    One strategy I use is to break up your main content and turn it into smaller chunks of micro-content.

    Share these smaller chunks on social media, so they act as teaser-content that pulls people to your articles.

    i would start by first creating an ideal customer avatar this includes what channels/websites he/she spends the most time on, what type of info he/she is interested in, so you can get a clear picture of who you are selling to, know what kind of content to create to keep him engaged and where to promote it. After you have a website and regular posts you can use various those channels to drive traffic to your posts and website.

    I would suggest something like this.

    1. Identify your target market. Take some time and be VERY SPECIFIC.

    2. Identify your competition. Look at popular websites and articles and content that are selling things to your target market.

    3. Write down a content marketing plan. Have a weekly checklist, such as:

    - Publish 2 videos on YouTube
    - Write one guest post
    - Publish 2 podcasts
    - Leave 3 comments on relevant forums
    - Connect with 5 influencers on social media
    - Publish 1 post on your blog

    This is just an example to get you thinking. I hope it helps.

    Helpful substance ought to be at the center of your advertising

    Conventional advertising is ending up less and less viable continuously; as a ground breaking advertiser, you know there must be a superior way.

    Enter content advertising.

    Content advertising is a vital promoting approach concentrated on making and dispersing important, applicable, and steady substance to draw in and hold a plainly characterized group of onlookers -- and, at last, to drive productive client activity.

    Rather than pitching your items or administrations, you are giving genuinely significant and valuable substance to your prospects and clients to enable them to unravel their issues.

    Content promoting is utilized by driving brands

    Our yearly research demonstrates most by far of advertisers are utilizing content showcasing. Truth be told, it is utilized by numerous unmistakable associations on the planet, including P&G, Microsoft, Cisco Systems, and John Deere. It's additionally created and executed by independent companies and one-individual shops the world over. Why? Since it works.

    Content Marketing is used to grow the presence of a company across followers and platforms. The company places an Ad to invite the audience that sees it to take an objective action.
    The company may be a small business (up to 200 employees), medium to large business (200+ employees), educational institution (school and universities).

    There is two ways to promote content:
    1.- Create Sponsored Content Campaigns (video Ads, message Ads, text Ads)
    2.- Use Direct Sponsored Content (personalize and test Ads).

  • Rajeev,

    • A content marketing strategy is your action plan for publishing multimedia materials; and
    -- Your primary goal is to generate your desired response from your ideal audience.

    So with that comes these fundamental to-dos:

    1. Identify your target audience.
    2. Create a list of third party platforms where many of them frequently hang out.
    3. Zone in on platforms that are most relevant to your brand, content, niches and offers.
    4. Go to those platforms and create a list of the following:

    • Most viewed or downloaded or installed up-to-date media materials or apps or tools;
    • Freshest posts with lots of shares and meaningful comments; and
    • Hottest threads with active conversations ...

    5. Zone in on those that are most relevant to your brand, freshest content posts and latest offers.
    6. Do niche market research, use keyword research and competitor analytics tools to generate ideas for your sales funnel development and on-site / off-site publishing campaigns that:

    • Can grab the attention of your target audience;
    • Can entice them to take a closer look at the rest of your stuff;
    • Can make them want more from you, to a point where they'll subscribe to your social media pages and channels, join and participate in your community, download your apps and other media materials, leave their contact details to join your exclusive mailing list and so on; and
    • Can compell them to engage with your content, share your stuff to their peers and networks, sign up as your affiliates, buy your offers and all the other good things that they can do for your brand ...

    7. Track your results and improve what you're doing by enhancing what's really working well for you and immediately dropping those that aren't ...

    Hope this helps!

    It's different for every person. But depending on which platform you use varies. If your blogging then I would create, share on social media, and email to a list. If your on youtube then I would seo optimize and share on social media. If your on Facebook then I would do paid like campaigns, post consistently and boost, or click to website ads.

    What you produce content on is as important as how you go about covering it or promoting it...

    In fact, content can work for you even if it produces very little traffic and exposure at all. How?

    Well, when you write it correctly, it's there to build credibility, engage, and persuade anyone who arrives on your site. Helping to "close deals." Someone lands on your site to find out more about you or your product, and your articles are there waiting to boost your image, make arguments for you, and ultimately seduce them.

    This is why even a professional in a niche they have no chance of ranking for should still populate their site with some authority articles.

    Keeping that in mind, what type of content will work FOR you - rather than just acting as filler content that exists just for the purpose of existing?

    First, sit down and ask yourself what you believe about your niche that others might find surprising or controversial - identify several of these talking points.

    Define all the little "twists" on your topic that would give a prospect or reader an "aha" moment if you were explaining your topic for the first time - if you're running a business, think about those things that people are surprised to learn about your industry when you're on the phone or talking with them in person.

    Write down all the things people misunderstand about your niche that need to be cleared up.

    Recall your own stories of going from clueless outsider to expert insider. The things you didn't know you didn't know. Your embarassments you didn't realize were embarassments until later, your old frustrations, your outright failures, your sloppy stumbles, and your big learning moments.

    Pinpoint all the big traps that make people crash and burn if they are new to the subject. All the better if they are non-obvious.

    Write a list of insights that outsiders don't "get" that can cause paradigm shifts when they finally do.

    Turn these little nuggets into pillar content that will add up to an hour or so of reading when a visitor lands on your site. Now you've got some material there to persuade for you no matter where the visitor comes from, describing all the ways you're ideas stand out from the crowd - showing that you actually have OPINIONS.

    If you want some lighter content to keep a steady flow coming in, and to show that you're always thinking about your topic (as a true authority would), carry a little notepad around with you throughout the day. Any time little thoughts concerning your niche occur to you while going through your day, jot them down.

    And even better if you can take on a "storyteller" approach, in which you constantly take semi-related or unrelated things from everyday life and relate them back to your topic (guys like Ben Settle and Matt Furey are great at this).

    As an example, you might see a sign in a restroom that is an effective or ineffective way to get people's attention and get a message across and relate it back to getting attention in marketing. You might see a kid trying to sell a radio on a corner with a hood over his head and relate it back to the way the subconscious messages we send across can destroy our credibility and sales. A bratty kid who gets shunned by other kids at the park might become a metaphor for asshole business owners who don't play well with others.

    By training your brain to constantly be on the lookout for these random connections, you do multiple things. 1) You show that you live and breathe your topic. 2) You get better at finding these connections everywhere and therefore have an endless supply of content material. 3) You tap into the part of the human brain that thrives on stories. 4) You become an ORIGINAL voice. 5) You very likely do become a more expert, more opinionated individual regarding your niche.

    Save these ideas up too so you can pull them out any time you want to write (you may find you start getting ideas constantly). And I would repurpose this constant flow of stories into various forms of content - an email with a link to your core (or most relevant) offer, a social media post across several channels, and an article (the last one you may want to flesh out a bit more.

    If you're still short on ideas, go to relevant forums and pick through the threads for all the various comments and questions that come up from people interested in your topic. Not just the relevent thread starters - dig through the replies too for a variety of input. You'll get such a list of gold-mine ideas I don't see how you could ever run out.

    This is also gold: turn questions and comments people send you into articles and emails. You can even keep the original question in your article and present it in a question/answer format.

    By doing this you not only tap into the thought processes that are already on your target market's mind but you also send the message that a) other people see you as enough of an authority to ask questions in the first place (social proof) and b) encourage more readers to submit questions. It becomes a self-feeding cycle for content generation.

    Finally, don't forget the power of stories about results for other customers/clients. Turn them into case studies or interview articles. Weave bits of these stories into other articles as "examples." Make it more about the inherent lesson than "we did this."

    Pro-tip: even other people's successes can work for you if you use them as examples, as they become a way to support your ideas and build a movie in the reader's mind about the journey to results they could potentially get buying from you. Just because it's not your story doesn't mean it's not emotional and persuasive. Just don't mislead the reader by claiming someone's success as your own - it should merely be an illustrative talking point.

    Following these ideas, you could become a content generation powerhouse on a topic you're passionate about...

    Or even develop a much deeper love for a topic that you're not. (And wouldn't that be something?)

    1) Keyword research. Target potential keywords.

    2) Put keywords and related keys or LSIs in your title and content.

    3) Put sub headings in your content. Do not just display lengthy contents of multiple paragraphs. Group your content with sub headings - h1, h2, h3, etc.

    4) Put inbound and outbound links. Outbound links should be from sites that are informative and not, as much as possible, a competitor.

    5) Add relevant images and optimize accordingly.

    6) Add catchy and interesting title.

    7) Content should be new, interesting, and not recycled from what's already there in the internet.

  • Develop a general marketing plan first, then work your content marketing plan into it.

    Content marketing is just a small part of the bigger picture. Your content marketing goals (views, downloads, etc) has to coincide with your overall marketing goals (sales and conversions). When you don't define your marketing goals, you might end up having an ineffective content marketing strategy or content marketing that doesn't contribute to what your business needs overall.

    There are two things that are important in content marketing for it to be successful long-term.

    Firstly you need to create content that provides genuine value to your reader. Don't be another person that shares pointless, useless or dangerously misleading crap.

    Secondly you need to post regularly. Sporadic posting is never going to catch on.

    Content Marketing is also part of the Google Search Engine Algorithm criteria, so how the public see you through your content plays an important role in both reality and digitally. Writing a good content is not all that matters. A good Content Marketer should also plan a long-term strategy, which create or setting an image or branding for the company, and what kind of persona they are targeting.

    Content Marketer also must focus on the various channels, on how the content should be generated for the channels and personas.

A good content will to turned viral, leading viewers to share and pass the information to another with such action, certainly will allow viewers to remember you and that is what all the marketers want to achieve.

Try not to get on too many different things at once as that may cause you to not get much results if you are spread everywhere at once. Remember that whatever form of content marketing that you do that it takes time and consistency if you wish to get results.

    what to put out 200 different recipe for cooking eggs .. or film videos of you learning a language by chatting with someone who can speak your language and the language you want to learn..

    the more interested you are in a topic the more interesting you can make it seem.. the more entertaining you can be with the content .. the more chance you have to build an audience..as it can take a while even in popular categories .. to build an audience . the key is always creating better and better content .. on that subject ..

    and you are probably not going to do that if you just aim starting out to make the most money .. but it will help if you want to make money to have some idea what you can seel to people who have that interest you do ..

    but hey.. not an expert here ..

    I assume it's about creating content which is SEOd wisely as well as pretty long to give you some sales anyway. So please take that all in account, if you do not have time, you can always hire some good writer for that anyway really. I do want to help.

    Troy talks straight to the point without sugar-coating things.

    Get them results, they'll love you for that. You don't think
    "content". You think thrilled customers stepping on each
    other to hear what you have to say.

    The goal to creating a content marketing strategy is to spread awareness about yourself and / or your business, in front of the biggest crowd of your target market you can reach. That is your audience.

    Let's get clear from the start that a content marketing campaign is not an advertising campaign. While the end should be the same, still it's totally two different things.

    That awareness campaign, your content marketing strategy, must grab the attention of your audience no doubt but, moreover it must pick its curiosity and interest to the point of provoking a fair amount of desire to know more about you and start to follow you and what next or more you can provide.

    The content topic must be of great appeal to your audience and must be both, informative and entertaining. By all means, it should somewhat be related to you and / or your business and / or what you have to offer. Your strategy should include a clear path of the journey your audience will be on, from the day it meets you up to when it becomes a customer.

    However, your strategy should not end there. It's well known that the cost of acquiring a new customer is much greater than simply making to your actual customers. So while keeping your awareness content strategy going on, you must also keep nurturing your actual customers base to literally print your brand in their mind. They will instantly think about you when it's time to renew their patronage with you.

    Focus on content that actually entertains, engages and excites readers in some kind of way. Sometimes it can be with a simple story or anything you feel will stir the reader. With so much competition on the internet these days, the eyeballs of readers is more valued than ever. Think of anything you want them to do as being a reward for the entertainment, excitement or engagement you would provide them with. The simplest action, like clicking a link is a payoff or a reward in exchange for providing any one of these to a high degree.

    Find out what people are looking for and the trends that are going on. Create unique, genuine and relevant content. After that share it via other methods like guest posting, blog commenting, social media, video and photo sharing etc. This will make people aware of your content.

    Research is the toughest part of it. You have to do extensive market research and competitor research. Once you have conclusive results, you'd have to brand your business into not just something your potential customers would love, but something they'd choose over every other option. Push that brand out online with reviews, ads and blog posts and watch your customers flock.

    Content marketing is all about reaching a specific audience and providing the best value to that audience. My recommendation would be to stick to one form of marketing that you prefer example: YouTube , then focus on growing your channel and providing value and solutions regarding that topic. Try not to get on too many different things at once as that may cause you to not get much results if you are spread everywhere at once. Remember that whatever form of content marketing that you do that it takes time and consistency if you wish to get results.

    Spruce up your skills and pepper your copy with a good dose of causticity.

    And adopt ANTICIPATION. Give it a spin. Your skills must be fused into your proposal.

    Yes a proposal.

    Make it official and if needed but a stamp on it.
