Content Marketing | New Zealand
What is Content Marketing?
Your business can drive clients and customers through the clever strategic use of Content Marketing (Content Marketing Strategy). Content Marketing is becoming more prevalent in New Zealand as Google and other search engines slowly alter their algorithm to exclude all the optimisation “tricks” that were used to enable you to place your website high in search rankings.
What worked last year or even a few years ago now has a neutral effect or at worst a negative effect on where your website is placed in the search engine rankings.There are still a few “pointer” tactics that are required but these are largely overshadowed by the content you offer online or to be more specific how much value your content offers readers, users or potential customers.
Here is the golden rule “Publish content for your potential customers and customers that provides specific and real value to them”. When you do this a couple things happen; You build trust in your brand & your prospects will see you as an authority figure in your industry no matter which industry you are in.
People naturally seek out those who have provided value upfront.
Content Marketing is generally a long term activity underpinned by a content marketing strategy. Social Media, Blogs, Emails, Eletters and other content distribution channels are merely part of the distribution of content. Using these channels without any thought to the overall content strategy rarely gives results.
