There are no shortage of places to create content. From different platforms for your own website like WordPress and Tumblr, to guest blogging and more. Whilst some may have assumed that Medium is just another imitator, in this post I’m going to explain what makes Medium different and how it represents a fantastic early opportunity to get your content seen.
Content is not enough! The look and presentation of what you write counts too. You can have very good content but your readers don’t stick around or share it. Why? Because your content is not engaging or in other words hasn’t been packaged in the correct way. Let’s look at how this can be done.
In order to run a successful Content Marketing campaign, it’s crucial for you to determine what your digital goals are first. This way, your campaigns will be more focussed and targeted, and it will be easier to observe if results are actually being achieved.

Most critically wherever the convergence of SEO and content are becoming more apparent, a content plan is essential in helping to deliver the best results.

Does ‘Like us for your chance to win a Holiday’, sound familiar? How about, ‘The best comment on this blog post wins a brand new iPad’? Well, it should go without saying that if you’re running some sort of competition, you should consider how this is going to be marketed.
More and more businesses are now on board with the importance of content marketing, but its one thing to know how vital it is to your digital strategy and another to actually implement and stick to it as a valuable asset.
Nobody wants to create content that is seen as “Boring” but sometimes that’s exactly what a business needs in order to help convert customers. In my presentation from BrightonSEO I take a look at how the 100 biggest businesses in the UK & US use boring content to earn billions and the lessons you can learn from them.
