While businesses can still drive great results through social media channels, there is a lot of competition for attention. Not only do businesses have to compete with each other for social media attention, but there are also countless publishers who want to keep social media users engaged for as long as possible so they can generate advertising revenue.

Strategy for Social Media, Blogging and SEO

Because social media has matured as a marketing channel, it's important to have a solid strategy in place for using it. To fully maximize the value of social media, it's best to have an integrated strategy that includes blogging and SEO. We're going to cover some of the things to evaluate as you put together this type of strategy:

Find the Right Consistency

When we talk to businesses about their content marketing efforts, one of the most common reasons they aren't seeing the results they want is they're not consistent. Although it's easy to understand why consistency is important, getting content out on the same schedule can be an uphill battle. That's why it's helpful to find the right consistency for your specific business and resources. You should also consider enlisting the help of a content writing service to keep your production on track.

Experiment with Different Timings

In addition to being consistent with social media updates, blog posts and other types of content, it's worth looking at the impact of sharing during different times of the day. Since the audience of your business may be significantly different from others, you may find that sharing at an unexpected time of the day drives the best results.

Know What Your Competitors Are Doing

Copying your competitors isn't going to help you get ahead. That being said, it's worth keeping an eye on what they're doing. If notice a big change or them doing something that stands out, you can see if it makes sense to incorporate into your own strategy. For example, if a competitor suddenly improves their search engine rankings for multiple keywords, it may be time for you to hire a search engine optimization service.

Give Your Content a Purpose

When you're thinking of ideas for different content, it's important to think of the impact each one will have on your business. Whether it's to attract potential customers by sharing useful information or to help close a sale, the important thing is to identify this in advance and then make sure the content is crafted with that goal in mind.

There are a lot of elements that go into creating a cohesive strategy for social media, blogging and SEO. If you're looking for a way to jumpstart your efforts, be sure to take a look at how our social media management and marketing services can help.
