Why Do You Need A Marketing Insight

Try shooting a target blindfolded. How would you fare?

How about I spun you around a few times too, so you had no idea what direction you were shooting?

That’s exactly what marketing without insight is like. Sure, you’re pumping out keyword-oriented content, but you have no idea of what works.

There are countless reasons why you need marketing insight. The four most important ones I can think of right now are:

1. Keep An Eye On The Competition

What kind of content are your competitors creating? How is it performing in search and social media? What keywords are bringing them big profits?

Finding answers to these questions will help you create content that actually gets traffic. If you see that a particular keyword gets your competitor tons of traffic, you can bet that targeting similar keywords will do the same for you.

2. Find New Content Ideas

Knowing what kind of content actually gets shares and search traffic will help you find ideas for your own site.

For example, if you see that list-based posts targeting specific interest groups (like the “10 Things Only Gamers Will Understand” posts you see on Buzzfeed) get a ton of shares, you can create more content in a similar vein and get a slice of the traffic.

I have used this tactic multiple times both here and our other sites with great success.

What websites are linking to your competitors? What kind of content gets the most backlinks? Who is sharing your competitor’s content on social media?

Once you have the answers to these questions, it becomes much easier to build backlinks. For example, if you see that a competitor gained a link from a ‘Resources’ page, there’s a good chance you can jump in and get a backlink as well.

4. Engage With People Who Promote Your Content

People who share, retweet and like your content are your most important assets. If you can find out who these people are and engage with them, you can multiply your network manifold.
