Content Marketing for Baltimore, Maryland and beyond – Part II of a Six Part Series
Businesses around the globe know content marketing brings traffic, leads, and conversions. From social media to webinars there are a multitude of content marketing assets. Yet, each and every content marketing strategy must begin – and end – with your website. When constructed using a solid content marketing strategy most websites make a a bold appearance in organic search.  Below I share what constitutes an effective content marketing core.

Creation of a Fierce Digital Contender
Google looks for relevant, original, optimized content and solid website construction which is why search engine friendly websites feature smart content marketing. Here, I’ll briefly share how my company creates a fierce digital contender.  First, (after we qualify a client) we learn all we can about his/her business and business goals. Our Objective: Create a a drilled down list of categories with future expansion in mind.  We create our list through a demographic and keyword evaluation process.  This means we ask A LOT of questions, review a lot of materials and do research.  After our list is approved, we move to the construction, design, and content creation phases.  The end result: A stunning website complete with a solid content marketing strategy for maximum ROI.

A Solid Content Marketing Core Example
Janney Painting Inc., an East Coast commercial and industrial painting company in Manchester, Maryland hired my company to create their new website. Take a look at it:

    Catherine — I’m very impressed with your campaign for Janney Painting. So smart to put all the keywords right on the landing page, all within a compelling design framework, and knowing exactly what customers are searching for. Your client must be very happy — and you deserve kudos for creating such an effective strategy.

    Catherine, This is an excellent example of a website that was built strategically with your client’s future in mind. Obviously, you (or someone else at your company) did your homework. You knew exactly who the target customers are and what long-tail keywords they search on. To obtain that search ranking in so short a time period is testament to proper planning, a strategy and then proper execution. Thanks for sharing this with us. Your screenshots work perfectly in this post.

    This study is a perfect example of how a little goes a long way when it comes to reaching your goals as far as setting up a website to attract potential customers. Beyond a really great design, it’s the little things like choosing the right keywords and where to place them in and around the website really helps. As a relatively newbie to blogging, it gives me a basis to assess my blog and do a little bit of tweaking. Kudos on a job well done, Catherine!

    Thanks for sharing the case study Catherine. From your experience with new clients do they give you a written brief or do they leave it up to you to ask the questions, do the research etc?

    My dad always told me, “It doesn’t matter what you do, just be the best at it!” Here you have shown us how you do your best to create the best possible outcome for a client. It is an impressive “win-win.”

    For such a dry topic, the website above actually looks engaging, specific and informative. Nicely done!

    In almost all instances Susan I ask the questions and do the research. A few clients will hand me a pile of papers and ask me to integrate the information. My technical writing background comes in quite handy for my industrial clients. :) Thanks for asking.
