Sumo Media approaches content marketing from the outset, if we are developing a website. The brand is so important and how the business wants to be recognized. Who is the target market and what do they expect from a brand of the industry in question? At Sumo Media, while we are keyword researching for the business essential targeting focus we are checking off these factors. Eg, How does a keyword typed by the businesses target avatar relate to the business factors, such as: location, target age, target income, target purchasing potential, research traffic identification and then once we have our set of elite keywords for the project we can then focus on consideration of an over-arching brand them for the business, how that would likely impact the aformentioned factors and how to appeal more to those factors. As a perfect example of this in play is Sumo Media the brand itself; The sumo represents "big", the catch phrase is "Go Big" which business owners can identify with since they want to make more money and it also impacts our business target since we are big on development so for our customers to take full advantage of us they need to spend a bit. It all starts there and the products and services that may branch out can latch onto that brand and create complimentary promotions & information.
Business owners often want to save a little and tackle some marketing content themselves. Don't do this, you could be wasting your time completely. Its not as simple as writing a blog and throwing it up on your website. It's actually quite complex and best managed from a grass roots perspective with a long term plan. Remember, google marketing is super competitive and most of page one content is there because a professional content marketer made that happen. You are likely to be competing with them. Get on-going support if you can. Another vastly popular tool for budding content marketers is Facebook boosting. While it might work, it also might be way more cost effective to market your content with a professional Facebook account and reap far better returns as well by honing those conversions more affectively. Something that you can most certainly always do, is to write blogs, since you know more about your business than anyone else and if you aren't shy, getting your personality and profile in the mix wouldn't hurt either; just make sure you get advice from your SEO tech on what to write about every week.
