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.

Modern consumers shop 24 hours a day. Most businesses don’t have the capability to be available every hour of every day to answer questions and provide information. Chatbots are a popular method of responding to your audience. Although chatbots have been around since 1966, today’s chatbots are becoming incredibly more useful and responsive. 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.

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".
