Content marketing is not a buzzword anymore. So many big companies have used content as part of their marketing strategy and had such an amazing exposure. L’Oreal, Udemy and Colgate are just a few names out of hundreds.
Through content you don’t only provide value to your customers, but to your potential customers as well.
In this article, we will show you how content marketing can help your business and why you should integrate it into your marketing strategy.
Build an online presence
By constantly creating content, your business will become more visible. People will be able to find your company by looking up certain keywords on Google. Of course, one of the most vital aspects when writing content is knowing what keywords to use so that you will attract a targeted audience to your website.
Drive traffic to your website
Let’s say that you have a decent amount of traffic, but you want more. If you constantly publish content, then people will have a reason to visit your website more often. When they see that the information is valuable to them, they will share it on social media and with their friends. Keep in mind that social media is one of your best friends when it comes to sharing content.
Converting traffic into leads
It’s not enough to drive traffic to your website. You have to also convert it into leads. For each page of your website, create a specific call to action. Whether it’s to contact you, complete a submission form, download an eBook or simply subscribe to your newsletter, by making your visitors take action you will help them become leads, which you can later transform into clients/customers.
Your business will become an authority
It doesn’t matter what the nature of your business is. You can become an authority if you use content marketing to help your audience or your actual clients. For that, you need to figure out what type of content your audience would be interested in and what information would make them feel like they’ve learned something from you.
It starts a conversation with your audience
Content marketing is not just a one-way conversation. Even if your audience can’t respond to you in real time, they can still leave you comments and that’s good enough. Make sure that you answer them because, otherwise, they will think that you’re not paying attention to what they have to say. Ask them questions at the end of each blog article, so that they would have a reason to leave you a comment.
Content marketing is a long-term investment
Even though you may not see results overnight, content marketing will bring you numerous benefits in the long run. The content you create will be indexed by search engines and people will be able to find it over time. Your one-day effort of creating an eBook will most probably bring you leads even months after publishing it.
