Here is a list of things to do to improve your Content Marketing strategy:

  1. Start blogging + sharing posts with Buffer/HootSuite
    – make sure to link back to your website as much as possible to improve SEO results
    – budget either time or money into your marketing strategy
    – hire a writer and/or go to if you don’t have the time to write your own content
  2. Focus on long-tail keywords
    – make sure your efforts are ranking for the terms that are most meaningful to your brand and your customers
    – do a bit of basic research and then build a list of relevant keywords you will target through your content
  3. Automate/ Schedule your social media posting

    – don’t just talk, show visual examples
  5. Generate a List of Potential Topics – find a competitor and repurpose or improve their content
  6. Create an Outline – Intro > Illustration > Examples > Opinion > Conclusion
  7. Create a Conversation – use the words “you” and “I”
