Creating quality content has never been more critical for businesses in today’s fast-paced and highly competitive digital landscape. In fact, did you know that content marketing generates 3 times more leads compared to traditional adverstising?
Whether blog posts, videos, or social media updates, content has become the heartbeat of marketing. It’s certainly a tool to help you build brand awareness, generate leads, and drive results.
In light of this, we can’t help but wonder something. When we see online content posted on social media (such as Instagram, Facebook, or LinkedIn) or an article or a video on a company’s website, how do we (as the business) know that it’s actually been seen?
Let’s think about that for a second. We’ve all been there where we’ve watched, read, shared, or talked about something that’s grabbed our attention, and others we’ve clicked off without giving it a second thought. In fact, the average amount of time we spend looking at a piece of content is a staggeringly short amount of time:
And why is this?
It all comes down to whether the content we’re watching is something we feel resonates with us, our interests, our wants, and our needs.
If you have ever run a blog before, you know how hard it is to keep the content you produce interesting. You need help to come up with new ideas and thoughts which will create more traffic to your blog. You need to have a fresh perspective to keep your audience coming back; this is where content marketing comes into the equation.
So, in this article, we’ll explore different ways to keep content fresh and exciting for long-term use.
Knowing your audience is the first step.
Take the time to understand who your target audience is, what they want, and their interests. This is key to creating content that resonates with them. Remember to conduct research, gather data, and use analytics to get to know your audience and their preferences.
Experiment with different formats. Why not mix them up!
Try experimenting with different content formats. Our recommended examples are through blog posts, videos, infographics, podcasts, and social media posts. This will help you keep your content exciting and engaging for your audience and provide opportunities to reach them in new and creative ways.
Stay up-to-date with industry trends.
Keeping abreast of industry trends and news will help you create content that is relevant, timely, and of interest to your audience. Use tools like Google Alerts, Hootsuite, or any others to stay informed about what’s the hot topics in your industry!
Remember to keep content fresh and new.
Avoid repeating the same themes and formats too often. Instead, strive to bring new and innovative ideas to the table. Make time to have a brainstorming sessions with your team at least once a week, and see what ideas pop up!
Collaborating with others goes a long way.
Collaborating with other brands, influencers, or experts in your industry will bring fresh perspectives to your content marketing efforts. This will also help to reach new audiences and expand your reach. It’s important to make sure that your collaborations resonate with your business ethos and culture. So, make sure to do some research on whom you reach out to!
Get feedback from your audience.
The main ingredient to trust is openness and honesty. So, we encourage you to reach out to your audience and ask them to provide feedback on your content. For example, you can ask them what they like, what they don’t like, and what they would like to see more of. This feedback can help you create more relevant and engaging content for your audience.
