Why Use Content Marketing?

If you’re still wondering, most of our traffic comes from SEO (specifically 90% Google & 10% Bing), Pinterest, and Instagram.
Here are the most important reasons we love using content marketing.
Content Marketing Will Increase Your Visibility
Offering more and varied types of content increases the chances that Google or another search engine will decide your information is relevant to a customer’s search and show your material in the search results.
- Situation: Today Google is serving more variety in their search results including short videos clips, audio files, creative news stories, and PDFs if they’re relevant.
- Opportunity: Repackage your content to take advantage of the lack of content in those spaces.
Content Marketing Will Help You Build Authority
- Situation: Spreading your expertise around the web and getting backlinks from others will expose your content to more people. When this happens, it builds authority and helps with your search engine rankings.
- Opportunity: Backlinks are the essence of SEO in terms of getting higher rankings. Additionally, they’re great sources of targeted, direct traffic that isn’t dependent on search engine rankings.
Content Marketing Will Help You Build Relationships
- Situation: Getting traffic to your site is a good start, but starting a relationship with your visitors is even better.
- Opportunity: You can repackage your content into other forms such as a creative blog post, audio file, or eBook. The new content can be offered as a free download, free email course, or a premium product.
Content Marketing Allows for More Site Updates
- Situation: Google has an option to show websites based on its update time. If you’re producing content on a regular basis then people looking for information updated within a period of days, hours, weeks, etc. will find you.
- Opportunity: Use the latest news in your niche to take advantage of people using the time option in Google.
Never stop creating new content and remember to repackage your old content. Content will forever be king. Please read our Ultimate List of Content Marketing Strategies for more content marketing examples and tips.
