2. Blend emotional rejoinders with relevant content
Some marketer still follow the conventional way of SEO strategies – Pick keywords, scatter those selected keywords throughout the content and expect user will entice towards their published content. However, earlier this was one of the successful SEO strategies and has helped business and brands gain revenue and value, both. But today without creating meaningful content and sprinkling keywords on the content may result into bored and disguise users because today users just want a relevant and user-centric content that stirs well with their emotions. And, if they find that content, they would likely find it interesting and would engage with it, too while ensuring that they could share that content on their social media channels.
To blend emotional responses with your content, you must begin with compassion. Put yourself into your consumers’ shoes and think about how you can arouse an emotional response that can meet their business pain points.
