Content Marketing Can Do So Much…Or So Little…Which Goals Should You Pursue?

How to Make Your Content Meaningful for Your Audience
One of the universal lessons of content writing is that even the most perfectly crafted, highly engaging material can fall flat. If you are not truly reaching your audience, and if your content does not resonate with them, it will not have the impact you intend for it. Even the best content writers in North America struggle with this issue from time to time.

In order to create material that will draw your readers in and keep them coming back, you need to establish some relevant goals. By doing this, you will give your marketing strategy structure, and you can then work to implement your goals effectively.

Here are the top 3 goals worth pursuing to increase the power of your content marketing:

  • Truly Connect – One of the top objectives any marketer should have is to build a rapport with the audience. If you are not continuously nurturing your relationship with your users, you will lose sight of what it is they need from your content. One way to build trust is to reach out to individuals when opportunities to do so arise. Instead of always creating content for the masses, try emailing individual subscribers who have previously sought answers to their questions. Ask them for feedback and suggestions on what improvements they would like to see on your blog. You can also develop a stronger rapport by engaging with commenters and participating in social media conversations. 
  • Provide Solutions – Make it a goal to be one step ahead of your customers. If you provide solutions to their needs before they are even aware of them, your blog and business will become invaluable to them. How can you do this? By performing market research, as well as by simply asking your customers for feedback, you will get a better sense of the concerns of your average user. Once you have this information, you can apply it to offer solutions before your users even ask for them. If your blog readers are focused on frugality and maximizing tight budgets, for example, you might demonstrate to them how buying your products will save them money.
  • Increase Customer Loyalty – No doubt, you should always work to attract new users to your brand. However, making lifetime fans of your current audience will help you to build a solid foundation. The people who repeatedly come back to your blog or purchase your products/services are not to be overlooked. These are the individuals who can help you stay afloat when you find it challenging to bring in new business. These are also the loyalists who are more likely to routinely respond to upselling. Additionally, your loyal fan base might do much of your marketing for you. Without paying a dime, you could expand your customer base through word of mouth on social media and in “real life.” How do you increase the loyalty of your audience? Be available when they reach out to you, be flexible when customers have issues, and follow up sales and customer interactions by asking for feedback. When you get feedback, implement the suggestions you are given whenever possible.    

Many content marketing goals are worth pursuing, and only you can determine which ones will benefit your business. You can start by connecting more deeply with your audience, providing solutions to your user base, and increasing customer loyalty. All of these goals may be enhanced with the use of epic content.

If you’ve done a Google search recently, you’ve come across some of the newer features of search. For some searches, videos are getting more notice for more interactive and informative information for users. Another addition to search is the rich FAQ snippets or “people also ask” boxes.

Hungry? Order online and get whatever you’re craving. But first, you’ll check the reviews and ratings, won’t you? Shopping online for your favourite clothing brand? What are others saying about the new Fall Collection? Of course, that matters! According to Inc.com, 84% of people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation. Most businesses try to do everything they can to avoid bad reviews for that reason. Unfortunately, feedback, both positive and negative, is an inevitable outcome of running a business. Negative feedback is uncomfortable, but it’s also an opportunity to improve. You’re not likely to get those perfect 5-star reviews from every customer, every time. So, remember that you will never please everyone, but you can strive to please many. If you have a customer complaint or criticism, take the trouble to find out what went wrong. Take those negative reviews and use them to create quality content that shows customers you care.

You're staring at a blank page. You and your team want the best content for your landing page. It must engage. It must convert. It must really stand out. But most of all, it must resonate with your audience. So, where do you begin? Here's a tip: The best copy on landing pages reads like a customer wrote it. "This pain relief cream made my shoulder pain disappear. I slept like a baby!' is your customer writing your landing page headline. It will work much better than, "Try our quick, effective pain relief cream—buy now for 10% off".
