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.

I’ve worked with Affilorama for over a year and half as an in-house SEO (since early 2010 to mid 2011), and became an external marketing consultant for them for almost a year now. Those experiences alone have taught me ton of things that I’m sure I will not be able to learn if I’ve chosen to work for other companies.

Even the story of my career – as an online publisher, online marketing professional and entrepreneur – has revolved around the fact that I’ve been once a part of a really strong team. That part of my career has been a solid core of who I am and what I do now.

I talked about link building strategies, principles and mindsets for enterprise-level campaigns 2 days ago at Mastering Online Rankings Conference, which was held at Vista Venice Resorts, Morong Bataan.

The chance to converse and exchange ideas with new industry friends and certainly some of the greatest minds in our local Internet Marketing community (like Gary Viray and Rex Malvas, a real-life affiliate marketing expert) was gold!

Link building is an outcome, as Ian Lurie shared on his MozCon presentation this year. That’s true, and I couldn’t agree more. You can even automate your link development efforts with that perception alone.

To win in the link building game in the post-penguin era, you must know how to become a link magnet and should start mastering link baiting (no need for super viral content, just content that can potentially attract links). Since that’s where most natural links on the web come from.

Quality vs. Quantity is one of the perennial questions that have been frequently asked in the link building game. Most of us already know that focusing all our efforts on quality will always win, though some of us are still hesitant, puzzled and anxious of some sort. Why?

Because, providing value, as a marketing objective has been very difficult to scale, particularly on agency and enterprise level. Given that value/quality can’t easily be replicated, won’t ever be generic, and most of all – it can’t be done in speed.

UX or user experience has been emerging as a very vital channel for digital and inbound marketing, given the fact how users’ behavior and demands toward web-based content are continuously growing over the past years.

This constant evolution in web usage is clearly defining the changes in the online marketing space as well, because users have to come expect continually better experiences. This means marketing professionals must now work to delight as well as inform to efficiently get the attention of their target users/audience.

The incremental evolution of search engine optimization as well as with how information is being served and consumed over the web nowadays has certainly made content marketing a very powerful link attraction, social, branding and lead generation method combined.

Although, not all niches are gifted with this arsenal, as some might say, but is this really true? Not quite, knowing that all it really takes to make a viral content to spread like wildfire is to have a compelling material and know why, how and where to promote it.
