The Power of Brand Publishing: How to Win Customers (#764)
Active brand publishing is a must-have. Or customers will choose your competitors. Why? Customers need value first before buying anything. The rule of 7 touches works well in marketing and sales. Brands should bring value, help, and support to customers' journeys. It builds trust and creates the feeling of guilt to give something back. So, when the buying time comes, customers know exactly where to buy products. Today, building a big business without marketing attribution is almost impossible because customers only buy recognizable brands. Here is the main problem. How can we compete with big brands by posting high-quality content at a scale that requires a lot of resources? Anything is possible. I start all my projects with zero money. It's not a good idea to invest when most competitors have years of experience. Acquire experience first and then invest resources. In that way, I've built a few businesses globally. My goal is to keep growing more and more. But why do 95% of businesses fail? They are selfish and don't care about customers. Content marketing offers a high return on investment (ROI) and costs 62% less per lead than traditional outbound marketing. According to one of the best marketers in history, Seth Godin, content marketing is one marketing left. According to Demand Metric: 78% of consumers prefer to learn about products from a company's content rather than traditional advertising. The best way to build strong brand recognition is to land your marketing message more than seven times in various channels: articles, video, audio, live streams, etc. It's a lot of work for small brands with limited resources. Small brands and new startups cannot afford significant content creation expenses if they create content similar to big brands, but they can work smarter, not harder. Statista found that content marketing influences 90% of buyers' decisions and plays a role in all stages of the buyer's journey. Read this guide until the end; you will know exactly what to do. Brand Publishing Foundation "Content is king" - Bill Gates (Founder, Microsoft) Brand publishing is the process of creating a lot of educational content with an individual style and solid call-to-action in various channels:
  • blogs
  • guest posts
  • audio podcasts
  • videos
  • webinars
  • social media posts
  • PR.
These channels win attention, including views, likes, comments, and traffic, to show customers how products can solve their problems in seven or more touches. Brands should have unique content with valuable insights that stand out because generic content has low engagement and hurts more CX. Before posting any content, you should create a buying persona. Understanding Your Audience: The First Step to Engagement "The goal of all marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits them and sells itself." - Peter Drucker (Management Consultant) Learn your customers:
  • demographic data
  • interests
  • problems
  • occupations
  • religion
  • anything else.
Content works if it's non-boring and your target audience gets value. There are a few ways of collecting data:
  • Talk with customers
  • Get data from salespeople
  • Use tools, studies, polls, etc.
When you learn the audience, bring them a quality that search engines and social media only recommend. Content Creation: Quality Over Quantity "Don't just create content; create content that adds value. Content that educates, inspires and solves problems." - Neil Patel (Entrepreneur & Digital Marketer) The era of lazy marketers is dead. Creating high-quality content demands collecting data, having extended experience, become an expert in a specific niche. For example, I cannot create good content about weight loss and cars with limited experience and lack of passion. In digital marketing, I can and do it every single day. Quality means sharing something better than existing content that educates your audience that experts can bring through years of hard work, if not decades. Quality takes time. That is why quantity hurts quality. Multi-Channel Strategy: Choosing the Right Channels for Your Message Your audience can be everywhere, but they spend more time on specific channels: blogs, social media, audio podcasts, events, etc. The main goal is to find the most popular channels for your customers. Sparktoro is a great tool that shows what your target users consume more. Learn these channels and brainstorm your ideas on how to do it better than existing content. Then, create a content plan for what you'll do first, second, third, etc., according to choosing priorities. A study by the Content Marketing Institute found that companies with solid content marketing strategies experience 30% higher customer retention rates. Creating much content at scale is only possible by repurposing similar content in different formats. For example, you can write a blog post and convert it to guest posts and social media posts. You don't need to collect data about this topic for videos, audio podcasts, and live streams. HubSpot research shows that businesses that publish 16+ blog posts per month get almost four times as much traffic as those who publish 0-4 posts. Authenticity in Brand Messaging Most content creators give up creating content consistently fast. It's not a lack of discipline. The main reason is they dislike what they do and only replicate what competitors provide to their audience. For example, if you don't enjoy writing, film more or record audio podcasts like GaryVee, MrBeast, and Joe Rogan. Be yourself and enjoy each moment. Authenticity helps you stick with the game for a long when results are low or absent, but you enjoy it like other hobbies: watching TV, walking with dogs, and spending time with your family. Don't build high expectations of getting fast results that stop most content creators. Your goal is to be better than others. Challenges and problems are the central part of the process. Common Pitfalls in Brand Publishing and How to Avoid Them Only learn what works by trying hard, testing, experimenting, and failing many times while creating content. "If you can't measure it, you can't improve it." - Peter Drucker. The most common pitfalls include the following:
  • lack of consistency
  • creating generic content
  • weak inspiration
  • boring.
Users seek valuable, attractive, and inspirational content that decides their problems and provides solutions. Conclusion: Future Trends: Staying Ahead in Brand Publishing "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt (Former First Lady of the United States). The future is yours, and others can't impact your results. Just love what you do, enjoy each moment, and outwork others by helping your customers more than anybody else.

SEO Experts: Decoding Search Engines in the Age of AI (#758)
Remember the early days of SEO? It was a wild west, full of guesswork and trial-and-error. But then, something changed. Enter the SEO experts. I'll never forget the first time I truly understood the power of SEO. I was working on a client's website, and their traffic was stagnant. I spent weeks pouring over data trying different tactics, but nothing worked. Finally, I reached out to an SEO expert, and within a few weeks, our traffic had skyrocketed. It was a revelation! But here's the thing: those SEO experts we all rely on? They're the original AI algorithm tuners. Think about it. They spend years studying search engine algorithms, understanding how they work, and adjusting websites to improve their ranking. That's precisely what AI algorithms do, too! And it's not just a hunch. Studies show that SEO experts can have a significant impact on website traffic. For example, a recent study by Search Engine Journal found that companies that hire SEO experts see an average increase in organic traffic of 47%. That's a massive difference! And it highlights the vital role that SEO experts play in the digital landscape. But here's the thing: the world of SEO is constantly evolving. Search engine algorithms are becoming more complex, and new challenges are always emerging. So, how do SEO experts stay ahead of the curve? Well, the best ones are constantly learning and adapting. They're voracious readers, always looking for new information and insights. They're also active members of the SEO community, collaborating with other experts and sharing their knowledge. And that's where today's guest, Jalali Hartman, comes in. Jalali is a renowned SEO expert with a deep understanding of the field. In our conversation, he'll share valuable insights on how SEO experts are adapting to the changing landscape and how they're continuing to play a vital role in the success of businesses online.

Navigating the Future: Generative Search in Small Markets (#757)

Anatolii Ulitovskyi, Thomas Bogh Rasmussen
Navigating the Future: Generative Search in Small Markets (#757)
Search is evolving. And with it, our strategies must, too. Remember when a simple keyword could catapult your content to the top of search results? Thanks to the advent of generative search experiences, those days are becoming a memory. Thomas Bogh joins us to shed light on this seismic shift, focusing on smaller markets where every click counts. In a world where 63% of shopping journeys start online (according to a recent study by Salesforce), understanding this evolution is not just beneficial; it's crucial. Primarily, when Google processes over 3.5 billion searches daily, a significant portion of these are now influenced by AI and machine learning algorithms. But what does this mean for businesses operating in smaller markets? It means opportunity. Opportunity to leapfrog the competition by adapting early to these changes. Opportunity to connect with your audience in a way that's more intuitive, more relevant, and ultimately, more effective. Thomas Bogh has witnessed firsthand the power of generative search. He shares stories of businesses that have successfully navigated this shift, transforming their online presence to be more dynamic and responsive to user intent. The key? Understanding that modern search behavior leans heavily on context and user intent rather than mere keywords. This shift necessitates a deeper dive into semantic search optimization, ensuring content matches keywords and aligns with the searcher's questions and needs. And in smaller markets, where the competition might be less aware of these nuances, the advantage of adopting such strategies early cannot be overstated. Generative AI tools are also changing the game, offering new ways to create engaging and optimized content for these evolving search landscapes. But with great power comes great responsibility. Navigating the ethical and practical aspects of AI-generated content is a delicate balance that Thomas Bogh explores with insightful clarity. He emphasizes the importance of maintaining authenticity and value in content, regardless of the tools used to create it. In conclusion, the future of search is here, and it's more dynamic and intelligent than ever. This presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities for businesses in smaller markets. Adapting to generative search experiences and optimizing for modern search behavior isn't just a strategy for growth; it's a necessity for survival. Thomas Bogh's expertise in this field offers a beacon for those looking to navigate these waters successfully. Are you ready to adapt and thrive in the new era of search? Join us on this journey with Thomas Bogh and discover how your business can adapt and excel in the ever-evolving world of search. The future is now. Let's embrace it together. FAQ:
  1. What is generative search?
Think of generative search as an intelligent assistant that doesn't just find answers; it creates them. Instead of simply matching keywords, it understands your query's intent and generates more conversational responses tailored to your needs. It's like chatting with a friend who knows a lot about everything!
  1. How is AI changing search engine optimization?
AI is like the new brain behind search engines, making them more intelligent and intuitive. It's shifting the focus from traditional keyword stuffing to understanding the context and intent behind searches. Creating content that answers questions and solves problems is more important than ever.
  1. Why is optimizing for modern search behavior necessary in smaller markets?
In smaller markets, every visitor counts, and being able to connect with your audience in a meaningful way can set you apart from the competition. By understanding and optimizing how people are searching today, you can ensure your content reaches the right people at the right time.
  1. Can small businesses compete with larger ones in search results with these new AI changes?
Absolutely! The shift towards generative search levels the playing field because it's not about who has the most keywords; it's about who provides the most value. Small businesses can compete by creating high-quality, relevant content that resonates with their audience.
  1. How do I optimize my content for generative search?
Start by focusing on the intent behind the searches related to your business. Create content that answers questions, provides solutions, and is genuinely helpful. Also, keep your content conversational and engaging, as if you're talking directly to your audience.
  1. What tools can help me understand modern search behaviors?
Several tools, like Google Analytics, SEMrush, and Ahrefs, can give you insights into how people find your website and what they're looking for. These tools can help you tailor your content strategy to better meet your audience's needs.
  1. How often should I update my content to stay relevant in search results?
It's not just about frequency; it's about relevance. Keep an eye on trends in your industry and update your content when new information becomes available or when you can add more value to your existing content. This shows search engines and your audience that you're an authority in your field.
  1. What's the biggest mistake businesses make with their SEO strategy in light of AI changes?
The biggest mistake is sticking to old SEO tactics and ignoring the shift towards intent-based search. Focusing solely on keywords rather than the quality and relevance of the content can harm your visibility in search results.
  1. How can I measure the success of my optimization efforts for modern search behavior?
Look at metrics like organic traffic, search rankings, engagement rates (like time on page and bounce rate), and conversion rates. These indicators will help you understand whether your content resonates with your audience and whether your SEO strategy is effective.
  1. Any advice for businesses just starting to optimize for generative search and modern search behaviors?
Start with your audience. Understand their questions, concerns, and what they're searching for related to your business. Then, create content that addresses those needs authentically and helpfully. Remember, it's about providing value and building trust, not just chasing search engine algorithms.

Bramhall on harnessing the untapped potential of storytelling in B2B marketing. FAQ:
  1. What makes storytelling so effective in B2B marketing?
Storytelling transcends traditional marketing by creating emotional connections making complex solutions relatable and memorable. It's about humanizing your brand and showing the real impact of your solutions on businesses and people.
  1. Can you give an example of a successful B2B storytelling campaign?
One standout example is IBM's "Smarter Planet" initiative. They showcased how their technologies solve real-world problems, from reducing traffic jams to improving healthcare, making their high-tech offerings relatable and impactful.
  1. How do I start incorporating storytelling into my B2B marketing strategy?
Begin with understanding your audience's challenges and aspirations. Craft stories that show your solutions in action, solving those problems. Use customer testimonials and case studies as the backbone of your narrative.
  1. Is there a difference between B2C and B2B storytelling?
While both aim to connect emotionally, B2B storytelling often involves more complexity, focusing on the logic and benefits behind solutions while still engaging the audience personally.
  1. How important is authenticity in B2B storytelling?
Authenticity is crucial. It builds trust and credibility. Your stories should be genuine representations of your brand values and the real experiences of your customers.

Not necessarily. While high production value can help, the essence of storytelling is the message, not the medium. Authentic, well-crafted stories can be told through blog posts, social media, or email.

Start by collecting stories from within your organization and your customers. Work with your team or consider hiring a content writer skilled in storytelling.

  1. Why is there often a gap between SEOs and engineers?
It's mainly because they speak different languages. Engineers focus on how things work, while SEOs concentrate on how content is discovered. Bridging this gap means translating SEO priorities into technical requirements and vice versa.
  1. How important is collaboration between SEOs and engineers?
Super important! Without it, you might end up with a technically perfect site that no one can find or a highly optimized site that’s unstable. Collaboration ensures the site is both discoverable and functional.
  1. Can SEO considerations influence web development?
Absolutely. SEO insights can guide the site's architecture, improve page speed, and ensure mobile-friendliness, significantly impacting the site's usability and search engine ranking.
  1. What’s one thing engineers wish SEOs understood better?
Engineers with SEOs understood the complexities and time required for implementing changes. What seems like a simple fix on the surface can involve layers of coding and testing.
  1. And what do SEOs wish engineers understood?
SEOs wish engineers appreciated the urgency of SEO recommendations. Search engines won’t wait for us to get our act together, and delays can mean lost visibility and revenue.
  1. How can the two teams communicate more effectively?
Regular meetings and shared tools or platforms can help. Also, creating a common language or documentation set that both teams understand can bridge communication gaps.
  1. What’s a typical project where SEOs and engineers must collaborate closely?
Site redesigns are a classic example. This is where SEOs can ensure that the new design doesn’t lose the SEO equity the site has built up, and engineers can ensure the site runs smoothly.
  1. Are there tools that can help these two teams work together?
Yes, project management tools like Asana or Jira, communication platforms like Slack, and SEO tools that offer developer-friendly recommendations can help foster better collaboration.
  1. What’s a straightforward way to improve the relationship between SEOs and engineers?
Start with education. Engineers learning SEO basics and vice versa can foster empathy and understanding. Workshops or shared training sessions can be a great start.
  1. Can better collaboration between SEOs and engineers impact a company’s bottom line?
Definitely. A site that ranks well and offers a great user experience can lead to more traffic and conversions, directly affecting a company’s revenue. It’s all about working together to create the best product for users and search engines.
