Content at its best reliable, helpful, timely, honest is what we need right now. As the world’s teachers, journalists, government agencies, and medical workers respond to the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic, they are reaching the public through content.
The same is true for any brand or business. With physical stores shuttered and events canceled, traditional ways of connecting with customers are no longer possible. Companies are pulling spend from paid display and social in a bid to tighten budgets. And a sharp reduction in media advertising is causing outlets to cut staff along with coverage. As a result, the most effective way to reach your audience today is through your content marketing strategy.

The B2B marketer’s guide to capturing imagination quickly

Article | July 15, 2020

Personalization has come a long way in the past two decades — from the early days of including your recipient’s name in mass email copy, to creating personalized proposals, tailoring content and segmenting audiences. Twenty years ago, these small pockets of personalization were seen as revolutionary for B2B marketers, who typically fall 3-5 years behind the consumer marketing world. Today, for world-class B2B marketers, it’s no longer enough. Seamless, dynamic, real-time personalization is vital.

Article | July 15, 2020

We hope you’ve enjoyed this series on SEO and accessibility. In the final installment, Cooper shows you how the technical SEO strategies you implement across your site can help make it more perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. Video Transcription Hey, Moz fans. Welcome to the latest edition of Whiteboard Friday. I'm Cooper Hollmaier. I've been doing SEO since 2016, and today I work for a large outdoor retailer helping our technical SEO strategy come to life. Thank you so much for attending this series on SEO and accessibility. I hope that you've gained a broad perspective and new tips and tricks for creating content that not only is resonating with your audience, performs well in search, but is also accessible to more people. Today we're going to talk about technical SEO and accessibility. Technical SEO and accessibility Let's dive in. Last time we talked about Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, and you might remember that the four principles of WCAG are perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. Perceivable As a technical SEO, you're probably most concerned with perceivable because your day-to-day operations, your day-to-day work stream involves making sure that the pages, the content, the experiences you're creating are accessible to search engines and perceivable to search engines. A lot of times when we go through SEO recommendations or SEO audits, I hear a lot of common themes, like the header tag is baked into the image and so a search engine can't see it, or the content I'm producing is visible to bots but it's not visible to people. These are issues with base level perception. I want you to take that mindset and consider if you apply that to your whole audience as well.

Making it work for your business is the tricky part – you need every minute and pound you spend to count, and that means leveraging the potential of every facebook post and tweet, every review and every SEO ranking point you can. Step one is making sure your website - the online shop window - both looks professional and, most importantly, works for customers. It should also be mobile responsive, as 52 per cent of all website traffic comes from smartphones.
