Questions we discussed

Q1 How did you become a digital marketer? Please share your career story!

I studied both marketing and journalism in college (couldn’t decide!) and ended up getting a job creating content for a digital agency’s SEO team, which seemed like the best of both worlds.

I ended up leading that agency’s SEO & content division until I left to join Moz’s content team. I was there a little over a year before I made the switch to my current position as Director of Brand Content at Botify 🙂

Q2 What is Content Comprehensiveness and why should marketers care?

See this for my full @Moz WBF on the topic but Google says high quality content “has a satisfying/comprehensive amount of content” & “provides a complete/comprehensive description of the topic”

“The Highest rating may be justified for pages with a satisfying or comprehensive amount of very high quality main content”

Q: “What counts as a high quality site?” A: You can answer “yes” to “Does this article provide a complete or comprehensive description of the topic?”

Q3 What should a comprehensive content strategy include?

To make a page comprehensive, ask “Have I answered all the main Qs someone would have about this topic?” Similar Q for a website’s content strategy “Am I covering all the main topics/Qs my audience has, relevant to my product/service?”

Q4 Where to start? How to set up a comprehensive content strategy?

“Content comprehensiveness” is a mantra that can help guide more than just your organic search content! Comprehensive content strategies will include content in the following buckets. Content that…

  1. Addresses a pain point your product/service can solve
  2. Is in high demand
  3. Creates demand through thought leadership
  4. Speaks to a newsworthy topic that your audiences care about
  5. Competitors have but you don’t
  6. Speaks to a question or objection being raised by your prospects or customers
  7. Tells your brand story as a means of improving brand sentiment

Q5 What are your favorite content marketing tools?

The classics! Google Search Console and Google Analytics. They show me how my audience is searching, what they’re finding once they get there, and how they’re interacting with it. Tons of insights in those two tools alone.

Aside from data, the best content tools you can have is your inquisitiveness (to seek answers when you don’t have them), creativity (to present content in interesting ways), and clarity (to help your audience easily find answers).
