Tactical is the word that underlines every effective content strategy – one that’s able to establish a considered game plan towards genuine audience engagement and, ultimately, key KPIs. It introduces a targeted ecosystem of content that is backed by research and a sharpened forward vision.
Think of a content strategy as the crucial groundwork for any marketing plan. For tech startups, it’s a roadmap that guides success, especially within technology’s online realm. You can’t be missing the mark in an industry in which you hope to thrive!
Let’s dive into the importance of a content strategy for a tech startup and find out how you can ensure your website, social media, blog, email or other content reaches and connects with the right audiences – every time!
What is a content strategy?
A content strategy sets the foundation for the creation, structure and governance of content. In essence, it prompts a business to ask itself why. Why are you creating content. It’s not about throwing stuff at a wall and seeing what sticks.
Is it to advertise offerings?
Boost brand awareness?
Strengthen audience relationships?
Once you’ve answered these questions, you’ll be able to set actionable goals, objectives and metrics of success that you are able to measure against and refine down the road.
Now we know why you’re looking to a strategy, next we need to consider what a strategy can do for your tech startup.
1. Defines your objectives
Forces a business to ask itself why. Why are you creating content? It’s not about throwing stuff at a wall and seeing what sticks. Is it to advertise offerings? Boost brand awareness? Strengthen audience relationships? Once you’ve answered these questions, you’ll be able to set actionable goals, objectives and metrics of success that you are able to measure against and refine down the road.
2. Identifies your target audience
Defines a clear cross-section of people, communities and businesses that a startup can engage. As you explore audience demographics, you’ll be able to create a distinct persona that encompasses key wants, needs, concerns, passions and priorities. From here, you can identify the ideal mode of communication that connects them all and the kind of content that best resonates. It’s about understanding a group that “gets” your offering and messaging.
3. Analyses the market and your competitors
Allows you to zoom out and see who you’re brushing shoulders with in the tech space. It’s a chance to capture your market’s segments, size and prevailing trends while also securing your point of difference. You’ll be able to note market gaps that established businesses fail to fill and areas where you vision can scale without friction.
4. Explores your offerings
Mobilises a comprehensive exploration of the product, service or solution you will introduce to the market. This is where you’ll draw from your previous findings to justify why your vision and business has potential, building confidence in its relevance and demand. It’s an opportunity to flesh out your offering’s distinguishing features and isolate points to highlight in upcoming content. Exploring your brand story can also help characterise your approaches.
5. Creates a roadmap
One that’s actionable, tailored and easy to follow. It’s an ABC guide backed by a deep dive into your unique situation and context, bolstered by measurable and clear goals. Not only will you have a clear direction, but you’ll know how you’re using each channel.
Are you using email marketing to provide exclusive content?
Social media to entertain top of funnel consumers?
Blogs to showcase your thought-leadership?
6. Is easily revised
The best content is rooted in the present – adaptable to market trends, audience demands and industry movements. The metrics and goals you isolated throughout the early stages of the strategy will inform your business’ next steps and ensure you’re always ahead of the curve. They’ll outline strengths and weaknesses in your content and marketing approach that you can appropriate for better.
