Hello and Happy Tuesday!

This week in Internet marketing, we’ve gathered some of the best and most helpful articles from across the web. We’re looking at how to write content for a broader target audience, as well as social proof strategies to improve SEO, and which keywords to avoid in your Adwords account. We’re also looking at how to improve your organic reach on Facebook, as well as tips for an effective landing page.

Why It's A Bad Idea to Only Create Content for Your Target Audience

Content Creation Strategy

Quality content can drive conversions, earn links, engage audiences and build brand awareness. However, targeting your content to a very specific audience can make achieving these goals difficult. Other companies are also likely competing for that same market, so creating a broader target audience will provide you with a competitive advantage, as well as more opportunities to be featured in the press, blogs and other websites. As well, there are likely many potential customers that you could be missing out on. Setting your content goals and strategy, distributing content based on target audience and measuring your progress are all ways to create content for a broader audience.

The extent to which a customer trusts your brand could increase their chances of converting, and social proof can help to build this trust. Customer reviews are a popular form of social proof, however you can also use an expert opinion from an individual your audience trusts, or an influencer who can promote or review your product or service on their social channels. Visually-appealing logos, high subscriber counts, mentions in media and displaying your relationship or work for clients are all ways to engage and build trust with your audience and ultimately boost your SEO.
