📌 Ignoring Content Marketing Will Cost You Sales-
Successful content marketing campaigns generate up to 7.8 times more website traffic! 🤔 Full disclosure, social media managers hire me to write blogs for their clients. But don’t take my word for it.
“Marketing statistics show that long-form content, somewhere between 800 and 1,600 words, generates the best results. Not because of the word count, exactly, but because of the extra time and effort you have to put into it. With longer content, you need to do more research, add more backlinks, and increase the chances of having your blog post backlinked, in return. Google’s algorithm update takes these things into consideration, and as a result, long-form content is currently the way to go to improve SEO.” – Strong Social

“To make your marketing messages more authentic, let your customers market your products on your behalf. This is what user-generated content (UGC) is all about: building authenticity and engaging your top customers by showcasing their content on your Page.” – Lilach Bullock, guest writing for Andrea Vahl .com
