Good, Better, Best – Creating Consumable Content
– The Internet is constantly saturated with content that goes unseen and unnoticed. Creating fresh Content is hard enough, and to have it swept under the rug to never be read by anyone is certainly aggravating and yields no ROI. So, what is the key to becoming more visible to potential visitors who are searching the web for your product or service?
It all starts with original Content. On one end, you’re trying to stay relevant and compete for attention, on the other, you’re battling for getting ideas out first. Consistently producing original Content helps your website gain traffic and rise in the search engine rankings.
However, your Content needs direction, so why not guide it with a thorough Inbound Content Strategy. During the process of constructing your Inbound Content Strategy, plan on integrating the four E?s of content marketing into the material you will be writing and take full advantage of turning your website into a conversion machine.
The four Es of Content Marketing:
Visitors are divided into four stages based on their needs.
Great Content meets these needs at each stage and funnels them down to a conversion or ?purchase?.?Whoever visits your website should find relative Content and it will increase the chance of a conversion. [Four Es Video]
So, you?re coming up with all this Content, but not enough people are reading it. How do you get a browser to turn into a reader?
According to copyblogger.com, it?s a strong headline.
80% of people will read your headline, but only 20% of those people will read the rest of your content.
Without a strong, compelling headline your Inbound Content Strategy is practically nonexistent. In an ever-changing and fast-paced world with short attention spans, your Inbound Content Strategy needs to make a quick impression on the fickle users searching for information. The difference between a great and mediocre headline can be the ?make-or-break? for getting visitors to your website.
Some of the best Content, when done correctly, gives Visitor?s a sense of how to apply the information they are receiving. You?re not degrading the reader by telling them what to do or how to do it, but rather assuring them that they know the best way to use the material given to them. Content that contains instant actionable material can be a vital part to the success of your website and can get the gears turning in your conversion machine.
In order for your Inbound Content Strategy to be successful, it should contain web content that is relevant and interesting to prospective customers. Above all else, it should be easy to digest.
