Blog Posts That Get 1000 Visits or More Target 76 Keywords
Blogging is a pain. Not because the content is hard to write (worse case you can just hire a writer or agency), but due to the fact that no one can guarantee that your blog post gets read or not. Just think about it… you spend all this time writing content, but no one can guarantee that it will be read.
Why I care: When you work with purpose, and a plan you tend to get results that you can build upon. Mainly because you've implemented a strategy that you can analyze, improve upon and repeat. This is where doing your keyword research comes into play when working on your content marketing strategy.
Keyword research will help drive the content that you focus on and share with the target audience. Understanding what people are searching for is understanding the needs of your potential customers. Anticipating the search and providing the content, answers, and or solutions to their inquiry. That is where you as a business can start building your authority and credibility with prospects.
Why Content Differentiation Dictates Success (+ How to Find Yours)
Content differentiation forces you to focus on connecting with your audience instead of promoting products/services from a slightly different angle.
Putting more of a focus on your audience than your offering(s).
Why I care: At the end of the day sales come from resonating with the audience. Without their need, there are no products or services to provide a solution for.
Sticking with the concept of what started their search for answers and solutions is key to identifying not just your audience but what separates you from your competitors.
