By now, everyone has heard the term search engine optimization (SEO), but do you really know what is means for your company, your website and your marketing strategy?

However, companies often think of SEO simply as adding a few keywords to their website content. While that is part of it and certainly necessary, true and effective search engine optimization has a lot more to it.

Content marketing refers to the strategic creation and use of content to tell your story in a consistent and cohesive matter. It encompasses all of the content your business or organization develops to bring awareness to your company, including website content, blogs, social media, email newsletters, marketing collateral, public relations and more. Generally speaking, content marketing is informational not promotional, and it can be highly effective when used properly.
We’ve all said it – usually referenced in times of great frustration, whether at home or on the job. The work has piled up, the jobs are seemingly endless, and the to-do list has no checkmarks. The words spill out quickly and furiously, as if uttering the phrase will magically change the fate of your current predicament. “I just don’t have the time.” Exhausted and irritated, you move on attempting to determine which of the unfinished items will prove most detrimental in the long run and ponder the best excuse you can provide to cover for it.
It is no secret that people like to talk. Whether about the good or the ugly, word travels fast and far in the age of technology. Don’t be afraid to jump on the keyboard and take control of your story. With social media and blogging, you have the chance to be the narrator of your company’s story! With a little bit of practice and a few extra hands helping you out, you can create content that will tell your story from your own perspective, and help other people see the amazing things that you see.
