what type of content you should post

where you should be sharing your content

when you should be posting it.

PLUS how often you should recycle your content.

Get an entire content marketing strategy set up and running within your business in just two weeks.
All for one flat fee.

Whether it’s lack of time or energy holding you back, this service has you covered

Effective content marketing strategies have a lot of moving parts. Pulling in more leads—and therefore sales—means:

  • satisfying what search engines (like Google) want from content
  • planning out posting frequency and distribution so it gets in front of as many of the right people as possible
  • understanding what the audience is searching for and then delivering that information in a medium that catches their attention. 

Wrangling all of these details and combining them in a slick strategy that pulls in real results isn’t a one-hour job. And as a small business owner or entrepreneur, your talents lie in seizing profitable opportunities and going after big ideas. But ignoring content marketing isn’t an option.

The undeniable, stats-backed truth is that any business that wants success online needs strategized content marketing. It’s how you keep winning your audience over, attracting new business, and converting leads.

Optimized service or product pages that are well written and designed will only get you so far.

Once a site’s core pages are complete (i.e. they’ve been repeatedly tested so you know they work and secure sales) there’s not much more you need to do with them. You shouldn’t need to keep going over old ground and refreshing them. 

Now’s the time you must turn your attention to planned content campaigns. 

By presenting unmissable content that matches searcher intent and keyword volume, your products and services are more accessible to more of your audience no matter what stage of the buyer journey they’re at. And this is what the Compass Digital Strategies Content Marketing Strategy gives you.

Inside the service you'll find

A shared, easy-to-use Google drive complete with quick links

Three months’ worth of ready-to-go content ideas plus future topics

Master editorial calendar for content organization and distribution

Keyword research complete with search volume and difficulty

Keyword mapping for organized, targeted content across your site

Blog post structure recommendations for fully optimized articles

Irresistible lead magnet ideas that build your marketing list

Publishing and optimization checklists to keep content sharp

Every element is adapted to meet the specific needs of your business and the audience you’re seeking.

Rather than the free, empty templates you could download, this is a highly personalized service. But it feels like everyone says that.

So what’s different here?

Well, the framework comes to you already populated with ideas and data relevant to your company (and only your company). The resources you have available are also considered. The suggestions in your strategy are achievable for your business, which is what makes this a framework you can really work with. You can only blog once a month? The strategy will reflect that. Got the space and equipment to record and edit video? The strategy will reflect that.

The focus of this highly personalized service is keeping it realistic and achievable. Everything is motivated by saving you admin time and keeping content creation stress-free.

Before working with Compass Digital Strategies we weren’t ranking anywhere on the web. We’re now ranking well in numerous keywords, and it wouldn’t have been possible without Barb’s continued testing and research.

You already know why content marketing is important

Content marketing:

  • keeps your site fresh and relevant
  • supports and promotes your core pages
  • builds trust and authority around your business
  • connects with your audience in a way that sales pages can’t
  • helps you go after more keywords and search terms, and so broadens your reach
  • is a more personable way to promote your business, service, or product without annoying your audience.

The ultimate truth that all of these points lead to is this:

Content marketing generates more leads, and therefore sales.

But you know this. You’re not a startup. You’re well aware of the benefits.

What you want now is a strategy in place that’s firmer than a used car salesman’s handshake. 

So while your competitors keep struggling with an approach that’s as effective as herding cats, you’ll be well on your way to getting the results you want and your business needs.
