Creating a Content Strategy for Awareness Success
Raise your awareness and share your uniqueness with the world.Amit Ray
It’s time to talk about “Content”.
Surely you’ve heard about content calendars, content strategies, content creators, content schedulers, and the list goes on. With all the buzz around social media and digital content, it’s important to take a look behind the curtain to see what goes into making great content.
So, what is content then?
Content by definition is any information (imagery, audio, blogs, videos) that have been created for a specific purpose either to entertain, educate or persuade a target audience.
Reviewing your current content creation process is important because it’s not just one thing that makes great content stand out from the rest, it’s the culmination of a lot of smaller steps that lead to making content people love and find valuable.
To make great content you need to first have a proper strategy in place, to help define your goals, create customer personas and understand how your target audience consumes, saves or shares information on each platform. Once you know how a target audience is likely to interact with different content, you can start the content creation process.
A good content creation process asks questions. Once you know who you intend to make content for, you need to know why you are creating it; is it for customer education, to show off your expertise, or other marketing efforts? Researching what your customers want to know about a specific topic and then creating content for them is a smart way to draw their attention to your content.
Enhancing your content through good Design & Copywriting
Basic human biology isn’t difficult to understand, we are all visual individuals. The neurons in our brains responsible for visual processing far outnumber some of our other senses. It would make sense then that good design should be a priority when it comes to creating content.
We’ve all spent time on social media, scrolling through our feeds, as our attention jumps from one post to another. It’s our job as marketers (whether you’re a brand or a personal account) to design content that makes the viewer pause and take note of what they’re looking at.
Design is about more than just color and typography. It’s about understanding the impact that a consistent and well thought out theme will have across an overall online presence. Good design invokes a sense of professionalism or trust in a brand.
Using good graphics, contrasts, scale, balance and generally keeping it as simple as possible while still adding enough of an impact to make someone stop and say “I’d like to know more”.
Once you have a great design that has been optimized for social media, it’s time to turn your attention to an equally important piece of the content puzzle: Effective and thoughtful copywriting can make a campaign successful, drive traffic or even boost brand engagement.
A brand’s tone should reflect their values, personality and convey their overall image. Paying close attention to what you are saying and how your target audience might receive your message, is a powerful strategy in driving customer behavior and turning your content into more than just “another post”.
