The objective of setting up an editorial strategy for your business is to create a relationship of trust with your community. For this, it is essential to work upstream of the production of its content by asking yourself the right questions:

What is your mission?
Who are your clients?
What are their needs? their problems?
Do they have fears? what are their barriers to buying?
Where do they get the information? on Google ? and what other distribution channels?
What is their path to purchase?

Once you understand how it works, you need to set your goals. Specific objectives, but above all measurable. Do you want to generate more traffic? subscribers? gain notoriety?

For each content, it will be important to specify the call to action (CTA) to allow you to achieve these objectives.

Each content will be planned in an editorial calendar and must contain precise information such as the title, the theme, the format chosen, the distribution channel (if Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, etc.), the deadline, and the date of publication.

Become an expert with your content strategy

Creating relevant content on a regular basis is the best way to ensure an engaged audience. By mastering your subjects perfectly, a bond of trust is gradually established with your community and you gain visibility at the same time. According to several studies, the behavior of buyers is influenced mainly by the quality of their content. If your article is good, there is a good chance that it will go viral, that is to say, that it will be widely shared on social networks.

Thus, we can qualify content marketing as a web marketing strategy to make you stand out. By creating relevant content for your target, you gain their trust and authority. But secretly, you also gain influence. Your audience will follow you because it is you who propose it, you who talk about it. Because you will have understood her needs and have been able to establish a close relationship with her.

This is the strength of a successful editorial strategy: not talking only about you and your commercial offer. But, address your entire community so that it identifies with you by communicating with very specific codes.

More and more influencers seek to reach their target audience in the heart with topics on different themes, using empathy. Their speech, well-formatted, is run in and nothing is left to chance. People recognize each other perfectly, which leads to more shares. More comments. Hence, more visibility.

What you need to remember when talking about editorial strategy is above all to promote relevant and coherent content in line with your values ​​and your personal branding.
