Create Charming Content
Content writing is more than creating engaging copy, it is handpicking interesting and engaging topics that are relevant to both the time you are posting and the audience you are connecting with! Having an up-to-date content schedule is a must for growing your social media presence and audience – make sure you have content planned in advance and use popular content management tools like Buffer to ensure your steady stream of content can flow without any hiccups.
Overall, whether you are trying to reach out to new audiences, write educational content or sell a product, content and copy are invaluable weapons in your marketing arsenal, when utilised correctly that is! So get planning and drafting, and think about how you can use your content to help your customers and readers make more informed online decisions – or in other words, buy your service or product!
Become Bloggy Brilliant
Blogging as a platform and means of communication is often overlooked, viewed as a time-consuming commitment that gives very little in terms of reward. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth – if your website is the heart of your business, then your blog is the blood that keeps it pumping. It is what draws new users to your site, and can be an invaluable trove of information. You just need to put the work in.
The importance of blogs is directly linked to a little something called keywords. Keywords are the secret ingredient in a marketing strategy and will allow you to rank higher in Google search results. 15% of all searches made on Google every day are new

Quality, authentic content with good keywords can be the key to increased page views.
The world of SEO can be a confusing one, however, it is worth persevering with – like most things in life, the more work you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it.
Before you can start improving your SEO, you need to understand what content people are and aren’t searching for online. Once you know what people are looking for this week, month, or in a certain location, you can then start to tailor your content to match the words – or keywords – that they are searching for. Start including these phrases in your blog posts, or within your website copy and watch as you slowly start to climb the SEO ranks.
We don’t scroll past the first page of Google, and we doubt you do too, so getting your business or page to that number 1 spot is crucial for increasing the amount of organic traffic you get!
Foster a Following
There is no shortcut or secret to growing an online following, much like SEO, it takes hard work and dedication. However, we do have a few tips to help you on your way.
Consistency is key, not just in social media but in everything you do! Ensure your style and tone ring true in every piece of content you create. Furthermore, make sure the message you are trying to communicate is appropriate to the platform you are posting on – you’re going to struggle with writing long-form content on Twitter, much like you’ll struggle with getting growth by posting 280-character content on LinkedIn.
Another key pointer – engage with your following and community. Follow influencers who engage with your topic and become a voice of authority in the sector. Respond to your followers and answer their questions and queries. Your followers want to communicate with you, a brand with personality, not a business corporation regurgitating the same old memo. Be creative and have some flair, the rest will follow (get it)!
