Online, today’s business needs to be more than just a nice-looking website.
Customers are no longer interested in a website that’s little more than a online brochure. Websites with rarely-updated, static content leave little reason for visitors to return.
Visitors need to have a reason to come back to your site. They want more marketing content, not to be found anywhere else, that’s relevant to them, speaks in their terms – and is delivered on a regular basis.
At the same time internet search engines such as Google, Bing or Yahoo! love to find new, original content.
They reward websites whose pages are updated regularly by placing them higher in search results pages.
That means that your business will appear up more often (and nearer to the top of the results page) if you keep adding new content on a regular basis. However, inappropriate or badly-structured content can work against you.
But It’s Not Just About SEO
Content creation is not just about appeasing the search engines. There’s no point over-optimizing business marketing content to deliver a high-ranking search result without having content substance that your customers can appreciate.
Search engines don’t buy your products or services: your customers do. Content needs to be created with your audience in mind, first and foremost.
Your Customers Are Distributed Across the Web
Where are your customers online? What sites do they visit? What blogs do they read? What social media channels do they use?
Even if you’re producing top-notch content, you’re wasting your time if it’s not being delivered to the online spaces that your customers frequent.
Content Isn’t – Necessarily – Text.
Business marketing content creation today can just as easily mean posting a video onto YouTube as writing a blog post. Increasingly, web visitors are choosing non-textural content such as audio (i.e. Podcasts), video, slide presentations, infographics and more.
Do you have the necessary internal resources to deliver multi-channel content across a range of online platforms? Unless you’re a marketing or media production company, then the answer is probably ‘no’!
“But I Don’t Have The Time!”
But creating marketing content on a regular basis requires work. And quite a lot of it.
If you have people in your organization who can spend the time to create new content regularly, that’s great.
But most companies don’t have such a luxury. That’s where we come in.
