 7 content marketing tips for the startup:

For example, clothes sellers should place different articles for girls and women: how to wear semi-circle skirt, what type of jacket to choose etc. Defining audience differences will facilitate sells.

  2. Check content carefully. Before placing articles should be examined by several people. You need content manager and editor, who will correct content. Trivial misprints, grammatical and logical errors scare visitors away.

  3. Create 'deep' articles. Publishing articles on daily topics is insufficiently. Your content must be useful and differ from text on your competitors' websites. It should contain unique arguments, opinions and examples. Present yourself as an irrespective expert, who want help customers to make a right choice.

  4. Add illustrations into texts. Long articles look boring and unattractive. Dilute them with photo, video and infographics. Customers prefer to see product personally. Give them clear images and stories, that reveal your offer's value.

  5. Be consistent. As a startup company you are still building the brand, its reputation and corporate style. Important: content on your website must match the company's development. Use data, which show your achievements.

  6. Use the correct frequency for publications. One email-newsletter per week is enough, but posts in Facebook or other social media should be published at least 5 times for a week. The more often informative articles appear on your site, the more users' trust you will obtain.

  7. Do not publish articles for quantity. If you don't have unique ideas and valuable data right now, wait until they will appear. Long-expected profound texts 'outshoots' better, than uninformative frequent articles.

Content plays a basic role in business growth. It does not matter, where you publish articles – on your own website, partners platform or in social media. Content works as a bridge, that connects company with target audience.
