If You Want Your Content to Generate Leads and Revenue, Read On...
As the Internet continues to replace traditional media, a simple truth is emerging.
Companies that ignore content banish themselves to the wastelands of the Web. Companies that consistently create targeted and extremely valuable content will send more traffic to transactional pages where customers pull a credit card out of their wallet or call to enquire about doing business with you.
Very, very few companies are making the effort to create top quality content and this means there's a window of opportunity for businesses that invest in superb content. These companies will:
- Dominate organic search results.
- Turn more readers into buyers.
- Increase conversion.
- Keep readers on their website... longer.
- Keep readers from their competition.
- Enhance their brand.
- Build larger databases faster.
Content complements and augments the direct response copy you'll find on landing pages, squeeze pages, and product pages. For example, if the ‘free report’ on a squeeze page provides valuable information, opt-ins will increase. And when the content in the report delivers on the promise, then it will motivate more prospects to take the next step in the sales process.
Content directs readers to transactional pages where persuasion, using direct response copywriting, can take place.
The stronger the content, the higher the conversion.
In the direct marketing environment, content includes:
- White papers
- Special reports
- Email marketing
- Digital and traditional newsletters
- FAQ pages
- Social media content
- Online articles
- Case studies
Content is copy that's educating more than selling...but it MUST sell and motivate readers to buy.
Content educates. Content keeps people returning to your site. And research shows it can take up to seven visits before a website visitor buys or takes the next step in the sales process.
How to create compelling content that keeps readers reading…and buying
Content in today’s direct marketing environment combines direct marketing, imagination, accuracy, and education. While direct response copy is the salesperson, content is the professor providing a powerful lecture to a room of rapt students.
Seven keys to creating compelling and profitable content...
- Get into the soul of the prospects. What’s really important to them? Which problems can you solve?
- Be current…content tied to current events is fresh and exciting.
- Do the homework. Use quotes. Find the facts. Be specific.
- Orient the content for the scanner, the person who looks at the pictures, and the person who will read every word. Make it look like TIME or Sports Illustrated.
- Find stunning photos and avoid the temptation to use cheap stock photography.
- Tie the content to a strong call to action and a landing page so you measure results.
- Make sure the content complements the marketing strategy.

It’s a rare combination. And this combination of experience is currently producing measurable results for clients around the world.
