Developing a successful content strategy can be challenging. Content marketing requires time, effort and most importantly a lot of trial and error.
Consider the following tips to improve your content strategy:
Excel at one thing
Trying to do everything perfectly is one quick way to fail. Not only will it exhaust your efforts but trying to excel at everything is unrealistic and will most likely create unnecessary pressure. Instead, focus on one or two strengths of your business’ products or services and hone in on those strengths in your content marketing. Research shows if a business is good at one thing, people will assume the business is also good at other things. This is also known as the “halo effect.” Use this simple strategy to your advantage.
Spark curiosity by starting a discussion on an unfamiliar topic, providing information on something customers want to know or creating mystery with upcoming products or services and so on. This is a great way to incite interest and keep your followers hooked on your posts.
Interact with followers
Interacting with your followers is important in strengthening connections and keeping them engaged. Respond to comments and inquiries promptly; whether they are on your social media pages or blog responding in a timely manner shows you care about your followers. When customers are satisfied with your business’ online behaviour they are more likely to become repeat customers and advocates for your business.
