Blog

Attracting legitimate customers will take time and effort. We’re talking about the type of customers who genuinely want to incorporate your brand into their lives, and quite possibly, stay for the long haul. Fortunately, a great time and place to begin is today in the exact spot where you’re sitting.

The goal is to create quality content that provides

Daily blogging is easier than you think. Start off with taking notes to create an outline of the bigger picture.

valuable information customized to tackle a specific ailment in people’s lives. Once your content proves to be helpful, you will gain trust in the reader. That’s why it’s important to clarify the purpose of creating content as a business strategy: to put the needs of the audience first.

Greet the right person

Describe the audience to whom you want to reach. What do you want them to take away from it? If you’re unsure, you must figure it out first. Then on a piece of paper, create a profile of an imaginary person you’d like to write this blog to. Consider the following demographics in creating your profile: age, highest level of school completed, location, job industry, job title and role duties.

Swap places

Ask yourself what experience you are creating for the reader. Focus on how the reader will be receiving your array of words, then direct every part of your blog to communicate with your specific persona.

Empathize

Determine which goals the reader is most likely trying to hit in making their business grow. Empathize with your target audience and respond to their needs and questions (including the subconscious ones!). Lay out the challenges and objections that may interfere with achieving these goals, and break it down to simple strategies with real life examples or data.

In addition to understanding the reader, there are key factors to consider in the structure of the article.

Optimize for readability and SEO

According to Social Media Examiner, the keywords you want to place at the forefront of your SEO campaign are the ones that intersect:

-       Keywords that are most relevant to you/your post/blog/website

-       Keywords highly searched for (find this on your Google Keyword Tool)

-       Keywords least used by your competitors

Avoid using fancy words, especially if you wouldn’t verbalize it to your friends. In other words, use plain language so that it’s easier to understand, and relate to. Wrap up your article with an eye-catching, creative title to stand out.

Look Back

Be sure to re-read your writing and polish your masterpiece. Great writers do not give up after one draft. You could take a break, leave it to sit then return to it later. Or you could ask a peer or supervisor to review your work. It’s generally better to request approval, or an OK – rather than suggestions. Otherwise the basis and voice of the writing piece can be altered in a way that does not connect all the content pieces of your work. As marketing veteran, Ann Handley, says, “If the customer loves your content, so will your boss or client. But the inverse isn’t necessarily true.”

Hire a marketing agency

Try to spend time daily creating valuable content for your audience on your platform. If you are unable to do this due to time constraints, consider hiring a marketing agency.
