There is a lot of potential in content marketing. It is one of the best methods of marketing to come out of the internet age. However, done poorly or half-heartedly, it can result in a lot of frustration. Here are three signs that your content marketing strategy is in need of a rework.
It is one thing to have the best content in the world; it is quite another getting people to find it. The first step is to follow basic SEO. The second is to gain an understanding of what channels work for promotion in that industry. Think like an end-user looking for this content, and then promote it on those channels.
A website that shows the exact same material and page layout to every visitor will not inspire brand loyalty. A survey found that sites that personalize web content saw an increase in conversion as high as 19%. Sites need to personalize content and recommendations to the individual user. Personalization can take many forms, but most often the changes are based on location, the device, time of day and previous visits.

One common mistake made by marketers is self-promotion. The content should be mostly educational and of practical use to the visitor. It should only be slightly promotional. It should address their concerns and provide solutions related to your products and services.
