SEO Content Marketing

Content marketing with SEO is a powerhouse within any modern digital marketing strategy. It’s arguably the most beneficial practice available to us. In fact, it’s the most beneficial way to implement your digital marketing strategy for growth. Content Marketing is, in fact, an SEO practice, if we want to be found in the search engines, Google, Bing etc.

While content is king, of course, we need more than just good great content to achieve that growth we are after. We should remember we need good quality links to our site. However, instead of dodgy Link Building, we use best practice content marketing.

High-level process

Once we publish the content we also implement content promotion strategies for social media and paid promotion. We also need to ensure we have the Inbound Methodologies in place to increase website conversions.

Content marketing high-level process:

  1. Create great content
  2. Promote it effectively
  3. Optimize for conversions

Underlying Methodology

We also need to consider our underlying methodology for Content Marketing. The basis of my SEO Content Marketing Services uses the “Create Conversion Content” SEO methodology, as seen in the diagram.

It’s important to note this is a methodology, not a process. Being the underlying methodology, it can be used as a frame of reference when defining a strategy. During the execution and process of any campaign, it serves as an underlying principle. “The Three Golden C’s System” offers that frame of reference, with its foundations based on the three important factors, Create, Conversion, Content.
