Stay Focused on Content Marketing


March 29, 2013 | By:

Having the perfect content on your website, blog and social media pages is crucial to your business. But how do you determine what content will drive users to turn into customers, and what will keep those customers coming back? The key here is understanding your customers needs and wants. Without this, you might have plenty of content, but nothing to show for it.

Your Audience

Knowing exactly who your target audience is is the first step. Who will you be catering to? Who do your products and/ or services attract? Once you have established this, you will know how best to serve their needs. What solutions can you, as a company, offer to this group of people and leave them satisfied? This is what part of your content must revolve around.

Your Brand

Establish your identity. Explain what your business is and what you do. Why are these things of importance to the customer? Whatever you have to offer should be written in a language that will be of value to them. Determining what your company is all about should be expressed clearly on your website.

Your Online Presence

The other part of your content, featured on your blog and social media sites, should focus more on non-promotional aspects of your brand. This is useful for link building and strengthening your online reputation. You don’t have to constantly be plugging in your products/ services everywhere. Have people become interested in this content. They will, in turn, want to be a part of what you are offering.

Overall, your content should be worth reading. If it adds no value, it’s best to not include it at all. Be familiar with your target audience and make their expectations your goals.
