Questions we discussed

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

I got into digital marketing by accident. I was looking for remote work one Sunday evening when I saw a job ad for an agency hiring remote copywriters. I applied and got the job.

I worked with the agency as a generalist copywriter for 18 months before going freelance and niching down in SEO copy during the pandemic

Q2 How is SaaS content strategy different from ecommerce content strategy?

Let me start by saying that I don’t like eCommerce. I don’t touch it or go near it. I think eCommerce is layered and complex in terms of how you look at keywords, create product pages, optimize pages and build a content strategy.

Everything seems to be sales driven with e-commerce with little thought to post-purchase or education and that’s because most of the industry is fast-moving with some seasonal keywords.

It’s also crazy competitive with tons of pages required to rank for product keywords I feel more clarity with SaaS. There’s usually a clear route on what needs to be done to establish authority quickly, even in a saturated market space.

We’re optimizing for all stages of the buyer’s journey with a focus on education as part of building a long-term relationship rather than an immediate sale.

Q3 Which SaaS brands can be good examples of a content strategy done well?

HubSpot is an example of what happens when you enter early and corner the market. I love how they diversify with videos, courses, pdfs, report, case studies, long-form content. You corner the market so completely, everyone is playing catchup and 2nd place forever.

Canva is an example of aggressive growth and what you can achieve when you have a large content team. Their content moat is powered by topic clusters and links…goodness, so many backlinks! One of the most impressive I’ve ever seen.

MarketMuse and Clearscope for prioritizing education through webinars. They offered value-based webinars with amazing guests who teach you something. It’s educational, but tied to their value prop which is a win-win.

Q4 How to launch a content marketing strategy for a SaaS startup?

The first step is not keyword research. Nope, it’s ideation Identify the overarching word you want to be known for when people think of your brand. Then, find a keyword with the most search volume for the word. Everything you do will flow from this keyword.

Next, understand who is searching for that keyword. What do they know? What are the knowledge gaps? What tools are they using? What are the common complaints and praises? A buyer persona guides keyword research, VOC, and foundational content.

Do competitor research to identify low-volume and highly profitable keywords. The big mistake I see a lot of brands make is having high ambition in the early days. NO.

Prioritize commercial keywords and topics that allow you to show authority Start small Adopt a cluster approach and group subsections correctly to ensure you’re not writing more than you need (save money and avoid keyword cannibalization).

Write semantically rich content that fulfills search intent. It’s a great way to rank for many keywords and improve the reading experience. Continuously find opportunities to rank quickly and build authority Then, Optimize Distribute Build links Measure.

Q5 What are your favorite content marketing tools?

I just published an article on this question.

But if I had to get specific Frase for the comprehensive list of topics Keywords Everywhere for quick research Semrush for large projects MarketMuse for content briefs.
