Try these uncommon blogging strategies

Looking for a new blogging strategy? Trying to reach more people and increase engagement? Check the stats. Search Engine Journal put together some statistics about blogging, and found that many bloggers aren't implementing the most successful strategies! For example they said, "Only 18% of those surveyed are publishing articles of 2000 words or more. Out of those who are publishing 2000+ word article, 42% say it drives strong results." Also, the frequency at which articles are posted is going down and few post more than once a week. However, 46% of those surveyed that post more than once a week said they see strong results. It's not always viable to post 2,000 word articles multiple times a week - that's why we think a healthy mix of short and long blog posts drive the best results.

Athletes have always been marketing powerhouses. However, their place in advertising is shifting lately.

Adweek said, "Brands are no longer using such figures to simply catch the eye of their audience but instead focus their attention on finding stars that truly align with, represent and share their values."

Instead of just putting their face with products, companies are becoming deeper and more purposeful with their branding. This is a good strategy because customers are also becoming more intentional with their dollars. They want to support companies that align with their values. Working with an athlete in this way both grabs customers' attention and shows the values they want to portray.

Many content marketers focus on just the buyer's decision stage for higher conversion. However, it's a good idea to look at the buyer's entire journey instead of just one stage. The three parts of the buyer's journey are the awareness stage, the consideration stage, and the decision stage. If you only focus on the decision stage, you're missing two vital parts.
