Finding Focus: A Simple Strategy to Build a Consistent Marketing Plan

Hello friends! Jen here, and today, I’ve got something super exciting to share with you, especially if you’ve ever felt like a hamster trapped on the marketing wheel. Many entrepreneurs struggle with keeping a consistent strategy—they hop from one idea to the next with no clear plan. But guess what? Finding focus and building a comprehensive marketing plan doesn’t have to be complicated. 

I’m going to walk you through a very simple strategy that I’ve used for years, helping me show up everywhere I want with the least amount of effort. If that sounds good to you, let’s dive in!

Step One: Create Core Content

First things first: start with one main piece of content each week. This could be a blog post, a video, or a podcast episode. Choose a topic that resonates with your audience and showcases your expertise. This core content will be the foundation for all your marketing efforts.

Believe me, focusing on one piece of core content saves a ton of time and ensures your message remains clear and cohesive across all channels.

Step Two: Repurpose Your Core Content

Once your core content is ready, it’s time to repurpose it into smaller pieces for different platforms. Here’s how:

  • Social Media Posts: Create three to five posts from your core content. These can be quotes, tips, or highlights. Tailor each post for the specific platform—what works for Instagram might not necessarily work for LinkedIn.
  • Infographics: Summarize key points into an eye-catching infographic. Tools like Canva make this a breeze, even if you’re not a design pro.
  • Email Newsletter: Write a brief summary of your core content for your weekly email newsletter. Include a call-to-action button directing readers to your full blog post, video, or podcast. This way, you’re using your email list to drive traffic to your core content.
  • Pinterest Pins: Create graphic or video pins linking back to your blog, video, or podcast. Pinterest is fantastic for driving traffic to your core content. The more traffic you drive, the more Google will help boost your content’s visibility.

Step Three: Drive Traffic with Consistent Calls to Action

Including a call to action (CTA) at the end of each repurposed piece of content is crucial. Direct your audience to your core content, whether it’s a blog post, video, or podcast. Make sure your CTA is clear and engaging. This creates a consistent flow of traffic and keeps your audience connected across multiple platforms.

Step Four: Measure and Adjust

Implementing the strategy is one thing, but keeping an eye on your analytics is where the magic happens. See which types of posts and platforms drive the most engaged traffic. Use this data to tweak your strategy and focus more on what works best for your audience.

Step Five: Batch Your Work

When you group similar tasks together, you get more done. For instance, if you’re creating videos, try to record two to three (or even four) at one time. This means you can potentially handle a month’s worth of content in just one session.

The same goes for writing: designate a specific block of time for writing multiple blog posts. This method is not only efficient but also helps you get better and faster with practice.

Bottom Line

Creating one core piece of content each week and repurposing it across your platforms can help you streamline your marketing, stay consistent, and save time. This approach ensures your messaging is clear and cohesive, making your marketing efforts more impactful.

  • Webinar to Blog Series: Transcribe a successful webinar or presentation into a blog series, allowing you to delve deeper into each topic.

Updating and Refreshing Outdated Content

While repurposing, take the opportunity to update and refresh outdated content. This ensures accuracy and relevance, especially for evergreen topics. Make sure to:

Best Practices for Content Planning

As you embark on your content planning journey, keep these best practices in mind:

  • Consistency: Maintain a consistent publishing schedule to keep your audience engaged.

A content calendar allows you to see the big picture of your content strategy, helping you identify any gaps or overlaps in your messaging.

By having a content calendar in place, you can also optimize your SEO efforts. By researching keywords and incorporating them into your content plan, you can improve your visibility on search engine rankings, making it easier for your target audience to find you.

Additionally, a content calendar allows you to repurpose and amplify your core content through social media channels. By strategically sharing and promoting your content across platforms, you can reach a wider audience and increase your brand’s visibility.

Q3 Content Strategy 5 Proven Techniques to Boost Your Service-Based Business info graphic by jen vazquez media

Creating Engaging and Relevant Core Content

Creating engaging and relevant core content is key to capturing your audience’s attention and driving meaningful interactions with your service business. By crafting content that resonates with your target audience, you can establish yourself as a trusted authority and build a loyal following. But how do you create content that truly engages and connects with your audience? Let’s explore some proven techniques that will help you unlock the full potential of your core content.

First and foremost, it’s crucial to understand your audience inside out. Take the time to research and understand their needs, pain points, and aspirations. By gaining deep insights into what makes your audience tick, you can tailor your core content to address their specific challenges and provide valuable solutions. This will not only capture their attention but also position you as a reliable source of information.

Next, focus on storytelling. People are naturally drawn to stories that resonate with their own experiences and emotions. Incorporating storytelling elements into your core content can make it more relatable and memorable for your audience. Share real-life examples, case studies, and anecdotes that illustrate the value of your service. By grounding your content in relatable narratives, you can forge a stronger connection with your audience and keep them engaged.

Another technique for creating engaging core content is to make it visually appealing. Incorporate high-quality images, videos, infographics, and other visual elements that enhance the user experience. Visual content not only grabs attention but also helps break up text-heavy content, making it more digestible and enjoyable for your audience. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words, so leverage visuals to make your core content more impactful.

Additionally, consider incorporating interactive elements into your core content. Interactive content, such as quizzes, polls, surveys, and calculators, encourages active engagement from your audience. By inviting them to participate and interact with your content, you can create a more immersive and personalized experience. This not only boosts engagement but also provides valuable data and insights that can inform your future content strategy.

Lastly, don’t forget the power of emotion in your core content. Content that evokes emotions, whether it’s humor, awe, empathy, or inspiration, has a greater chance of resonating with your audience. Tap into the emotional spectrum of your target audience and craft content that elicits the desired response. Emotionally-driven content is more likely to be shared, commented on, and remembered, which can generate greater visibility and engagement for your service business.

By implementing these techniques, you can create core content that captivates your audience and drives meaningful interactions with your service business. With engaging and relevant content in place, you’ll be well-positioned to optimize your SEO for maximum visibility and take your content strategy to the next level.

Optimizing SEO for Maximum Visibility

In addition to creating emotionally-driven content, it’s crucial to optimize your SEO for maximum visibility. SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is the practice of improving your website’s visibility on search engine results pages. By implementing SEO strategies, you can ensure that your core content is easily discoverable by your target audience.

One key aspect of optimizing SEO is conducting thorough keyword research. By identifying the keywords and phrases that your audience is likely to search for, you can strategically incorporate them into your content. This will increase the chances of your website appearing higher in search engine rankings, making it more likely for your audience to find and engage with your content.

Furthermore, optimizing your website’s meta tags and descriptions can significantly impact your visibility. Meta tags are snippets of text that provide a brief summary of the content on a webpage. By crafting compelling and concise meta tags, you can entice users to click on your website when it appears in search engine results. Similarly, well-written meta descriptions can captivate readers and encourage them to visit your website.

Another SEO technique to consider is optimizing your website’s loading speed. Slow-loading websites can negatively impact user experience and result in higher bounce rates. Ensuring that your website loads quickly will not only enhance user experience but also improve your search engine rankings.

Additionally, creating high-quality backlinks can boost your website’s visibility in search engine results. Backlinks are links from other websites that direct users to your website. When reputable websites link back to your content, it signals to search engines that your website is credible and authoritative. By actively seeking opportunities to earn backlinks from trusted sources, you can improve your search engine rankings and drive more traffic to your website.

By optimizing your SEO, you can increase your website’s visibility and attract a larger audience to your core content. This enhanced visibility will set the stage for the next section, where we will explore how to leverage social media by repurposing your core content, and further expanding your reach and engagement.

Leveraging Social Media by Repurposing Core Content

Another effective strategy for boosting your service business is leveraging social media through repurposing your core content. Social media platforms provide a powerful opportunity to reach a wider audience and engage with potential customers. By repackaging and repurposing your core content, you can extend its lifespan and maximize its impact on social media.

One way to repurpose your core content is by creating visually appealing graphics or infographics that summarize key points or statistics. Visual content tends to grab attention and is highly shareable on social media platforms such as Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook. By repackaging your content in this format, you can present it in a more digestible and appealing way, attracting more views and shares.

Another way to leverage social media is by creating short video clips or animations that highlight the most engaging aspects of your core content. Videos are highly engaging and have the potential to go viral, generating significant reach and engagement. Platforms like TikTok and Instagram Reels are perfect for sharing short, attention-grabbing videos that showcase your expertise and provide value to your audience.

Furthermore, consider transforming your core content into blog posts, articles, or educational guides that can be shared across social media platforms. By repurposing your content in a written format, you can reach audiences who prefer consuming information through reading.
