The demand for content writing has increased tremendously in the past few years. Most of us have heard the phrase,” Content is King!” But we are not aware exactly how or why?
Why is content important for your website?
Businesses are competing against each other in the digital marketplace. They make their presence felt online through their websites. While aspects of the website like its loading speed, UI, Ux are important, the content it contains also has a vital role to play.
The design of a website and its ease of use are factors that help attract visitors to the site but it is what you offer your audience on the website that ascertains whether they will stay or not on the website. This is where content has an important role to play.
Content is all over the website. It is content that presents your brand to your audience. It appears in the form of how you explain your products/services or how you tell your brand story in the Home and About Us sections, etc.
So, when someone visits your site they can understand all aspects of your business easily by reading the content on the website. Therefore, you have to ensure that your content is of high quality and unique.
If you want your audience to keep coming back to your website, you must refresh your website with fresh content frequently. This can be in the form of blogs, website content, etc.
Content writing also plays a vital role in all other digital marketing strategies like social media marketing, Email marketing, etc. This is because you use content when you communicate with your audience on these channels. Here again, the content should be such that it hooks the audience.
Therefore, we can easily conclude that content is the backbone of all digital marketing strategies.
There is a common misconception that content creation is just like essay writing where you research a topic and create blogs, etc. But content writing focuses on something called “keywords.”
Keywords and their Role in Content Marketing
Keywords are essentially the search terms used to find a specific product or service on the internet. For example, if someone is looking for web designing services, he may type “best web designing services” or something similar. “Best web designing services” is a keyword. Therefore, the content creator must ensure that this keyword appears in the content.
There is not just one keyword but several keywords that may be used to search for a product/service. Various tools can be used to find relevant keywords for the content.
Keywords are important for content marketing because they help rank your website high on search engines. What this implies is that whenever someone types a certain search word(keyword) on the search bar, your website will be among the top ones that appear and is more likely to be accessed by the user.
