You Believed the Biggest Myth Content Marketing Ever Told the World #1

Слайд 10

We Imagine Content Marketing Works Like This… Let’s go see what’s on the Internet today, shall we?

Слайд 11

I wonder what this post Kieran tweeted is all about.

And I’ll just fill out their contact form with my information….

Слайд 14

Oh! Better not forget to follow all their social profiles while I’m at it.

Слайд 15

You might laugh, but a lot of companies invest in content marketing on the assumption that this is how it works! Me make content. Humans click. Them buy. Me get money.

Слайд 16

In Reality, It Works Like This: Let’s see what’s on Hacker News… Meh.

Слайд 17

How about Facebook? Oh, right. Baby pictures.

Слайд 18

Let’s try Twitter. Meh.

Слайд 19

Maybe Google+? Actually… This looks kinda interesting.

Слайд 20

After seeing 400+ links I could have clicked, I finally chose this one. It’s a good article, and this example, naturally, resonated ?

Слайд 21

I wonder why I like this blog so much? About a week later, I caught a link to Beardbrand’s blog.

Слайд 22

No magic trick to grow a thicker beard?! Dammit! I’d followed them on Google+, so I watched this video they shared, too.

Слайд 23

When my lovely wife told me that I might need to look into some mustache wax, I thought of Beardbrand. But I couldn’t remember their name! Lovely Wife Imminent need for mustache wax Who were those guys that made the cool beard stuff?

Слайд 24

So, naturally, I searched Google: Nope Nope Nope Yes!!

Слайд 25

A Perfect Match!

This is How Content Marketing Really Works: Caveman Rand explain.

Слайд 28

This is How Content Marketing Really Works: Me Make Content. Humans click. If them like, them remember. Maybe them see more content I make. Visit again. Me build trust, relationship with humans. When them need me product, them come back.

Слайд 29

Content marketing not about convert 1st visit. Or 2nd. Or 3rd. Only foolish humans think it work like this.

Слайд 30

Content marketing about earning familiarity, trust, and relationship.

Слайд 31

Maybe sale come. Maybe not. Smart cave marketer no care. Smart cave marketer know every visit chance to build relationship. Maybe earn fan. That good enough.

Слайд 32

The Obligation Rests on Marketers to Set the Right Expectations with Our Teams & Clients

Слайд 33

You Made Content Without a Community #2

Слайд 34

Does Content Spread Simply Because It’s Really, Really Good? If this content’s really good, it’ll just spread “virally,” right guys?

Слайд 35

OK, Probably Not Ha! That’s a good one, Rand!

Слайд 36

In My Experience, Content Spreads Because It Inspires a Community

Слайд 37

It Reinforces a Belief

Слайд 38

Refutes an Opposing Argument

Слайд 39

Starts (or Renews) a Passionate Discussion

Слайд 40

Is in Someone’s Financial/Promotional Interests

Слайд 41

Leverages Group Inclusion Dynamics

Слайд 42

Makes the Sharer Look Smart/Important/Worldly/Etc

Слайд 43

“Good Enough” Content Often Performs Well when a Community Is Behind It

Слайд 44

Only the Best 0.1% of Content Can Go “Viral” without a Pre-existing Community

Слайд 45

Don’t Bet Your Marketing on Being the 1 in 1,000

Слайд 46

Before you create content, ask the question: “Who will support & amplify this content and why?”

Слайд 47

You Invested in Content Creation, But Not in its Amplification #3

Слайд 48

Content Must Reach People in Order to Reach Its Potential

Слайд 49

Channels for Reaching the Right People Depend on Your Audience

Слайд 50

Most Amplification Methods Fall Into These Three Buckets: Broadcast 1:1 Paid Promotion

Слайд 51

1) Broadcast (often via Social Media, Email, or through Events)

Слайд 52

2) 1:1 Outreach (via Social, Email, or In-Person)

Слайд 53

3) Paid Amplification (many varieties)

Слайд 54

You Ignored Content’s Most Powerful Channel: SEO #4

Слайд 66

Google Search Has Grown Massively ~6 Billion Searches/Day! http://www.statisticbrain.com/google-searches/

Слайд 67

While Search Traffic is Distributed, Social is Highly Concentrated http://www.simplereach.com/blog/facebook-continues-to-be-the-biggest-driver-of-social-traffic/

Слайд 68

SEO is Also Critical Because of Intent “Do things” mode “Browse” mode

Слайд 71

When Done Right, Content Marketing is the Rising Tide that Lifts the SEO Ships Without content marketing, it’s incredibly hard to earn the types of links that will confer domain authority & rankings in search engines.
