There are a number of ways to evaluate your content marketing results to determine which content is most successful. Once you have this information, you can use it to plan your editorial calendar and the future content you wish to publish.

Check Your Traffic Logs

Check your traffic logs to see which pages are your most popular content. The answer might be surprising. You never know what’s going to resonate with your target audience. But once you do, you can create similar content. You can even repurpose the content to turn it into different formats, update it, and move around paragraphs to make it even better.

Check Your Keywords

In your traffic logs, look at the keywords that are driving traffic to your site. Again, the answer may surprise you. Once you see the keywords you are ranking highly on, try to produce similar content to keep readers coming back for more. You can also take your best articles and rewrite them using different keywords.

Your Number of Subscribers

Email marketing is one of the most important forms of content marketing. It helps build a relationship with your target audience and enables you to make sales more easily through the trust that is built.

Create more than one offer that will encourage people to subscribe. Check to see which offers get the most subscribers.

Your Email Marketing Results

Check the logs in your email marketing service to see which emails are getting opened most. Also follow through to see if they are taking action in the email, such as visiting a page or making a purchase.

Keep track of your open rates and your best subject lines. Edit and/or reuse the subject lines as needed.

Plan Your Editorial Calendar

Be consistent with your blog or site content creation and your email marketing. Make sure you contact them often, and give them interesting content so they will look forward to hearing more from you. Track the success of each new piece of content.

Create a Range of Content

When planning the calendar, make sure you create a range of content and track results. Then do more of what works well.

Try checklists, hints, tips, frequently asked questions (FAQs), images, memes, infographics, PowerPoint presentations, and of course videos. Post the content or links to it on social media sites and on your own site.

Track Your Social Media Metrics

Track likes, shares, comments and similar interactions at the various social networks. Upload your videos to YouTube and check your channel statistics. Look at likes and shares. You can allow comments if you wish, but make sure you moderate them.

Track Your Pay Per Click (PPC) Results

PPC does cost money, but you can drive a lot of traffic to your site quickly. Facebook and Twitter offer highly targeted opportunities to market to your niche audience. Measure your click-through rate (CTR) and any subscribers and sales from your ads.

Your metrics are like your rear-view mirror of what has happened, but you can use the information you glean in order to plan more great content.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
