How can content marketing help you and your business achieve your goals?

What is content marketing?

Content marketing is an essential element of your website or any digital marketing strategy. It enables you to attract visitors to your site in the first place.
Once on your site, user engagement and experience is vital to keep your visitor there. You want people who land on your site to enjoy it and find it useful.
Search engines look at the average amount of time spent on a page, and how many visitors clicked the back button and left straight away. That’s what’s know as the “Bounce Rate”. Bounce rate is an important factor when the Google algorithm determines your websites position in the SERPs. Returning visitors to your site are also important, which is why it is important to create rich, interesting and engaging content.

Quality Content = Quality Links From Other Websites

It’s easy to be tempted to stuff your keywords into your text so often that the content becomes unreadable. Not only will your customers show their displeasure with a back click to another website, but Google could punish you too.
Great copy gives your customers faith in your brand image and engages their attention, keeping them on your site long enough that you can persuade them to buy your product or service.
And by great content, I mean engaging relevant stuff.
Our approach is to research your competitors’ websites to see what content strategies they are using. How are they engaging their visitors? And how can we do it better? We would then produce content that is more original and useful than your competitors.

How To Add Content To Get Your Website Noticed

·         Blogs: Opinion pieces on topics related to your industry

·         Articles: An analysis or an explanation of a certain topic

·         Videos: Either product or industry related

·         Webinars: A presentation by an expert in the field

Link Bait – A Great Way To Boost Your SEO

Make your content interesting, valuable and unique and other websites will link to it.
Obviously, you’ve got to make people aware of it first, and that’s where your digital marketing and social media comes in. Reach out to people who you think might link to you, to let them know about your content. If it’s good enough, it will link to it.

Why Content Marketing is Important

Content marketing is a great way to engage your audience. From there you can start to create a community around your brand. A community can weather-proof your brand against changes in Google’s algorithm.
The need for communities reflects the changes in SEO in the past few years. You can no longer get by with link building alone. SEO cannot be dealt with in an isolated way, separate to your other marketing efforts.
