"The results we've achieved from Salience's content marketing efforts have exceeded my expectations. We knew content marketing was a viable route to ROI in general, but were unsure if it would apply to flooring. Thankfully, the results were well beyond viable and I'm excited to continue growing Factory Direct Flooring with content." Paul Hambidge, MD

Content sits at the heart of all your digital channels. It’s one of the biggest services we offer, and one of the best investments you can make for your site. Content strategy isn’t all about creation. It’s about looking at your existing assets and seeing what can be used where or what can be done to enhance or monetise it. Got a whole bed of copy going nowhere? We’ll give it a purpose. Only writing for half of your target market? We’ll show you how to appeal to them all and then some. As an award-winning Chester content marketing agency, we work alongside your team to teach them what we know. We’ll brief up articles and let your writers do the talking or we can set our writing team to task
Once your content strategy is in place, we can start creating new badass content. First, we need to know the brand, the audience and the market. During our content discovery process, we map out who’s doing well in your market already and why what they’re doing is successful. Then we see where opportunities lie and fill the gaps. We build customer profiles and workshop ideas with your insight and help, and we create content frameworks to give us all the best head start. Why do we do all this? People expect an experience that is not only high quality but also tailored to them. And we all remember the 7 ps of planning.
Because nobody wants to read a company blog. This is the place where your awareness content sits. Those articles and assets that engage users in a selfless way. Your brand magazine is the place where you can show off your tone of voice and outline exactly who you are as a company. The shed load of traffic is pretty good, too. It’s your company’s sub-brand, ideal for those in a reputation-impacted industry to build a new name independent of your full site. The end game is to create a magazine that subscribers flock to again and again. This is your owned audience. Find your niche and serve it well.
The delicious filling within your magazine sandwich.
Your editorial articles give you the voice to discuss newsworthy trends and celebrate seasonality. They also give your company the best chance of ranking for popular search terms that your main site won’t.
We create content when it’s needed and when it serves a purpose. This keeps you current, vibrant and en pointe.
We’re specialists in editorial, so expect nothing less than our A game.
‘I saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip-flops, so I bought army pants and flip-flops.’ If Mean Girls taught us anything, it’s that influencers are so called for a reason. Using carefully selected experts in your market, we can engage audiences that we otherwise might not reach. We’ve had designers, psychologists, marines, explorers, sailors, hotel inspectors to name a few. What does that do for your business? It makes you relevant, desirable and salient.
Like Wikipedia but reliable. Also known as consideration content, this is the place to answer all relevant questions and share the right kinds of advice. We find this through keyword and market research, alongside audits of what you already have. Advice centres can have articles, guides, eBooks, assets and tools, all in the name of education. Evergreen stuff that’ll stay relevant for years. People who come to you for advice are more likely to trust you. Trust equals investment. Investment equals revenue.
With recent Google algorithm updates focusing on E-A-T, resource hubs and guide content are becoming more and more important. In terms of search, perhaps most important. Quite simply, search engines absolutely expect you to guide and advice your customer through their journey.
It’s not enough to describe and sell. It’s imperative you offer advice too. But it’s not wholly selfless, take a look at this article on how leveraging guide content is key to maximising your category performance. Here you’ll see how with the right internal link structure, clear language and genuinely helpful guides, you can compete in spaces you never thought possible. At our Chester content marketing agency, we work closely alongside your expertise to make sure the content we produce sings as best it can. You’re the experts in what you do, we’re the experts in presenting that in different forms for different audiences.
Getting your content to the top when we know it can be done. Content optimisation works because it takes a job you’ve already done well and, using SEO insight and market knowledge, makes it perform better. Tired of being on page 2 for a juicy term? We
eat drink juicy terms for breakfast. And by drink we mean we get you on page one. Doing it proactively means we spend resource wisely. We don’t waste our time or your money. And we’ll only do it if we truly think we’ll get results.
It all depends on what you need. Optimisation can range from changing a few H2s on a blog post through to combining posts together to stop them cannibalising each other for the same keyword. Some things we might pick apart when optimising your content:
It takes your content from unseen to top of the SERPs. Whether a simple tweak or a big overhaul, the results speak volumes. And it’s all tailored to you.
Too good to ignore, too difficult to copy. If you stick to this rule, you have the right start. Our digital assets come in many forms, but they all exist to gain links. Infographics, videos, quizzes, whitepapers and the rest. Whether it’s branded research or selfless insight that the press can’t resist, our story team love a good creative campaign.
Your name in lights. The reason why publications are seen as trustworthy is a high standard of editorial control. People trust what they already know and publications understand what their audiences respond to. Digital PR helps break us through that barrier and get your name seen by new audiences. We’ll only outreach our work to channels we believe will have a genuine interest, putting it in the right hands from the get-go. This gives us the best chance of placing work and getting coverage.
Bloggers are your secret weapon. When implemented correctly, engaging the ever-growing blogging community is a powerful tool offering more consistency and flexibility than Digital PR. This approach is one of the most consistent ways to gain mid-tier links to your site or digital assets. When done as part of a wider PR mix, blogger engagement is invaluable. Gaining links in this way gives us more control over their placement and targeting by finding bloggers within your niche. Every link counts.
Remember earlier when we spoke about guide and advice content?
Well, those consideration pieces offer more than just the ability to boost your categories. Throw twenty people in the same room and listen to all the different ways they say, “Hello, how are you?”.
Understanding this variety of language is key to good search performance and we’re experts in hunting these variants. We’ll find the questions your customers ask in a million different ways and find one answer to suit. While we’d like to pretend its magic, it’s really quite simple to turn a 150 volume search into a 5k search.
First point of call is exploring the search landscape for similar articles and working out how we can go bigger and better than what already exists. While doing this, we’ll collate every keyword those pages rank for and create a roadmap for achieving multiple KW ranks in one editorial piece. This drives traffic, builds brand, and often can begin the journey to conversion.
We know how Google reads your site and how it decides which questions you’re answering. This gives us the opportunity to target absolutely hundreds of keywords where another content marketing agency would target one. We also explore the relevant peripheral questions so that visitors to your site don’t ever feel the need to go elsewhere. This doesn’t mean bloat and it doesn’t mean spam – rather, a one-stop-shop that doesn’t miss a trick.
Our writers answer questions in as few as words as possible. We’re not here to waste time. There’s no point wearing a ball-gown to water the plants. When the wow-factor is needed, we deliver, but most of the time, users just want the answers in as few clicks as possible.
Our UX team get to work on how we present this best. For those ready to buy, expect a streamlined experience. For those not quite so sure, we’ll direct them to persuasive copy or a guide-post and provide the answers they need before pulling them back towards conversion.
With clean and logical internal links, and through the use of simple elements like accordion copy, we provide every user with what they need, when they need it.
There’s a lot of furore about how Google are killing e-commerce sites by presenting web content through SERP features such as snippets, knowledge graphs, people also ask answerboxes and more.
But where others see danger, we see opportunity.
We’ve been fans of SERP features for a while now. Why spend a year optimising for a position 1 result when you could get to the top of the SERP with a half-hour optimisation?
We’ll audit your site and your competitors to find the keywords which result in valuable SERP features. We’ll work out which are likely to boost CTR and draw people into a user journey that they didn’t even know they wanted. Some of the features we’ll look at to make sure we take up real estate on the SERP include:
At our content marketing agency in Chester, we have a number of SCHEMA experts and content strategists who know how to dominate in the most competitive of spaces. We look to work with what our clients already have, find the extra opportunities and then give Google what it wants.
By playing ball with how they want content to be structured, you can quickly jump ahead of more authoritative players and burst through the kitchen door to gorge upon the feast.
