The importance of content marketing optimisation

thought bubble

Optimising content marketing is as important as the digital strategy. Every day we read the already well-known phrase “content is king”. However, we do not always stop to understand the magnitude of that statement. Indeed, to reach our target audience today, we need to provide value, offer a proposal that highlights, and sparks interest.

As a result, we turn to the daily publishment of vast amounts of information, in all its versions (articles, videos, photos, infographics …), which do not always get the expected response from the user. This happens for a reason: the content must not only be good, but extraordinary. It must be so very bright that it can impact directly in the heart of the recipient.

Therefore it is important to develop a content strategy; to work each message, to highlight each piece of content, each element that makes it, in order to maximize its ability. This is called content optimisation, which can be achieved if we follow the following steps:

Adapt content to different devices

Some small business trends show that we are not yet really aware that there is life beyond the computer. When consuming information, 41% of these users opt for their smartphone, while 20% prefer their tablet, while only 16% use their computer. Therefore, the content must be clearly visible on any device, especially considering the usability of it.

Enrich the message with links to reference sources

One way to increase the credibility of the content is to strengthen the arguments with opinions and media data demonstrated and corroborated. Thus, our contribution gains in value; which will help you stand out from other similar pieces.

Do not forget the visual component

The image is the queen of the Internet. Not surprisingly, Marketingquery has suggested that 90% of the information we pass on to our brain is visual. 4 out of 10 users better assimilate the content text in image. So the success of infographics explains this trend. It contributes to a better assimilation of the message, and we are able to remember up to 80% of what we see, while only 20% of what we read. Therefore, we cannot pass up the opportunity to strengthen our content with images.

A video is worth a thousand words

The demand for audio-visual content by users continues its remarkable growth. The latest report from Adobe Digital Index showed an annual growth of 157% in this type of behavior. So, the videos have been established as the most demanded of the Internet content. An incentive that becomes a key for optimizing our content element.

Similarly, the existence of video helps to increase the residence time of the page, and thus the contact mark.

We must feed the need to know more

Resources like suggesting related articles, links to other posts or content created by the company, and the proposed discharge incentives are complementary content that engage the user, while allowing us to know them better, tastes, preferences, habits of behavior and why not, personal data to keep in touch.


Digital Activity

There are plugins and online options that allow specific phrases to be tweeted with the article, with one click. Thus, their natural instinct to share feeds. Users enjoy discovering and sharing content on social networks. 84% say they share content as a way to convey their commitment to certain social problems. Furthermore, for 78% share in social networks allows them to get in touch with people, promote interaction and know their interests. Also, 69% feel part of this place called world when contributing content. Ultimately, 49% shares information and ratings on products in order to contribute their personal evaluation and even move to action.


Encourage conversation and interaction with content

The Internet is an open dialogue and a free exchange of information and content medium. Therefore, it is important to give the public the tools to express themselves, discuss and share their content wherever they wish.
