    23. 23. Consider this .. Have you ever had an email, a status update or blog post and thought • “What rubbish! or • Tell someone who cares, or • Why am I receiving this??? or • How annoying!! Don’t be that person!
    24. 24. Ask yourself the hard questions… • Who am I talking to? • What problems are they dealing with / trying to solve? • What does s/he need most? What information are they searching for? • How can I help?
    25. 25. Exercise – getting started on YOUR content • Go through your sheet and answer those questions. • I will go though each section and pause so you can fill it out
    26. 26. Preliminary Questions Who am I talking to? • You are NOT talking to everyone! • Pick one customer segment and define them well • Create a ‘cardboard cutout’ in your mind about what this customer looks like, and their life situation, in order to be answer the next questions… give them a name
    27. 27. Preliminary Questions What problems are they dealing with / trying to solve? • Take some time to think about this • Draw on your experience of existing customers or • Take time to listen in on {online + offline} conversations
    28. 28. Preliminary Questions What does s/he need most? What information are they searching for? • Pause and consider • Write it down • Ask the person next to you for help
    29. 29. Preliminary Questions How can I help? • Having the answers to the above questions, what knowledge, skills and resources do you have that can help (& I don’t mean your Product or Service) • Content is {generally}*about marketing not sales. However great content marketing makes sales much easier. *more about that later
    30. 30. Lets change tack and look at a case study http://www.copyblogger.com/ryan-masters-case-study/ Read article and go over lessons learnt, and see if this helps you going back over your answers
    31. 31. For content to be effective it needs to • Be of high quality (commit to the process, quality not quantity) • Be relevant (know your audience) • Be contextual (be where your clients ARE) • Contribute to the Know, Like, Trust Vault
    32. 32. Content by Buying Cycle – another perspective
    33. 33. Don’t mix up your messages You should either • Be providing something of value or • Asking them to buy Don’t confuse people by mixing up these two messages
    34. 34. Content by Skill Set / Resources • Be less ambitious & more practical (do something you are likely to succeed with) • Under-promise and over-deliver, as trust will be undermined if you promise and then don’t deliver • Start small, build confidence, competence before you know what you can commit to regularly • Generally one or two channels are better than many unless you have a huge team!
    35. 35. Leverage Content • Create once, repurpose segment • Create once, distribute multiple channels • Curate and Comment as Content • Content, Community, Conversation • Controversy as Content
    36. 36. Important point about outsourcing content • Your content is your strategy and proof for achieving the ‘know, like and trust’ needed to convert leads into clients • Getting help with what you are not good at is important, but the ideas and knowledge must come from YOU, or someone as skilled / knowledgeable within your business • I often get asked …“I have purchased this newsletter content from somewhere and want to email it out to my clients…”
    37. 37. YOUR content • Choose topic • Choose method • Choose distribution • Outline • Next steps
