3.Platform-specific Content:

In this digital age, there are numerous channels to publish your content. The major platforms that industries are capitalizing are Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and of course, blogs. It is paramount to establish your presence across all these platforms to make the most of your marketing strategies.

Posting the same content on all the channels will not work as each channel has a different set of audience, it is wiser to tweak your content for the platform you are going to publish it.

For example, if you are posting a blog post about a medical topic, you make it comprehensive, and it works well in blogging sites. But if you are going to post the same in your Facebook page it will not make sense as the audience in Facebook are there for reading blogs instead, you can post short snippets and exciting facts along with the link to your blogpost.

4.Track Your Content Strategy:

Your content marketing strategy does not end with creating medically related content in different forms like blog posts, images and videos, it extends to tracking the performance of your content. Tracking your content strategy will provide you invaluable insights on what content performs well, and it enables you to create more content related to the topics that are doing well.

The key to utilizing the best from your content strategy is to understand the performance of your content and updating it consistently to engage better with the audience. Social media provide tools to track the performance of your posts, and there are many plugins in the market which you can integrate with your website to get the reports about how much time your audiences are spending on a particular page.
