About Me Founder, Siege Media. We are a content marketing agency in San Diego, CA with a speciality in SEO. http://siegemedia.com @rosshudgens

Слайд 3

Content marketing is growing.

Слайд 4

Businesses are publishing more than they ever have.

Слайд 5

Ecommerce investment is only going to increase. http://contentmarketinginstitute.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/2015_B2C_Research.pdf

Слайд 6

Unfortunately, creation doesn’t mean success.

Слайд 7

More likely, most of the people ramping up heavily will end up hurting.

Слайд 8

With content development – especially for SEO – you can’t hit publish and expect traffic. @ROSSHUDGENS

Слайд 9

Specific to SEO, the reality is still that content that drives SEO success needs a tie-in to links. Backlink correlation at 0.31. http://searchmetrics.com/wp-content/uploads/seo-ranking-factors-2014.png

Слайд 10

On the other hand, if your ONLY focus is links, you’ll probably fail, too. @ROSSHUDGENS

Слайд 12

The most powerful application of content marketing in Ecommerce is top of the funnel, search driven content. http://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice.html

Слайд 13

@ROSSHUDGENS Combine content that can drive links with top-of-the-funnel search volume to explosively grow your business.

Слайд 20

Unfortunately, not every industry has a ton of top-of-the-funnel SEO driven opportunity. We can teach them how to personalize products.. so they don’t buy from us. Maybe not the best idea. @ROSSHUDGENS

Слайд 21

If you focus on the flywheel, there’s still lots of SEO benefit to be had from content marketing. http://bit.ly/rand-flywheel

Слайд 22

Every piece of content you put out should have secondary KPIs besides links. http://thinkgeek.com/blog/

Слайд 23

In ecommerce, the most valuable one for you is almost always email signups. http://thinkgeek.com/blog/

Слайд 24

You should also have easily accessible links to all your social accounts on your blog.

Слайд 25

Other Suggestions: Include related products in sidebar/below post. e Use an email CTA in the sidebar with a compelling offer/discount code for signup.

Слайд 26

(Good) Infographics are a great way to engage audience/earn links. e They do especially well in ecommerce because tall images perform better on Pinterest. e

Слайд 27

On April 21st Google’s Mobile Update is coming – make your content mobile-friendly, or lose traffic. http://bit.ly/april-21

Слайд 34


Слайд 35

@ROSSHUDGENS Hitting publish and sharing on ineffective social accounts is not a distribution strategy.

Слайд 36

@ROSSHUDGENS Every piece of content should have a distribution plan, and defined success metrics.

Слайд 37

@ROSSHUDGENS On our blog, we define per post success as 100+ Twitter shares, which greatly informs macro goals of more leads, links, and organic traffic.

Слайд 38

What distribution options do you have to get the results you w If not existing social profiles, what are your distribution options as an ecommerce company? @ROSSHUDGENS

Слайд 39

Facebook Dark Posts It’s possible to get CPC to .01 if you connect with a “node” (person connected to many like minded). http://bit.ly/fb-dark-posts

Слайд 40

StumbleUpon Ads Low engagement, high pageviews. Best for visual content. CPV can be .03-.08. http://bit.ly/su-ads StumbleUpon Advertising

Слайд 41

Pinterest Promoted Pins In early stages, must apply for access. Average CPC varies between .15-25 in limited sample. Best for tall images that lead to full post. https://ads.pinterest.com

Слайд 42

http://bit.ly/outreach-bp Email Outreach To generate high end placements like this, you need to do (consistent) email outreach for your content.

Слайд 43

StumbleUpon Ads Delicate platform for distribution, but big potential. Must be 100% sure you are good fit or risk ban. http://bit.ly/reddit-su Reddit Submissions

Слайд 44

StumbleUpon Ads High CPC ranging from $.25 to $.35, but can generate a lot of traffic. http://bit.ly/tab-out Content Recommendation Services

Слайд 45

WARNING: Paid distribution can be worth it if you hit multiple KPIs (signups, follows, etc). If you only have one –links – you’re unlikely to see ROI.

Слайд 46

Content Marketing is a Process. @ROSSHUDGENS

Слайд 47

You probably won’t get it right the first time. @ROSSHUDGENS

Слайд 48

But with work, you’ll slowly start getting better. @ROSSHUDGENS

Слайд 49

And when it clicks, amazing growth is possible. @ROSSHUDGENS
