Get to know Content Marketing

Content Marketing is all about creating and sharing unique content which people actually want to see. It entails communicating and getting in front of your prospects and customers without going for the hard sell. Done properly it’s a great way to earn trust and credibility thereby attracting new customers and retaining existing ones. Key to its success is producing relevant, reliable and consistent content which can be distributed through a variety of channels including blogs, videos, podcasts, Social Media and digital publications.

As any successful Content Marketing agency will tell you, it’s about having a mix of online content – on your own and others’ websites, as well as on forums and news sites – and offline content with lots of links back to your online presence.

Consumers are becoming increasingly intelligent when it comes to avoiding or blocking traditional marketing activities. They can fast forward adverts on the TV, request not to receive mailshots through the door and skip pages of adverts in magazines. Our Content Marketing services therefore provide a strategic approach to ensure your content is still visible to prospective and existing clients but is subtle enough to educate, influence and effectively change behaviours without using a direct selling approach.

The idea behind Content Marketing is that by providing relevant, informative and frequent content consumers develop a trust and respect for your company which they then reward with new business and loyalty.

The Content Marketing process

1

Research

We begin with a meeting to get to know you, your business, and objectives. With these insights we establish what you wish to achieve, and start to research which forms of content will fit with your objectives and resonate best with your target market.

2

Ideation and strategy

Next, we work on the ideas for your Content Marketing campaign and devise an overall strategy to plan out how it will be implemented. Members of the content, creative, and marketing teams will collaborate to come up with creative yet practical content ideas that meet your business objectives, and decide on which platforms and tactics will be used in the promotion stage.

3

Content creation

Once a winning idea has been agreed and strategy mapped out, the brief is handed to the creative team to create the content for the campaign. Everything from the copy to the design is carried out at this stage in the process, resulting in engaging content that is ready for promotion across the chosen platforms.

4

Promotion

Once the content is signed off and ready to go, we hand it over to the marketing team to spread the message and push it in front of your target audience. Depending on the strategy of the campaign, this could include promoting across social media both organically and through paid ads, placed as content on relevant third-party websites, or promoted through search on your on website.

Frequently asked questions

Content marketing is the description given for the creation and distribution of relevant and valuable content in order to attract a target market to a destination. Content is the collective term used for blogs, articles, infographics, videos and images. Distribution of content can on your own website and Social Media channels or via third-party channels such as ‘influencers’ blogs, online publishers and directories.

It is the job of a content strategist to understand the ‘big picture’ business objectives and develop a content plan which meets this.

Done properly content marketing is a great way to earn trust and credibility thereby attracting new customers and retaining existing ones. Key to its success is producing relevant, reliable and consistent content which can be distributed through a variety of channels including blogs, videos, podcasts, social media and digital publications.

Once you have a fully researched content calendar which meets the business objectives and includes your keywords, good content marketing includes creating original content which is thought-provoking, memorable and engaging – rich with images and videos.

Firstly you need to establish and define your goals, target audience and content channels before setting clear and achievable KPIs (so you know what success looks like). You then assess your current position by reviewing all of your content ‘assets’ such as blogs, videos and images to decide whether you can repurpose or whether you need to create new content. This will enable you to create a content gap analysis and decide which content types will work best. You can then create a content calendar which will plan out your campaign.

Content marketing is all about creating and sharing unique content which people actually want to see. It entails communicating and getting in front of your prospects and customers without going for the hard sell. A content marketing strategy is simply the master plan for your campaign.

I've worked with Cariad over the years and have always been impressed with their approach. I never felt like a customer, I felt like a partner. Even though that project came to an end, the continued contact and support from afar further confirms that Justine and the team have the balance of business and community spirit just right. They deserve the success they and their customers achieve! Richard MorrisCEO TheGivingMachine

We have been working with Cariad for many years. They built and hosted our website well, supported our SEO and the results were great. Recently our needs have changed and we are moving away from working with them, but their advice and work during the transition has been superb! Thank you Cariad and the team for all you do!

Awesome marketing team. Our office is not very technologically abled so is great for them to be able to break the jargon down for us and show where we are doing well and where to improve, always willing to give that little bit more and have had brilliant results on our online presence off the back of their hard work. Highly recommend.

We first started working with Cariad some 5 years ago when both they, and we, were tiny! We have had our original website designed by Justine, as well as our brochures and our business cards. This year, we required a new and up-to-date iteration of all three. The results have been superb! The website has come with the most up-to-date 'responsive' technology making it 'WOW' whether viewed on phone, tablet or PC and the brochures and cards are fresh, sharp and easily identifiable with the presentation of the website.
