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.

Content is vital to your marketing strategy. The quality and volume of your content help drive your SEO rankings. The thing to remember is that SEO is just a skeleton without content. Content without SEO is just pretty fabric without a purpose. Many businesses produce content for SEO purposes. After all, you want your website to rank in search to gain customers. But if you forget about the human audience, your content won’t get consumed, shared and re-consumed. When you focus on your user first, making your content relevant and useful, your audience wants more, leading to better SEO rankings.

They’ve gone way beyond the telephone message system of the 1980s and 1990s. With a rise in Artificial Intelligence (AI), you can utilize this technology to benefit your own business.

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.
