Content Marketing Checklist

Marketers sometimes suffer from an “If you build it, they will come” mentality when it comes to lead generation. Sure, if you build a content marketing campaign and promote it across multiple channels, you will likely generate leads.

But if you don’t have a solid understanding of your audience and their needs, then you run the risk of attracting poor quality leads who probably won’t convert into customer.

Use this handy checklist to help you brainstorm your next content marketing campaign:









Content Marketing Checklist

Tips for making your next campaign a success


Is your content highly specific to your target audience?
Is the value proposition on your landing page clear and compelling?
Do you plan on A/B testing your landing page copy, form placement, colors, call-to-action, etc.?
Is your landing page built so that leads can be segmented? This could just be a dropdown in your form that divides leads into company size, role, type of company, etc.
Think about how you will market to your leads after the campaign ends. What do you need to know about them at the sign up stage to market to them in the future?
Where will you promote your content? Will you use social media, relevant message boards, Adwords, LinkedIn ads, etc? Create a promotion plan and calendar. For example, if you will be promoting your content on Twitter, what hashtags will you use? How many Facebook posts will go out, and when will they be timed? Will you promote it with an infographic on Pinterest?
Who will you pitch your content to? Make a list of relevant blogs and contact bloggers about writing a short post about your content (or at least linking to it on their social media properties). This will help your content reach new audiences outside your own network.

Remember that it’s better to have a small database of targeted, sales-ready leads than a huge database of unsorted leads. Your marketing efforts will be more successful if you are able to pinpoint your messaging to a specific audience.
