Content marketing is something that every business, no matter their size or industry, should be focusing on. After all, if you want to make sure that your brand is known and visible, then sharing the right content is key.
The trouble is, much like many things in business, it can be all too easy to stay stagnate and sit still. This may work for a while, but if you want your business to move and change with the times, then you are going to need to make sure that you try and grow your content marketing strategy.
But how do you do this? How do you make sure that rather than being left behind, you are the one setting the pace? Let’s take a look at some of the ways.
Create content that is targeted
When you want to make sure that your content appeals to a certain key audience, the best thing to do is to try and create personalised and targeted content. Of course, this will take time, but the idea is that you can create one main piece of content, that is shared across all your different platforms, only with minor tweaks as needed to make sure that you appeal to the right audience.
Think about new types of content marketing
Growing your content marketing strategy can often mean thinking about different ways to appeal to your audience. Technology is always changing and if you want to stay ahead of the game you need to move with it.
Video content is becoming all the more popular, especially with live video streams and of course the introduction of Instagram Stories, but this isn’t all.
There are now voice recognition gadgets popping up in more and more homes (Alexa and Google Home we are looking at you) and with this comes a whole new avenue of content that you can try out.
Always consider the entire journey
Running a business can sometimes make you become a little short-sighted when it comes to your customers. You are going to want to make sure that you bring in as many customers as possible, ordering and buying from you, however, their journey doesn’t end with the checkout. This is something that you really need to remember. Follow them through their journey, making sure that you offer support where needed. Then they may just come back to you, or even go on to recommend you to someone else.
It isn’t easy to stay on top of the newest forms of content. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try. Content marketing is key for any business and is something that you always try your best to do. It may be an effort, but in the long run, you will really see the benefits.
