  • Create Better Targeted, Relevant Content Strategies with Web Analytics
    Christina J. Inge,
    Measurable Marketing Strategy
  • Audience Segments-Overview
    Your Audience can be divided into:
    Current customers
    Core audience—those who already have a strong personal or professional interest in your type of product or service
    Other interests—researchers, competitors, those not yet ready to buy.
  • Defining Conversion For Content Marketing
    90% or more of conversions come from your core audience—those who already have a strong personal or professional interest in your product, service, or brand.
    Conversion frequently follows a predictable trajectory:
  • Measuring Search is Not the Same as Measuring Audience Interest or Engagement
    Drivers of traffic to the site and customer interests are not always identical.
    Customer interests are best measured not by keywords driving traffic to your site, but by top content.
  • Keywords Driving Traffic to Your Site
    Keywords that drive traffic to your site are measures of:
    PR effectiveness
    Brand advocate effectiveness
    Marketing effectiveness
    Measuring keywords that drive traffic to your site can:
    Increase conversions from organic and paid search
    Identify PR opportunities
    Identify key brand advocates
  • Long-tail vs. short-tail
  • Long-tail vs. Short-tail Keywords
    Top content by traffic source = keyword = short-tail keywords is an essential measure of the general public’s interests.
    Top content by traffic source = keyword = long-tail keywords is an essential measure of enthusiasts’ and professionals’ interests.
    General public

    Verticals: Pharma, Education, Publishing

    Customer interests

    Optimize marketing spend and PR efforts
    Lead to the development of high-demand, successful new content strategies
  • Top Content Data
    Top content is a measure of:
    Customer interests
    PR effectiveness
    Measuring top content can:
    Optimize marketing spend and PR efforts
    Lead to the development of high-demand, successful new content strategies
  • But You Need to Know What Content Is Really Working to Convert Customers
  • Your Current Top Content
    Needs to be segmented
    Identify what content is most interesting to your current customers, most valuable potential customers
  • Addressing the Needs of Your Core Audience
    Top content by traffic source = direct is an essential measure of your core audience’s interests.
    Never lose sight of the needs of your core audience and current customers in the pursuit of new site traffic. Unless you’re going in a new direction, your current and about-to-convert customers the core of your business.
  • Segmenting Your Audience and Message
    Decide who you want to reach.
    Identify what the valuable traffic is.
    Does your desired reach vary seasonally
    • How big a priority is micro-conversion?
  • Homing in on Essential Data
    Most essential data:
    Top content – Traffic source = direct:
    The organization’s customers and those ready to convert.
    Top content – Keyword = long-tail keywords
    Those closer to a purchasing decision.
  • Develop the Right Content
    Select a few core topics from your long-tail traffic
    Identify content most important to your direct traffic, other than transactional pages
    Segment out that content by business unit or vertical
    Create targeted landing pages, white papers, webinars, emails, and social campaigns
  • Get Internal Subject Matter Experts
    Your IT staff, managers, front-line professionals are the best advocates for your brand
    Offer support for content development—remember, it’s their content expertise that’s the focus. Style, structure, marketing you can all help with.
