DESCRIPTION1 - Title 2 - The Agenda 3 - Meet the Whitefish Marketing team Whitefish Marketing is a Kent based digital marketing agency. Our core services revolve around the consumer journey on client websites and we categorize these as our "Acquisition", "Conversion" and "Retention" strategies. 4 - "What's the real purpose of Content Marketing?" Generally all types of content will fall into a position of either a) communicating a message, b) educating or informing your audience, or c) influencing your audience in some way. It's important to remember the initial purpose and end goal for what you wish to achieve whenever you write a piece of content. 5 - Content Matrix Courtesy of Distilled.net, we can see a content matrix which expands the above notion, and populates 4 areas: Entertain/Educate/Persuade/Convert. It's vital that your content marketing is not just focusing on the "written word" but also adopting more rich media content. 6 - Copywriters Vs SEOs There is a difference between these 2 positions. In past years, the SEO marketers would be responsible for writing blogs, optimised and targeted for specific keywords or phrases. Long gone are those days of simply stuffing the text with keywords (Google Panda had something to say about that). Putting that "blackhat technique" to one side, the responsibility of the SEO is not just to focus on the content, but many other factors; technical SEO structure, backlink profile and much more. A professional copywriter will focus solely on the content for the audience, rather than for Google's crawlers - as should be the case. Taking a brief, outlining certain keywords (which will always be required), and understanding the goal of the message, is key to creating valuable content. Understand there is a difference between the 2 professional services. 7 - Statistics Just some key statistics on the use of content marketing and how it helps your business.

This is a common mistake, usual in a bid to save time and cut corners. The buying process sees the consumer progress through 4 stages: Awareness / Research / Evaluation / Purchase (in fact there is also Post-purchase and retention, but not noted here). Matching the right message at the right stage will improve conversion. 10 - Measurement of Succss There is no one hard and fast way to measure content ROI, but here's some ideas to monitor for your KPIs. 11 - Beware the Pitfalls DO NOT; a) Duplicate content b) Have pages with "thin content". c) Don't overoptimise or keyword spam your content 12 - Questions for Whitefish Marketing Whitefish Marketing The Workshop 32 - 40 Tontine Street Folkestone Kent CT20 1JU 01303 720288 www.whitefishmarketing.co.
