Steps to Creating Valuable Content

Developing valuable content to drive business success is achievable with the right strategy. We have compiled valuable tips to help you make a perfect content plan here. 

Locate Your Audience

“Knowing your existing and potential audience is vital to a successful business. Your business's success depends on your audience. Therefore, the first step is understanding and determining your business market and target audience. Besides this, try to identify their pain points. Once you catch the pain of your audience, start crafting strategies. Develop strategies to know their location and interests instead of relying on search engines. These strategies enable you to reduce or eliminate their pain points while actively reaching them. This way, you will be competent in gaining the trust of experts and professionals to do business with you”, says Kartik Ahuja, Marketing Manager at LegalOn

Develop Your Content Strategy

To develop a flawless content strategy, you should identify the core topics first. A core topic helps you stay focused on your goal. Let's imagine you run a business that sells perfume. You'd probably create content about scents, the best ingredients for a perfect scent, top-selling scents, etc. But you can not always write about those topics, covering the same territory. That's why you should look for help from experts.

With insights from experts, you can craft engaging content after a short while. Here are two main resources that can help plan your topics as well as your overall approach: 

Your customers: Send them surveys via email, share polls on social media, or talk to your customer-facing employees about the conversations that keep popping up. Competitor websites: If the competition is doing well, why not use them as inspiration? You've got a shared audience, so it only makes sense to check to see what's working for them.

Social media: Your audience is on social media, so you should draw insights from them there. Check out Google Trends, Twitter, and Facebook, and join LinkedIn groups where customers and others in your industry sound off on what's most important to them.

Create Your Content

After this step, you should know the subject you are going to write about. You have to create content that is exciting for the readers. Make sure to create content that is shareable and worthy. Use headings (h2, h3, and also h4, and h5 when needed) to create logical flows. Break up sections into numbered lists or bullet points. Avoid using any industry jargon and keep the topic on point. 

Furthermore, write about something that will make your audience feel fresh and relevant. Capture the pains and interests of your customers accurately. If there are any trending topics, tie it back to your business. Tell a story to your audience that they can understand and relate to. Include one clear CTA (call-to-action) in your content and invite your audience to share and comment. Lastly, make sure that your content is share-worthy and something that people want to read.

Measure and Analyze Your Results

According to Brian Bosscher, owner and founder of Condo Control,It is one of the crucial steps when you are creating valuable digital content. Regularly measure and track the performance of your content marketing project. Utilize analytic tools to check if you are following the main marketing metrics. These may include engagement, social shares, and website traffic. Moreover, it also includes ROI and conversions. With this information, you can identify what are the most useful channels and areas that require improvement. You can use this knowledge to clear your strategy. It will allow you to improve future content creation and distribution efforts.”

Get Interactive

According to Alex Taylor, Head of Marketing at CrownTV, “Interaction is the most important aspect of creating digital content. That is why you need to be careful about creating interactive content. There are a few things that help in creating interactive content. These things include podcasts, on-site calculators, Infographics, and animated videos. Hence, if you want to boost your social media exposure and followers, pay attention to creating interactive content. Let us tell you some reasons to create valuable and interactive content:

You can catch short attention spans with audio, quick movements, and other types of content. These kinds of content require less reading time and more watching. In this way, you will also increase brand exposure. Plus, it will also improve memorability by finishing off your marketing efforts with non-traditional content. Furthermore, interactive content helps compelling readers to engage and participate. Also, it tends to make readers share your content more. It is because your content is fun, colorful, and different from the sea of blogs. Moreover, it can also help improve your website's reception if you utilize it strategically.”

Expand Your Reach

One of the best methods to widen your content marketing reach is to pick a back onto someone else's audience. Now, let us make it clear: this isn't like stealing anyone else's spotlight. It is about becoming a part of a community that gets help from you, and you also help them in return. What you need to do is to create shareable and high-quality content on your own website. You need to talk about what you know. Also, you have got to show why you are an expert worth listening to. Moreover, apart from business partnerships, you need to be willing to engage and share with each other's content. 

Consequently, you will open up to each other's audience. Reach out to reliable sources searching for experts and guest bloggers to contribute to their site. It is a great means to expand your reach. Also, by doing this, you can get referral traffic from high-traffic niche sites. Plus, try to stay active on social media while interacting with your audience, particularly if it's on high-quality content from other people. Make sure that whenever your bio shows up somewhere, it must link back to your website. Your bio can show up under a contributor's post, on your website, on social media, etc.
