Durch einen Abgleich mit bestehenden Inhalten und Rankings ermitteln wir, welche Themen bereits gut vertreten sind, welche noch optimiert werden müssen und wo Inhalte fehlen. Hilfreich dabei ist auch ein Content Audit. Dieser liefert nicht nur eine Bestandsaufnahme aller Inhalte der Website, sondern auch eine Bewertung auf Grundlage des Traffics. Auf dieser Grundlage lässt sich dann eine Content Strategie entwickeln.
Uiteraard meten we bezoek en activiteit op onze website met Google Analytics, zo’n beetje de standaard als het gaat om website-statistieken. Het is gratis, dus een betere prijs/prestatie-verhouding bestaat niet ;-) Wel vind ik dat Google Analytics door de jaren heen steeds ingewikkelder is geworden en daarom gebruik ik ook nog een ander statistiekenpakket (zie verderop in dit artikel).
The “marketing” part of content marketing can lead to confusion as content marketing is not just used for strict marketing purposes. It’s also used for sales enablement, public relations, etc. Good programs involve multiple internal customers (customer service, sales, product marketing, brand management, etc.) and content marketing is not owned by marketing (nor by PR or any other division).
Identify where target audiences are spending their time online, and where relevant conversations are already taking place. For retail companies, maybe it’s Instagram and Pinterest. For B2B, it might be Twitter and LinkedIn. Instead of wasting time and resources on social media that won’t deliver, focus on the right channels with the biggest payoffs...

Unlike traditional marketing, content marketing has no sales pitch. It does not try to directly advertise or sell a particular brand, product or service. Rather, it aims to capture mindshare with valuable, relevant information that is educational, entertaining and/or emotionally satisfying. In this way, content marketing succeeds in creating interest and awareness of the brand and its offerings.

So what is content marketing, then? Well, it's pretty simple. Content marketing is the use of that content—any of it—to help meet a marketing goal for your organization. That could be acquisition of potential customers, retention of existing ones, making more people aware of your brand or your products, or really anything else. We'll go into many of the most popular and effective ways of doing all of these things throughout the rest of this guide.

These people interact and engage with their large network of followers and consumers on social media, talking about a particular brand that they love and use to an audience with whom trust has already been established. Because this is not an ad or coming from the company, influencers are able to build up a brand’s positive image in the minds of people, thereby helping attract more customers.
Industry Forums: Posting content on respected industry forums adds a level of authority and brand reach your company may not have had before. Sites like Business Insider or Forbes are ideal for a more general business management audience, but niche publications that are exclusive to your industry can be even better channels through which to target your core audience.

Prioritizing clicks refers to display click ads, although advantageous by being ‘simple, fast and inexpensive’ rates for display ads in 2016 is only 0.10 percent in the United States. This means one in a thousand click ads are relevant therefore having little effect. This displays that marketing companies should not just use click ads to evaluate the effectiveness of display advertisements (Whiteside, 2016).[42]
