Audiences today expect more in the way of quality, custom content than they did a few years ago. It is no longer enough to simply put words on a page; those words must pop and engage the target audience. When planning an advertising campaign, integrating online content as part of that campaign must occur, or you will be writing uselessly.
It is usually best to partner with a good content creator before you ever publish your first web page. Many agencies prefer to simply bill you for “content farm” products, but those are no longer acceptable to most clients. They want fresh, invigorating content, and planning for that as part of your entire marketing strategy puts you ahead of the curve. This means engaging the services of a content writer who understands the realities of today’s SEO market and can give you content that will score highly with the search engines as well as with your customers.
Images used to be a large part of content cost, but with new technology quality images are relatively easy to produce and publish. Many companies offer ownership rights to images to their clients for high-quality photos that enhance their brand whether the picture was originally designed for them or not. Of course, you can also invest in a unique image that can come to be associated exclusively with your brand. This is a great ground-floor strategy; even if it is initially costly, a well-chosen image on which you hold the copyright may become the most recognized symbol of your product and lead to further buyer loyalty.
