Many organizations often overlook their content production strategy, and now more than ever it’s going to cost them. Keyword-focused content reigns king in SEO and Google now gives a major preference to the freshest content. A content creation strategy that supports digital marketing initiatives is critical. There are four major content types to create a steady stream of keyword rich content.
- Press Releases. Timely and newsworthy press releases should be keyword-optimized, posted on your website and distributed on newswire sites for maximum distribution.
- Marketing Automation Content. By leveraging landing pages you can create a SEO-friendly page that targets specific areas, customers and products.
- Social Media. Nearly all social media content contributes to your website’s SEO. Blog articles and white papers in particular are excellent ways to frequently bring new visitors to your website and maintain your site’s place on the first page of Google.
- User-Generated Content. Comments, reviews and feedback only reinforce optimized keywords and product descriptions. Encourage feedback on your website; add value to the customer experience and increase conversion and engagement.
