Creating Quality Content In 2020

Creating Quality Content In 2020 1000 563 Admin

Content Marketing trends have changed big time and continue to do so. Especially in 2020, when the pandemic has caused innumerable content creators to surface. The ‘content clutter’ is causing havoc on the internet. People are getting overwhelmed, not just by consuming so much content all at once but also by the pressure of how to create quality content, as fast as possible, in minimum intervals. There are specific areas in an Internet marketing company that works towards keeping track of content and the trends to follow.

People who are creating content may or may not be aware of how they’re doing. They may use tools like Google Ads to increase reach, and Google Analytics to analyze the impact of the content. However, there are content wizards, who are so good at creating amazing content, that their content alone, can teach us a thing or two. 

  • TED

TED is a video content medium, that provides a platform to industrialists, entrepreneurs, and pretty much people from every field to share their anecdotes and experiences. TEDx has millions of followers on YouTube and with its start in 2010, they were clear that people want to learn, be informed, and consume content that provides some value to them. Hence, they continuously did and are doing the same by following the content marketing trends.

  • Jay Shetty

The brand that ‘Jay Shetty’ is, wasn’t this big initially. Jay Shetty’s story is similar to Robin Sharma’s book title ‘A Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’. Only in this case, Jay Shetty was a monk who, because of his monk-life lessons, got many Ferraris.  He started to provide lessons to the rest of the world. The approach of his presentation became his unique selling point. The power of his high-quality content lies in an omnichannel presence towards his audience via the art of storytelling.

Useful Tools To Create Quality Content

Generating great content ideas is a creative process but with changing content marketing trends, the ideas are right in front of us. One thing we learn from online creators is how to create quality content. However, there is a whole process that goes into providing quality & good content for websites. There are some key points that can help with the high-quality content & give more relevance, reach, and respect to it. 

SEO

When it comes to search engine optimization, content marketing trends don’t matter. SEO is the everlasting tool for high-quality content. Good content for websites you own is the one that has been well researched in the keyword area. Keyword research gives your content wings, if you will, to go anywhere on the web. 

Multimedia

High-quality content is created by keeping in mind the audience. You don’t want them to get bored and as psychologically proven, Visuals are highly recommended for a better understanding of any content. Videos, GIFs, Images, infographics are all likely to keep the audience hooked till the end. If your content quality will enhance, so will your brand value. 

Formatting

Most of the content online gets shrugged off due to poor formatting. The heading is the first & only thing that attracts an audience and a high-quality content consists of catchy & crisp heading. Keeping paragraphs short is another content trend. People don’t like to read long paragraphs & prefer shorter ones, which also makes your content richer in terms of content consumption. 

The readability increases with shorter paragraphs and readable fonts. So for high-quality content, choosing the right font is also another way to up the game. Using a balanced language throughout with all the questions answered. Working on the formatting will give your content an A-one quality.

Determining Marketing Goals

When you create content, you first think about what resonates with your brand and your target audience. In the age of rapidly changing content marketing trends, having a marketing goal is the first step to giving your content quality.

Look for the most popular and effective marketing tools and then determine your marketing goal. Know what your brand needs. Having a goal will give you a purpose to create more and more quality content. Create short-term goals and experience short-term success for long-term ones. Once you set a goal, work only towards that goal. A monthly plan or a weekly one, as per your convenience. 

Consumer Value

When we talk about creating quality content, the first thing we note is consumer value. Any content is quality if it’s giving something to the person consuming it. It can be in the form of information, entertainment, or materials like links, pdfs, book recommendations, or ebooks. An audience will come back to your content only if they get something out of it. Give them as much value as possible. That alone is enough to start off with creating high-quality content.

Collaboration

How to create quality content in 2020? Ask influencers or affiliate marketers. This year has given tremendous opportunities for internet rulers to rule and be rich. If your content is providing consumer value, brands will approach you soon enough for you to promote them with your content. 

If you have a brand approaching you for promotion, you need to make sure that the brand is reliable and is resonating with your own brand value, only then will your promotional content be of quality. 

Apart from that, Guest blogging & other medium collaborations are also a great way to up your content game.

How To Create Quality Content:

1. RESEARCH

The first step shall always remain – Research. Nothing can go right without thorough research. You need to research your content, niche, audience, competitors, marketing strategy, and everything that enhances your content quality.

2. PLAN

After fruitful research, plan your content according to the platforms you’re going to publish it too. Compare the target audience and strategize how much time you’ll take to create your content. Accordingly, provide teasers to your audience about the content you’re working on. Like the Guessing Game or Polls. This will keep your audience hooked, even before your content gets published. 

3. CREATE

Create your content with your plans intact and your research in hand. Keep pointers using an index card or a planner of the elements you need, to create high-quality content.

4. REVIEW

Now, review the content you’ve created, edit the visuals, text, language, or style wherever necessary, with an audience mindset. You’ll understand what your audience would like and what they may not.

5. PUBLISH

Once you’ve analyzed the content, share it with your audience. Reply to every comment possible and keep an open mind to receive constructive criticism, which is also a contributor to creating quality content in the future.

Conclusion:

With such tools and steps, you can create quality content without wasting your time. Creating good content in 2020 is like being true to yourself and your audience. Research and create with all things in mind, your website will have lots of organic visitors. Take the example of TED, Jay Shetty, Seth Godin, Simon Sinek and so many more online musketeers, whose content quality has been top-notch and who’re still working towards high-quality content every day. You can also take the help of a creative agency as it works towards creating quality content or helping brands to do that.

The one more key to creating high-quality content is also to not get carried away with one type of quality content. Instead, after sharing one, start working on another higher quality content. Because we know, if the consumer is the ruler, the content remains king, and quality content stays for a long time.

The Importance of Content in Social Media Content Marketing

The Importance of Content in Social Media Content Marketing 512 288 Admin

Social media is the main source of digital marketing in the current era. It drives the forces of quality content and reaches millions of people in the shortest time duration. It increases the brand’s traffic, customer satisfaction, SEO, and brand loyalty. Most companies try to stay at the top of their game with their social media marketing. And with the right content, they can further boost their brand. 

social media content marketing

Content is a broad category that encompasses anything that can be marketed. For social media marketing, a mix of different types of amazing content is the key. Content is the first thing that customers notice while purchasing any product or service through social media. If the content does not meet the customer’s expectations they are likely to not purchase anything even if the product is adequate. 

There are several types of content that can be used effectively to strengthen a brand’s social media marketing strategy. 

Types of Content 

Images

Visual content is highly regarded on social media. It is understood quickly by followers and does not require any decoding. Visual content is easy to create as people can use their smartphones to capture images. They can edit these images with apps that provide features such as filters, crop, exposure, etc. 

The best platforms for image-centered content are Instagram and Pinterest. Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat are also well-known platforms for visual content. 

Posts and blogs 

Written content can be extremely persuasive and brands must try to use it to the best of their abilities. Content is considered well written when one has a good grasp and command on the language. It is a great way of sharing information with customers about the brand and its products. If the written blogs and posts provide useful information, customers are likely to trust the brand more and purchase their products. 

Blogs can help increase more traffic to the brand’s page, as it increases SEO and audience engagement. 

Video 

Another great type of content is video marketing. It has gained mass recognition in recent years and is widely used for social media content marketing. It helps create a relationship with the audience and increases the return on investment. 50% of customers are more interested in video content than any other form of content. 

social media content marketing

Video content can be designed based on what the target audience wants to see. Brands can shoot “How to” videos and product demonstrations that teach customers about the usability of the product. This can be an effective social media content marketing strategy to influence them into buying the products. 

Platforms such as Youtube, Facebook, IGTV (Instagram), Linkedin and Twitter are ideal for video marketing. 

Infographics

Infographics are digital visuals that help to explain concepts with statistics and text. They are used to convey ideas that are complex in nature. It is an effective way of communicating with followers by using simple words and clear images. Infographics require a great deal of creativity as well as research. 

Importance of Content 

Brand reputation and trust 

Customers tend to create an opinion about the brand when they see good content. If the content is insightful, they tend to value the brand more. With this, brands establish a certain level of trust with their customers which in turn, builds a positive brand reputation. And if the brand is publishing content on a third-party portal as a part of their outreach strategies, the brand then seems to be more reliable and reputable. 

Helps improve SEO

The visibility of any digital brand depends on its SEO strategy, and content is the best way to improve it. The more a brand posts on their social media, the more traffic they tend to generate. But sometimes, posting frequently may not result in increased traffic but it does give a chance to rank more keywords

Frequent posting about various topics by the brand on their website or blog gives visitors a chance to view different types of content. They spend more time on these portals which leads to higher on-site time, which further boosts SEO. 

Customer relationship 

Several brands depend on loyal and long term customers for their main source of revenue. And if these brands wish to retain this stream of revenue, they must establish a good relationship with their customers. This is where the quality of content plays a huge role. Content is an important part of establishing trust and building healthy relationships. 

The kind of content produced by the brand ensures repeated sales. If the content is engaging, customers are likely to purchase from the brand again.

Sets you apart from the competitors 

Having an edge over your competitors is a part of every business’s strategy. Social media content marketing can be one of these strategies because content can make your business seem special. 

The language of your content can also differentiate you from your competitor. A unique style of content can help your brand seem distinct and exclusive. 

The kind of content your brand creates can decide the customer’s preferred style. They will purchase from the brands that employ creative content on their social media. 

Cost-effective 

Another importance of content in social media is that it is one of the most cost-effective ways of digital marketing. Small businesses, that don’t have huge capital set aside for advertising, can benefit from social media content marketing. The affordability of content marketing is very attractive to brands and they invest their digital marketing budgets on the same. 

Content also ensures great Return On Investments due to its affordability. Content marketing produces 3 times more leads when compared to paid ads. 

Examples of social media content marketing 

To understand how social media content marketing is beneficial for businesses, let’s look at how brands have used content in the best way possible. 

Share A Coke 

This is a widely talked about a marketing campaign that broke the internet. This campaign originated in Australia where 100+ common names were written on coke bottles along with #shareacoke. These bottles sold fast and customers were persuaded to share their bottle on social media with the hashtag.

Everyone wanted to be a part of this trend because the campaign was well strategized. The campaign targeted those who are constantly engaging and active on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. 

This social media content marketing strategy made the campaign highly personal and engaging. The use of common names made consumers feel that it was designed just for them. It also made people feel like they should share a coke with loved ones and feel a sense of closeness with others. 

This strategy not only helped coke sell thousands of bottles, but it also improved the brand’s reputation and credibility. The campaign also portrays the importance of content in social media and how it can be marketed in the best way. The campaign continued to grow after its commencement in 2012 and is often considered by the experts as one of the best content marketing campaigns. 

TED 

Another great example of social media content marketing is TED. TED organizes global conferences and invites some of the best thinkers of our time. The reason TED is so successful is that it does not aim at boosting its SEO. TED mainly focuses on its content and has understood the importance of content marketing

They only invite highly reputed people to come and give talks on trendy matters that their followers would be interested in. These topics are diverse in nature but have a positive effect on the listeners. The organization also understood the importance of free quality content and started sharing their videos on Youtube to reach more people. Currently, TED has more than 17 million Youtube followers. 

In conclusion 

Social media content marketing is very effective if it is used correctly. Several brands have gone wrong with their content, which has hampered their business. For example, Ogilvy India suffered a backlash when they tried to market Kurl-On mattresses by showing a cartoon of Malala Yousafza falling on a mattress after being shot and then bouncing back up towards accepting an award. This led to hurting the sentiments of people since the content was extremely insensitive. 

Brands must be careful and sensitive to their image. They can reach out to a good advertising agency, who can help them strategize their campaigns in a positive light, and not evoke any negativity. By doing this, brands can enjoy the benefits of social media content marketing.

Instagram Branding

Build Your Brand With Insta : 4 Tried-and-True Instagram Branding Tips

Build Your Brand With Insta : 4 Tried-and-True Instagram Branding Tips 800 450 Admin

Followers may come and go but Instagram branding goes on forever. Instagram is no more a destination for private accounts, it’s for a whole lot more. Businesses are slowly shifting to social media branding through Instagram. Many small businesses start their company through this social networking service. 

Instagram has the highest engagement with followers of brands. It is a two-way communication model where brand followers can easily pose questions about products and services, and receive quick responses. This helps brands create personal interactions and relationships with their customers. 

Instagram Branding

It is also the most visually and aesthetically pleasing platform which allows the website to revolve around imagery. Photographers, graphic designers, artists, and models have a great opportunity to grow their businesses and creativity. 

As people move towards image-oriented content, Instagram receives 68% engagement between brands and users, while Facebook only receives 32% engagement for the same. With twice the engagement, Instagram becomes the perfect destination for digital branding

With the help of Instagram branding, companies can share their business, connect with interested users, upload pictures of their products and services, and overall increase their Return on Investment. 

The following are some tried and tested Instagram tricks and tips that will boost your brand and improve its image in the eyes of followers. 

CREATE AN EXCLUSIVE BRAND HASHTAG 

The most discussed Instagram tip is to create a hashtag that can exclusively be used by the company to share its messages and images. 95+ million posts are generated on Instagram every day and with the help of the hashtag system, the right content reaches the right people. These hashtags can be words, phrases, or titles that include the name of the brand or any brand-related lingo. 

Customers may already have a brand hashtag they use online, without the knowledge of the company. The company can either join in the same hashtag or create a new one that fits their branding needs. 

#brandname can be created by the company for Instagram branding. They can post images of their products and add the hashtag to their captions and bio. These hashtags are clickable which allows interested users to search for more products and reviews with the same tags. 

For example, Sabyasachi has effectively used hashtags on its official Instagram page. Every post has #Sabyasachi, #TheWorldOfSabyasachi as common tags, and additionally, they add #BridesOfSabyasachi or #SabyasachiJewellery based on posts of bridal lehengas and jewelry. These hashtags are easily searchable and there are more than 500k plus posts with tags related to the company. 

These hashtags help businesses categorize their posts, attract followers, increase overall engagement, reach the target audience, and strengthen their brand image. E-Commerce brands especially benefit from this Instagram trick. 

CONTENT MANAGEMENT IS THE KEY 

Instagram Branding

Aesthetics attracts the eye. It is fundamental to have a visually pleasing Instagram page otherwise no one is interested. Products generally appeal to customers when they look a certain way. It will be to the benefit of the brand if they come up with themes for their page, as it can help them market their products better. 

In order to have a cohesive page, use the Instagram trick of filters. Filters can make or break the aesthetic of brands. Using one specific filter throughout the page can enhance the brand’s appeal. 

The application of brand colors to the images posted on the page also has its benefits. Customers soon associate colors to brands, like red and blue for Pepsi. This association will trigger the customer’s memory about the brand whenever they see these colors, thereby creating a strong brand image. 

PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGNS OR CONTEST

Another great Instagram tip is to run a contest or create a promotional campaign. Promotional ads can include videos or posters that have a strong message about the brand or a cause it supports. The customers’ sentiments are targetted and they try to be a part of it by posting on their own feeds with relevant hashtags. 

Contests on Instagram are generally well-received by users. These contests may range from giveaways to “posts pictures of yourself with our product and get 10% off on your next purchase.” Brands can give the users a particular hashtag they are supposed to use and they can include this tag on their bio as well. Rules can also be added in the description so the users know how they can enter the contests. 

Several skincare brands organize contests for their followers in which social media influencers are asked to promote their products on their pages. These influencers test out the products and give reviews to their followers and persuade them to try it as well. The brand is then able to reach a larger audience who can learn more about their products and purchase them in the future. 

Everyone likes free goodies, many interested customers come flocking to these contests and try to win gifts. It also helps in boosting sales of the company’s products. This further helps the brand engage with their clients on an intimate level. 

OFFER SALES ON POSTS 

A company’s Instagram branding can become impactful if they try to include sales for their products and services. Sales help in bringing traffic to the Instagram page and the number of followers increases as well. 

The caption of the posts can include promotions and offers. Codes for availing discounts can be mentioned along with the terms and regulations. Users can visit the website that should be linked in the bio. This reduces the effort from the customers’ side. 

Instagram stories can also be used to inform people about the sale. The sale can become more exciting if a time frame is established. For example, “the sale will last only 2 hours so visit our website now.” This will create excitement amongst buyers. 

IN CONCLUSION

Instagram Branding

Instagram branding can uplift a business by creating a favorable image in the public’s eye. Companies that maintain a level of transparency with their followers have a good relationship with them and are more trustworthy and influential. Brand loyalty is soon established among product users. Their competitors in comparison, who don’t maintain an Instagram page are at a disadvantage. 

It may take a while to figure out what is the best way to market a business on Instagram but with the help of the above 4 tips, companies can create a basic framework on what their focus should be. These tips will reduce the guesswork that they may have to sit through. Receiving the required traffic on these businesses may take a while but with the right Instagram tricks, the number of followers and posts will increase. The company will then easily be able to reach its goals.
