Less is More—Change Your Content Marketing Approach

Go In-Depth Without Going Overboard
Picture a movie poster. Front and centre, big and bright, you will usually come face-to-face with the star. You have expectations about this star and want to learn as much about them as you can.  Now imagine your company’s online content. Does a ‘star’ come to mind?

If you can’t pinpoint a content type, topic, or overarching value that is in the spotlight for your content marketing, it may be time to re-evaluate your approach.

While the majority of companies produce 14 different types of digital content, over half of that content isn’t being shared, liked or getting many views. If you want your content to work harder, perform better and leave a lasting impression on your audience, you need to think about producing less while providing more to your audience.

Make every published piece a star performance. Consider the following simple ways Brafton suggests for creating less content that goes deeper:

  1. Infographics: Everybody is talking about Big Data, but making those statistics connect with people can be challenging. Infographics provide a great way to present numerical information and other details in a highly visual, fun and informative way. Content needs to be short, snappy, and connect all the way through to make the Infographic come together as whole. Balance strong details and clear copywriting with impactful and intuitive visuals for the best results.
  2. Animated Videos: Video is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to connect with your audience. Explainer videos that give a topic overview or instructions can give audiences the speed and convenience they crave while providing thorough information and not skimming over details. Great videos start with a great script, so start planning or seek copywriting assistance to make recording a breeze.
  3. Interviews: Audiences from all demographics and areas love two things – a unique perspective and original content. Give your audience information they can’t find anywhere else by publishing interviews with industry experts or members of your team. It’s an easy way to inject a human voice and personality into your web content, create original pieces, and give your audience new insights.

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. Google’s “mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Understanding that Google and other search engines aren’t created for your online marketing efforts can help you provide the right content to maximize your SEO strategy. FAQs were once an afterthought. Today, FAQs can boost your organic search efforts in multiple ways. Almost every page has the potential to function like an FAQ page.

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".
