There was a time in Internet marketing, like in search engine optimization (SEO), when the aim of every marketing effort only leads to one thing – to get into the front page. Almost no attention was directed to what happens next after getting that target. With the evolution of social media marketing; link building and online marketing have become a common ground for most Internet marketing experts.
The said social media marketing evolution made it difficult to hit that front page position again. You can’t just push your website up to the top page of social communities. Several algorithm changes and the sheer nature of the social platforms have made it harder to reach that top level. Top marketing experts have learned to spend more time on the evaluating their services to determine the success value of a particular social media strategy.
Success over the World Wide Web, social media, and SEO all point back to one common marketing ingredient: quality content marketing. It has been said over and over for various generations now that ‘CONTENT IS KING.’ Yes, this is an overused phrase but it is still very true.
Well-written material is what wins over people to come back to your site and agree to sign up for newsletters, RSS feeds or other valuable offers you provide. Great material on your website, whether that is an article, video, photos or other type of media, will entice other webmasters or bloggers to link to your website.

Below are some helpful tips that will assist in creating a great blog post and help you perform better in various Internet marketing campaigns. If you are not interested in creating your own material but would rather hire a SEO marketing services agency to handle the strategy & creation, it is still a good idea to understand what processes writers should be undertaking to create a good article.
Everything begins with proper research. To come up with great ideas can be very hard and sometimes intimidating, and research is the key to lessen that burden. You first need to identify what is the core concept for your piece. Focus on what products or services you want to highlight and/or advertise. Many times, you are not advertising any services or products but rather just providing good, relevant, helpful information and establishing yourself as an expert.
Next, you have to think about the related keywords that will connect to your subject matter. Once you’ve identified the topics for your article and have come up with a good listing of keywords, search the sites like Bing, Google, and Yahoo using those phrases. You can add phrases like “top 10,” best,” “how to,” and many more phrases that provide relevant results. Also take note of the related searches for some ideas on good SEO marketing terms to incorporate into your piece.
A lot of ideas will pop into your mind when using this strategy so be sure to write down concepts so you can have ample ideas to choose from.
Presentation with the use of visual graphics, images, and video can be highly effective in giving an article life. People are generally visual individuals and will enjoy reading your material more if it is visually appealing. This strategy is highly applicable online where readers have a short attention span because of their limited reading time and they tend to visit a number of sites at once. They are bombarded with other offers, services and advertisements so your website needs to be very compelling and engaging.
Visual representations will also help on breaking up contents for better comprehension of ideas. This will make your content more inviting and easy to understand. SEO video marketing will also help to boost the rankings of your blog post or website. Not sure how to implement a good video strategy? There are agencies, such as L4 Group, LLC that provide excellent SEO video marketing services.
