Market Research is Your Best Friend
Market research can change so much in how you approach your content creation, plus it’s all right at your fingertips. Two valuable ways to research the market you want to serve include:
Facebook Groups: Establish a few keywords that you would use in your business, then search in popular Facebook groups related to your brand to review the questions or pain points that your customers have.
Instagram: Pay attention to what people are discussing on Instagram—including on your competitors’ pages.
Establish the Foundation of Your Brand
The foundation of your brand answers so many questions in regards to how you serve your audience. Ask yourself the following questions:
Who are you?
What do you do?
Who do you serve?
What’s their problem?
How do you fix their problem?
Once you’ve identified the foundation of your brand, you can create content that serves the purpose of your business.
Establish Pillars for Your Brand
Content pillars are topics you’ll want to discuss based on the problems you find for your clients in your market research. Once you’ve determined your content pillars, you can create content that supports each of them.
Educating your clients based on content pillars will help you establish authority in the industry and allows our clients to trust you. Approaching your content creation with these pillars in mind allows you to feed your goals and meet your audience’s needs at the same time.
Building trust with your audience while also serving them, allows you to better sell and convert them into paying customers.
Serve Your Audience by Solving Their Problems
When you avoid selling to your you audience, you’re second guessing your ability to serve them and solve their problems. Your solution to their problems is the simplest form of content creation.
In your content creation, continue to highlight the problems they’re facing and be the solution they need to hire.
