Filler content is better than nothing

Content Marketing

If a majority of the content that you put out is “filler,” than your audience or rather, your customer base will stop looking at your content because “filler content” holds no value. It is better to take more time creating better content than to simply inundate social media with content that has no value.

Source or develop content that provides your audience & customer base with something that they can relate to. Articles that are relevant to your industry but also give your customers interesting information provides value and is a great way to help gain exposure but not inundate your customer with information solely about your business.

Decreased value will lead to decreased interest in your product or service. Some customers in your audience may even begin to associate your product or service with dis-value because your social presence creates an aura of quantity rather than quality.

“If I had more time, my content would be better”

Finding time for social content can be challenging

Taking 10 or 20 minutes out of your day to focus on content creation for your company helps keep your company’s content fresh and new. Taking this time out of your day will also leave you feeling less stressed because you know that you will have time every day to plan or create instead of “half-a&*ing” content at the last minute.

Beautiful content = larger audience & more leads

Beautiful Content

Unless you’re a travel agency or clothing company, beautiful content does not always equate more leads. For example, if you’re a plumber, customers don’t want to see stock images of shiny pipes on your social media (save that for the website). They’d rather see real projects that your company has completed… even if they are the most visually appealing. Showing real projects and or videos of job sites shows the customers what to expect but also how you and your team work.
