asking about content marketing

content marketing is increasing day by day that you may know well. content is a vital part of the SEO.
but can you assure that the users will read your content completely? how many of them are reading your content?
this is a very markable question because content should be attractive always.
there are lots of agencies who work for content marketing. but how can you prove that your content is too good?
sorry, I am in confusion, so I am asking this question? can anybody tell me?

How long should it be to write a good quality 500-word article?

How much time should it ideally take to write an original and (at least) a good quality 500-word article?

I’m a newbie in writing, I understand that Newbies would obviously require more time than established writers. But I would like to know if an average/common time frame can be considered for everyone. For me, it takes something in the range of 30 to 45 minutes depending on the subject.
I hope that’s not too long.

Blog content vs. e-commerce conversion?

Hi,

I am not sure if this is a unique problem of mine: I have a webshop and blog at the same domain. Niche area (music industry, focus on media composers/musician, downloadable products, purchases are triggered by emotions rather than problems awareness, kind of lifestyle products), some hundreds visitors a day after 1.5 a year, but most of them lands on the blog and reads articles there. Articles have links to products, all have a usp and the products are not available anywhere else.

Blog content is made around keyword but more around thematic topics, following the latest seo trends. For some niche keyword the site ranks quite well, but it is not in the SERP for the main and most competitive ones. The main point it tries to be educative, entertaining, so overall offering value. The blog articles are quite popular and shared, yet they seem to cannibalize the shop content, so a very few purchases made from blog clickthroughs.

However, when I release a new product and the buzz is happening around the product, they sell well for around 2-3 weeks, then fade out (marketing is intermittent, not everyday task.) to sporadic purchases.

Customers love the products as well, I rarely get less than 5 star reviews.

Any better way to convert readers to buyers?

More time? More articles? More brand-building?

I’d like to hear your experience about this.

thanks,
Baci

Reuse of text from Old site

Hello,

I have some contents (original ones) that I have written for a website. The website is no more online since 4 months. I have another website that am planning to put online in a few days. Can I safely use the texts on my new website without being penalized ? Do I need to make Google aware about it ?

smart and impressive tips for content writing

Before you start with a write-up

1. Know the goal of your content: You should know or identify the purpose of your content.
For instance, what you trying to accomplish.
Is the purpose of the article is to explain a concept, keep a reader on a determined path or develop brand trust?
Whatever goal you decide, keep it in mind before you begin writing.
Knowing your goal will set the tone of your content.

As you write…

1. Include that is relevant: With the goal of your content fresh in mind, write relevant. When you start writing, keep the goal in mind and concentrate on information that supports your goal.

2. Solely you write first: Writing and doing the edit part are two different stages of content development, which says you mustn’t do it simultaneously. When you sit writing, only focus on that; don’t edit. Once the writing is done, you can do the edit part.

Pre- publishing check…

1. Read your content like a critic: If you stumble anywhere or think it’s not appealing, you need to improve there. I never publish any piece of writing before read it loudly several times and unless it appealed me. IF it sounds free flowing, then it gets the green signal to get published.

2. Read backward: If you are frequent to typos and misspellings, then scan your write-up backward to make your brain see the words unexpectedly, instead of consciously seeing them.
