CONTENT MARKETING STRATEGIES THAT PRODUCE RESULTS
Content marketing will help you generate valuable content to attract your target audience
Attract your target audience and convert them into customers
The right content marketing strategy will allow you to create and distribute valuable, relevant and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly-defined audience, and, ultimately, to convert your target audience into clients.
Content marketing is changing the way people interact with brands when buying a product. When you provide your prospects with highly valuable content they become smarter buyers, these potential clients will be more informed about your product and will be able to see the value on the product you can offer them.
Help your customers find your awesome contents
Recent studies show that 81% of shoppers research a product or brand online before going to a store to make a purchase. And not only that: these consumers spend an average of 79 days researching online before purchasing a product.
People are becoming smarter when buying a product both online and offline. They research. They investigate. They compare. In fact, on average buyers guide themselves through 60% to 90% of the traditional sales funnel before getting in touch with a brand or setting foot in a store.
Why is content marketing important?
If you don’t implement a content marketing strategy, you are failing to provide your potential customers with your own version of your industry, unnecessarily giving your competitors a huge advantage. And more importantly, creating valuable content for your prospects will make you an authority among your industry players and customers: in the eyes of your potential customers you will be someone who knows what you're doing.
THE CONTENT MARKETING CYCLE
The figure with the content marketing cycle shown above briefly explains the process you should follow when working on your content marketing strategy:
- Buyer persona
Think of the real needs your ideal customers might have, which questions may arise in their heads. What information might they be researching for? What do they usually ask about your product? Try to create content that answers their questions and adds a real value to your contents.
2. Themes and topics
Based on what your customers are asking and looking for in regards to your products, create contents that are aligned and do provide valuable information that actually helps your customers.
3. Content creation
Go head and create contents such as how-to articles, new webpages, blog posts, white papers, videos, infographics, manuals, case studies, tutorials, FAQs, podcasts, ebooks, public speaking and conferences, presentations such as Slideshare, mobile apps, guides and other types of contents keeping in mind that these should always be focused on helping your end clients. Your contents will organically help you from an SEO perspective too.
4. Content promotion
Once you have a great piece of content, share it with the world! Find the right channels and places where your ideal customers are, and share your contents with them. Connect with them on social media platforms and promote your content on the websites where they are present. And of course do not forget to publish it in your blog!
5. Measure and evaluate
Monitor the performance of your content and try to understand what works and what doesn’t. Measure which topics work best. If a particular piece of content did really well and even converted your content consumers into actual customers, then you know where you should be heading.
Identify the topics and types of contents that worked best and try to go in that direction. At this stage you should have a clearer idea of what works for your business, so combine this knowledge with, again, what you think your clients are searching for and researching, and start the whole content creation process again. Only this time you will have the past experiences and insights to guide you and choose the right path.

It is easy to see why content marketing can be highly beneficial for your business
Raise brand awareness
A customer may have a need but perhaps he is not aware there is a solution. As potential clients search the web for answers to their questions and solutions for their problems, your brand continues to show up.
A great content marketing strategy helps to further establish your brand as an authority and thought leader in your industry, which strengthens relationships with your clients and attracts prospects.
Content marketing is not a short-term strategy, but over time, a library of great content will continue to reach more qualified leads and interested customers.
Content marketing is a strategy that can be adopted in isolation, but it is highly advisable to consider it as part of a wider, multi-channel approach, being part of a general integrated search strategy, as it will have a stronger effect and will add more value to your online efforts.
