Content marketing and link building are some of the most effective forms of marketing in today’s online landscape. Many of the top organizations, including Cisco Systems and Microsoft, employ these strategies and tactics to draw traffic – and customers – to their websites.
What is content marketing? What is link building? How do these work to bring people to your site to invest in your product or service?
Here are some of the basics about content marketing and link building as well as how Digital PR uses them to improve your SEO (search engine optimization) ranking.
Content marketing focuses on creating and distributing relevant, valuable, and consistent content for your target audience online.
While each content marketing strategy will differ depending on the company and audience, it will usually include some combination of website content, blogs, infographics, and link building.
Your website should be more than just a digital “address” with little more than some basic information about your company. Compelling website content draws potential customers to your website. Even if you don’t do any business online, increasing website traffic will increase foot traffic to your storefront.
Not only does excellent website content draw customers directly, but if you offer interesting, informative content, other websites may link to it. Potential customers may click on that link and end up on your website. More importantly, link building helps build your website’s credibility and authority, which is helpful to boost rankings on Google and other search engines.
Blogs are another type of website content that can draw a large audience. When you provide useful information to your target demographic, you can rank for long-tail keywords and drive organic traffic to your website who are looking for information or guides related to your core services and products. Even if you attract people who might not be ready to move forward with your product or service yet, they will think of you first when they are ready.
Well-written, reputable blogs also contribute significantly to link building. When other websites deem your blog to be authoritative, they will link to it. Imagine how many potential customers a monthly or weekly blog could bring to your website.
Have overlapping or duplicate blog topics? Digital PR can also assist with conducting a blog audit and refreshing and combining existing blog posts to create optimized, evergreen content that will stay relevant over a long period of time.
Don’t feel comfortable writing a blog yourself? Or simply don’t have the time? Let Digital PR help.
Excellent infographics not only improve your website content, but you can also use them for social media marketing. One thing to keep in mind is infographics must be relevant, accurate, eye-catching, and contain actionable takeaways.
While a picture is worth a thousand words, infographics should be short and to the point.
