Using data in content marketing

Posted by on Oct 3, 2017 in Online Marketing | 0 comments

Is your content marketing going stale? Then it’s time to look at new ways to generate content and topic ideas. Many product and service companies generate vast amounts of data within their businesses. While this data is often used to improve business efficiency and sales, it can also be incorporated into your content marketing campaign. Consider the following ideas: Share more information about your business with your followers Many people find infographics and statistics very interesting. If you could create a unique infographic or content piece about the popularity of your products across the country, sales spikes and trends, many people would be interested. If you check out the OK Cupid blog, you will see that they regularly post articles about dating trends, sociological patterns, race and attractions, and so forth. Not only are these types of insights illuminating for the brand, but their audience is also interested in this type of information, making it ideal to share. Your company will also benefit if the article gets picked up by the press and gets republished, thereby driving traffic to yourself. Get the right content to the right people If you use data from your call centre, you can pick up on common queries and problems, and generate content that addresses these challenges. One of the goals of content marketing is to remove barriers to buying your product, so if you are able to pick up on common issues and help people, then you’re taking a step in the right direction.

How to Create Content Guaranteed to Boost Conversions

Posted by on Sep 26, 2017 in Content Marketing | 0 comments

What is the main goal behind creating a content marketing strategy if not to generate more leads and conversions for your business? In an effort to help boost your online marketing efforts, here is some advice for successfully creating content that is guaranteed to result in a higher number of conversions for your brand. Keep Your Headlines Intriguing  You need to find a way in which to draw people to your content – and a great headline will be sure to do exactly that. According to a recent study conducted by Outbrain and HubSpot: The longer the headline, the higher the click-through rate. When creating a list-based post, keep in mind that lists with an odd number in the headline generated a 20% higher click-through rate than those with an even number. Headlines that end in a question mark have a higher click-through rate than those that end in a full stop or exclamation mark. Focus on Your Intro  Once you have convinced people to click-through to your content, you need to give them a reason to continue reading. One way in which to do this is with a short, snappy introduction. Include fast facts, questions, and remember to keep all sentences short and to the point. Use Original Graphics  Content that has both a text and visual aspect is known to lead to more conversions. Just remember to keep all visuals original. Stock photos really won’t do you any favours. You could also add more than just a few basic images – how about some graphs, charts and / or gifs? If you’re searching for a content marketing partner that can help to boost your digital marketing strategy and drive higher profits, WSI OMS is here to assist.

Content Marketing: The Top 3 Tools for Effective Content Promotion

Posted by on Sep 21, 2017 in Content Marketing | 0 comments

What’s the point of creating epic content if you don’t actually put in the effort necessary to promote it? When it comes to content marketing, there are three phases that need to be completed in order to ensure success: brainstorming, content creation and publishing and, finally, content promotion. Below, we investigate the top 3 tools that you can utilise in order to draw attention to your content without having to spend a fortune in the process. Outbrain  Outbrain is an exciting content promotion tool that places your content on some of the website’s top publishers’ websites. It works on a pay per click basis and is an excellent way in which to draw attention to your best pieces. If you want to gain access to even more publishing outlets, you might also want to consider signing up for Taboola, which works very similarly to Outbrain. Hootsuite Amplify  Want to encourage your employees to start sharing your company content (and make it really easy for them to do so as well)? If so, Hootsuite Amplify is a good option. It makes it possible for you to keep track of who is sharing your content the most often, too. Unfortunately, this tool doesn’t come cheap. If you’re looking to save, you might want to try Circulate.it instead, which is slightly more gentle on the bank account! Social Warfare  This handy WordPress plugin is a must if you want to make it as simple as possible for people to share your content on social media marketing platforms such as Facebook, Twitter etc. It allows for people to share the content on their profiles with just one simple click!
