What Is Content Marketing?

Content marketing is all about producing high-quality content that is relevant and useful to your audience. Content also forms a significant aspect of Google’s quality guidelines (known as E-E-A-T (Expertise, Experience, Authority and Trust). It is the proven practice of generating interest in your business and its products/services by creating and sharing relevant articles, videos, podcasts, and other media to engage them.

For this reason, you could say it’s the one core marketing strategy that puts the customer first, and pivots around their needs…

With a major business benefit, of course.

The logic behind content marketing is this. If your business puts out useful content on topics related to what you’re selling, the people who stumble across it – either coincidentally or those actively searching for it – will:

  • Immediate win – Be hooked, with a primed intention to buy or enquire further
  • Long-term win – Come to associate your brand as an authority on the topic and be more willing to seek out and engage with you in the future

Though option 1 is a definite possibility, the scenario of option 2 is where most content marketing lands. The saying amongst marketers, when comparing the goals of content-forward approaches to other results-driven types of marketing such as pay-per-click (PPC), for example, draws a distinction: ‘content resonates, advertising saturates’.

In this way, content marketing is mostly considered a long-term strategy, designed to boost your brand’s digital presence over time and ultimately drive targeted traffic to your website.

  • 5%

    Only 5% of B2C marketers have no plans to develop a content marketing strategy, showing that the vast majority view it as a worthwhile investment (CMI)

  • 68%

    68% of online experiences begin with a search engine, meaning there is claimable traffic out there on the SERP, providing you rank (Brightedge)

Why Is SEO Content Important?


Content marketing works because it helps people solve problems. The customer is put first, and the content is built to match what they’re seeking.

When a person has a problem, they turn to Google (83% of market share) and then click through to the most relevant or attention-grabbing link to get answers.

Here’s where SEO comes in.

SEO stands for search engine optimisation. It’s about making sure that your website ranks highly for related keywords on Google (or another search engine). This way, when a potential customer is browsing or seeking answers to questions related to something you sell, your website will appear as a relevant option for them to explore.

Therefore, the goal of SEO is to rank your website as high as possible so that people can find your page easily. Of course, all of your competitors will have the same goal so climbing the SERPs is not always straightforward and requires time and expertise. Like content marketing, SEO is a long-term strategy, but one that can bring massive benefits to your business’s staying power.

It cannot work by itself, though, and needs content to help match potential customers’ search queries to searched-for keywords.

Through targeted optimisation techniques and technical tune-ups, a qualified SEO expert will use content – be it web pages, blogs, articles, videos, etc. – to drive traffic to your website and keep its performance high.

How Content Impacts the Messy Middle

Essential to content marketing, the messy middle is a model developed by the brains at Google following meticulous research and data gathering. It adds a new spin to the traditional buyer’s journey.

Well, thanks to Google’s research, the old journey is old news – quite frankly!

With the rise of the personal computer and, even more so, the smartphone, the past two decades have seen the internet quickly become embedded in our everyday lives. It’s everywhere, and we’re all on it, with different demographics hitting record internet usage.

The amount of content available now is seemingly infinite, with there officially being more phones than people to keep everyone within reach.

With this in mind, the team at Google have demonstrated the impact that this tide of super-accessible and immediate information has had on how we make purchase decisions.

Content Questions Answered:

  • How can I leverage existing content in my content marketing strategy?

    If your existing content isn’t ranking highly on Google, that doesn’t mean you should give up on it. Existing pages can be SEO-optimised with an injection of fresh content that’s valuable, in-depth and full of proper links and keywords. Old pages can even be transformed into content pillars or ‘main hubs’, which will link out to several ‘sub’ pages relating to that topic. Those pages will then link back to this main hub, vastly improving the SEO performance of the page.

  • What’s the difference between content marketing and social media?

    The main difference between content marketing and social media is the length of the content. Social media calls for short and snappy content that can be easily digested and shared by users on those platforms. Content marketing, on the other hand, is geared towards search engines, where in-depth, long-form content rises to the top (literally).

  • How does content drive revenue?

    Good content marketing is all about getting people on-site and keeping them there with informative and authoritative content that they both trust and enjoy. By supporting your SEO efforts, content drives traffic to the site, increases visibility, improves user experience and pushes for conversions.
