Why does content marketing need an overhaul?
Austin attributed COVID-19 as the primary reason for the case in question. As countries grappled with the pandemic, the economic downturn exposed them to unprecedented risk.
In a last ditch effort to survive the crisis, a significant number of small businesses have emerged online. Many physical stores have also made the transition to the digital world. Since then, the industry has been flooded with new strategies, many of which have proven ineffective.
“There’s a lot more noise there, and it’s harder for brands to reduce clutter,” Austin said. “The way we define content marketing has changed. Initially it was more about creating and delivering information to attract and retain customers. Today it’s about creating and distributing content that generates conversions and sales. In this regard, many emerging brands are going too far with their claims, and this will not be a sustainable model in the long term,” he added.
How can companies make their content interactive to ensure customer satisfaction?
In response to the above question, Austin offered two possible solutions. He first suggested that the branding be mobile-friendly. Instead of selling services, brands must sell solutions. They need to produce informative and digestible content such as carousels, infographics and interactive videos that add value to the lives of their customers.
Second, he proposed that brands evaluate the performance of their content online. “Numbers play a central role in determining the success of your content,” he said. Almost all social media platforms allow brands to view how their content is performing online and what type of posts are getting the most engagement. Brands should use these analytics to spot trends and understand what works best for them to make their content strategy futuristic.
A message to marketers who favor mass-produced content:
Austin’s latest call was for companies that mass-produce content. He advised them to reevaluate their strategy, pointing out that mass-produced content is no longer effective. Today’s consumers want more personalized and targeted information, which can only be delivered by providing them with solutions tailored to their emotional needs.
