What is Content marketing?

Content marketing

Content marketing is still one of the cheapest and most effective ways to get targeted visitors hitting your website regularly, and according to HubSpot, marketers would prioritize blogging after it's our thirteen x  more likely to see a positive. Hey everyone, today, Im going to break down Content Marketing | The Beginner's Guide in 2020.

Define your goals

Step one: Define your goals. What is your niche? What type of content are you looking to create? What do you want to do with your content? If you dont understand the type of content that you want to create, you're not going to do a good job. Everyone thinks it's just about your audience, but you're the one creating and writing it. If you don't write content that you're passionate about, that you love; it won't come across as great content and it won't do well. So you got to first figure out, what do you want to write about what you think people want to hear?

Research your audience

second tip. You need to research your audience. You need to come up with audience personas. What questions is your audience asking? What problems do they have that you can help solve? How can you provide value to me? And by knowing this, it ensures that none of you writing content that you love, but also that other people want to hear about, which will help you rank higher as well. And you're probably also trying to figure out hey, how do I figure out what problems people have? Well, type in any keyword within your vertical; your niche, into UberSuggest. Go onto the keyword ideas reports, click on questions, it'll show you all the questions that people are typing. These are the issues, problems people are having, and by you looking at this keyword base, it'll help you figure out alright, these are the problems people are facing, maybe I will enjoy writing on some of these topics.

Keyword research

Tip number three. Do your keyword research, and this gets in, funny enough, to the last tip that I just gave. You're already in UberSuggest, UberSuggest also has a big laundry list of keywords that you could be going after. This will show you what's popular in your space, what's not. But you dont just want to go after popular keywords, you want to go after the keywords that are high in (mumble). So kind of like the keywords that are in the conversion list, or the keywords that have a high CPC. Keywords that tend to have a high CPC tend to convert better and generate more income for the website owner.

Content ideation

The fourth tip I have for you is content ideation. You need to come up with topics that cater to your audience. Check out what your competitors are writing. You can put in their URL into UberSuggest, click on top pages, and that will show you everything that your competitors are writing. Or if you want to see it based off a keyword, go to UberSuggest, go to the content ideas report; type in a keyword, it'll show you what's hot in your space. You can also do the same thing with BuzzSumo, it's just a paid tool, UberSuggest you can do it for free.

You can do the same thing with Answer the public which is also a paid tool. So, by doing this it'll give you a rough idea of what's working and what's not. And it'll break it down based on social shares, search traffic, backlinks. And that's important because when you re looking at the content ideas report on UberSuggest you'll like oh, this is what's working for my competitors. Well, if theyre getting a ton of search traffic but no social shares, that means you're just too reliant on Google. Ideally, you want pages, posts; that have a lot of search traffic and social shares, because then you can diversify your traffic sources.

Create content that is tailored to voice search

The fifth thing I want you to do is to create content that is tailored to voice search. It's estimated that roughly fifty percent of the searches are voice searches, according to ComScore. So I want you to use structured data markup, and when you do this on your website, it helps you get into the rich snippets. When you get into the rich snippets, it also helps Google pull your listings, your result; for voice searches that way your brand is getting out there and you can keep getting more traffic. This is important because with devices like Google Home and Alexa becoming more and more popular, you'll see this trend continually increasing. You want to be prepared for it. The last thing you want to do is see seventy, eighty percent of the searches being voice search and then you start optimizing for it. You want to do it now before it gets to that point.

create videos and visual content

The sixth thing you need to do is create videos and visual content. Its no secret that visual content video storytelling is taking over the web. From Instagram to Facebook to YouTube, its all super popular. And if you dont want to do videos, you can also try a podcast or you can even trying graphics; its a way where you can use images to tell the story and that works really well as well. And just to give you an idea, I only create four blog posts a month, but I publish over twelve videos a month. I see a trend in which videos are becoming more and more popular and its a better way to relate to an audience, to your brand, right? It helps you build that deeper connection. That's why you should definitely start creating videos today if you already haven't started.

Leverage social media

The seventh tip I have for you, leverage social media. If you're not leveraging social media, your brands not getting out there. Either way, whether your reach is dying or not, these sites are super popular. So the way to combat this and so, do well from the social app, is going live all the time. People like Tai Lopez, he goes live, he even sells from his live videos, converts extremely well. And through social media you can create engaging content, videos; that still do well. Sure, driving the people off to your website doesn't get as much engagement, but uploading videos still does well.

Follow the EAT formula

The eighth tip I have for you, follow the EAT formula. EAT stands for expertise, authority, and trust. Google ended up releasing a medic update awhile back. In which, they dont want people writing on content that they're not credible for. For example, Im a marketer, if I start writing about health, and when you get fevers and you get sick; should you go to a hospital or not? Im not an expert on that, no matter how well written and how many backlinks I build, they should have ranked that content because that's, not my expertise and it can damage someone. The same goes with financial content, Im, not a financial planner, I shouldn't be going out there and telling people how to invest their money and where not to invest their money and how to, ya know, maximize their401k. I should stick to what I know. So, you want to make sure you're adding your author bio on every page that you're writing content on. Linking to your social profiles, guest posting on sites to build up your credibility. Maybe even create a Wikipedia page. All of this will help.

Build Backlinks

Last but not least, build backlinks. If you dont know how to build backlinks the easiest way is to go to UberSuggest, type in the URL of any one of your competitors, click on the backlinks report; you'll see all of their pages that have a ton of backlinks, who is linking to them. The anchor text, you can use this data to figure out what pages you should replicate, who you should head up to get those links, as well. if you just have any questions, leave a comment below and I'll answer it.
