SEO & The Role of Content Marketing

“Creating compelling and useful content will likely influence your website more than any of the other factors discussed here.” – Google SEO Starter Guide

Once all of your current web pages and blogs are fully optimized for SEO, you’ll see significant rankings increases often 2-30% or more. For keywords where you’re not yet ranking on Google page one’s top 3 results, you will need more content to drive them higher in addition to offsite link building, which we will cover later.

After brainstorming and prioritizing new content ideas, you will have a new content calendar. We recommend that you create at least three new website content items per month that include fully optimized page names, titles and meta descriptions once published.

Professional Copywriting

B2B Website Lead Conversion & Generation

To increase your website’s capacity to generate leads, many often turn to a commissioning new web design. Facelifts can help but only addresses the style of your brand and not its substance.

Savvy marketers know that you can increase traffic to your website with content marketing leveraged by search engine optimization (SEO) and PR to increase leads but that’s only half the battle.

While a creative, professional web design, content marketing, SEO, and PR are all important pieces of the puzzle, converting more website traffic into leads depends more upon how strongly your messaging resonates with prospects.

Upgrade Your Brand Story

We believe your brand should tell a story. It’s one thing to bring prospects to your website using SEO best practices but you need to stimulate their interest so they reach out to you and become a lead.

B2B Storytelling that Cuts Through the Clutter

In a world full of countless, noisy marketing messages vying for our attention from a multiplying list of platforms, many companies mistakenly try to compete with messaging that is louder. HEY! LOOK AT US, LOOK AT WHAT WE CAN DO!

Meanwhile, your prospects are struggling to figure out whether you are a good fit for helping them do what they do. Hey, look over here! Look at what we need…

Brand Story marketing, adapted from sources like Donald Miller’s book, Building a StoryBrand and Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces, reframes the traditional view of marketing, placing the customer at the center of the message rather than the company. By focusing on prospects and their issues, businesses can better capture the attention of their target audiences, converting leads into engaged customers.

Tell Your Prospects a Better Story: Theirs

Tell Your Prospects a Better Story: Their Story

Are you leading with the blah, blah, blah in your marketing? Yawn.

Do you want prospects to see you as just another vendor or a trusted business advisor?

Many companies make the same mistake in their messaging and branding: they lead with their products and services, features and benefits. You know Sandler preaches against this, so why is it so… everywhere in marketing? It’s the same tired story. Prospects have heard it so many times… blah, blah, blah. It’s just noise to them.

Problems Solved vs. Features & Benefits

Lead with the problems you solve and the people you solve them for instead – and you’re likely to find prospects who want to share their problems with you. Because it’s their story you’re really telling.

We’ve adapted elements of Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces and Donald Miller’s Building a StoryBrand to help you create B2B brand story messaging that puts your prospects first,

The Formula for Headline Success

Sean Parnell - Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Tested Advertising Methods by John Capbles

The book Tested Advertising Methods by John Caples is an all-time classic and must read for all marketing professionals.

Though first published in 1932, the fifth edition has been updated so that its even more relevant today and, in our opinion, is relevant for every blog post title and meta description, email campaign subject line and preview test, Google AdWords and other pay-per-click ads, company tag lines, as well as in today’s advertising headlines.

Why is this book so good? Because it takes a simple and powerful approach to writing headlines and other copywriting that generates leads and other results.

3-Step Approach to Headline Creativity

For example, here are John Caples’ three-step approach to creativity:

  1. Capture the Prospects Attention: nothing happens unless something in your ad, your mailing, or your commercial makes the prospect stop long enough to pay attention to what you say next
  2. Maintain the Prospect’s Interest: keep the ad,

5 Common Mistakes Made by Content Marketing Agencies

Sean Parnell - Monday, July 22, 2019

How Content Marketing Agencies Fail Their ClientsContent marketing is the foundation of inbound lead generation. When part of a strategic marketing plan leveraged with search engine optimization (SEO), content marketing can dramatically increase thought leadership, inbound lead generation, revenue and profits.

Effective content marketing can generate ROI of at least 300% within 9-18 months, sometimes sooner. Unfortunately, ineffective content marketing is more common, can cost several thousand per month and may only result in a handful of leads. How can you tell the good from the bad so you don’t waste a lot of time and money?

Here are five common mistakes made by content marketing agencies, and how to avoid them.

Mistake #1: Content in a Vacuum

Any content marketing agency who guarantees they can boost your online ranking with content alone is telling you a tired story. With over 409 million people viewing more than 20 billion pages each month on WordPress sites alone,

A Better Way to Market Your Brand & Accelerate B2B Sales Growth

Sean Parnell - Monday, March 18, 2019

So many companies make the same mistake: they lead with what they sell and why they’re good at it. While this may sound counterintuitive, leading with who you serve and what problems you solve resonates with prospects and customers in a far more powerful way – especially when you craft a compelling story around the needs of your clients.

Messaging that Doesn’t Put the Solution Before the Problem

The problem with the traditional approach to messaging is that it only works if the products, services and solutions you sell align exactly with what your prospects think they need. What if they don’t know what they want? What if they’re wrong? What if they’re not even aware your solutions exist?

Unless they are experts in your field, which is unlikely, your prospects are self-prescribing and are likely to be wrong,
