Content Marketing FAQs
What is the main purpose of a blog?
Blogs are a great way to promote a product or service as well as share information and expertise about a topic in your industry. From a marketing perspective, blogging should definitely be a part of your content marketing strategy. The main purpose of your blog is to drive traffic to your website. It is an evolving collection of articles, keywords, and knowledge that all SEO campaigns rely on. Research has shown that you have a 434% higher chance of being ranked highly on search engines if you feature a blog as part of your website, and, businesses using blogs as part of their content marketing strategy get 67% more leads than those who don’t. If you’re not already blogging, this should serve as a pretty compelling reason to start!
What is a content marketing strategy?
A content marketing strategy is a “map” that outlines how to best utilise content to attract, acquire, and engage prospects and customers. This is different to a content strategy which focuses on the creation and sharing of content.
In a content marketing strategy, it is important to identify how your content is going to address your key business and customer needs. Ask yourself the 4 W’s:
Who is your target audience for this content?
Will your identified target audience receive a benefit from consuming our content?
What beneficial content can we as a business consistently deliver?
Where can you distribute this content so it reaches your audience?
Is social media content marketing?
Social media is definitely a component of content marketing. It’s made of the same fundamental elements that make up a blog for instance: Copy, images, videos, strategy, and storytelling. When creating a social media strategy or content, it is important to refer back to your content marketing strategy (link here). Make sure your business goals are converted into marketing goals, then content goals, then social media goals. This helps maintain consistency and a “uniform” for your brand and business. It also demonstrates the connectedness between the content on your blog and website as well as your social media channels. Social media also creates a channel of communication through social shares and comments which customers absolutely love!
What are the benefits of content marketing?
Content marketing has both instant and long term benefits – win!
Through optimising your content for SEO, it can help build your authority and credibility with Google, thus, increasing your visibility online. This helps to improve your brand awareness and brand recognition with customers which in the long run, generates more traffic to your site and improves lead generation.
By continually sharing up to date, knowledgeable and relatable content, your business becomes positioned as an expert within your industry. This creates a sense of trust between your brand and customers, developing loyalty and long lasting relationships.
Content marketing is also an extremely cost effective method. Inbound marketing can often deliver a higher ROI than outbound.
How long should my blog post be for SEO?
We knew you were going to ask this one! There are many variables that can and should be considered when deciding what is the best length for your articles and blog posts. As with any content creation, it’s always a great idea to look back at your 4 W’s (link). We always aim to write our blogs anywhere between 800 – 2,000 words, depending on the audience, topic, and purpose. The ideal length of your blog post however needs to supply the best, most useful and optimised content for your target audience that matches their intent. Always remember, quality over quantity.
