5 Different Ways Through Which ‘Content’ Amplifies Your SEO Campaigns
There are more than 200 million content pieces uploaded online each minute. If you do the math, the figures become more significant as you seek to find out what it translates to in an hour, day, week, month, and so on. As an online marketer, what does this mean for your internet-based campaigns? Granted, with top content, you may still struggle to become visible on the web. To avoid being constrained with the spoils of appearing in the second and other search engine pages, you must find ways of amplifying your content. The question is how to do it and succeed. The five approaches below can significantly expand your reach.
- Have a content creation plan
Planning is a necessity, and you cannot risk not having any. It helps you remain on track and achieve your goals quickly. Have a roadmap detailing the type of content you require, link building measures and how to reach them. You must also zero in on your audience. As part of your plan, strive to generate or utilize the original material. If you use articles that another site has created, you are likely to ruffle copyright infringement feathers. At the same time, you ruin site rankings.
Search engine optimization is the fuel that runs online content. Besides quality, you have no option but to employ tactics that get you on the first page. Anything below this standard and you stand the risk of fading into oblivion. Some of the tried and tested tactics include finding and using appropriate keywords, title tags and meta descriptions that interlink. A word of caution here is that you should research your keywords deeply. Avoid being vague in your keyword selection.
- Use influencers
These are individuals or corporate web owners regarded highly by target audiences. They are an authority in the niches they represent. However, you should not over-rely on celebrity figures since there are influencers who are not of that type. The idea here is to find online marketing friends that are willing to share your content with others in their platforms. On your part, you must give them incentives and/or compensation resulting in a relationship where you both benefit.
- Be creative and aggressive on social media
Most audiences on social media visit their platforms to interact and may not necessarily buy a product or service. Use different approaches, for example, creating communities, initiating conversations and asking questions that engage their minds. To keep the audience busy, offer them giveaways, design contests and have referral programs.
- Promote like crazy
Just posting a fantastic blog post is not enough. Without informing them, your audience will not find the material and is akin to one who winks in the dark. Promote premium content on social channels by having snippets or quotes with links to the main post. At the same time, find past blog content that is still relevant and place it on social media as part of the promotion rotation.
SEO campaigns cannot be successful without aggressive marketing. For top ranking, you require a plan, proper optimization, influencer input and social media involvement.
