One of the best ways to attract ideal customers is by creating exceptional content and sharing your knowledge. Seven out of every ten businesses (69% B2C, 70% B2B) produced more content in 2014 than they did in 2013, according to the nonprofit Content Marketing Institute (CMI). Furthermore, industry-wide, marketing professionals consider driving engagement through content to be their #1 priority.
Also known as article marketing or content marketing services, strategic planning and execution of valuable and original content accomplishes several results. For one thing, it gives your business a chance to provide informational value to visitors while discussing topics related to your product or service. This builds trust and shows leadership in a business’s specific niche, letting prospective clients know that they’ve found the right company to meet their needs. Providing interesting material, related to topics that matter to their audience, also creates the opportunity for their articles to be shared online. Now your business’s online article marketing has the benefit of word-of-mouth!
At the same time, the business’s content is doing two things to increase their search engine ranking. As people share the link more and more, and as new articles reference back to old ones – a process known as “link building” – the website’s importance grows in the eyes of the search engines. Here at Cyberlicious, Inc., our content marketing agency experts utilize the most efficient article directories available to maximize the relevance of a business’s content when it’s analyzed by the search engine algorithms.
