What Do We Mean By Content Marketing?

Content marketing is not a stand-alone activity, but is better viewed as the foundation of all other digital marketing activities. You need a content marketing strategy to succeed in search engine optimisation (SEO), for instance, to get results on social media, for your blog to be a success, to create compelling email campaigns, and to convert visitors into leads on your site. It all depends on having access to high quality, engaging content, and being able to distribute it through the relevant channels to reach your customers when and where they need it the most.

There are various types of digital content assets used in marketing to promote your business’s services and products. These include:

  • Blog articles – These regularly updated web pages can cover a range of topics related to your business and your target keywords, and are excellent for establishing search engine position and reputation authority for your business.

  • E-books and guides – these longer, more in-depth written pieces provide valuable information to your audience at a crucial part of their buyer journey, and are often used as downloadable ‘lead magnets’ to collect contact information from potential customers.

  • Videos – from product demonstrations to educational webinars, interviews, and customer testimonials, videos are a highly engaging, mobile-friendly content format, and can be published on YouTube, your business website, or other social media outlets.

  • Case studies – these provide real-world examples of how your business has helped customers, serving as powerful social proof.

  • Landing pages – landing pages are stand-alone web pages created as a place for a visitor to land after they click on a link in an email, Google search page, or advert. Landing pages are written with a single focus or goal, with a clear call to action to remove distractions and focus the visitor’s attention on the task at hand. This can increase your conversion rate from your content and lower your cost of acquiring a lead or sale.

How A Content Marketing Agency Can Help You

1. Quality Content Creation: The primary responsibility of a content marketing agency is to create high-quality, relevant content for you. Content is still king in the digital marketing world, but lately, and to the detriment of businesses and their customers, his crown has started to look more plastic than gold. Whatever your opinion on the pros and cons of AI generated content, the proliferation of AI material has led to a lot of very generic sounding and uninformative content being published over the last year. We can’t emphasise this enough: generic content does not make sales. For your content to generate leads and convince customers, it must be well produced, well researched, and tailored. By using an agency to create premium blog articles, e-books, infographics, and videos, you’ll not only provide more value to your audience, many of whom are sick of AI content, but you’ll be rewarded with greater trust, higher search rank, and a stronger position for your business as an industry expert.

2. Content Strategy Development: Content creation is a core part of a content marketing agency’s work, but a good agency will go beyond this to work with your business on strategic lines to develop a customised content strategy that aligns with your specific marketing goals and objectives. This could involve conducting ideal customer/buyer persona research, helping you identify the best angles and titles to use in your articles, and advising on the best channels and publication schedules to effectively reach and engage your customers. This strategic approach ensures that your content is more focused and efficient, maximising the value of each digital asset.

3. Brand Identity And Tone Of Voice: For small businesses, brand identity is closely correlated with the style and tone of the content published on their website, blog, and social media. Your digital assets become the face of your company, so it’s important to cultivate consistency and authenticity in all the content you produce. A content marketing agency can help you develop a cohesive and compelling brand identity that genuinely resonates with your target customers, creating shared empathy and rapport through your published work. An individual style of voice helps to differentiate your business from competitors and also fosters a stronger connection with your audience, encouraging inbound leads.

4. Stronger ROI: Whatever goes on the Internet, stays on the Internet, so it’s important that every digital asset is not only carefully considered for style and message, but also optimised to deliver the greatest long-term return on investment. A good blog article or well-written e-book, for example, could send customers your way for years, securing you a strong position in Google search results and plenty of social currency. A content marketing agency will have one eye on the future with every digital asset that they create for you, whether you’re responding to a breaking news story or writing an evergreen FAQs page for your website. Your agency partner will help you refine your strategy over time, identifying key performance indicators and engagement metrics for each asset to track the success of your campaign and make targeted improvements. This long-term, data driven approach ensures that your content investments generate a solid ROI for your business. 

5. Competitor Analysis: Content is never produced in a vacuum but exists in an industry context that includes content produced by your competitors, suppliers, and customers. A good content marketing agency will, therefore, make their recommendations based on a thorough analysis of your market, identifying the strategies, strengths, and weaknesses in your competitor’s content, including how it features in searches and conversations on social media. This will give you valuable insight into what’s working and what’s not, what trends are important to your customers, and how you can position your company for the best results from your content.
