Mindshare Labs is a group of highly skilled and creative technology and web experts. We work to establish our client’s online presence in the best way possible. We offer content crafting services to help our current and new clients showcase their brands.
We’ve helped craft websites for hundreds of clients, and now we can help craft the content as well.
Online content must be of high quality, brand oriented, engaging, and help to achieve your goals. To overcome these challenges, we use a standard content marketing process. Our process delivers two primary benefits to our customers. First, it produces sharable and reusable content. Second, it allows us to produce more content that directly benefits you.
1) Content Planning and Research
In our planning and research stage, we specify schedules, topics, content needs, and goals. First, we examine all existing content to determine what we can adapt or reuse. This helps to inform what we need to create or write. The topics we use come from many sources, like keyword research, customer feedback, brainstorming with your team, and investigations into what your competition is writing about.
Once we know what we need to create, we establish a schedule and define a successful strategy. A successful strategy will differ for every business but can include metrics like website visitors, visitor drop-offs, sales, or engagement.
2) Craft and Write
Once we have a solid schedule, a definition of success, and topics to write about, we get to work.
While we craft new content, existing content can be re-used. This can include leveraging your staff’s knowledge. It can include publishing printed materials like info sheets or brochures. We can also leverage existing email campaigns and printed newsletters. Essentially, if you’re communicating with your clients and customers in any way, you should use it online.
Once the content is crafted, we publish on schedule. All of the published content becomes a valuable library of information. Eventually, we can utilize this library by re-posting or using it in multiple ways. This might mean creating an infographic from an existing blog post or writing a blog post based on an instructional video. We want to reuse and leverage all assets in as many ways as possible. This allows us to publish a steady stream of content regularly.
There are a variety of traditional metrics that can be used to determine if the content is performing well. Example metrics include engagement, referrals, social media activity, lead conversion, and sales. However, more importantly, we need to know what type of information your audience craves. So, we focus our analysis on specific content to help us better understand what type, presentation, and schedule works best. Once we know what works, we can adjust the plan and repeat it. Eventually, we’ll end up with a content strategy that elevates your brand and achieves your online goals, whatever those goals might be.
