Be consistent in publishing content to be effective

Consistency is one of the key components in an effective content marketing strategy.

contentmktg_artIt’s one thing to write the occasional blog post or article promoting a new product or upcoming campaign. If content is posted infrequently, days or even weeks apart, potential customers take notice.

The effective approach is publishing smart, informative articles and posts that draws the consumer’s attention, retains it and gives the consumer something to pass on to others through social media channels.

Producing good content takes time, and it can be a challenge. But the benefits to a business are substantial and not to be taken for granted.

Consistent content, for one, builds familiarity and trust. It demonstrates that the business can deliver products and services well, that it is interested in engaging the consumer and earning the consumer’s trust.

To be consistent in creating and publishing relevant content means planning ahead. An editorial calendar gives the marketing pro the opportunity to plan content in advance, make note of trends in the business, and take control of its distribution on a daily basis.

Finally, the publishing of consistent content gets the word out to your target audience on a regular basis, leading to more traffic, leads and potential business.

The bottom line for content marketing pros: Effective, engaging content produced and published on a regular basis draws interest from potential customers. Companies that can deliver it in a steady stream will have the means to build upon their brand.
