The Two Keys of Content Marketing
Your goals with content marketing are many. They start with driving more traffic to your site. Beyond that, you also want to make sales or conversions, you want to uphold your brand and you want to answer customers' questions and provide them with the information that they need. All of these things can work together to give you the type of success that you seek.
Unfortunately, many people get started and quickly decide that content marketing just isn't having the impact that they want. They think it's not working. In order to get results, there are two key areas you must focus on. Content marketing only works when they're addressed and considered with every decision you make. They are:
First off, you must have quality content. It's so much more than just adding keywords to a page. You need content that people want to read, that they find helpful and that they want to share. You need content that gives them something of value.
Your content also needs to be mistake-free and it needs to be formatted for the market. You must know your audience so that you can create content that matches not just what they want, but what they expect.
Secondly, you have to be committed to doing this as a long-term commitment. As the old saying goes, it's a marathon, not a sprint. Individual pieces of content or social media posts may gain traction, but the real growth happens over time. Too many people try content marketing for a month, decide it won't work, and give up. The reality is that it was working and they would have seen the results if they stayed the course. In a society geared around instant results, though, it can be hard to adapt this mindset -- even when you fully understand that it's the right one.
