Don't Make 10 Content Marketing Mistakes That Amateurs Make

Don't Make 10 Content Marketing Mistakes That Amateurs Make | Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it
consuming.

Do you often wake up in the middle of the night saying to yourself that it’s not worth the time and effort. We all do.

Blogs take time to write, those great images need to be found or created and those social networks meed to be managed and nurtured. It is often not done or persisted with because there are no apparent quick rewards. This is where the tortoise can beat the hare by slowly persisting. It is a marathon and a journey not a sprint.

One way of thinking about great content marketing is that you are building an audience before you need them. Content builds credibility, trust and followers over time. This earns you the right to then sell them something down the track.

When content marketing and social media emerged there were no tools. Today we have so many technology tools that it’s overwhelming.

But what is great with marketing tools is that you can scale your efforts. It was something I realized with Twitter early on. A few years ago I implemented one software platform that saved me 120 hours a month and it still does.

So what are some content marketing mistakes that many amateurs new to the game are making.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great Scoop by @Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com. Loved the 10 Item List of mistakes "amateurs" make.

1. Not automating

2. Not optimizing for search engines

3. Not hustling your content

4. Not working on your headline

5. Not experimenting

6. Poor quality content

7. Email List Is Money

8. Not thinking like a publisher

9. Not learning from the innovators

We can even agree with #1 since they are "automating" things like social search and, to some lesser extent, publication. We shortened #7 based on their implication - email is money. So True.

The New New Marketing

Quirky Email Marketing Makeover: Good To Great

Quirky Email Marketing Makeover: Good To Great | Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

Quirky Email Marketing Makeover TIps
Quirky.com is new to email marketing. They haven't won the hard won lessons 7 years as a Director of Ecommerce teaches such as:

* Less is more in email marketing.

* Never forget your Call-To-Action.
* Selling more than one idea in an email is crazy.

Quirky started strong with a cold weather hero (hero is largest image on an email or webpage), but made a common "new to email marketing" mistake - they thought their content is as interesting to US as it is to THEM.

Not so much (lol).

Best to apply some Occam's razor to your email marketing cuttting down to a single relevant idea. Quirky's BEFORE makeover email could become 6 or 10 emails. Showed how I would change their email and bet those changes woud increase conversioins 10x.

AT&T Video Bill Epic Failure

AT&T Video Bill Epic Failure | Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

Cool Then Whoops = Epic Failure
Got this interesting solicitation from AT&T to view my "video bill" and took the bait. Would be much more impressed if I didn't get a, "Unable to display video bill at this time" message. 

Hey I am not sure a "video bill" is even a good idea, but sounded DIFFERENT and COOL. Note to AT&T if you roll out a cool thing via email make sure you can support it my brothers and sisters otherwise you simply reinforce what we already think about you - that you are out of touch. 

Should have used my friends @mailVU to serve this bad boy. 

The links on the landing page may take you to my bill, feel free to pay it for me if you feel so moved (lol).M
