Which types of content create the best results?
To achieve the highest overall results from content marketing, it’s best to have a mix of types of content. Which types requiring more attention depends on your target audience, distribution channel and business goals, among other factors.
For example, blog posts with good SEO will bring you more organic traffic, while video helps increase time on page. Infographics serve well at presenting valuable information and making it easier to remember. And case studies attract people who want to know how a solution (maybe similar to theirs) really works for others.
How much content should be published each month for the best results?
Some believe that the more the better, but volume may come with over-saturation of search engine results. In fact, you need to consider various factors:
- Content goal: If you want to increase your organic traffic, Hubspot advices publishing new blog posts 1-4 times a week. If you want more brand awareness, publish less often with content being more diverse and less SEO-optimized.
- Type of content: Blog posts take much shorter time to produce and consume than a case study, while a video requires more than one person’s effort.
- Business size: Smaller businesses generally produce less piece of content.
- Distribution channel: It’s not wise to push emails daily, but it’s different with social media when things move much faster and in a more public space.
