In marketing, several stuffs or gear are often considered necessary, without which one may not get encouraging results.
Below is a list of important traits and attributes that aids effective content marketing.
- Uniqueness of Content
Most proficient and skilled digital marketing executives buys into the idea that promotional contents cannot be 100% exclusive. Owing to the gross and massive number of active optimised contents on the internet, and those being developed on a daily basis.
I truly do concur to the idea that promotional contents cannot be 100% unique and special, nevertheless, your contents should be at least 70 to 80 percent unique. Even machines are not 100% efficient. Try as much as possible to emulate the culture of developing exceptional articles, blog posts and press releases. Even so, there are related contents on the same topic on the world wide web.
Major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yandex are never tired of penalizing your site and its contents on a daily basis; If the contents found therein are spam contents. And that is undoubtedly unhealthy for your business or brand, all the same; this can pose a difficult challenge to your online reputation and standing.
- Keep It Simple and Comprehensive
This is one trait, an effective marketable content should always include. Simplicity and clarity is a must if a content must be marketable to a pre-assumed audience. As a matter of fact, it is a total waste of time and energy to develop and create indecipherable contents for a marketing course. Neither is it profitable to create contents that are not direct and specific. No one would be able to read it, not to talk more of understanding the message you intend to convey.
Be simple and subtle, express your marketing prowess and professionalism through your content. Talk passionately about your mission, vision and intention through the write-up; and simultaneously try to persuade your audience into buying into your idea. Another way to do it better is by the use of scale of preference in content development line-up sheet. Note down the content title you intend to work on, with regards to their importance and urgency; then progressively tackle each topic one after the other keeping in mind the rules.
- Entice your Audience with Juicy contents
Sometimes, it is often better to come-up with a solution to the problems of many. Marketable contents should always include this quality, moreover, we all encounter several kinds of challenges on a daily basis and seek answers and solutions out of it.
Your contents may also be classified as being marketable or merchantable if it has powers to heal the problems and sicknesses of its audience. It may be a written to educate people on one thing or the other, or perhaps designed as a recipe to doing various kinds of things ceteris paribus.
