Top Content Marketing Trends for 2020

Content marketing is an important aspect for businesses if they want to reach out to prospective customers and improve conversions. 95 percent of users only look at the first page of search results and half of the clicks on SERPs go to the top three results. So, if your content appears on the second page, most people won’t even see it and even if you secure a first-page position, it won’t directly guarantee conversions.

Why and how you should organize your curated content

You already know the impact curated content can have on your business. From marketing efforts to employee advocacy and hiring, content curation is a company’s superpower across the board.

The chaos in the assets you use and rely on every day will make it harder to see the results you want and hit long-term goals. Great content curation depends on a system and structure you understand and can use with eas...

Curating on mobile: the key to content curation consistency

Curating on mobile: the key to content curation consistency One of the biggest challenges of content curation is staying consistent with it.

If you curate every couple of weeks or months instead of multiple times a week, you just won’t see the results you want. This applies to everything in your business, from internal communications and employee engagement through to email newsletters and content distribution. Consistency is key. However, it’s easy to fall off track. As marketers and communicators, we get busy with more urgent tasks and projects. Our work supports product launches and revenue goals, so it can seem impossible to take our eyes o...
