The competitive landscape has compelled businesses to invest substantially in creating content. This is because content creation is one of the most effective ways of creating brand awareness and driving sales. The going gets tough when small business owners or entrepreneurs with limited resources compete with established businesses.
With vast experience of working with small business owners and entrepreneurs, we have realized that content generation takes a back seat due to limited resources and financial challenges. Producing quality content in diverse niches within a short period becomes a challenge. Despite the challenge, about 93% of B2B marketers and 86% of B2C marketers employ content marketing as the main channel for customer acquisition.
Time is crucial for an entrepreneur owner running a business. Every content piece produced is measured in terms of its Return on Investment. But it also boils down to the amount of time invested and quality generated. If 46% of a companies’ budget goes into creating content, it is only prudent to invest a part in content developing tools. This guide will demonstrate how specific tools can churn out impactful content in a step-by-step process. But before we begin, let’s take a glance at some of the results we as a growth hacking agency managed to produce –
How does it work?
It is easy! But it helps to understand how content marketing works and how quality content can be produced in large quantities.
Everything has a logical culmination, from selecting a topic and carrying out keyword research to completing a content piece. Let’s unravel them one-by-one.
1. Topic Selection
One of the significant roadblocks people face is that they are unsure about the topic when it comes to writing consistency. They don’t know what to write. At Voxtur, we counter this roadblock by commonly using Ahrefs for topic research. It is one of the best SEO tools for Topic Research, Competitor Research, Link Analysis, etc.
Ahref recently launched its Content Explorer 2.0, which is demonstrated in this video. Let’s take a look.
If you throw an idea to Ahref, it will churn out the most relevant content pieces published ever. Those content pieces can inspire you to come up with topics you can write.
By using advanced filters, you can extract ideas as per your requirement. For example, if you are looking for web pages with ‘yoga’ and ‘anxiety’ in their titles, type it out on the Content Explorer page and search.
Here is what we got –
These results can be sorted on various metrics, including date published, traffic value, domain rating, social share, etc.
Create a list of topics that are directly or indirectly beneficial for your business. Once the list is finalized, move to the next step, i.e., Keyword Research.
2. Keyword Research
Finding the right keywords for a blog post is a step towards writing. For years, we have been told that we need to find the right keywords to rank high in the SERPs. For our content to remain relevant, we need to get the right keywords.
Having tried all the popular keyword research tools available in the market, we have concluded that KWFinder helps the most in keyword research and rank tracking. It is a time-saving keyword research tool that helps you find profitable keywords and organize work.
Let’s see how it works. Let’s assume the topic is ‘yoga and anxiety.’ To get started, we use phrases that are most relevant to this topic. You can filter results as per your country and language.
As you can see, there are 290 searches every month on ‘yoga’ and ‘anxiety.’ But there are more similar searches, including ‘yoga for anxiety,’ which has 3200 searches per month. There are some key factors that you should consider while carrying out keyword research –
- The keyword should be relevant to your business.
- Choose keywords that have a higher search volume.
- Look for keywords with low keyword difficulty. The lower, the better.
- Find similar keywords to add variety to your content.
One of the growth hacks while performing keyword research is to look for google autocomplete and questions asked by people. KWFinder also helps you to curate and save in one single dashboard. The below screenshot shows a dedicated list for a yoga blog.
3. Content Outlining
Once the topic and keywords are finalized, we move to the Outline. Outlining is crucial as it gives you an overview of how an article will look and how the sections must be categorized. At Voxturr, we prefer to use Frase for creating outlines and content briefs.
Frase is a powerful tool with exceptional capabilities to curate content from the web as per your requirement. Simply put, a keyword entered on the Frase search bar will fetch you the top 20 page ranking for that keyword, including questions asked on Quora, Reddit, and other platforms.
It also gives you an overview of the pages that are ranking on that particular keyword. For example, if we want to write on ‘Yoga for Anxiety’ and enter this keyword, we get to know that in the top 15 results, the average word count is 766 with 4 images/articles.
With an option to automatically import the content brief, we can create the outline in less than 5 minutes.
Once the brief is created, we start working on the outline. The outline is taken care of by the tool itself. Frase helps you create an outline by showing popular pages ranked for the keyword, allowing you to select specific sections.
Here is what the outline looks like –
- Search for different keywords and come up with new ideas for your blog.
- Include statistics and questions available in Frase.
4. Writing & Editing
Once the outline is ready, you can begin editing the article in your language. Once the article is edited, run it Grammarly to check for errors or enhancements in the content. Grammarly is also one of the best plagiarism checker tools available in the market.
Use Quilbot to rewrite the sentences in a better way. Quilbot is one of the best tools for sentence rephrasing. It saves a lot of time and costs only $5 per month. With Quiltbot, it gets easy to add variety to your sentences. Take a look –
In this digital era, everyone talks about producing content, but no one tells you how to do it effectively. Producing content is not easy, but tools like Ahrefs, KWFinder, Frase, and Grammarly help create impactful blogs and bring traffic to the website.
