In this ever-changing world of SEO algorithms, updates could be overwhelming for a traditional digital marketer – changing tactics, evolving digital strategies and deep (and, at times, scarring) impact. So, is there a way to solve this 'problem'? Well actually, no. If you think of evolution as a problem, there's no cure. However, if you try and look at the reason behind an ever increasing emphasis on content marketing, you might find a solution.
All that is okay, but what are the implications of all this as marketers? Logic guides us to the simplest path:
Users search to seek answers -> A brand must help its users find relevant answers.
No. The emphasis laid by Google is on relevant content, but that is the case today. Google is able to figure out which content is really relevant. In a year or so, Google algos can be much further on the path of figuring out if the content is helping users find out what they need and penalise the signature SEO tricks of 2015. Such shortsightedness needs to be avoided.
The three word definition of Content Marketing Myopia is NOT. LOOKING. AHEAD. Focusing on short term benefits rather than customer centricity is root cause of this epidemic.
So, do you have this disease? The answer to this question lies in a simple checklist:
If you got more nays than ayes, the problem is pretty severe.
While there are a lot of things that go into making a great campaign, I've mentioned three easy to implement tactics to help you get started:
When we were kindergartners in the school of customer centricity, we found that by applying these points, social participation of a digital campaign that we ran for a hospitality major increased by 95%, while the CTR of the campaign increased by 63% over the same period.
Well mostly, yes. In my subsequent pieces on content marketing, I'll delve deeper into the specifics of this ever-evolving space, but, till then, do try the tactics mentioned above and tell us how they helped you.
