5 Tips on Content Marketing to Help You Get Found on the Internet

Not so long ago, Google Panda and Penguin made a number of changes to their algorithms. The result was massive confusion and panic among internet marketers. No one was prepared for this, and it meant that the internet marketers had to start from scratch to align themselves with the updates.

According to Google, they will be changing their algorithms to help websites with good content be found easily on the internet. As such, it is important to ensure that whatever other  "tricks" you use to get found on the internet, you continue coming up with good content. After all, the old saying has it that "content is King". Here are five tips to help with content marketing.
  1. Your audience counts: Having quality content and videos is good, but hardly sufficient. Find out what out what is popular in your industry and find a way of bettering it. Your content will only count if it meets the needs of your audience.
  2. Dedicate resources: It is not easy coming up with good content. You need money and/ or time. If you can come up with the content yourself, you will have to set aside time to work on the project. If not, you can always find a freelancer to do it for you.
  3. Set high standards: Time and money are always in short supply. This is however not a reason for you to publish substandard content. Ensure that your articles read well and your videos make sense. Bad content is bad for business.
  4. Take advantage of the social media: Good content is worthless, almost, if it does not get noticed. Have a presence on the social media and make it easy for your site visitors to share your content with their friends on the social media.
  5. Consistency pays: Sometimes, and I am telling you this from experience, there will not be much traffic coming to your site, your good content notwithstanding. Let this not demoralize you. It happens to the best of us! What counts is a consistent approach to the game, your site visitors will appreciate it. 
Any suggestions?
