40% of marketers have a documented content marketing strategy
33% of marketers have a content strategy, but it isn't documented
27% have no content marketing strategy at all.

Don't add to that percentage. Start developing a content strategy that gets results.

The Importance of Content Strategy & Ideation

Content strategy and ideation is a vital part of your content marketing efforts. In fact, 74% of marketers indicated that the top factor for successful content marketing was the value their content provides target audiences. Unfortunately, only 29% of marketers indicated success with their content marketing whether extremely successful or unsuccessful.

Scripted content marketing service can solve the pain points of CMOs and marketers.


Align Content With Your Goals

Need help aligning your content with your business goals? Creating content that aligns with your goals is tricky, not to mention the considerable time and effort into doing so. An effective content strategy allows you to create content where everything you create is a puzzle fitting seamlessly into your overall content goals and business objectives. Creating the sort of 10x type content that resonates with and moves your specific audience to action is an art form and requires a solid, documented content strategy.

Return on Investment

Significant time, effort, and money go into content, or at least it should do. A thoroughly documented strategy is crucial to succeeding with content creation in 2023. How do you know if you're getting a great ROI on your content without documentation? With no documented strategy, it's impossible to know. Documentation lets you see what resources you need, how much it will cost, and how much time is required to ideate, create, publish, and promote the content. Documented content tells you what's needed to create each piece you produce. Oh, and the ability to measure its performance. This is a great recipe for potent, highly effective content which you can continuously refine to streamline your content creation process.



Another massive obstacle to successful content. With so few companies documenting and measuring their content, how can you expect to know if it's successful? It's no wonder, so many businesses struggle to justify a content marketing plan. Documenting and tracking any content you produce tells you what it's doing for your business. This could be; impressions, clicks, or conversions. Measuring these factors determines what each piece of content is doing for your business.

The Pain Points of Content Creation

Let's face it, oftentimes creating content is easier said than done. The problem can go far beyond a mere writer's block.

Difficulty in Creating Engaging and Relevant Content

Producing quality content in 2023 takes considerable time, effort, and resources. Let's face it, beating your competitors and standing above noise. To succeed with content marketing, you need to produce quality 10x content consistently. That's because buyers don't want to spend more than 5 minutes viewing content of any type of format.

This highly informative and comprehensive content must resonate with your audience, outrank your competitors and move readers to action. Dedicated content strategists helo you achieve this without having to sacrifice time in-house.

Lack of Ideas and Inspiration for Content Creation

Knowing how to create an effective strategy is another huge challenge. You know your company vision more than anyone, but producing a content strategy to align with that is a different story.

How do you come up with 6-12 months' worth of content your audience cares about and relate it to the big picture? Not to mention finding the time and being an expert content writer.

If you're experiencing some of these challenges, it leads to believe that the content is even worth it. But considering 71% of marketers state content will become more critical over the next year, if you want to keep up with the competition and take advantage of the incredible benefits of content marketing, content is essential.

Inconsistent Content That Doesn't Align With Brand Values or Target Audience

Consistently producing quality content is one of the biggest hurdles marketers and enterprises face regarding their content game. It comes down to not knowing who your target audience is, including identifying the buyer personas and providing relevant content throughout the buyer's journey through the marketing funnel. About 62% of purchasing decision makers look for case studies and visuals, which they deem most practical.

That's why you need a content schedule. A solid strategy reinforces why you're creating the content and a dedicated content calendar or editorial calendar to work from. It helps you answer why you're posting it, what it's going to do for your business, and on what date. A strategy gives you a solid structured content production schedule.

A content calendar and schedule means you can kiss goodbye to randomly pumping out content whenever the marketing team gets a spare afternoon. Content is here to stay for big businesses and needs to be treated accordingly.

Low Traffic and Engagement on Website and Social Media Platforms

Putting out a huge amount of content does no good if it results in little traffic to your website and social media accounts. Not every social platform is suitable for every target audience, so you must choose wisely. For example, if your specific audience tends to use Facebook (the top social media channel for B2C marketers) on a regular basis, then it's not practical to focus your content marketing efforts on LinkedIn (the top social media channel for B2B marketers). In addition, 80% of marketers use social media for paid distribution of their content.

The Benefits of Content Strategy & Ideation

Content strategy and ideation offers many benefits for brands looking for effective approaches to marketing. The top three goals for marketers using content is increasing brand awareness, building trust, and providing education. Your content can include a wide range of formats, including websites, pillar pages, landing pages, blogs, videos, podcasts, social media accounts, infographics, eBooks, whitepapers, etc.

Increased Brand Awareness & Visibility

Brainstorming ideas and creating high-quality content can work wonders when it comes to increasing the awareness of your brand. Using the right keywords also helps to make your content stand out and increase your visibility. Be sure to take time to conduct keyword and market research so that you can identify keywords more likely to boost your content up in Google search page results (SERPs) and minimize those that may be too competitive. When done right, not only do you increase your chances of being seen on page one, but your contnet is more likely to appear everywhere.

Higher Website Traffic and Engagement

The result of great ideas and quality content with the right keywords an a boost in SERP placement means you create more traffic to your website. Once your visitors have arrived, you have many opportunities to keep them engaged through your content. The longer they stay on your website, the more likely they are to become better acquainted with your brand and eventually take some sort of action, such as subscribing to your newsletter, reaching out for more information or making a purchase. A good content strategy must focus on lead generation and conversion as the end point.

More Qualified Leads and Conversions

Engaged website visitors are happy visitors. When they come to your website, they expect to get something of value in return. This could be anything from learning about new trends in their industry to applying best practices in a new technology. That value extends to both you and your potential customer. When they perceive value in the form of valuable content, that can increase the chance they'll turn into a qualified lead that can be converted into a shell.

Enhanced Brand Image and Reputation

Content is one of many ways—and very easy to create, too!—to add a sense of credibility to your brand. It can make your company or the voice of your brand, a thought leader in your field. Whether through blog articles, white papers, eBooks, video scripts, or other types of marketing, it makes sense to use content to enhance your reputation.

Better Alignment With Target Audience and Brand Values

When generating ideas and creating content, it's not supposed to be a free-for-all. Your content strategy should be aligned with your target audience and brand values. That way, you ensure that what you put out there is value to your particular audience while reflecting upon everything your company stands for and upholds.

It's also essential to ensure that the average time a visitor spends on the website is maximized through engagement with useful content.
