Good online content can position a company as a thought leader within a particular industry, which makes copywriting an important part of online marketing.
Consumers today are increasingly turning online to do their market research before hiring a company’s services or buying any products. Even when people discover a company though a business card or print ad, they are likely to go online and research the company before making any decisions. This research includes checking out a company’s website to see if they make the grade.
People also carry out searches on Google, which can lead them to your company’s Web site, provided you’ve played your SEO cards right.
However, once you have people on your website, you need to keep them there. This means providing content that is well presented, interesting and adds value for your readers.
With content marketing, unlike broadcast advertising, you are not interrupting your potential customers. If they are on your site, you already have their attention. You also have an opportunity to communicate with them directly. To make the most use of this direct channel, you should do more that simply advertise to your readers.
Instead of simply advertising to your readers, keep them on your website by making sure your offer content that adds value. This means making your content relevant to your audience and to your field of expertise. For example, if you are a security provider, you can post content that advises people on keeping their data safe. In this way, you demonstrate your knowledge about security, while also adding value for your reader. Good content can demonstrate a company’s expertise within a certain field, whereas poor or content can make a company look unprofessional.
Ideally, the posts on your website should strike a balance between providing value to your readers and encouraging them to but your products or use your services. A good way to do this is to invite your readers to contact you for more information at the end of your post.
