‘Content is king’. Although this phrase can come across as a bit cliché, it is largely true. Brilliantly-written, targeted, and engaging content can really make your small business website stand out from the crowd.

That’s why it is crucial for you to carefully plan your blog and social media content for your site. It will save you time, improve site creativity and effectiveness, increase your reach and engagement, boost your SEO, and allow you to effectively target high-traffic keywords. What does this all mean? It means more customers and more conversions.

Jonny: Do you have a special editorial calendar program / app? I am still figuring out (after 13+ years of blogging) on how to create an content creation calendar on a regular basis... ;)

Hi Jonny,

In point no. 2, could you talk more about the difference between content that simply generates high traffic and content that generates relevant traffic. I think this is a very important part of the equation.

Hi Heather,

yes totally and thank you for raising this, relevant traffic might be content / links on instagram or twitter, compared to high traffic with SEO benefits from content/links on a high PR website.

ultimately business owners are not looking to be at the top of google they are looking for the till to ring!

Jonny
