Our Content Strategy Is Going Nowhere...What Can We Do To Change That?

Congratulations! You HAVE a content strategy
That’s a great thing, you know. In an age where success is largely shaped by what you do online, having a content plan is a good start, even if right now that plan doesn’t seem to be working as well as you hoped.

So, let’s take a look at why your content efforts may be falling a little flat and those visitors and conversions are on the low side or even non-existent. Actually, ALL websites receive traffic of some kind whether it is search engines indexing your site, spammers looking for a blog to target or good quality targeted traffic that has a high chance of conversion. This last one is the traffic we really care about and will be focusing on.

I have a website and a blog. What’s going wrong?

This is a great start too, but it’s also where many businesses end their digital marketing efforts. They throw up a few web pages, add a few blog posts now and again and they think the work is done. In fact, content marketing is an ongoing labour of love. You need to keep refreshing and revitalizing your website and other channels with high quality content to keep the search engines and your target audience engaged.  Do this, and you will see the results you want.

So what can I do to reboot my content marketing strategy?

That’s a great question and the answer depends on how much work you have done already. If your website has been fully optimized already then it’s time to focus on publishing fresh content including blogs, guest posts on relevant sites and social media content. If your website needs a little work (we can carry out a content review for you) then it’s time to go back to basics with your content.

Here are just some of the reasons a content marketing strategy should be a priority:

  • It allows a business to define and build its brand and to keep content consistent and engaging.
  • You can use different content to target different groups. For example, you could keep content lighter on your social media channels and more formal on your website, depending on your overall business style and tone.
  • You can devise key performance indicators (KPIs) to determine what content works, what magic formulas to repeat, etc.
  • A content strategy helps you to avoid second-guessing and before long you will have a clear idea of what works...and what doesn’t.

Olive.
Olive who?

Ever tried to read a contract prepared by a lawyer? Did you get frustrated at the legal jargon before you finished the first page? Think of that the next time you prepare website content that is full of your industry’s jargon or tech-speak. Whether you’re writing B2C or B2B content, you need to address the user to engage them with your brand. How can you avoid getting too complex without watering down your content?

When you sell to other businesses, you can’t rely on the same strategies as businesses that sell to consumers. Website content for B2B companies must engage multiple decision makers at various stages along the buyer’s journey. More importantly, your B2B content must present your company’s services in stronger light than your competition’s. So, while you may have a good idea about everything you want to say, it’s critical to find out what your audience wants to know and then ensure they find it on your website, first.

Imagine putting up a business sign and having the city come along and take it down. Not only that, but then they put up their own sign that advertises your business. Instead of being a Mexican restaurant, you’re now labeled as a Tex-Mex cantina. Think it can’t happen? Google is updating page titles that are displayed in search results. Your SEO content could be replaced with text that Google thinks is more relevant to the user. Here’s what to know and how to avoid getting your titles rewritten.

A purchase transaction may happen online or offline, but shopping is definitely a universally online phenomenon today. Every buyer uses the internet to get information when shopping. B2B buyers are no different, regardless of industry. Manufacturers can’t deny the power of content marketing, but many haven’t fully bought into investing in B2B content. Trade shows were expensive before the pandemic. As we come out of the pandemic, it’s unlikely that they’ll make a comeback to their former glory anytime soon. Print magazines and journals are not as relevant as they once were. Your team can’t reach out to every prospect in person. Content marketing can be an important element in your marketing strategy because it’s ready when your customer is.

LinkedIn was once thought of as just a recruiting channel, but it’s slowly turned into a premier platform designed around content for professionals. To that end, LinkedIn is enhancing features that allow businesses to build their credibility through social content. Companies can now publish longer articles on LinkedIn’s Articles for Pages.
