Content Marketing Ideas for your Business

While contents say a lot about your business, marketing it effectively by making sure that it reaches the targeted readers is a challenge. Most successful companies have an effective content marketing strategy allowing them an intrinsic advantage over their competitors.
Here are some of ideas that you can use for your business effectively.

Create a Functional Blog:

One of the best content marketing ideas for improving sales for any business or services is to have a functional blog. While most companies or organizations seem content by simply having a website, having a functional blog adds the x- factor which can be instrumental in all marketing plans.
Since website can have formal content about the details of the company and its products or services, a blog gives the company an informal platform to meet with their existing as well as potential clients. A blog can also be the face of all new announcements, plans and schemes by involving active customer feedback. After all there is no better marketing campaign that has been discussed with existing and future clients.  The key of course is to have a regularly updated blog sharing thoughts.

Guest Posts:

To make sure that your content reaches the desired set of people flawlessly and to establish an authority in your field, offering guest posts to niche portals and publications is a good idea. Many magazines and portals welcome guest articles from industry experts in various fields.
Publishing customer awareness information about the new developments in your industry is a god way to ignite user feedback. Sharing of such information gives out a positive impression and awareness about your company. You need not waste considerable time in drafting articles and contacting various publishers. A professional content writing company like V Create Media will draft the articles on your behalf and pitch it to various niche publications. All you need to do is contact V Create Media and discuss your needs.

Balance Visual and Textual Content:  

Having a textual content all the time may not be the best content marketing idea. Using visual elements like pictures, videos and slides are recommended to make the content far more effective. A visual content not only attracts more people, but it can also mean that users can get hooked to the textual content. Another big advantage of having visual content is that it can be shared on social media by visitors and if the visual is effectively crafted, it can go viral and bring a lot more new users.

Use Social Media Effectively:

Social media is a very powerful tool and must be a part of any content marketing plans. The key is to use each platform according to the type of people flocking on that particular network. A more informal content on social platforms like Facebook and Twitter can help connect with the larger audiences. On the other hand for professional networking, platforms like Linkedin require a more sophisticated and professional contextual approach. 

Make Content Gadget Friendly:


With more and more people moving towards tablets and smartphones to surf the internet, it is imperative to make sure that all published content is compatible for such new gadgets. There is no point n having a very good content marketing plan which is not accessible to people using tablets or other hand held devices.

Tips to Write a Great ‘About Us’ Page for your Website

There is no denying the fact that the product / services page of any website is the face of the website and arguably the most visited page. While home page gives the initial impression to a new visitor, it is the ‘About us’ page that holds the key by describing in detail the motive behind the website and what it offers to the viewers. Having a cosmetic home page can draw new visitors initially but a well detailed and intelligently written ‘about us’ page can make sure that visitors come back to the website for updates. Here are certain tips that one can use in order to create an impressive about us page for both business and personal websites.

Small businesses hiring more online workers

http://blogs.reuters.com/small-business/2011/10/19/small-businesses-hiring-more-online-workers/


When Casey McConnell started text messaging marketing company Qittle he took the traditional route of hiring onsite employees. But he soon realized it was more advantageous to hire workers online.
“We found it was easy to find these specialists or people that we could hire for a certain amount,” said McConnell, the CEO of Qittle. “We didn’t have the extra overhead and we just got the project done. It’s really easy for us to ramp up our needs or pull back using contractors. If we had an internal staff it’s pretty hard to fluctuate like that.”

The New Magazine Approach

The job of a magazine writer used to be fairly straightforward: Find an interesting topic, find out what are new, interview people about it, and then put them into a compelling feature that will keep readers turning the magazine's pages. The work required a solid foundation in journalism, which can be summed up as the ability to report and write.

Indeed, if you are like most would-be magazine writers, you simply enjoy the job of writing. You probably have a few favorite magazines that you like to read more than any others, and you believe that you can contribute to the ongoing conversation that those magazines have, in print, with their readers.

Having a Website is not an Online Presence

One thing I have noticed on the ‘www’ is that many businesses are no more than an online brochure. Many entrepreneurs had spent a lot to have it, but often not being in the right track. The days went demanded only to that extend, but things are changing.

Keeping yourself on top of your client’s mind is the foremost mantra in all successful businesses. A carefully drafted, well-timed and well-targeted newsletter will make your job easier.

In January 2011, Titan's Fastrack brand celebrated a big achievement - one million likes on Facebook - by having a 50 per cent off sale at its stores on a Sunday only for those fans. By 3-4 p.m., the crowd was unmanageable. The police had to be called in, shutters were downed, and people were only allowed to enter in groups of ten. By 7-8 p.m, all the stores were stocked out. A single day's sale totted up to Rs 2.75 crore. News of the sale was intimated via status updates on the Facebook page and nowhere else.

Start a Travel Newsletter for your Company


If your company's core business activity revolves around tourism and hospitality, it would do your business a whole lot of good to initiate a travel newsletter aimed at travel agents as well as potential or existing clients. Once your company decides to let your newsletter do the selling, you'll need to take care of a few relevant points before commencing the newsletter.

1. Start with fewer pages: This caution may dampen the spirit of a few souls who have mentally decided to launch with a bang! But the idea here is not to discourage but to ensure your enthusiasm never dies an untimely death. I suggest you initially plan for newsletter with around 20 to 25 pages of content. Based on the feedback you receive, It will be easier to add relevant pages as you progress.
