Reaching Out With The Right Content Marketing Techniques

Time For New Content Typewriter‘Content is King’, again (we believe it always was).

The algorithmic updates of 2012 / 2013 has meant that more than ever, quality content is key / crucial for any successful online campaign. Whether your content of choice is video, images, text, widget, graphs, charts, surveys, polls or something even more creative than these, it really is not effective if no-one sees it.

Furthermore, the content that brands add to their websites need to speak directly to their target audience in order to achieve the strategic objectives sought.

We work hand-in-hand with our clients to ensure that we clearly define the target audience and primary ‘personas’ to narrow down the content types and nature of content which will appeal to them in order to begin a relationship of engagement.

Story-Telling Is The Latest Content Marketing Strategy

Story-telling is an ancient art. When executed well, stories not only engage and entertain readers, but also leave a lasting impression in their mind. Not every visitor to your website will be ready to buy immediately. They may just be browsing the web and stumble across your content, or they may be actively assessing their options with the intention to buy at a later date. Content should engage readers deeply enough that it evokes an emotional response. It is this desire or connection you make with your audience that compels them to choose your company over a competitor. So imagine if you can produce content that not only provokes an emotional response, but also remains in their mind until the time they are ready to buy. Do this and you are guaranteed they will return to you rather than your rival. Why is story content so powerful? Story-telling is such an effective art because it appeals to the human mind. When we read general text – no matter how compelling – we typically only remember a small percentage of the context. The reason for this is because it is only the language part of our brain that is decoding the meaning, and the Broca’s area cannot retain a great deal of information. When we read a story that has a beginning, a middle and an end however, we connect the dots and remember more details. Better still, create actual imagery and readers even remember the smaller details. When the neural systems in our brain relate a true understanding of the world, the cognitive guns are fired and this is...

Dancing With Google: How To Show Search Engines You Are Serious About Content

Google is serious about delivering quality content, so you should be too. According to the Big G’s bulky guidelines, business owners should be publishing content that is unique, informative and offers value to readers.

In response, the Big G took action with algorithms that penalise sites for publishing low quality content. Do how can you prove to search engines that you produce content that offers real value to readers? Create web pages that have good content The first thing to bear in mind is that the content you publish is for the benefit of readers. So you need to think about what readers want; information, advice, reassurance. To fulfil this promise, do not limit yourself to a specific word count. Make sure that every page you publish says everything you need to say. However, it should be tightly focused on one specific product, service or subject otherwise, search engines are confused how to index the page and it will not show in search results. Search engine experts recommend that any page you post live on the internet should have a least 100-words. If you are an eCommerce company with lots of similar products, you must have unique content for each product. Duplicate content is considered low quality...
