We often heard this term that “Content is the King”, and this term is strongly suggested in the field of digital marketing. When looking at the days before the internet has arrived, we find that businesses advertised their products publishing their contents through the newspaper or leaflet, there was wall painting too.
But now the time has changed, the world became digital, and we are following the same process for advertising our products digitally. Whichever the medium is, been it digital or traditional, you have to focus on the content part. Because it is the most valuable part of any business strategy. Starting from social media marketing to SEO rankings, content is the only key that led us to the top position of the market competition.
Fresh and relevant content is not only driving traffic to your site but also helps you to build trust with your customers. It can also fuel your other digital marketing strategies too, as it is the base for your other business promotion/marketing strategies.
So, if you still haven’t invested in the content marketing for your business, then you may miss a big chance to win the market competition, or in other words, handing over the king’s crown to your competitors without any hesitation. Will you like it if your competitor can get more traffic and ranking than you? I bet no.

As I previously mentioned that content is the most important part of any business strategy, and it is the base where all other promotional strategies lie. Now let’s start with the reasons, why we are saying it is the most important part,
#1. Content Marketing helps in Lead Generation.
If you still have doubts regarding the fact that content marketing is most important, then bear in mind that it can generate leads to your sites effectively with fewer costs and efforts than traditional marketing. Say, for example, you are selling an item on your site, and you want to make it a top-selling product on your site but you don’t have enough customers, simply write genuine content about that product. Write about the product in detail, like a blog post, and be specific about its features, importance, and why it should be the best-selling product. Also, give honest reviews about the product in your post, and lastly, put a link to your product page in your content, now boom you will get a lot of leads without spending huge money in traditional marketing.
Often a site loses huge sales because the customers were not confident enough about purchasing the product and abandoned their carts on the sites. But creating relevant and genuine content will educate your customers about the product, and allow them to learn more about it and personalize it. And once they personalize the product, they will get enough confidence to make the purchase and you will soon be going to win the market competition.
#2. Content Marketing helps in Search Engine Rankings.
Having strong and relevant content on your site makes you rank top in the SERPs. SEO is one of the major parts for your business that let your business be visible to the world, and for being in the top position of the Search Engines, you have to publish good content on your site. Even researches show that sites that publish good content and update frequently have a better chance to be in the first place of SERPs than the sites who don’t.
The main factor is that the more you publish good content on your site, the more you make your customers visit your site and spend time on the pages, and the more your customers spend time on your web pages, the more you get SEO rankings based on the on-site time spending. But make sure that your site contains good quality content, instead of bulks. As the search engine impacts go negative if you frequently publish low-quality content on your site. A quality content once in a month results better than hundreds of low-quality contents publications daily.
#3. Content Marketing helps you to drive more Social Media traffic.
Social media is a big platform for targeting your audience and driving traffic to your site. It offers you various options like a private conversation, product advertisement, and push followers directly to your site, including integrating the options to purchase products without leaving the platform, just for building trust with your customers. Strong content can help you to get more leads from social media.
Content is the main part of Social Media Marketing too. A detailed post will attract more customers to your sites, even you can create graphical content like images and videos regarding your product and post on your social media accounts. It will allow your followers to know about the product and shop it without leaving the platform.
Backlinking to a website is another process of driving traffic to your site, it is a process to get linked to an external website or blogs that may write up about you or link you on their published contents, which will let you get traffic from their audience too.
If you have good content present on your site then you may get the chance to get linked to a website for back-linking, but if you have very lame and easy to find content on your site, then it is obvious you will not get that strong option to get backlinked.
#5. Content Marketing helps you to get a Competitive Advantage.
More relevant content on your site drives more traffic on your site, more traffic will provide you with more SEO rankings, and eventually build a good reputation for your business. Once you will get a good global impact on your business brand, you will get a competitive advantage in this market competition, which will let you stay away from the competition or in simple words let you win it.
