  • You may be thinking Google, and you’re right!A. Search Engines- Your potential customers find you on Google because you are digitally relevant.
  • Digital relevance has a lot to do with what a brand contributes to the conversations related to their specialties. What a brand contributes beyond its own site has tremendous shaping power for the brand.Articles are another channel for a brand to add value to the conversations that impact their business. Infographics – tools that convey information in creative graphic ways – are great content for sharing and repurposing. Again, it’s all about helping a brand contribute to the conversations that drive their business.Twitter is a prime channel for building rapport with a market, for increasing visibility with search engines, and for testing, shaping, and refining brand expressions. Videos are another powerful expression brands add to critical conversations, and videos are especially popular for sharing and creating additional visibility in the digital world.Where the first several examples of content are similar to what you offer in a conversation when you ask another person question, share expertise, or make introductions, your on-page content is the equivalent of having an answer ready to go when the person with whom you’re speaking finally says, “So, tell me more about yourself.” People ask about you only after you’ve demonstrated enough value that they want more.Press releases are key strategic tools in shaping conversations and establishing leadership with other people. Press releases are often created in-house, are specific to events or announcement, and are one expression of a larger PR effort.PR is the strategic telling of a brand’s story in places where other people will notice it. This can include TV, radio, podcasts and other journalist efforts that may touch any area of content. In many ways, SEO is targeted PR.

You also want to give thought to the placement of your content. There needs to be compelling content describing your product categories, as well as robust descriptions on the product pages
