Episode 10: Bulk Content Creation

How to Create Massive Amounts of Content 10x Faster So You can Focus on Marketing

It is not uncommon to see on the internet corporate blogs that are no longer powered for months. In question, most often: the lack of time. Creating content is indeed a particularly time-consuming task: you have to find an article subject, research the issue, write the content, find an illustration, optimize it for SEO, and put it online. Cumulative, all these steps easily take several hours and make the creation of content very tedious. To make your site live and attract audiences, you need to create content. How can you create more content simply and effectively, and still focus on marketing you say? Nothing simpler, here’s how to do so.

Have a list of topics always ready and available

Knowing what to write is a recurring problem for anyone who feeds a business blog. Often, we swarm of ideas the first months, but over time, it seems to have gone around the subject, and we find ourselves faced with a big failure of inspiration. Having a list of blog post topics at your fingertips means you do not have to worry about unnecessary questions and start writing immediately after you’ve decided: just pick an article idea from the list to get started. If you operate with editorial planning, this list will also allow you to feed it very easily. Just put a date in front of each idea to know what to write and when. By evacuating these two questions, you will then be much more effective.

Find out what to say in your article

Finding an article topic is a good start, but knowing what to say on this topic is another problem! Do you not have time to dig your head? Here are two ideas that will allow you to write an article plan and identify smart things to say about a topic at great V speed. The simplest solution is to have others work for you by asking your question on an expert forum. If you choose one that has a lot of active members in a few hours, you should get some tips for writing your article. This method is, however, to use in moderation (or with many different nicks!) To avoid being spotted by other members. It works particularly well in American forums, where the experts themselves are often asked to be questioned to show that they are pros.

Optimize the drafting process

Well, at this point you have an article topic and things to talk about. All you have to do is tap on your computer keyboard to see your article take shape. Again, some simple tips will save you time. In addition, make use of content templates. It’s difficult to write content when you do not know what its final version should look like. This is why it is important to draft upstream a precise editorial charter, which frames the process and even includes, if possible, content templates to use for your blog. For example, you can juggle 2 or 3 templates that correspond to different article formats (lists, “How to,” etc.) and guide your approach.

Fine-tune the content after writing

Did you put the endpoint on your first throw? Perfect! You will now be able to refine everything in efficient mode, that is to say:

Reworking the form

No need to write Moliere, the key is to make you understand. Moreover, a simple and casual tone is easier and more pleasant to read than a doctoral tone. During the proofreading of your article, you can be satisfied with:

  • Correct slightly flawed formulations and spelling mistakes,
  • Find synonyms to avoid possible repetitions (think to use Google).
  • It should not take you more than 5 minutes for short articles, a maximum of fifteen for long ones.

Episode 9: Content Creation

Why Content Creation is King, Traffic is Queen and Your Audience is God

Content is the most important thing on a website, it is undoubtedly the “hook” that attracts visitors to it, and that thanks to the qualification obtained by that content that you offer, and if it is considered “Quality Content” in that same degree those visitors will perceive and qualify your products or services as “Quality Products or Services”. Having important traffic on your website is essential since it means that you will be receiving a large number of visits from the search results of users. Generating more traffic to a website is one of the key objectives for all online marketing professionals.

Audience, on the other hand, is a demographic and behavioral cut of a group of people that the company chooses as future clients of your product or service. It is for them that marketing actions will be focused. With some specific variations in certain cases, the idea of ​​the target audience is similar to the one referred to by terms such as target, target market or target market.

Why content is king

It is the best way to connect with your consumers

The constant creation of content allows you to generate engagement with your consumers, who will know that you are giving them new things every day. In addition, a web page that has not been updated in a long time causes a terrible impression, so it is a win-win situation because as you create valuable content, you will have the opportunity to update your website (or your blog section) and always have cool things to show.

This is how people find you

If you want to be well positioned in search engines, content is your friend. There are several parameters that Google uses to decide how relevant you are in certain searches, and increasingly the content is a vital factor to improve your ranking. The original content and quality allows you to generate good search engine positioning, which is also a sustainable positioning over time. In fact, the higher the quality of your content, organically you will get a better ranking (Google, Bing, Alexa, etc.) because more people will visit you or refer to your content from their websites, blogs or social networks.

Gives meaning to your email marketing strategy

It may seem obvious, but we will say it anyway: without good content, doing an e-mail marketing campaign is uphill. Nobody wants to receive an e-mail in their email saying: “Buy, buy, buy!”, But if that e-mail says: “Look at all these nice and useful things for your life. Ah! By the way, we also have this product that goes with your lifestyle; maybe you want it “, then it is much more possible that there are clicks to your website, and that there are conversions.

Why traffic is queen

The most important point about website traffic is that the greater the number of web visitors, the better is the chance of making sales. As more and more people visit your website, there are chances of converting your promotional efforts into actual sales made. Another important point is that even if the sales are not made with the first visit of any particular web visitor your website gets, you can expect future sales. Future sales are dependent on the number of visits you get today. Also, you can collect information about the visitors of your website and as a result can launch a comprehensive email marketing campaign afterward. If your website gets lots of traffic, you can earn a lot by placing the links of the other websites on your website. This is another important way of making money through website traffic generation.

Why audience is god

What’s more important, traffic or conversions? If уоu send me 50k реорlе frоm a сlаѕѕіс tractor rераіr wеbѕіtе and 500 frоm a рrоmіnеnt mаrkеtіng ѕіtе, which оnе іѕ gоіng to bе bеttеr fоr mу buѕіnеѕѕ? Unless уоu’rе іn the раgеvіеw buѕіnеѕѕ, whаt you ѕhоuld fіrѕt and fоrеmоѕt саrе аbоut іѕ соnvеrѕіоnѕ. Conversions take place when targeted traffic meets relevant offer. It all starts with knowing who is your audience and what they need or want.

If уоu wаnt tо іnсrеаѕе соnvеrѕіоnѕ, уоu hаvе tо fіgurе оut whо еxасtlу is your primary audience, whаt they want, what matters tо them аnd whаt are thе sources оf frісtіоn fоr them. If you say your audience is “pretty much everybody” or “anyone interested in my services,” you don’t have much of a chance to boost conversions.

As simple and complex as making an attractive subject, it is enough for the user to read your email and with it the information you want to offer. The main factors that you promote when developing a proper email marketing campaign are the following:

How to Segment Your list to Create Massive Community Engagement

Surely you’ve heard about segmenting your subscriber list is vital to your email marketing strategy. The question is: How do you segment your list? Below are ways to do so:

Geography

Knowing where your contacts live can be very powerful information. For example, if your business is a physical store, it does not make much sense to send offers to people who do not reside in your city. Or if you have a franchise, it is better to segment your lists by zip code. This way, you will make sure that you are not trespassing on another person’s territory, or send advertising to a region where your organization still does not offer any kind of service.

Age

Anyone of any age can access the Internet today. Which means you can send an email to a college student, a retiree, or even a small child. Segment by age is very useful to eliminate those people who are not among your target audience or to adjust the type of message you want to convey.

Gender

Just as you communicate differently with a retiree than with a college student, you can also adjust your words and offers according to the gender of your recipients. If you hаvе a wide rаngе of products, уоu can ѕеgmеnt уоur list in thіѕ wау аnd reinforce it with other demographic аnd рѕусhоgrарhіс details аѕ wеll.

Type of organization

Are your customers franchises? Non-profit organizations? E-commerce? SMEs? All of them have different needs, and as such, the contents of your emails must be different.

Industry

If you are selling your products or services to other businesses, these may belong to different industries. Knowing the industry of your potential clients will allow you to add another level of personalization to your email marketing campaigns.

Frequency of purchase

Segment your email list based on how often someone makes a purchase. Not only can you try to increase this frequency, but you can also reward frequent buyers with an invitation to your loyalty program.

Customers who refer other customers

Consider creating a segment on your email list with customers who repeatedly refer other customers to your business. These are the main defenders of your brand and should receive emails with information about loyalty programs, discounts for referring a friend, and even samples of new products on which you want to receive feedback.

All these segmentation options have a common goal, to adapt your messages according to the type of target customer you want to reach. This way your email marketing campaigns will be much more effective, and your effort will have been worth it.

Welcome emails should begin with a warm introduction that reflects the personality of your company.

You can write something simple like, “Welcome to our email list” or “Thank you for signing up to receive our emails.” There is no right or wrong way to welcome new guests; make sure it is conversational and adapts to the voice of your company.

Advantages of your email list

After giving a welcome note, it continues to reinforce a subscriber’s decision to subscribe to your emails.

For example, you can do an excellent job explaining the benefits of registering in your emails, showing the subscription benefits in digestible cartoons.

Discount

By offering a discount or some gift, you create goodwill between your company and your new subscribers. So, after offering the advantages of subscribing to your list, you can tempt them to make purchases.

Clear CTA

Each welcome email should have a clear call to action. Thе соlоr muѕt dіѕtіnguіѕh the CTA, bесаuѕе thе buttоn, іnѕtеаd of hуреrlіnkеd tеxt, mаkеѕ іt рrеvаlеnt. Alѕо, уоu must соnvеу urgеnсу. Thе wоrdѕ “Buу nоw” іnѕріrе rесіріеntѕ tо асt іmmеdіаtеlу.

Eye-catching images of the product or service

When you welcome your new contacts, it is good to put your product or service in front and the center. After all, your new subscriber asked you to know more about your business or product when you subscribe. Give them what they want. Use images to show your products in the most striking way possible as part of the structure of your welcome email.

If it’s a service-based business or a non-profit organization, try to use attractive images or evoke emotions that relate to your business. Highlight a successful and happy customer; include a photo of your team or volunteers (Who does not like a warm welcome?). Show before and after images, or use clean, flat, simple and complementary color graphics.

Conclusion

Then, consider some of the above formulas to increase engagement as you develop the relationship. That way, you will you able to generate new leads. However, remember that new user relationships often start with a professional homepage that excited them with their offer or brand in the first place.

Episode 5: Lead Capture

How to Set Up Your Funnel & Website for 10x More Conversions Online

There are a few key things to consider when creating a lead capture page. You shouldn’t use your company or yourself when creating a lead capture page. It is created for you to collect information that builds your list. You want to capture their phone number, email, and name so that the information is added to your autoresponder list. If you’re not using an autoresponder, you need to get one because you an autoresponder helps your business in numerous ways. Everyone should use one to maximize his or her conversion rate. That’s a whole other article in itself.

Always keep in mind when creating a lead capture page that you are providing a solution to your visitor’s problem. You want to write your lead capture from your visitor’s perspective. Ask yourself, “If I saw this, would I offer up my info for what’s inside?” Remember, they are looking for a solution to their problem. They need to know that by providing their information they will receive your solution. There are 5 components to every impressive lead capture page. They have been tried and tested and provide your best chance at getting the lead.

Pre-Headline

Start your lead capture page with a question that is in direct line with the actual headline. This is an effective way to grab your visitor’s attention.

Headline

The headline is what keeps your visitor on the page by creating curiosity. It is very important to have something appealing. It doesn’t have to be long. You just want to present a problem to them that you have a solution for. Remember, they get that solution when they opt-in to your lead capture page. Usually, the famous “How to” is always a splendid way to start your headline. Your visitor will know exactly what they will get from filling out the form.

Example:

“You’re About To Learn “How To”…” (Tell them exactly what they are going to get… people need direction)

Body (this is used if you are creating a longer lead capture page)

It basically summarizes what some, not all, of the things they will receive on the other side of the lead capture page. It lets them know the benefits they will receive for providing their information to you.

Example:

Inside you will learn…

  • Benefit 1
  • Benefit 2
  • How to use “Benefit 3?
  • How to use “Benefit 4?

You want your body to look nice and clean. Use a slighter font, then your headline and put the benefits in a bulleted form. You don’t want to steal attention away from the main headline. Keep it simple.

Capture Form (Opt-in Box)

Remind your visitors of the benefits they will receive from you after they fill out the capture form. It is an absolute must to ask for a valid email address and first name. Asking for too much information, like phone number or address, will lead to a lower conversion rate. Notify them that they need to use a valid email address because that is where their information will be sent.

Call to Action

The call to action should lure the reader to take direct action, such as requesting additional information. Use something catchy like “Get FREE Instant Access” or “Yes! I Want The FREE Secrets Now!” It is of utmost importance to have a strong call to action. The visitor needs to make an immediate decision. Make it simple and direct. Tell them what to do to receive what you are offering.

Example:

By simply filling your name and email address into this form, you will get Immediate Access to… XYZ.

A privacy statement should be at the end of your lead capture page. You want to let the person know that they are not going to be spammed and that their personal information will not be sold or rented. This allows you to build trust while also presenting your professionalism.

You now have the tools to create an explosive lead capture page. Apply this knowledge to get dynamic results for capturing your visitor’s information. This will allow you to brand yourself as a leader by providing them with valuable information until they buy from you.
