A savvy marketer will be looking ahead to the upcoming year and developing a digital marketing strategy to stay ahead of the competition and boost brand awareness.


With so many changes that occurred at the end of 2018, it’s important to revamp your strategy and account for current trends, strategies, and technologies to maximize your efforts.


Here are the biggest digital marketing trends leading into 2019:


Topic Clusters


Search engines are now favoring clusters of content that surround a particular topic, as opposed to keywords. If you want to stay at the top of the search rankings, you need to develop these content clusters that link to one another.


To do this effectively, you need a broad topic outline that covers the most pertinent subcategories. Then, the surrounding content should have specific, long-tail keywords that connect back to the original outline with the same keyword.


This boosts your overall performance since any page performing well will result in the entire cluster performing well. This moves you further and further up the rankings.


In addition, choosing topics in which you have proven subject matter expertise or knowledge will give you an even better ranking, since search engines are now prioritizing the value and relevance to the user.


Shorter Video Ads


Internet users have much shorter attention spans than they once did, so it’s possible to lose a viewer with a long video that would’ve worked a few years ago. Audiences tend to engage with shorter ads, such as under 10 seconds, so you’re also getting more for your efforts.

Businesses are more likely to use shorter video ads in the coming year, so you want to work these into your strategy to ensure you stay with the current trends.




Chatbots are becoming more popular, due to their ability to address basic customer service needs and help businesses interact with more customers. Chatbots also create two-way communication between your audience and your business, which improves your customer satisfaction and your response time to messages. Both of these aspects will boost your search engine ranking.


Chatbots have a reputation for providing negative user experience, leading many businesses to hesitate to include them in their marketing strategy. Overall, however, customers are pleased with the use of chatbots and the ability to access information 24/7, so there’s no reason to hold back on this trend.


Chatbots also operate in Facebook messenger often, which has a click-through rate of 80 percent. This offers incredible potential for how a chatbot can lead to more sales for your business.




Blockchain is quickly becoming a necessity for most industries, but one of its most overlooked potentials is in marketing.


With the poor attention span of many internet users, it’s more difficult to draw attention from content and keep your audience engaged. Blockchain can be used to incentivize customers to watch advertisements and engage in some way, whether it’s sharing, tagging, liking or commenting, through a Basic Attention Token (BAT). This technology breaks up the monopoly of digital ads to trade on the value of online attention and engagement and reward the audience that’s willing to interact.


Influencer Marketing


Social media influencers are achieving more influence in recent years, gaining significant followings on multiple social media platforms. Social media isn’t new, of course, but its reach is continuing to grow. Positioning yourself with the right social media influencer can make all the difference.


In the past, businesses were able to have influencer endorse products openly, but consumers are becoming more aware and are less receptive to this marketing tactic. Because of this, a subtle approach is needed to gain the benefits of a social media influencer.


Businesses with successful social media influence develop mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with influencers, so both receive more organic endorsements. These relationships not only provide you with a steady outlet for your promotions, but it also makes influencers less likely to abandon your brand.




Fields like advertising, marketing and sales have a negative connotation, with the belief that these representatives are only out for their own interests, using deceptive and aggressive tactics to get sales.


As a result, consumers are more skeptical and reluctant, as well as being more difficult to impress. The easy access to reviews and testimonials also gives them more information about a product or service’s strengths, and more importantly, its weaknesses.


Now, businesses are addressing this issue with transparency, openly admitting its own shortcomings, faults and negative feedback to show loyalty and dedication to customers. They’re also encouraging two-way communication on a public forum to not only build more trust with a specific customer but also to show their efforts to other potential customers.


Mobile Optimization


Though it may seem obvious, mobile optimization is one of the most important aspects of your digital marketing strategy to address in 2019. Though many businesses already work toward mobile-friendly sites, more and more users are switching to mobile. Google is even prioritizing mobile-friendly sites in search rankings.


With so many users going mobile, you can’t afford to lose a follower because of poor optimization. Small issues, such as links too close together, a poor zoom function or text that’s too small can be all it takes for a customer to abandon your site and move on to the next.


Be sure to check your site’s mobile user experience and make any adjustments you need to create a flawless user experience.


Voice Search


Voice search is on the rise, thanks to personal assistance devices like Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri. Nearly one-third of the 3.5 billion searches performed each day are voice searches, which use natural human speech patterns to determine the searcher’s intent.


If you think you can use the same strategy for voice search, however, think again. Voice search differs from a desktop or mobile search in that you get fewer results. If you want to be one of the sites that comes up, you need to tailor your SEO strategy for voice search.


Voice recognition technology is only expected to improve and become more popular as well, which has the potential to disrupt marketing altogether. User experience and SEO have been the main focus of most marketing campaigns, but these aspects become irrelevant with a short search and no search results screen.


While there’s no clear answer to tailoring your strategy for voice search, a bit of brainstorming to understand the nuances of the human voice. How users tend to phrase voice searches and what types of phrases are prioritized is worth your effort.


Artificial Intelligence (AI)


Artificial intelligence has become a hot topic in marketing recently, and though many are still unsure of its applications and limitations, it’s starting to find its place in marketing campaigns.


A widely implemented form of AI is chatbots, which improve customer service with lower costs and fewer resources. They’re also quicker than humans and offer targeted, personalized services to any customer at any time.


On a larger scale, the same capabilities of AI that make chatbots so effective can be applied to many aspects of marketing, such as forecasting, personalization, segmentation, and data analysis. The possibilities are truly endless, so it’s best to get on board before AI takes the marketing world by storm.


Final Thoughts


Marketing trends come and go, some of which reshape the industry and others that may just fade into the background. If you want to be successful in your marketing efforts year after year, it’s important to be able to identify the upcoming digital marketing trends and stay ahead of the competition.



A few days ago, I was watching a 2005 episode of Doctor Who with my nine-year-old. He saw a strange artifact in a character’s hand. “What’s that thing?” he asked. “An iPod,” I responded. “It’s like a smartphone, but it could only play music and had a black-and-white screen. No, no touchscreen. It held a LOT of music, though! Like hundreds of CDs! Okay, so a CD is…” The point being: You kids need to get off my lawn. Okay, the actual point being: Technology has changed fast in the past decade, and what used to be mind-blowing is now laughably obsolete. That’s doubly true in B2B marketing. We have the tools and tech to do amazing, iPhone-XS-Max-quality B2B lead generation. But a lot of us are getting iPod results instead. Ready to evolve past the monochrome screen and the click wheel? Here’s how.


How to Refine Your Marketing for Better B2B Lead Generation


#1: Get a Better Audience Match


The ability to target ads is more granular and sophisticated than ever. You can segment your audience on everything from demographics to pop culture preferences to shopping history. It’s easy to choose who you’re going to target — but first you have to know who is most valuable and why. That knowledge is at the heart of better content, smarter amplification, and ultimately more leads. If your lead gen efforts aren’t connecting, start by getting a more accurate picture of your buying audience. Use social listening. Ask them questions. Talk to sales and customer service to refine your personas. Keep in mind, too, that determining who is your best audience means determining who isn’t. Pursuing an irrelevant audience won’t do either of you any good.


#2: Boost Content Relevance


The next step is to bring your content strategy in line with your newly-redefined audience’s wants and needs. Creating best-answer content begins with SEO research. You have to know what your audience is looking for, and how they’re looking for it, to make something worth finding. Modern SEO research is less about pure search volume and more about topic clusters and searcher intent. For example, the phrase “financial management” can mean financial services like hedge fund management. Or it could mean the office of finance in a business, what accountants and CFOs do. If your business does the latter, it doesn’t help to pursue keywords for the former, regardless of search volume. As you plan your calendar, pay close attention to the magic convergence of your industry knowledge, your unique insights, and your audience’s needs. Be hyper-relevant and hyper-valuable with your content, and you’re far more likely to bring more leads into your nurturing track. [bctt tweet="Be hyper-relevant and hyper-valuable with your #content, and you’re far more likely to bring more leads into your nurturing track. @NiteWrites #B2BLeadGen" username="toprank"]


#3: Earn Attention with Next-Gen Content


How can you get people to notice and engage with your hyper-relevant content? B2B marketers need to think beyond standard eBooks, blogs and white papers. What I call next-generation content includes:




Strong visual interest


Multimedia elements


Case in point: This AI in Finance asset from our client, Prophix. You could get the same information across in a static eBook, of course. But we have found the interactive and multimedia elements have made people spend far more time with the asset. And they’ve been beating benchmarks for conversions, too. In fact, within the first 90 days after launch, we saw a 642% increase in asset engagement and a 10% conversion rate to the asset.

#4: Get in Front of Your Audience


All of the above will get you some stellar content. But, of course, smart promotion and amplification is what turns it into actual marketing. Target your most relevant audience with amplification and you’ll be more likely to get the folks who will convert into leads. Part of amplification is organic — your social media feeds, your built-in SEO. Add in paid amplification to those highly targeted audience segments and you’ll make more of a splash. Our agency adds a third ingredient to the mix: Influencer marketing. We co-create content with influencers to make something they’re proud to help us share. That brings value to their audience, and builds credibility and trust that can help improve lead capture. As our CEO Lee Odden often says:


If you want your content to be great, ask influencers to participate.

#5: Fill in Gaps in the Journey


Each piece of content should be the beginning of a journey that ends in a conversion. It’s important to have content at the ready for every stage of the funnel. Each piece should end with a next step that’s not only logical, but relevant. For example, there’s no value in sending an email subscriber links to content they’ve already read, or a gated asset they’ve already downloaded. The old days of a single newsletter for your entire mailing list are gone. It’s important to segment your subscriber list, and to build more complex nurturing tracks that feel more personal. [bctt tweet="Each piece of #content should be the beginning of a journey that ends in a conversion. @NiteWrites #B2BLeadGen" username="toprank"]


#6: Optimize for Conversion


When you have people digging your excellent content, taking next steps, staying engaged, the final step is to remove every potential obstacle to conversion. Reduce friction whenever and wherever you can:


Reduce the number of boxes on forms


Eliminate multiple form fills (if they download one gated asset, store the info for the next one)


Cut down copy on landing pages (replace with eye-catching visuals)


Tighten up your CTAs and be specific: (Read this / Watch this / Register now)


Add CTAs earlier in content


These are just a few ways to remove friction. A/B testing will yield further candidates for Conversion rate optimization. But it’s important to keep in mind that the actual conversion point is part of a much longer journey. You can make improvements here, and should. But the process of improving lead gen starts all the way back at defining your audience and continues throughout the journey. Read: How Can Marketers Create Stronger Customer Bonds? Focus on Convenience, According to Shep Hyken

Seo Là Gì?


Đầu tiên ta sẽ hiểu Seo là viết tắt của Search Engine Optimization – Tối ưu hóa công cụ tìm kiếm


Tối ưu :Tối là tối đa, ưu là ưu việt, là làm tốt nhất, hoàn thiện nhất, về nhiều mặt, đáp ứng các tiêu chuẩn mà công cụ tìm kiếm đưa ra.


Công cụ tìm kiếm : Là các trang web dùng để tìm kiếm như google, yahoo, bing….. nhiệm vụ là thu thập dữ liệu – crawl , thông tin từ các website.


Người làm seo sẽ bằng các phương pháp mũ trắng, đen, xám ( tùy cách gọi ) …để đưa website của mình lên đứng số 1 trên bảng xếp hạng. Và chúng ta hãy cùng tham khảo quy trình, hướng dẫn cơ bản dưới đây nhé.


Quy Trình Cách Tự Học Và Làm Seo


hướng dẫn cách học và tự làm seo


Trước khi bước vào làm seo thì bạn cần biết qua khái niệm cơ bản và nòng cốt nhất.


Seo là tối ưu nhiều mặt trong web tìm kiếm (VD là google). Google dựa vào hàng ngàn tiêu chí để xếp hạng website của bạn. Nhưng vẫn có 200 tiêu chí chính để đánh giá 1 website như sau đây.

Google Penguin


Google Pirate


Google HummingBird (Chim ruồi)


Cập nhật Mobile Friendly


Cập nhật Google Possum


Google Fred

Khi đã nắm vững các lý thuyết trên thì ta sẽ bắt đầu làm seo. Thông thường sẽ có 2 công đoạn chính sau :


Phần 1 : Làm Seo Onpage




Bao gồm tất cả những việc để tối ưu bên trong website


Thứ bạn cần chú ý đầu tiên là :


Dao diện website đẹp, load nhanh , tăng trải nghiệm người dùng


Tối ưu dao diện mobile ( google thực sự quan tâm và lập chỉ mục cho mobile)


Thêm thẻ Analytics


Thêm thẻ Google Search Console


Thêm thẻ ngôn ngữ thẻ Hreflang, Meta Language ( để xác định mục tiêu seo theo vị trí địa lý và ngôn ngữ , ví dụ Việt Nam là , Đức là…….


Chứng chỉ https


Thêm file robots.txt


Thêm sitemap.xml


Xác định chủ đề : Nếu không phải là website tin tức bạn nên xác định theo một chủ đề xuyên suốt thì sẽ thật sự tốt. Bạn nên xây dựng 1 cấu trúc website, bạn có thể tìm hiểu về cấu trúc Silo, Topic cluster…. Và còn rất nhiều việc để tối ưu 1 website, bạn sẽ dựa vào 200 yếu tố xếp hạng của google ở phía trên để tự đánh giá và hoàn chỉnh.


Topic cluster


Làm onpage chủ yếu sẽ nhắc tới phần làm content: Content không chỉ đơn thuần là nội dung dạng bài viết, nó còn là dạng ảnh ,video…. Nhưng với một nội dung dạng bài viết bạn sẽ cần quan tâm:


Thẻ Title : Tiêu Đề Bài Viết ( Làm nổi bật nội dung của bài viết và có chứa từ khóa seo trong đó)


Thẻ Meta Description : Mô tả bài viết ( Mô tả ngắn gọi, đầy đủ ý, đúng trọng tâm bài viết)


Thẻ Heading : Là thẻ tiêu đề nhỏ trong bài viết ( thông thường ta chỉ quan tâm từ heading 1 đến heading 6 gọi tắt H1 đến H6)


Hình ảnh : Ở các hình ảnh trong bài viết, bạn cần chú ý có thẻ ALT ( Thẻ này để google hiểu được hình ảnh của bạn nói về cái gì).


Liên kết : Liên kết bên trong website được gọi là internal link. Các liên kết này rất quan trọng nó giúp bot google di chuyển qua lại giữa các bài viết bên trong website, có tác dụng:


Điều chỉnh tỉ lệ anchortext


Cân bằng lực, truyền sức mạnh cho 1 bài viết bất kì bạn muốn seo

Phần 2 : Làm Seo Offpage


Offpage chính là làm những việc bên ngoài website: Bạn có thể đã nghe qua về khái niệm :


Đi backlink : Có nghĩa là mình sẽ kiếm các website, diễn đàn,blog chất lượng để trỏ liên kết (backlink) về website của chính mình như vậy tăng uy tín sức mạnh cho website. Một vài tiêu trí bạn có thể sẽ quan tâm là :


Website đặt backlink


Có nhiều traffic


Có cùng chủ đề


Có ít liên kết backlink out ra bên ngoài ( hạn chế việc mua bán link )


Nội dung content tốt, ít copy ,spin


Website hoạt động lâu năm và tuổi thọ domain cao


Website từ các trang của chính phủ đuôi , của cơ sở giáo dục , trường học


Website có tốc độ index nhanh vào nhiều, gõ site:domain trên google để biết các bạn nhé


Một vài khái niệm bạn có thể quan tâm như :


PBN : PBN là từ viết tắt của cụm từ Private Blog Network, hệ thống các blog, site bạn tạo ra nhằm múc đích seo cho money site của bạn


Guest Post : Là tài khoản khách đăng bài, trao đổi guest post có nghĩa là khách sẽ có thể post các bài viết lên site của bạn và để tên tác giả của họ ở cuối bài viết. Viết trao đổi guest post sẽ đem lại nhiều tín hiệu và yếu tố tích cực cho site ( bởi tỉ lệ spam và mua bán ít)


Blog 2.0 :


Một vài site blog 2.0 bạn có thể chăm sóc hỗ trợ việc seo được tốt nhất.


Blogspot (


WordPress (


Tumblr (


Google Site (


Link Profile : Link từ các hồ sơ mạng xã hội, forum… Các link này thường nofollow nhưng giúp tăng uy tín website của bạn lên rất nhanh. Bạn có thể tham khảo 712 Social ngon sau đây :


Một vài thủ thuật tìm kiếm diễn đàn ( forum ) trên google như :


intitle:”seo” inurl:forum”


Có nghĩa là bạn tìm tất cả các trang có tiêu đề là Seo, và trong url có từ forum. Tương tự sẽ có


intitle:”học” inurl:””


Có nghĩa là tìm tất cả các trang có tiêu đề là Học và trong url có đuôi là


Với cách làm vậy bạn có thể tìm được hết các diễn đàn( forum) chất lượng cùng chủ đề để đi link rồi đó hehehe.


Một vài mô hình đi link để hỗ trợ seo website bạn có thể quan tâm như :


Liên kết bánh xe (Link Wheel) …


Liên kết Kim tự tháp (Link Pyramid) (*) …


Liên kết web (Link web) …


Liên kết sao (Link Star) …


Chuỗi liên kết (Link Chain)


Đi backlink được coi là một công việc quan trọng của seo. Tuy nhiên để tìm nguồn backlink chất lượng thì ko hề dễ dàng, bạn cần đa dạng các nguồn backlink mà mình đi. Đòi hỏi bạn phải mất nhiều thời gian hoặc bỏ money để mua hoặc trao đổi nữa đấy nhé.


Bạn cũng cần quan tâm đến vị trí đặt backlink ( đối với bài viết )


Đối với bài viết thì đặt backlink tại phần content đem đến hiệu quả và nhiều sức mạnh nhất nhé.


Ngoài công việc đi backlink thông thường thì để tăng sức mạnh của website bạn có thể xây dựng Entity ( một thực thể có thật – doanh nghiệp có thật).


Bạn có thể hiểu như sau : Google rất sợ việc đưa nhầm một nội dung của 1 website ma, doanh nghiệp ảo, tin giả, ko uy tín lên mạng, bởi vậy nó ưu tiên và quan tâm đến nội dung được xuất bản từ 1 website địa chỉ doanh nghiệp có thật – uy tín.


Entity chính là làm các việc này ( xây dựng một bộ hồ sơ ,tài khoản trên các mạng xã hội hỗ trợ để đảm bảo rằng địa chỉ doanh nghiệp này là có thật).


Nhưng trước tiên bạn sẽ cần tạo 1 địa chỉ map google cho doanh nghiệp :


Lợi ích thì có thể :


Làm Entity cho website


Seo luôn đia chỉ map ( các dự án như bất động sản, dịch vụ, nhà hàng thì seo map rất hiệu quả)


Ví dụ đây là thống kê hoạt động 1 địa chỉ map trong vòng 1 tháng mà mình đang quản lí


Giả sử nếu map này bán xe ô tô, kinh doanh bất động sản, nhà đất thì với 1,96N người gọi kia bạn sẽ có bao nhiêu tỉ lệ chuyển đổi thành công >>> rất thú vị đúng không nào.


Tạo map và xác thực map trên google hiện nay rất cần thiết.


Mình cũng nhận :


Tạo map mới và xác thực cho doanh nghiệp nhanh tróng trong 24h ( Giá Ibox)


Lấy map có trên bản đồ ( nếu chưa có chủ sở hữu ) ( Giá Ibox)


Tạo và xác minh map hàng loạt, phủ kín bản đồ ( Giá Ibox)


Mọi thông tin và giá liên hệ mình quả fanpage nhé:


Hoặc qua địa chỉ fb :


Khi bạn tạo nhiều map mình sẽ có áp dụng giá tốt và ưu đãi đấy nhé. Map tạo nhanh tróng, uy tín,chất lượng, chính chủ full quyền.


Các công cụ hỗ trợ seo, plugin thường dùng


Tiện ích trên trình duyệt browser


AddToAny ( Giúp bạn chia sẻ bài viết mới xuất bản lên các mạng xã hội )


Mozbar ( Kiểm chỉ chỉ số DA – Domain Authority , PA- Page Authority)


Seoquake ( giúp bạn kiểm tra phần tối ưu trong site như thẻ tiêu đề, mô tả, mật độ phân bố từ khóa, liên kết internal , liên kết external…


Nofollow extensions ( tiện ích giúp bạn kiểm tra liên kết là dofollow hay nofollow


Spineditor ( kiểm tra thứ hạng từ khóa, kiểm tra trùng lặp nội dung….)


Web Developer ( kiểm tra đầy đủ các thẻ heading, mô tả ảnh và nhiều thứ hay ho)


Plguin seo cho wordpress


(Mã nguồn wordpress được sử dụng phổ biến hiện nay). Các plugin rất cần thiết sau đây bạn sẽ cần đến là :


Yoast seo ( Hỗ trợ tối ưu seo toàn diện )


Rank Math ( giống với yoast seo ). Nhưng theo mình bạn nên chuyển sang Rank Math vì Rank Math có nhiều tiện ích với tính năng mà yoast seo không có. Bao gồm cả tiện ích chuyển hướng redirect 301, schema, rich snipet, thêm thuộc tính nofollow cho toàn bộ các liên kết ra ngoài, seo local, amp,….


Really Simple SSL ( đồng bộ giao thức https cho toàn bộ các page trên site)


WP Fastest Cache ( tăng tốc website nhờ tính năng lưu cache cho khách truy cập cũ)


Simple Author Box ( Thiết kế và tùy chọn thông tin phần tác giả, google rất chú trọng nội dung xuất bản có thẩm quyền từ tác giả có uy tín, bởi vậy phần tác giả bạn cũng cần được quan tâm và chăm chút


Table Of Contents Plus ( Tạo mục lục cho website , vừa giúp site bạn trở nên đẹp ,gọn gàng mà còn giúp hiển thị sitelink trên kết quả tìm kiếm rất hiệu quả)


Post Views Counter ( Thống kê lượt view mỗi bài viết cho wordpress)


iThemes Security ( GIúp bạn tăng tính năng bảo mật cho wordpress)


Classic Editor ( Đưa website bạn về giao diện cổ điển dễ chỉnh sửa và sử dụng


Thực ra thì cũng còn khá nhiều plugin và tiện ích nữa cần dùng. Tuy nhiên với mình mình sử dụng những plguin và tiện ích phía trên. Nếu bạn thấy plguin hay tiện ích nào cần dùng hãy bổ sung thêm nhé.


Có thể bạn sẽ thấy một điều lạ lẫm nữa là . Những website chi nhiều ngân sách để chạy ads từ google thì thường có vị trí khá cao ( và như một sự ưu ái nào đó của google ). Quả thật điều này rất đúng, dù google không nói nhưng nó vẫn thường làm như vậy. Trong trường hợp kế hoạch seo của bạn không thành công bạn có thể chuyển hướng sang kéo traffic từ google ads nó vừa làm lợi về mặt doanh số trực tiếp mà cũng hữu ích cho seo.


Bạn có thể tham khảo khóa học về ads sau đây khá hay đấy nhé.

The Conference 2014 didn’t have a main conference theme, but connected ”clusters of topics”. Pictured is the flip side of the printed pocket program guide.



On the first day of 2019, I laid out a series of New Year’s resolutions for content marketers. At the top of the list was creating a documented content strategy. Maybe you came across the post. Maybe you nodded your head while reading that particular item and said, “Yup, I’m gonna do that.” But most likely, you still haven’t yet. I’m not trying to be presumptive, just speaking in probabilities: research tells us that documenting a content strategy has been the subject of pervasive and perpetual procrastination across our field for some time. What gives? Why do we keep putting it off? “Usually procrastination happens because the task seems too difficult,” according to psychiatrist A. Chris Heath, MD (via PsyCom). Makes sense, based on my personal experience. In this case, I think the difficulty and complexity seem a lot greater than they actually are. So, B2B content marketers, today I’m going to try and make both the “why” and “how” of this matter as simple and straightforward as possible. We’ll start with the first part.


Why is a Documented B2B Content Strategy So Important?


There are two primary reasons. First of all, neuroscience has found that we are more likely to accomplish our goals if we write them down. According to an article on Forbes last year from Mark Murphy, there are a couple of psychological factors driving this:


External storage: When your goals are written down, in a tangible and visible form (whether a physical piece of paper or even a digital document) they are harder to ignore. This is why Post-it Notes exist.


Encoding: The actual process of writing something down makes it far more ingrained in our memories. This owes to the generation effect, “a phenomenon where information is better remembered if it is generated from one's own mind rather than simply read.”


So that’s a big part of it. The second component is tangentially related, but has more to do with the collaborative nature of a marketing operation. When you’re trying to keep numerous individuals aligned around the same vision, it’s essential to have a single source of truth that’s accessible to everyone. The above psychological principles come into play from a team aspect — your colleagues will better adhere to a strategy if they can actually see it, and the process of encoding will take place if everyone is collectively involved with documentation — but there are also more basic and practical elements. When your content strategy is documented, you don’t have to re-explain things to people over and over again. You have a central point of reference for various freelancers, contractors, new hires, clients, external business partners, and so forth. It provides a concrete and objective basis for decision-making. You also might spot flaws in your strategy more quickly (for example, an SEO specialist may see something amiss in the documentation and say, “We’ve gotta fix that,” whereas it may have gone unnoticed). Are we all agreed on the value of a documented content strategy? Good. Let’s get one put together.


A Three-Point Checklist for Documenting Your B2B Content Strategy


In the interest of keeping things simple, we’ll flesh this out in high-level fashion. When you cut through all the variables and moving parts, content marketing strategy almost universally nests under three buyer stages: Discovery, Consumption, Action. If our content is going to accomplish anything, it needs to be discovered, it needs to be consumed, and it needs to ultimately drive action (all with the right audiences, of course). Discovery: Who is your target audience and how will they find your content? That first part is arguably the most important in this entire discussion. Who is your audience? What makes them tick? The more specific you can get, the better. When you gain a firm and comprehensive understanding of the people you want to reach — the challenges they’re trying to solve, the questions they’re trying to answer, the channels they tend to use — it can and should guide your entire strategy. This is one foundational area where the documentation process is particularly valuable. Going through the exercise of articulating details about your audience can expose gaps in your knowledge, and force you to challenge existing assumptions. The “Discovery” phase of your content strategy should account for the following:


Who is our buying audience?


What differentiates the various segments and buyer personas?


How can we develop an SEO strategy that aligns with their search behavior?


Which channels do they use?


Who do they listen to and respect in the industry or niche?


What topic clusters or editorial themes will dictate our content direction?


From here, you can build out your editorial plan and start focusing on consumption. Consumption: How and why will people engage and interact with your content? Once you’ve fleshed out a mix of channels and topics that align with your audience, the next step is focusing on engagement. Creating a bunch of content — even if it’s relevant and strategically aligned — won’t do you any good if people aren’t consuming it. Documenting your approach for making this happen will help keep everyone on the same page, while tying consumption to discovery. The “Consumption” phase of your content strategy should account for the following:


How will our content stand out from competitors?


Are we optimizing on all fronts for mobile users?


How will we compel clicks with our headlines, meta descriptions and social messaging?What will be the timing and cadence for publishing?


What tools and technology will you use to plan, publish, and track your content?


How will you respond and interact to audience engagement? Whose responsibility?


Where do organic, paid, and influencers fit in?


With consumption covered, you’re to focus on action. Action: What are your end goals, and how does your tactical mix connect to them? Strategy is defined as “a plan of action or policy designed to achieve a major or overall aim,” so ultimately it all comes down to the outcome. We’ve listed this part last, to keep things chronological, but really you’ll want to start with your objectives and work backward. Your content strategy is a bridge between your purpose/mission statement and your goals. You have to know where you’re going before you can chart a course. The “Action” phase should account for the following:


How will we convert our buying audience into customers?


How will we build and maintain relationships?


What are our key performance indicators (KPIs)?


Where do our benchmarks lie?


How will success ultimately be judged?


What ongoing steps are in place for conversion optimization?


How does every piece of the Discovery/Consumption framework above lead into this piece?


Create a steady stream of qualified traffic at the top, engage them through the middle, and drive action at the bottom. That’s a simple strategic content funnel, and as long as it keeps flowing you’ll be in good shape. Documenting strategy helps everyone in your organization rally around the same structure for making it happen.


Write It Down, Ramp It Up


If you can confidently check all three boxes above, you’ve got yourself a fundamental content marketing strategy that is built for success. There are plenty of extensions and additional elements that come into play, but for the sake of simplicity, this should cover your bases. By documenting all of this, creating external storage and encoding it for your team, you’ll be on your way to full focal alignment, minimizing miscommunications and ambiguities that plague many operations. And if you don’t have time to create that documented B2B content strategy at this moment? Make a note to yourself. Don’t underestimate the power of writing something down.
