Content marketing is an integral part of the success of any company. However, if you are not an expert, creating or evaluating a content marketing strategy can feel daunting. In this blog post, we outline seven content marketing tips to help you thrive in today’s marketing landscape.
1. Fulfill a need
When your content fulfills a need, you give your audience a compelling reason to pay attention. Some examples of content that fulfills a need include:
- How-to guides
- Do’s and Don’ts
2. Don’t skimp on quality
Quality is what sets you apart. In order for your content strategy to be effective and credible, you need content of professional quality. Paying a designer, writer, or digital marketer is not an expense but an investment, as long as your strategy is sound.
3. Whenever possible, make data-driven decisions
Shooting in the dark is frustrating and inefficient. Base your marketing decisions on data, whenever data is available. Tools like Google Trends and Answer the Public make it easier than ever for small business owners to use data to inform their decisions.
4. Consider using video
Video has come to occupy a central place in digital marketing. And while a successful content strategy is more than video, a well-made clip enriches your content in a way that both audiences and search engines love.
5. Don’t lose sight of what you want to achieve
A piece of content may look impressive, but in order to be effective, it must achieve its stated goal. When assessing content, focus on the substance. What is this content supposed to do? Is it fine-tuned to this objective?
6. Evaluate results and adjust
No content strategy is set in stone. Any campaign is an ongoing effort that needs to be tweaked regularly. Set aside time every week or every month to study the analytics of your campaign and evaluate the results your content is delivering. Then make changes as required.
7. Repurpose your content
Your needs as well as the possibilities of digital marketing evolve in leaps and bounds. Keep track of the content you create and consider ways to repurpose it. For example, a blog can become the script of a video, and a series of videos can become a tutorial. Taking your content strategy to the next level sometimes is as easy as taking a look at the assets you already have.
