Do you find yourself thinking you know what Content Marketing is for your Internet business?

I have heard it said that content marketing encompasses all marketing formats that involve sharing content that is appealing to your current and prospective clients.

— Your motivation behind the content marketing you send out is to educate your prospective and current clients about your brand and to show you as a thought leader and industry expert.

Makes sense. And, sounds easy, right?

My own business coach reminds me that fresh and quality content is essential for your blog sites’ rankings and for attracting and engaging our target audience. So, you will want to ensure that you are writing high quality, educational content that is both engaging and optimized for the search engines.

Did you know that you may have high bounce rates if:

— Your content is boring, not in line with your business efforts and kept fresh.

Oh, and, I know that you know – It is imperative that a blog continually has new, relevant content in order to keep the search engines as well as your target audience engaged.

Show the Carrot

Instead of threatening to prevent people from commenting, you may want to consider giving them a positive incentive to comment.

For instance, you could put some lower bound on the number of comments you must receive before you will create another post.
Example:
You might say that you will only post after you have received at least 30 comments from readers.

With this said, it is important that you follow the response to this policy over time. Make sure that readers aren’t simply posting “good work” or “nice post,” but instead are actively participating. Otherwise, this system will not work and you may need to switch to something else. Read more

One of my favorite ways to add quality, topic related content to a blog is with PLR. If you don’t know what PLR is, let me fill you in on this wonderful little thing. As a Business Coach and in my Free Email List Building Mini-Course, I talk about this and help understand the valuable uses for you own particular business.

PLR content is created specifically for those who don’t have the time, skills or desire to create their own content on a consistent basis. You can find articles, blog posts, reports, recipes, marketing materials, and even web design PLR on the Internet. Someone else writes it and sells it. You buy it and have the ability to use as you see fit – for the most part. Most PLR sites do have rules to what you can and can’t do with the PLR once you purchase it, so be sure you review those before buying.
