Top 8 Content Distribution Ideas to Meet Your Brand’s Goals in 2019

Content Distribution Ideas

You are doing everything right, but still, your content is not having the impact you had envisioned. There is a massive amount of content- articles, videos, photos, etc posted on the Internet and social media every second. That is a lot of noise and you need to be heard above the din to be effective. 

Consider this: according to BuzzSumo’s Content Trends Report 2018, a majority of the content gets zero backlinks. Only authoritative research gets more links over time. An analysis of 100 million posts published in 2017 revealed that social sharing has decreased by half since 2015.  

What’s more, here are the number of blogs posted at the time of writing this article. The screenshot is taken from Worldometers.info and gives you a fair idea of the huge amount of content that is daily generated on the internet and the competition you are dealing with.

While creating quality content still matters, it will not get you the required traction without proper distribution. So, if your content marketing is not delivering on its promise – the reason may be because you are not distributing your content effectively. 

Just posting doesn’t make your content effective no matter how well written and informative it may be. What matters is the exposure it gets and this is only possible if you have a good content distribution strategy in place.  

In this article, we have discussed some content distribution ideas which can help you to create an effective plan for content distribution for your business.  Read More

The 6-Step Digital Marketing Routine For Busy Entrepreneurs

Digital Marketing Routine For Busy Entrepreneurs

The most successful entrepreneurs follow a set routine every single day. Sounds ludicrous, right?

You’ve probably seen advertisements all over the place (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, the WWW) that talks about people working from home for just an hour a day making $100,000 or more.

Are those guys following a routine every single day?

A-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y!

Well, at least the ones that are making money are — the successful ones.

So, what are the successful entrepreneurs doing that you aren’t?

And what can you do to be successful like them?

For starters, you need to create a routine that works. One that keeps you focused and pushes you to be successful.

So, we’ve looked at several routines from successful digital marketers and we’ve come up with a 6-step approach that we feel will keep you moving in the right direction.

Staying Small to Make it Big: How to Be a Micro-Influencer

An influencer is to Instagram, as fish is to water; nowadays, celebrities and marketers alike live and thrive on the photo-sharing social media platform better than any other place online. 

And this really comes to no surprise. Over the years, Instagram has become home to a section of individuals who’ve figured out how to monetize content, attracting big brand and small businesses, and virtually everything and everyone in between.

How to Be a Micro-Influencer

In fact, recent statistics show that the buying decision of as much as 70% of millennial consumers is affected by the recommendations of their peers. The same survey shows that 30% of consumers across different age segments are more likely to purchase products recommended by non-celebrity bloggers because they feel they can relate more to these influencers than their more popular counterparts.

The numbers really do say it all: the Instagram influencer game used to be dominated by those with high follower counts, but such doesn’t seem to be the case these days. People are starting to turn to their peers for opinions, seeking insight and reviews from influencers who are low-key enough to be real and relatable.

These people, in social media speak, are micro-influencers.
