The article addresses this question by highlighting 4 key roles of content marketing agencies.
Content Marketing Agency – 4 Major Roles
Pulling off smart strategies
Strategizing is absolutely important for every business. The content marketing agencies, thus formulate some innovative strategies which gives an extra edge to your firm. The agencies will assist you to identify the various customer persona’s. They will also be extremely handy in segmenting your customers according to their needs and interests. With the help of these experts you can develop the roadmap to a superb content plan that addresses all the customer segments perfectly.
Thinking out of the box
For the content to stand out, the content strategy needs to be creative and have out of the box planning. The content can be made animated and engaging by passing it through a collaborative creative process. When the customer and the agency work collaboratively, there is a higher chance to churn out content that is powerful and relevant and which can ultimately be used for lead generation activities.
Creating and producing the content
It might sound easy, but in practice, the actual procedure of creating and producing content is probably the greatest role which a content marketing agency has to fulfil. This is probably the “heavy lifting” of content marketing agencies. With our experience we know that an agency can handle about 50-100% of the content production by interviewing the subject, writing the content in the format of a story (which meets the customer’s interests) and finally completing all the post production details. The resulting content can be thus produced in the form of a blog, an Infographic format, an e-book or even an e-journal.
Keeping the content in sync with SEO standards
With the stringent checks induced by popular search engines, most marketing gurus feel that SEO is absolutely dead. Well, this is definitely not true. SEO in the current stage is just a bit different from what it once was.
At the end of the day, each piece of content you produce needs to be published. Even if your content is terrific, it needs proper promotion. Social Media and SEO make a very strong partnership for blog promotion. Ensure that your Content is optimised with a descriptive title, Meta description, images with captions, proper focus on keywords and so on and then distribute on the most effective Social Media platforms for the client.
While that’s primarily all about the roles and responsibilities of the content marketing firms, these roles may differ from client to client.
All in all, with our effective guidelines you can now evaluate the content centric agencies, better. Good luck with your endeavours.
