Content is the basic medium of communication
Today, good content is an important part of a marketing initiative. This includes your website. Good content is what sets your website apart from others and for this you need to deliver the right message into the hearts and minds of your customers.
Content is the basic medium of communication of a brand with its customers. Content cannot be substituted with any other mode of bonding that a brand can have with its audience. Content can be used to ensure that your existing customers remember your brand, but the catch is – you need good quality content with genuine information to achieve this feat. The information provided to your audience should either entertain or enlighten them.
Good Content determines success of a website
Success of your website is determined primarily by its content. If you look at it minutely, you’ll see that other components of your website namely – it’s design or visual appearance only provide a secondary support role. Design itself will not bring you customers.
The key to success in content marketing is having clear, relevant and rich content that delivers the right message with power and conviction. Content of a website should target an audience, engage them and persuade them to take action.
Good Content – meets user’s needs and key business objectives
Good content is essential to make the association of a brand with an audience strong, smooth, effective and lasting. It meets its users’ needs and supports key business objectives of the brand. It also engage and inform an audience. If your content is well-written and organized, then people will want more of it. If your content is overwritten, redundant, and irrelevant— then people may come, look, and leave it. Mostly, they will not come back again to have more.
Ironically most content that we find online today is simply— outdated or inaccurate. Most content is not doing what it is supposed to do. And somehow, we can’t seem to get it fixed also. It’s almost like the elephant in the room, the one thing no one really wants to talk about. You need a content inventory and content audit to address this situation.
