Why you need to define your target market for blog posts

The internet is a massive, disorientating space. There's plenty of competition, and it's easy to get lost in the crowd. This is why you need to define your target market or persona for each blog post, to be effective and to create ripples of interest in that big online pool…

How to create an effective lead magnet

If you’re investing in any form of inbound marketing that generates visitors to your website, you’re going to want as many of those visitors as possible to convert into paying customers. However, it’s unrealistic to expect that everyone will become customers straight away; some prospects need to be ‘warmed up’…

4 features of a fully functional website

A website plays an integral part in all inbound marketing strategies. It’s where you send people to find out more information, to educate them and to ultimately turn them into customers. It does, however, serve as an endpoint to your marketing strategy. It’s where people go to read your blog posts, get your great educational content, find out about your company and become leads. Here are a few important features for a fully functional website:

How content marketing can support effective lead generation

Content marketing and lead generation are two disciplines that go hand-in-hand. If you don't have a handle on one, you're unlikely to see the best results with the other. Running a lead generation campaign without compelling content is like fishing without bait, while content marketing that doesn't take lead generation into consideration represents a major missed opportunity.

How companies can get in on the rise of bots

Bots were once the thoughts of creative minds who wrote scripts for sci-fi movies yet today are more “real” than ever before. The term ‘bot’ is getting used more regularly theses days and bots are starting to get used in many different scenarios.

Is SEO a one-off job?

This is a question often posed to our team and something we often shudder at. We reckon it's like asking whether a happy, life-long personal relationship can be guaranteed by going on a single date! We're comparing starting points here, and while getting more traffic might be considered to be a short-term possibility, how likely is a one-off communication to actually gain more proper leads and then more reliable customers on a constant basis?

SEO could be described as a modern take on traditional advertising. It is a lot more than that, in terms of how we communicate, but it's still valuable to take a moment to consider what advertising has always worked to achieve. Attracting viable, potential customers for a business to sell to.  A good example would be advertising for a traditional small-town furniture store. In the past, the company would almost certainly use local press. It's true they would occasionally highlight one-off events, such as sales and stock clearances, but would also wish to build both a reputation in their community and a familiarity with their products, services and attitudes.

In doing so, they would hope to gain more in-store traffic, and their sale ads might well achieve that, if perhaps only on a short-term basis. From this footfall, it would be the task of the people working in the store to assess which are the worthwhile leads, from among the jostling crowds, and then spend most time working to convert them. Success would mean a sale, but not, in real terms, a long-term customer (yet). Further advertising would encourage them to return - even to pass information to interested friends; thus generating more customers with potential.

We are now increasingly in a digital, more than a print, world. Your potential customers might be more interactive online than in-person. But, your SEO activities still need to identify who they are, and know exactly what needs to be said to attract their attention and interest. This means that your SEO content needs to be an ongoing part of your communications strategy; both reaching for new contacts, as well as strengthening current ones.

Do I Need a Blog for my Business?

The answer to the question 'do I need a blog for my business?' is, surely, yes. A blog allows you to attract new customers, inform clients about new products in your business and establish a platform to communicate to your target audience. If you don't have a blog, you should contemplate setting one up, as your competitors could soon start to run away with your market; a recent study by Hubspot suggested that companies who blog receive 97% more links to their site than those that don't, enabling them to appear higher in the search engine rankings and, therefore, attract more traffic.
