  • It’s not news to you that technology has drastically changed the way we, as consumers, use the internet.
  • making recommendations
  • big brands are showing their personality. It is expected now that we are more human. Corporate speak, and jargon are dead.
  • In the end, we’re all up for some entertainment.
  • we are now solving problems, not selling products.
  • Brands have a new set of challenges and goals. Pr roles have expanded - bits of data across various web channels But we don’t want to be “sold to” we want to find the information on our own, and make decisions without talking to a sales person.
  • We’re now responsible for getting engaged in the conversation. Many people will say we’ve lost control over the conversation. Completely false. We now can manage and see what people have been saying about us all along. Yes, it gives many a bigger a platform and it amplifies our challenges, which si all the more reason we need to understand this so we can properly guide our clients and employers through the maze.
  • Content is the stuff that appears when your prospect searches for a solution to their problem that you solve. Content is the stuff I showed you at the beginning of this presentaiton. Google calls it the zero moment of truth.
  • Story about Latch - from want to work to have to work. He didn’t find me by the blog - and that’s OK - sometimes, instead of generating leads, content converts leads. Scott simon story
  • Getting found online is measured by organic search. top three google listings for a keyphrase get 58.4% of the traffic. Top spot gets 36% more clicks than the one below it. keywords = traffic = back links = more traffic and your SEO improves and your organic search goes like this. This is my blog. I started in November, 2012.
  • organic search is what you get by attracting.
  • What do you want your customer to do when they read this piece of content? subscribe, try a demo, buy something. ask for it with a clear call to action. web traffic - top of funnel email traffic - middle of funnel video and other content - bottom of funnel forms to convert - use mailchimp and add your email forms- need to have long-form content for this.
  • What do you want to accomplish? I’m working with a client where we are trying to increase organic growth with current clients. so that’s a different strategy than if you’re trying to say, just raise awareness about your organization - maybe you are a membership and want to foster that membership - you want retention.
  • Who’s talking What are they saying What is your competition doing? Where is it all taking place?
  • We can’t always be the “only” at something so decide where you can be excellent and determine what your content will accomplish.
  • Getting found online is key to everything you do. Creating the keywords, and what you want to rank for should be paramount to all your content creation. user intent. I’m going to get technical on you for a few minutes.
  • Stop here and answer questions.
  • I know what you’re thinking now.
  • So then you decide what media you’ll use.
  • Any questions?
  • 79 percent of Americans use a smart phone to help with purchase decisions. 70 percent check reviews before making a purchase. look at your google analytics to see if you have traffic coming from mobile. Audience > Mobile . overview
  • They are social outposts because they are a place to engage with your community and extend your networks, but the goal should always be to get their loyalty on your own site. Why - What social networks what kind of content. Encourage check-ins, post photos to your timeline, create event and ask people to RSVP.
  • REmember the negative reviews and the comments on the forum? Backlinks are votes for your site
  • You’ve - worked on attracting.... then you’ve engaged.... Now it’s time to take the leads you’ve been gathering and get them to do what you want them to do.
  • At some point, you’ll have to do something really scary. Give yourself permission to be less than perfect.
