any work done. It's not uncommon for people to think that writer's block is a myth (a.k.a. procrastination). You should just start writing (or typing) and you'll come up with something—it doesn't always work that way. We know writer's block is real. Creating great content doesn't happen by accident or under duress. Go back to your content strategy and find a new approach to creating valuable content.

That Should Be Your Goal when You Write Content with Empathy

Consumers are bombarded with content. It’s not just text-based content like blog posts and web pages. It’s estimated that over 95 million photos and videos are shared every day on Instagram. Over 500 million Tweets are posted each day. The average office worker receives upwards of 120 emails per day. Making your content stand out is getting more difficult by the day. Creating content that resonates with your audience is even more challenging. When a reader reads your blog or email, what is the takeaway? If you can’t make them remember the words, you can leave them with a feeling that you understand their needs. Empathy is a powerful weapon in the content toolbox.

With everything going on in the world, you may be wondering if people care about grammar and spelling on your website and social media channels. Here’s the thing—people now have more time to notice errors in online content. Smashed Media estimates that “grammatical mistakes on websites can reduce sales by up to 50%.” Quality Logo Products reports that 42.5% of over 1,000 social media users who were surveyed about spelling mistakes would not purchase goods on websites that had misspellings. It’s not as though your audience comprises of language experts and schoolteachers, but consumers want to see that your brand cares about the details, even the seemingly unimportant details like grammar and spelling in digital content. To support your busy team of in-house writers, consider hiring an experienced SEO copywriter who can play the role of a content editor.
