investigate the content landscape in-depth. We will map out your existing audiences and create personas to identify your typical users. With the use of specialist analytics tools, we will identify the content assets that are performing best for you and your competitors in terms of backlinks, social shares, organic traffic and conversions. From this knowledge, we can extract popular themes and formats, as well as content gaps.
3)Brainstorm Campaign Ideas
Armed with the insights from our in-depth research, we’ll go into a content brainstorm that often involves many different specialists. With SEO, social media, outreach, account and UX experts on board, we’re able to generate and assess ideas from many different angles.
After an initial session in which no idea is a bad idea, we’ll pick our favourite ideas and decide on their most appropriate format. The Content Strategist on your account will take this selection of ideas into the next phase of the process.
4)Pilot & Refine
Before we start creating your campaigns, we will invest in search intent modelling and pre-outreach to target publications to ensure there is an appetite for them. Ideas that do not make the cut can be discarded, adjusted or refined so that they’ll meet the objectives that you have set out to achieve.
5)Content Strategy & Roadmap
At the end of the process, you as the client will be presented with a proposal of campaigns that will help you meet your content objectives, alongside the research and justification that led up to them. The individual tasks will be laid out in a content roadmap, which maps out the required activities month-by-month
