What is Pain Point Marketing?

pain point marketing

One of the things decent marketers do when developing a new campaign is to put themselves in their target audience’s “shoes.”

They imagine themselves as someone who’s looking for a new house, a restaurant, a haircut or even a literal new pair of shoes. And the first thoughts are naturally something along the lines of: “What can I offer someone in that situation?”

That’s what decent marketers do. What exceptional marketers do goes one step further. They ask: “What is the source of my audience’s pain?” Continue reading What is Pain Point Marketing?

28 Boring Words

The following is a guest post, courtesy of Jack Milgram, writer & blogger,  custom-writing.org/blog:

People are very different from each other.

We each have preferences in the clothes we wear, things we like to do in our spare time, books to read, movies to watch, music to listen to, and food to eat.

But…

There’s one thing that “unites” us all.

And that thing is a bunch of the same old boring words that we like to use over and over again.

Sure, it’s natural that we have a set of words that tend to be used most often each and every day. And it’s very convenient, as you don’t have to think twice before expressing your thoughts.

However, there’s a negative side to it.

Using the same words repeatedly results in routine, basic, “dry” speech (whether it’s written or verbal).

Yes, it’s true that there are plenty of slang words and specific terms different groups of people use. And they do spice up the way we speak.

But there are still words that all of us can’t help using. So, we decided to do something about it.

We put together an infographic containing 28 of the most common boring words. And we’ve gathered a bunch of alternatives you can use instead of those words. Doesn’t that sound convenient?

Take a look at our infographic, and you’ll see that replacing some of the common words with more exciting ones does make a big difference.

With these word alternatives, you’ll be able to make even the most regular conversation seem brighter and more interesting.

You’re welcome.

Why Quality Blog Content is Crucial for Your Website

quality blog content

In the competition for website viewers, blog content is crucial.

“What’s the point,” you ask, “when so many exist already?” However, never doubt the power of high-quality web content. When it comes to getting web viewers, blogging matters.

What makes quality blog content so critical to having a popular website? We’ll break it down so you know why focusing on your blog is so important.

5 Reasons Quality Blog Content is Crucial for Your Website

1. Gets You Seen

The first step to having a successful website is getting web users to arrive at your site in the first place.

Easier said than done, right? But quality blog content is a key component of winning the battle for viewers.

Google actually optimizes for sites that have regularly updated blogs with useful content. Longer content is now prioritized over short posts, as web users want informative, useful posts rather than too-short filler.

If your blog is continually putting out new, high-quality blog content, that will put you above the competition in a Google web search.

2. Users Gain Value

Google wants sites with good, lengthy blog posts so that readers will get the value they’re looking for.

You should want the same thing, of course. Blog posts mean nothing unless they are relevant and helpful to readers on the web. Make your posts detailed, descriptive, and informative.

If you can help users find information that they want that’s relevant to your market, you can keep them on your website longer and help ensure that they will purchase something or leave a comment.

3. Get Featured Snippets

Featured snippets appear when someone Google searches a question. A top site will show up along with a piece of text from the site that contains the answer.

If you can get a featured snippet, you can ensure that your site will appear at the top, and the snippet can entice viewers to click.

To get a featured snippet, you’ll need blog posts that clearly provide answers to commonly asked questions about your product or service. Find out the questions searchers are asking, and use your blog to answer them.

4. Keeps Readers Interested

Ideally, viewers will like what they see on your site enough to click around and read through a few different posts.

You want them to like your site enough to come back – maybe to bookmark it or to sign up for your newsletter.

This won’t happen unless you have lots of new, interesting blog posts. Write in a style that’s both informative and engaging. Provide readers with entertainment as well as answers.

5. Proves Your Value

You want to stand out among industry competition, right?

Good blog posts can help prove that you are the authority that web users can trust. Prove your worth with blog posts, and readers will buy into your brand.

Conclusion

You can’t be competitive in the online world without good blog posts. Keep your blog updated with useful, engaging content, and the results will speak for themselves.
