Creating a Content Strategy

Content Strategy

Whether you run an online drop-shipping store or an e-learning education platform one of the best things you can do is create a content strategy. Above all and most importantly quality content is key. It is the main reason people access the internet. They are looking for answers and it is your job to provide them.

Understanding your Audience and Industry Better

A documented content strategy begins with research. First and foremost creating a customer profile is key. Next step is to work out how best to present your company’s products to the relevant audience and how they may respond.

Once you have established your target market try to understand what they search for and carry out an analysis to find long-tail keywords. They are diamonds in the rough and can be filed away for future content marketing and promotion purposes

Whilst creating a detailed content strategy you may learn that the demographic you thought you were marketing to is not where your focus should be. Trying to please everyone limits your ability to target and engage with real potential customers. Your original perception of the industry may also change and find there are more competitors than first thought. Standing out from the crowd by establishing a point of difference is a huge advantage. Importantly, you may even find gaps in the market that you didn’t know existed. These gaps can offer major opportunities. As they say, knowledge is power and now you have it you can use it to take your business to new heights.

Creating an Actionable and Detailed Content Strategy

Creating a detailed content strategy will ensure every single line of text, image and content displayed is strategically placed, symbiotic with each other and totally thought through. It’s not an exact science and cannot be measured but the science of creating actionable and engaging copy is real. If you want copy and content to pay off long-term, you need to know exactly who you’re marketing to and how to do it effectively which is where a content strategy comes into play.

By design, having a content strategy also holds you accountable for following it through. It enables everyone within your organisation to quickly assess what content is appropriate and what you are trying to achieve. The process of creating it will allow you to document and retain detailed information about your business, who you are marketing to and why and provide valuable insight into competitors and the industry you are in.

Quality content is crucial. Creating a documented and detailed content strategy will ensure everything posted on your site is relevant and focused. Content aimed directly at your target audience. It will enhance your brand, improve your web presence and provide a solid base to grow your online business.
