You will be successful when you not only create valuable and relevant content but also have measurement elements
It is not enough to create a content strategy to define that what you want to share is of value to your audience, that it is entertaining, that it is something that you want to share. How do you know it's actually successful? How do you know that you are using the right formats and channels, and that your audience is moving through a conversion funnel until they're ready to buy from you? The answer lies in the metrics you use.
If you properly measure the impact of your work, your startup will be able to adapt to the market, leverage the results and iterate if necessary, i.e. change strategy if something doesn't work.
Based on a survey conducted by Semrush in 2020, the following considerations were defined: The best metrics for content marketing are organic traffic (76%), prospects (62%), session start or page visits (60%), and conversion Rate (47%).
At G2 Consultores, a consultancy specializing in startups, we recommend:
- To do this, implement a content strategy
- Make sure you know your target audience to define what content you want to give them
- Take into account the formats and channels you plan to use
- Define your KPIs as this is the only way to measure whether you are successful or not
- Make sure you have the person who will implement it. The content strategy should not be carried out sporadically, but should become an activity of your company.
When you create a content strategy, you will get effective results for your startup. However, if you don't know how to do it, we recommend that you contact an expert. You will find that the results are always more fruitful for your company.
