Content marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) go hand-in-hand. Keyword use forms the base of a strong SEO strategy. These keywords are the terms online searchers use to find your content. Incorporating them strategically throughout your content signals the search engines to rank your website for the same.

Know your audience

Content marketing is all about attracting the right audience — that is, those who are most likely to engage with your brand and buy your products. But you can’t write content that attracts the right audience until you know your audience.

No need to go out and interview every customer who’s ever done business with you, although that could definitely be helpful. Sit down with your team and create a buyer persona, the ideal customer who’s best served by your products. You’ll want to take into account both psychographic and demographic information and create a buyer persona document that your team can refer to.

Knowing your audience helps you create content that speaks to them as they go through the buyer’s journey.
