Yes, You Can Market Your Brand Without Abandoning Your Principles
Marketing your brand can be a challenging process. The competition is fierce in many industries, and you may sometimes feel as though no one will find your website and other digital marketing content. However, applying sneaky, manipulative search engine optimization (SEO) tactics is not the answer. If you do this, you will lose credibility with your visitors, which means you could ultimately experience the opposite of your desired outcome. In fact, Google and other search engines do not look kindly upon such tactics, so you may find your web pages banished to virtual obscurity if you choose the wrong kind of SEO and marketing strategies. The good news? Employing ethical SEO can actually pay off when you utilize it correctly.

Bounce Rate And How To Reduce It With Outstanding Content
Is your website working as well as it could be?  Do you know what your bounce rate is?  The bounce rate is the percentage of people that leave your website after only viewing one page.  If the bounce rate is high, this usually means that visitors are reaching your site and seeing no further reason to delve further into your content.

Once again, it was the biggest night in Hollywood and people everywhere sat glued to watch the 84th Academy Awards last night. The usual red carpet action and accompanied oohing and aahing over designer costumes started off the evening. Billy Crystal, yet again, got the audience to sit up and take notice of his stage entry and subsequent song-and-dance performance. The man is funny...and with a straight face! A brilliant sequence by Cirque Du Soleil mid-way through the evening added even more pizzazz to this glitz and glamour affair.

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.

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.

So You Can Create Content that Google Will Find Easily and Rank High

When you go to the library, you don’t ask the librarian to tell you what to read. You want to read what interests you. In the same manner, when you create content, publish what your audience wants to read, not what you like. Okay, maybe the analogy is a bit outdated, or even alien to many of us. What library? Who goes there? Everything’s online! But you get the idea. Your customers have questions. They want answers. Here are three ways your copywriters can get ideas from your audience.
