5. Always Consider Ways To Repurpose Content

Core to accomplishing goals with company content is ensuring that content is appropriately recycled across different formats. Was that recent blog post something that could be repurposed for a webinar, company podcast, social media post or proactive talking points for PR? Every time a piece of content is created, ask yourself if you can see this working in another format to increase engagement. – Jason Wulfsohn, AUDIENCEX

6. Find Out What Different Kinds Of Content Achieve

Content is an effective way to draw in new prospects, so determine what your visitors are interested in. Find out what kinds of content generate clicks and what kinds increase the amount of time visitors spend on your website. Then, use the data as a guide as you plan monthly content creation. Create more topics of interest, and you’ll develop a recurrent readership. – Hannah Trivette, NUVEW Web Solutions

7. Focus On Creating A Defined ‘Content Library’

Companies tend to focus on frequency and accumulate mountains of unread content. Instead, focus on creating a defined “content library” and become the best, most engaging and thorough resource for the audience that you’re seeking. This often means collapsing dozens of articles or blog posts into one, enhancing them with designs and video, then redirecting traffic to those well-designed pages. – Douglas Karr, DK New Media

8. Sync Your Content Up With The Audience’s Motivations

As a behavior designer, my best tip for analyzing and managing content has to do with syncing your content up with the motivations of your audience. Basically, identify which behaviors you want to see your audience perform, then align your contact with the psychological profile behind each communication channel. – Roger Hurni, Off Madison Ave

9. See What Audiences Find Educational Or Entertaining

You need to look at what educates or entertains your audience. How is your content connecting with them? Blog posts, social media updates and more all need to be able to attract visitors and turn them into leads, so look at your content and see which stories and information really grab your audience’s attention. – Lisa Montenegro, Digital Marketing Experts – DMX

10. Integrate Your Marketing Plan And Content Strategy

Create an integrated marketing plan and content strategy to guide your team’s efforts. Make sure that document captures marketing, communications, PR, social and paid tactics and contains a theme and strategy that supports organizational goals. Decide which KPIs you’ll track up front and report on results monthly. Create feedback loops to dynamically inform your content. – Mary Ann O’Brien, OBI Creative

11. Don’t Rely Too Much On Technology

Pay attention to your audience first. It is tempting to use all the analytics you can possibly find, as every tool promises outstanding results, but there is no guarantee that your readers and followers will like it. Always monitor audience engagement because this is the best content performance indicator. – Solomon Thimothy, OneIMS

12. Categorize Content Based On Audience Segments

Categorizing content based on audience segments is a critical step in managing and analyzing it. By mapping your audience, you can better align content and calls to action with specific audience segment needs. This also allows you to more effectively gauge content performance vis-à-vis marketing objectives for each audience segment, then revise content marketing tactics accordingly. – Lars Voedisch, PRecious Communications

13. Maintain An Easy-To-Access Reference Point

Make your content strategy the center of the universe for all of your producers by maintaining an easy-to-access reference point that includes content pillars, samples and performance metrics for each pillar by channel. Keep it updated regularly so that it can serve as the starting point for every message. – Russ Williams, Archer Malmo

14. Create A Content Calendar

Content calendars can be used to manage and plan content as well as ensure that tone of voice and colors are consistent across all content. Study the insights on different social platforms to figure out which content your audience relates to and engages with the most. – Jonas Muthoni, Deviate Agency
