      Getting Content To Cut Through The Noise

      Content marketing has taken the world by storm over the last decade. Every year we see companies ramp up their content marketing efforts in order to connect with their audience. In fact, 75% of marketers plan to increase or significantly increase their content marketing budget in 2016. This growth in content leads to one common problem though: how to reach an audience through all this noise? 

      Bryan Kramer has one answer: influencers. As readers we gravitate towards content and writers that stand out from the rest, and give more thought to what influencers have to say because we hold their expertise in high regard. In his post, Kramer blogs the following insight:

      You can make your message count, even in a noisy, content-rich environment, if you know your audience. Take time to learn what drives your key clientele and select the right influencers who are capable of carrying your message to the masses. 

      This message rings true not just for influencers, but content in general. Think hard about what your audience wants to read/watch/listen to—they're the ones who determine the success of your content. Curata's Content Marketing Pyramid Ebook is a great resource for creating an effective strategy for content, while Bryan's full post below will kickstart your influencer search.

      10 Killer Social Media Advertising Hacks For Content Marketers

      Let’s start with the bad news first. It’s tougher than ever to get content noticed.

      Changes to Google search results pages have further obscured content organically, especially on competitive commercial searches. Meanwhile, paid search costs per click (CPCs) are at all-time highs in established markets.

      Organic reach in social media? It’s pretty much dead. Half of all content gets zero shares, and less than 0.1 percent is shared more than 1,000 times.

    14. Know the Difference Between Digital Storytelling and Digital Selling

      Know the Difference Between Digital Storytelling and Digital Selling

      It's crucial for content marketers to be skilled at storytelling, so it's perhaps ironic how often it's something they struggle with. 

      For marketers adapting to content marketing it can be particularly hard to break out of an egocentric, product-focused mindset, and recalibrate into an audience-centric mindset that offers genuine insight and value to customers.

      Carla Johnson at Type A Communications believes the best content marketers who consistently tell a great story through digital channels utilize different ways to give it dimension and make it richer. 

      Where I think brands begin to step outside their “customer success story” comfort zone is when they start to produce stories that are actually tangential to the brand. There is a context connection to the brand, but the stories aren’t about the brand, they’re not about their customers, etc. They’re about real people, doing real things, and tangentially connected to the brand. They draw people in because the content is cool, inspiring, surprising, meaningful, and the viewer then has the experience of discovering “oh, wow, BRAND X was behind this content.” It’s these contextually related, but unexpected, stories that I think create experiences that have the opportunity to be engaging in surprising ways.

      Trying to communicate to an audience in your voice only, about your products and services only, and striving to be the sole source of content on your chosen topic just doesn't work. Being subtle is actually the more powerful way to gain people's attention—and most importantly—trust. Stop Egocentric Marketing is an eBook with powerful lessons on the difference between storytelling and selling, while Johnson has 14 experts offer their insights about storytelling in the link below.
