If you’re looking to increase your sales, content marketing is a great way. Why? Well the obvious answer is that it helps with your SEO– but you already knew that. Beyond that, though, a good content marketing strategy will keep your customers engaged and focused on your business and your product.
Minimizing Your Bounce Rates
Here’s a new term for you to memorize: bounce rate. This will tell you how many people are leaving your page shortly after visiting it. In other words, these are the potential customers you’ve lost. If we haven’t made it clear enough yet, you want this ratio to be low. You want to make sure your visitors look deeper into your product so they can actually buy it. To that end, you need to keep them engaged long enough. If they skim your first page and get bored, they’re going to move on to something else that’s not you. On the other hand, if they stay engaged, they’re more likely to be interested enough to give you their money. You’d be surprised what more gripping content can do for your revenue.
Content Marketing Influence
Always remember that your content should be focused on, but never limited to, your target audience. There’s a whole world of people who might just stumble onto your website. Those are the people most susceptible to “impulse buy” your product without knowing any better. Take advantage of this. A good content marketing strategy will give you the power to control this group’s knowledge on your product. You can make them think what you want which means you can make them buy what you want. (Obviously, we’re assuming that you want them to buy your product and not your competitors’).
Increasing Loyalty and Revisits
The more your content appeals to your audience, the more often they’ll read it. If you do a good enough job with this, you’ll have nabbed yourself some returning readers. It then follows that you’ll have recurring purchases. This way, you can increase the number of purchases without increasing the number of customers. Add to this all the new customers you should be getting with a good content marketing strategy and you have yourself a recipe for growth.
Branding Comes Down to Content
What you choose to show your audience will ultimately decide how they perceive you. In other words, your content defines your brand. This means that engaging your audience with your content will also attach them to your brand. Consequently, they’ll be more likely to buy from you as opposed to your competitors. Congratulations! Not only have you boosted your own revenue, but you’ve also one-upped your competitors. In addition to that, these are the customers that will probably tell their friends about you. Now, by engaging your customers, you’ve increased your sales, beaten your competitors, and encouraged word-of-mouth (read: “free”) advertising.
