<ul><li><p>Small Businesses have been historically slow in keeping up </p><p>with the latest SEO trends and strategies. Make sure your </p><p>business stays ahead of the competition with these 7 tips </p><p>for content marketing success! </p></li><li><p>Tip 1: Document Your Strategy </p><p>Creating a content marketing calendar for your brand is the </p><p>best way to ensure that your business is regularly posting </p><p>content to your site. Best of all, a well-thought out content </p><p>calendar can help hold you accountable for timely content </p><p>creation and make sure you dont fall off track. </p></li><li><p>Tip 2: Do Your Research </p><p>Coming up with ideas for new content is no easy task. Make </p><p>sure you do a fair amount of research into your brands </p><p>existing content to check out what has and has not worked </p><p>for your company in the past. Furthermore, keep close tabs </p><p>on how newly published content is performing to help you </p><p>make changes as needed to your current strategy. </p></li><li><p>Tip 3: Follow Social Trends </p><p>Keeping a close watch on the latest trending topics and the </p><p>social trends of your audience is one way to guarantee that </p><p>your content has some meaning on the web. Newsjacking is </p><p>one of the most popular techniques that helps provide </p><p>valuable content to your audience. </p></li><li><p>Tip 4: Create Your Own News </p><p>One of the most effective ways to help build a buzz around </p><p>your brand is to create your own news with a simple survey. </p><p>Providing readers with tangible statistics about your industry </p><p>topics will help earn you backlinks and build your reputation </p><p>as a thought leader in the industry. </p></li><li><p>Tip 5: Make the Most of Visual Content </p><p>Give your content some added appeal by using images to </p><p>help tell your story. Audiences are more naturally engaged </p><p>by content that has some sort of visual element, and </p><p>research has shown that adding even just one picture to </p><p>your posts can help improve reader engagement. </p></li><li><p>Tip 6: Use Videos! </p><p>78% of internet users watch videos every week, and over </p><p>half watch at least one each day. Creating a short video for </p><p>your brand will help users easily digest information and even </p><p>help conversions! </p></li><li><p>Tip 7: Recycle Outdated Content </p><p>If you dont have the time to come up with new topics on a </p><p>regular basis, look for ways to repurpose the content you </p><p>have already created. Revisiting an older, outdated piece of </p><p>content and coming up with some modern updates can help </p><p>speed up the turnaround on your blog posts. </p></li><li><p>Content marketing is one of the most valuable tools you </p><p>have in your SEO campaign. Make sure your business stays </p><p>on course and is consistently creating high-quality content </p><p>for your audience. </p></li><li><p>1.877.723.0016 </p><p>info@clearskyseo.com </p><p>1013 E Carson St. Pittsburgh, PA 15203 </p><p>www.clearskyseo.com </p></li></ul>
