What’s the Inspiration Level of Your Marketing Content?

Content 0 Comments


Why do some pieces of content go viral while others are swept under the rug? There’s no one formula for inspirational content, but there are five essential components to address when creating marketing materials that capture your audience’s attention and interest.

1. Will My Audience Care?

You aren’t creating content for yourself. You’re creating it for your audience. When you go to share an article, tweet, write a blog, or send out an email, ask yourself, “will my audience care?” Just because you find something interesting doesn’t mean your target clientele will. Referring back to the notion of personas, consider what your John Doe likes and is interested in learning about.

2. Will My Content Reach Them?

Where is your audience? If you’re targeting Millennials, they’re likely on social media. If they are business professionals, there’s a good chance LinkedIn and email is their main method of communication and learning. An inspirational and effective piece of content is one that can be quickly and easily found by your audience.

3. Does It Align With My Goals?

As much as marketing is about creativity, it’s also about analytics. You should have a specific goal for each strategy you implement. With a goal in mind, you can benchmark your progress and take note of what content is working and what isn’t. Over time, you’ll get better and better at engaging with your audience and inspiring them to take action with you.

4. Is This an Original Concept?

First, we understand that just about everything has been done before, whether it’s a list of the most expensive insurance claims or the top five reasons your business has been audited. However, there is always a way to put an original spin on a conventional idea. Use your unique voice and experiences to share a story or share the idea in a new or exciting way.

5. Does This Fit My Brand?

Not everything works for everyone. Just because a business’ Facebook post went viral doesn’t mean the same post will have the same results on your Facebook page. Don’t fall prey to gimmicks and always keep your brand top of mind. By staying consistent with your business’ brand, your audience will start to remember your business and know exactly who you are and what you offer.

When attempting a new marketing method, writing a blog article, or launching a campaign, consider these five questions to help guide you in the creation and dissemination. The more strategic you are, the better the results!

Distill Your Niche

"...while they can’t turn back the clock and address these issues beforehand - such as increasing their spouse’s life insurance or saving more - there are ways to take control and feel more confident in their future.
When working with widows, there are a few first steps I recommend taking:

1. Get Organized
Whether or not you handled all of your family’s finances, some, or none, the first step is to organize your financial documents. Before you can determine how to budget and what steps to take, you have to first understand where you stand financially. If you are having trouble translating your investment account statements, a financial advisor can help you understand what your documents mean. You’ll want to copy and safeguard your important documents and review life insurance policies with a trusted advisor.

2. Budget for a Single Income
More than half of widows have difficulty adjusting to a single income. This may because they haven’t reevaluated their bills and expenses and adjusted..."

"...Once we understand your family’s current circumstances, goals, and unique needs, we develop strategies to help preserve and potentially grow your wealth and take over the time-consuming tasks associated with managing your complex financial affairs. Working with a family office can benefit families in a number of ways, including:

  • Preserving wealth through proactive management and appropriate strategies
  • Mitigating risk by diversifying investments
  • Assisting with the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next through strategic asset allocation and estate planning..."

Unique Articles in Your Voice

"...More than likely, you have a clear understanding of your relationship with your doctor or your dentist. You pay a fee and, in return, you receive a service, including advice and recommendations based on your individual situation. It would make sense then for your relationship with your financial advisor to be the same; but for many, that’s not the case.

At Financial Guideposts, we’ve noticed a trend: that the general public does not understand the relationship they have with their financial advisor. We want to change that. We believe there are two critical aspects you should understand when working with a financial advisor: how he or she gets paid and what services he or she provides..."
