9954 Visitors in just 7 Days. How one piece of EPIC Content transformed our site traffic

Back in March, we were having a problem with our Site’s Traffic numbers. They just weren’t growing as fast we wanted. This is a typical problem faced by most business owners or site admins and one that’s widely covered online. For reference, a quick search on Google on how to boost your site’s traffic will give you over 4.100,000 results. 4 Million search results (!) with no way to know which ones actually work and which ones are going to end up a colossal waste of time and money.

Since we knew that we had to do something really drastic to kick it up a notch (and without breaking the bank in the process),  we didn’t rely on the traditional approach of advertising or waiting for traditional SEO to take effect.

We decided to turn to Content, but with a twist. And to keep things interesting, threw ourselves a challenge to get 5,000 unique visitors to the piece of content we develop and to get that number within 7 days of it’s publishing. The content asset we created was truly something  special and after the 7 day deadline was up, we found that we had not only met our own target but exceeded it twice over with lots of good links to boot! Most amazing of all, the content asset became an evergreen one and continues to send amazing traffic and links our way.

Understanding the Buyer’s Journey in B2B Marketing: The Key to Creating Great Content

The presence of content marketing in the daily life of a consumer has increased drastically in recent years. In fact, 76% of B2C marketers and 88% of B2B marketers implement content strategy into their marketing mix, according to the Content Marketing Institute. However, while many businesses are making use of content marketing, it does not necessarily mean that they are successful at it.

In order to implement an effective content marketing campaign that amplifies your content, it is essential that you create content for each stage of the buyer’s journey. A buyer goes through 3 different stages (awareness, consideration, and decision) before making a purchase. By tailoring your content to potential buyers in each stage of the journey, you are more likely to turn leads for your business into repeat customers.

What is Content Marketing Really About?

In its simplest form, content marketing is the creation and distribution of content. However, it’s really much more than that. In order for content to truly do its job (i.e. “drive profitable customer action”), it needs to be relevant to the buyer that it is intended for. Essentially, a successful content marketing campaign is one that provides value to a specific target.

So how do you make sure your content is relevant for your target audience? Enter the three stages of the buyer’s journey!

The Awareness Stage

When potential buyers are in the awareness stage, they have just identified an issue or need. In order to engage with buyers in this first stage, your content should bring awareness to a specific problem before aligning this problem with various business-specific issues.

To help the customers better understand this issue or need, it’s important to stick to contentthat is educational and can provide further insight. This is not the time to introduce your product – that comes later. For now, the best way to provide value to buyers in the awareness stage is by demonstrating your knowledge on what their pain points are.

Ever wondered what are the most asked questions on Google?

Being marketers, don’t we constantly seek to leverage the data in our possession to attract traffic, generate leads and drive sales volumes?

I tried to do something similar with the 1.6 Billion Keywords we had in our database at Mondovo, and the results surprised me, to say the least.

most asked questions on Google

One fine day—driven by curiosity—I just slacked our data scientist and asked if he could get me a list of the top asked questions on Google—that is, all those keywords that begin with Why, What, How, When, Do, Does, Is, Are, Was, Has, Can, Shall, Will, etc. (You get my point.)

Minutes later, our data science guy replied. And to my utter surprise, I found myself staring at over a million question keywords. Read More
