Content Marketing Tips, Strategies and Resources
Content Marketing is a powerful arsenal that brands can heavily rely on, especially in scaling the business’ ability to build brand awareness, generate constant visitors/leads/loyalists, and improve the site’s conversions. This marketing practice has been around for centuries, but now has evolved and been embraced as one of the most efficient digital marketing activity today.
I’ve written dozens of posts that share different methodologies and insights in terms of content development as well as in promoting content to its targeted audience, which you can check out below.
Links will always play an important role in the search, aside from the fact that it’s the core in which most search engines’ algorithms are based on – it’s still the best way to rank content.
Experts also believe that links are still very much important, though it’s known that Google will most probably just value those that are evidently natural and non-manipulative.
Here is my slide deck from SEMTrends 2013 that was held yesterday in Iloilo City, Philippines.
The topics I covered on my presentation include some of the most important factors used in the realm of search today such as on-site technology, link development, authority building, online branding, and a few tricks on Analytics.
Improving a website’s usage data is very essential in SEO nowadays, as these signals highly reflect the quality of the site and the level of experience it can provide to its users.
Another reason why optimizing for experience is so important in this new age of search is because of the fact that Google Panda filters are now being integrated to Google’s search ranking algorithm.
Inbound marketing has proven itself to be very effective in terms of helping small to enterprise-level brands reach business-related goals.
This marketing practice involves a series of data-driven key initiatives. But the one key component that makes any form of marketing campaign actionable and successful is making certain that every action is goal-oriented.
I’m not really used to writing shorter blog posts – and I’m also guessing that most of you already know that I always write long-form content and comprehensive tutorials related to online marketing.
So I’m going to try something new, well not that new, since I’ve written some posts in the past that are just 500+ words in length – although, there’s something that I would want to test on this one.
I remember being asked about the single best piece of advice I can give for improving conversions on a group interview on Crazy Egg late last year. Although there are a lot of factors that can really influence site conversions, I chose the one which I believe has the biggest impact – branding.
The truth is, it’s easier to sell things when people (especially your target consumers) are already aware and fascinated by what your brand is putting out on the web (think Amazon, Zappos and Shopify).
