  • Dear Trimax Solutions user, ARE YOU MAKING ANY OF THE TOP 5 CONTENT MARKETING MISTAKES? With millions of pieces of marketing content being shared daily by businesses, only 30 – 40% is actually used. This is mainly due to content creators committing one of the most common mistakes. When producing marketing content it is extremely important to be clear on who it is aimed at, what result you hope to get from it and how you will achieve this. By ensuring you are aware of your target audience and what might grab their attention, is a key are to focus on when designing your marketing content. What content mistakes are you making Read on to find out if you are making any of the top errors to ensure you improve the quality of your marketing content: THE TOP 5 CONTENT MISTAKES 1) CREATING TOO LITTLE OR TOO MUCH When coming up with relevant and interesting content for blogs, social media and newsletters, some of us find it quite a struggle. Others find it hard to limit the amount of content they produce. There is no magic number in terms of the amount of content you should produce in a set time. You should however always be mindful that quality wins out over quantity every time. Keep content concise, well thought out and to the point to retain the attention of the reader. Ensure to include diversity with your content with information that is useful to your audience. Help to answer different questions through a variety of media channels. Different types of content, for example, could be a quick company update on LinkedIn, a detailed blog posts or in-depth newsletter. You can repurpose content such as a PowerPoint presentation into an informative video, by recording an explanatory voice over with screencasting software. 2) GIVING THE HARD SELL Building credibility and trust with potential customers from the offset is essential for a purchase decision to be reached. Many companies use content as a tool to give customers the “hard sell” without building a relationship with their audience first. By creating content to help your customers initially, you can add value to your business, which is more likely to encourage readers to buy from you. Giving your potential leads a reason to buy from you is a lot more effective at persuading them to choose you, than to go straight in with the hard sell, with nothing credible to back it up.
  • 3) FAIL TO KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE Many businesses produce content which has not been generated according to their target audience. This type of content is therefore pretty useless to both the intended audience and a waste of time to produce! Your target audience are probably likely to be in information overload, due to the efforts of your competition, so you need to make your content stand out to them and grab their attention. Original and helpful information encourages your audience to share your content with others, to spread your message further and expand reach.It is important to know your audience and speak to them in a way they can relate to. You can use content to show that you recognise the problems that they might be having, which have inevitably led them to you, and explain how you would solve these. Content can be created to briefly highlight the key benefits of using your company and explaining what sets you ahead of the competition. Be sure to use eye catching headlines, images and subject titles, where appropriate, to reach out to your target audience. 4) GOING IT ALONE A common misconception is that all the content you create has to be thought up yourself. It is perfectly acceptable to reference other relevant and supportive content, which is of use to your target audience, as long as you reference the original content provider appropriately. Referencing content from other sources is actually very useful to your audience. It enables them view lots of valuable information in one place without having to trawl the internet, saving them time. It can also keep blog and newsletter subscribes coming back for more, as they trust that you will be the expert in the area doing the searching and summarising the information for them, as a trusted information source. 5) NOT MEASURING RESULTS After spending time making sure your content doesn’t fall into any of the above pitfalls, one of the biggest mistakes many businesses make is not measuring if it is actually working for you! If it works then great carry on as you are but if it doesn’t now is the time to make changes until it does. This will avoid wasting your time and losing out on potential customers. There are plenty of free tools out there which enable you to see how your website and social media perform, for example Google Analytics, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter analytics. If you use a CRM system or content management system these can also provide the data you need to analyse the success of your content. Areas to look into would be the amount of people sharing your content, as well as the amount of people subscribing to it and of course actually viewing your content! Looking into any peaks or troughs of sales can also be linked to your content so make sure to communicate with your sales team when analysing the success of your content.
