There's No Boring Marketing Content, Only Boring Writers

  
  
  

writing marketing contentDo you think that there is nothing exciting about your business or industry that anyone would want to read about?

Think again. There's no boring marketing content, only boring or unimaginative writers.

If you are in business, then someone is very interested in what you have to say. If you can touch that person's life in one small way, especially if it is a solution to a problem, then start typing.

EXAMPLE OF IMAGINATIVE THINKING THAT CREATES ENGAGING CONTENT

John Doherty recently posted 4 Types of Content Real Estate Agents Should Create. He is responding to the question, "Is SEO applicable to real estate websites?" John offers these suggestions (see the article for details and links) which, with not a whole lot of imagination, can be used in any industry:

  • Write for Forums and contribute quality articles.
  • Build relationships with writers on relevant websites who might welcome a guest blog and/or backlink to your site.
  • Share your knowledge with industry related communities.
  • Be a guest writer for websites that target your same customers.

BEWARE PANDAS AND PENGUINS

John mentions the Google Penguin update and taking notice of both the Panda and Penguin updates is important. You might find this article helpful: How To Redeem Marketing Content From Deadly Content Sins.

We are strong advocates of effective marketing for operation of one's business. Strategic planning is critical to insuring opportunities for profitability. Knowing the profile of clients and customers creates the intelligence for choosing a link for communications (media) that enhances the effectiveness of a compelling message or offer. Developing a strategic marketing/media plan is the essential first step that incorporates dynamic flexibility to adjust from experience following methodical testing of a well planned strategy. With technology moving so rapidly one needs to adjust execution in order not to miss out or get beat by competition.
