One Brilliant Content Idea Can Go On and On and On...

Reach Your Audience with One Content Idea and Multiple Variations
When you are creating SEO content for your blog or website, you may be limited in terms of time and budget. Even when you hire the best content writer in Canada, you still need to run an efficient content marketing schedule. This benefits both your business and your audience.  The people who utilize your website want access to an ongoing stream of material that is relevant to them. Additionally, that information must also be compelling if you hope to inspire your users to return.

How to Build a Content Series that Engages Your Audience 

Once you have a stellar content idea worth expanding upon, do not restrict yourself to using it only one time. Instead, think in terms of a series of materials that leaves your audience waiting for more. By maximizing a hot idea and repurposing it, you could build a series that draws your users back time and time again. You can stretch one highly useful concept into several posts.

Consider these strategies for creating multiple posts from a single idea:

  • Reflect Your Audience: The media or content types you choose should be a reflection of your average user. Does your brand appeal to a serious crowd? If that is the case, then informative blog posts and podcasts may be the best ways to deliver your message. Are you catering to a hipster clientele with plenty of disposable income? Then, you may want to repurpose your content in the form of cutting edge videos. Under each video, you might offer the option to pay for more detailed content via paid tutorials or seminars.
  • Create Content in Installments: Instead of putting all your energy and creativity in one blog post, keep your audience wanting more by providing your idea in installments. Essentially, you will be offering content as metaphorical bread crumbs. By providing your readers with several inviting “bread crumbs” of content, you will continue to attract them to your materials. If you are marketing a new line of handbags, for instance, you could introduce the line in a blog post that highlights how the idea for the handbags was conceived. Next, you might offer a Q and A interview with the designer. This could be done in the form of a podcast, blog post, or video. Another part of the series might be an infographic depicting the evolution of each handbag from start to finish. Your last “chapter” could be a tutorial on how people can care for their handbags, or tips on different ways to wear them. 
  • Choose the Best Timing for Your Installments: After you have devised the outline for each aspect of your series, select an appropriate timeline. Is a weekly email newsletter your primary method of reaching your users? If so, you might want to offer the series in four, weekly installments included in each email. Make sure that you inform your users of the timeline. This will help to build anticipation and increase readership for each post.

The conundrum is that to ensure your content is consumed and appreciated, you must have a well-planned SEO strategy.

Communication is a two-way street. We share our message to get a response. How often do we forget to listen to the response? In our daily scramble to create new content, we often forget about checking to see what our audience thinks. We get so focused on Google rankings that we neglect our real audience – the customer. Creating an atmosphere in which you listen to feedback and reviews from your customers gives you a chance to let your customers know how much you care. Plus, it opens the door to some exciting opportunities in your content marketing strategy.

You’ll Find An Enthusiastic Audience in Exchange!    

Entrepreneurs cultivate discipline. It takes a lot of grit to get up every day and punch the clock without a boss looking over your shoulder. Most small business owners have their must-do list of things that have to get done, regardless of feelings and inspiration. Sadly, content marketing often gets relegated to that have-to-do chore list. It’s typically done out of discipline instead of enthusiasm. Gordon Parks, photographer, film director, musician, writer, and co-founder of Essence magazine, said, “Enthusiasm is the electricity of life. How do you get it? You act enthusiastic until you make it a habit.” If you’ve lost your joie de vivre in your content creation, here are some ways to find it again.

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.
