How are you boosting buzz for your new, business investment?

It’s more than sending out an SEO press release

Whether you are a venture capitalist, angel investor or entreprenur, you’ve spent long hours developing, researching and investing in a new business.

Now, it’s time to tell the world about your products and services and start generating interest and revenue.

Where do you begin?

Well, it’s not just about creating a search-engine-optimization (SEO) press release and distributing it on a massive scale. Today, sales, credibility and awareness are built with a combination of traditional tools and current technology.

Here’s a 3-step Content and PR Process for Results (without wasting time, money or resources)

1. Create a Plan with Content Strategy and an Editorial Calendar.

Before you start your marketing and promotional efforts, you’ll need an action plan. Work with an experienced, SEO content strategist and publicist to create a plan that includes various types of content relevant to your target-market. This involves researching your audience, the competition, your industry, and more.

Once the research process is finished, you and your team will develop specific types of content via social media, articles, e-mail campaigns, white papers, case studies, Infographics, podcasts, videos, newsletters, press releases, events, and more. From this, you then create an editorial calendar outlining what content is published throughout the year relevant to your specific goals and marketing-schedule.

2. Promote Valuable, SEO Content and Messaging – Regularly.

Having great content is not enough to build buzz. You also need to promote and market it to the right people at the right time. In addition to the above, include full, public-relations-activities in your Action Plan. Based on your editorial calendar, certain content will be promoted at certain times.

And instead of just distributing an SEO press release and hoping for the best. Your publicist should pitch exclusive stories to targeted media-members at specific times. This is how you obtain feature stories and publicity that brings results.

In addition, your content should provide value to your target-market on a regular basis. Send out at least one, SEO press release per month and update your online newsroom as needed so you appear current and newsworthy. Feature messaging relevant to your customers (e-mail drip campaigns, newsletters, social media posts, etc.) and touch base with them on a monthly or weekly basis.

3. Track Results.

As you move forward with the activities above, it’s essential to put tracking mechanisms in place. Set up Google Analytics or other software to monitor Website traffic, e-mail clicks, social-media hits, and more.

This will give you valuable information about your target-market and tell you what content is most popular. Then, you can give them more of the data they want to see and get rid of the content that does not work – right away.
