How Quality Over Quantity Can Change Your Approach To Marketing
You’re Told To Pump Out Content Constantly, But More Is Not Always A Good Thing
Any good business owner knows that branding and marketing are key to your success as a business. While certain brands like Microsoft or Coca-Cola benefit from being massive corporations with global exposure, the average small- to mid-sized business needs to leverage content marketing to build their traffic and keep all eyes on them.
And we get it. In today’s fast-paced society, all of us are go-go-go, especially when it comes to marketing. You’re constantly told that you need to release several blogs a day. You’re reminded every single second that you need to be uploading high-quality pictures to your social media profiles or you’re going to fall into the void of forgotten businesses.
As you may very well know, there’s not one singular path to success. There are certain rules that should be followed. There are certain systems that should be leveraged. But no one ever achieved success just by following the way that things are supposed to be.
If the way things should be doesn’t work for you, you should feel okay breaking the mold.
A lot of today’s expectations when it comes to digital marketing only wear people out. What you should be doing is what feels best for you and for your business.
Are you tired of scheduling a month of social media content ahead of time and trying to come up with 60 pieces of content in one weekend? Stop it.
Are you over sending your sales team to every networking or marketing event to try to meet new people and keep up with all the newest marketing trends essentially burning them out? Cut it out.
Your strategy is your own, and you don’t have to wear your fingers to the bone in order to be successful. In fact, a better strategy is the Marie Kondo method: if it doesn’t spark joy, it’s time to get rid of it.
Focus On Quality Over Quantity
The desire to be at your peak and create consistently high volumes of high-quality content is going to impact you sooner or later. Additionally, this type of strategy will only result in content that will translate into less effective or professional-looking content over time.
The best strategy to adopt when the typical strategies aren’t working for you is quality over quantity. This approach offers a ton of benefits.
- It allows you to do what you love and create meaningful, authoritative content that you can sustain over time.
- It makes your content more enjoyable for your target audience.
- It frees you up to focus on other aspects of your business that demand your attention.
- It keeps you from becoming overwhelmed by your content strategy and creating content where it’s not needed.
- It demonstrates that marketing is about impact and engagement, NOT volume.
- The list goes on…
