7 Tips on Rocking Holiday Content Marketing

Holiday Content Marketing

The holiday season is approaching and so are your chances for a fresh marketing idea. People love holiday shopping, but they are also very demanding and challenging when they do their picks. With that in mind, your task as a content marketer is to create a rocking strategy, one that reduces the holiday stressors and make people fall in love in your offers.

‘’Take a step back to smell the pine that comes with the holiday season, but only for a minute. Once you are done, it is time to do the hard work. Tie up the loose ends, prepare for the New Year, and manage your holiday campaigns. To achieve it, work on your content strategy.’’ – says Rebecca Eagle, a content expert at EssayOnTime.

So, if you were focusing all of your content efforts on a single event or made them general in order to use the same throughout the year, take a step back to look at the bigger picture. Holidays are a critical window of opportunities for online businesses. The consumers’ shopping habits are significantly increased and active at this period, especially after the Internet opened up the chances of being able to shop from the commodity of one’s home. Frequent holiday weekend purchases of one-third of shippers were found to be driven by promotions. With that in mind, your content strategy is now the fiercest tool you have to attract customers, and the holiday season is your top period to boost sales.

To help you with this, we came up with seven amazing content marketing ideas that will help you rock this holiday season and make more sales than ever.

5 Engaging Types of Video Content that People Love to Watch

Video Content

People love Internet videos – it’s gotten to the point where a full 85% of people in the United States watch videos online at least a few times during the average week. Videos are naturally compelling and engaging and, thanks to the use of relevant visuals, are an opportunity to convey even complicated topics in the most simplistic way possible – all of which are major reasons why people can’t get enough of them.

But using video content is less important than the type of content you use.  Different formats bring their own unique advantages to the table, and by varying up your content you stand the best chance at really resonating with your target audience. If you really want to increase engagement, improve conversion rates and increase social shares, there are a few key types you need to be aware of.

A Step-By-Step Guide to Developing Content That Works

content marketing

It’s great you’ve decided to engage in content marketing.

The content you create is key to your audience’s hearts and purses. Some realize it. Others suffer. 60% of b2b marketers create at least one piece of content every day. 

According to Aberdeen, YOY growth in traffic for content marketing leaders is almost 800% higher compared to followers. 

That’s the reason why it’s so important to have a rock-solid content strategy. 

However, it can be tedious and overwhelming. There are so many things to figure out ranging from what kind of content to write, its frequency, to decide on setting up a new blog or hosting the content on a channel like Medium. 

What if I gave you the step by step method to get the content wheels turning?

But prior to starting, keep in mind that content is powerful. The kind of content you write holds the ability to draw specific types of people. If your content isn’t aligned with the service or product you offer, conversions would be dismal. 

The right content marketing strategy takes the guesswork out of content. It details out steps to research and creates engaging content that’s valuable to your audience.

Primarily it should aim at solving problems. The first thing that comes to mind when you think about content is a bunch of words. However,  it can be textual, audio or video content. Such content is very effective at generating leads day in and out.

How to Create Engaging Content in the “Boring” Industries

engaging content

One of the strategies that you can implement when preparing a marketing strategy is content marketing. Many marketers are stuck on the phase of developing an editorial plan because they cannot come up with any topic that wouldn’t bore the readers to death.

This article gives you a way out of this situation.

What are the Boring Industries?

First things first, let’s define what boring industries are. Accounting, insurance, banking, and law almost certainly fall under this category. Plumbing, roofing, real estate and many others do as well. 

In fact, most industries can be called boring because the content they can produce is not newsworthy. What are the interesting industries then? Eco-friendly shopping bags or hipster shoes? They’re not interesting, they’re trendy. 

If you continue to describe industries as interesting and boring, think of crab fishing. It is an industry, where lots of bearded men sail the sea in gloomy weather and perform a series of boring and repetitive tasks to get some crabs out the water and sell them. Yet it has its own Discovery Channel documentary that millions of people enjoyed. 

It is not about the industry itself. Rather, it is about your ability to show the most interesting things in the industry. If the oil industry could do it, as a case study in Forbes suggests, you can do it too.

Content Marketing: Use a Robot to Create Your Content

Robot to Create Content

Commonly, when people think of robots, they imagine large pieces of machinery constructing cars or appliances on an assembly line. This may be true, but automation has slowly worked its way into every industry. Now we have little robots in our pockets that have the ability to handle a wide range of tasks usually facilitated by humans. The fear of robots taking our jobs is a concern most people have, but can bots really replace people who generate content?

4 Reasons Why No One Is Reading Your Content?

Reading your content

A study conducted by DejanSEO found that four in five people skip over content just to read the relevant sections which interested them. That’s a significant percentage of people that barely skim over your written content.  

We now live in an era where most readers like yourself are lazy.  

Pure simple fact. 

We want the answers upfront to our query. If we want an answer to something, our instinctive nature tells us to hop onto Google and ask Google the question. 

We then get presented with a whole string of search results but what really matters is the first top 3 results. Let’s say we click on the first one… and begin by reading the title and then the first paragraph. If the answer is within the title, then great! My search query has been answered and I don’t need to read the rest of your content. But on the other hand, if it’s not there then I’ll be (somewhat) forced to read further just to gauge out the answer. And it could be daunting.  

The truth is, most authors don’t know how to write for their website. They focus mainly on writing for the search engines and what they fail to realize is the fact that they should be writing for humans. Yes. Both you and I are regular consumers of content, on a daily basis.  

The amount of strain content causes for the average human soul is horrendous. That’s if we can’t find the answer within your content. So why should we stay on and read your content if it’s not interesting… at all?
