What is content marketing?
Content marketing focuses on creating high quality content that drives potential customers to your online platforms. Providing regular and relevant content that can inform or solve a problem through the use of your services can result in obtaining a strong repeat customer base which is why it is important to include it in your digital marketing campaign.
The standard of content you create will have a direct impact on how well search engines rank your website on search results, which ultimately affects your overall brand visibility and ability to generate leads.

How to create an effective plan for content marketing
Content marketing can help your business in a number of ways, it can build trust with potential clients and consumers if your content is strong, informative and professional, but great content can also make you stand out from your competitors.
Compared to traditional marketing techniques, digital content marketing can establish a long-term result on your efforts. Consistency and quality is key for consumers but also for search engines as they will rank your site higher if it recongises a consistent refresh of new content of strong quality – high quality is better than high volume.
Deciding what areas you want your business to focus on in your marketing efforts is also an important aspect of coming up with an effective content marketing plan. For example choosing whether to focus more on building brand awareness or building sales rates, as both these targets can be achieved in slightly different ways with the use of targeted content and search engine optimization (SEO) for different search terms.
Writing strong content with relevant keywords and search terms is a great way to get your business ranked higher when people are searching for what your business offers and can provide. However, it is always important to remember not to ‘stuff’ too many keywords in your writing as search engines will notice and subsequently penalise your ranking.
Key components of a content marketing strategy
Website quality – The design of your website, its ease of use and speed all play a role in how well your website is perceived by potential consumers and also by search engines. Outdated and poorly kept websites will not be prioritised on search results, and most people rarely look beyond the first page on a search, so keeping your website fresh and current will work in your favour of being noticed.
Social media – Content on social media is perhaps one of the most common ways people notice a business through shares and discussion of the posts. Social media can also direct potential customers to your main website and service offerings, ultimately providing a boost to your SEO for high-quality website visits.
Email marketing – Using your email lists to their full extent by sending out scheduled updates and campaigns to your customer base will further enhance your visibility, hopefully resulting in more sales. Strong content within the email marketing, building your rapport with existing customers who have chosen to be a part of your mailing list, will encourage more websites visits which further promotes your content marketing efforts.
Blog posts – Content within blog posts can be targeted at a number of different things, meaning you can have a wide coverage of SEO through relevant blog posts. Blogs can also give businesses the opportunity to delve into different topics and case studies surrounding their service offering.
