In terms of trends in content marketing, the future is very promising, as long as it remains focused on the three pillars of digital marketing – authority, social, and AI-assisted content. In this article, I'll discuss how each of these pillars will play a crucial role in content marketing in 2018.

AI-assisted, human-produced content

The use of AI in content marketing is a new frontier for many businesses. Not only is AI capable of creating content for the web, but it can also interpret user data and learn from past behavior. YouTube uses several AI algorithms to determine user preferences and make recommendations. Silby, for example, can identify spam emails. Other examples of AI-assisted content include financial reports and product descriptions. While AI is not yet a substitute for human-produced content, it has a wide array of advantages for businesses and consumers alike.

User-generated content

If you're not sure what user-generated content (UGC) is, then let's look at a couple of examples. Brands such as Anthropologe use UGC brilliantly. They combine professionally styled images of their products with pictures taken by customers. For example, one post shows a model wearing an Anthropologie dress and another shows the same dress on a five-foot-nine woman in a size four. By blending the two, they create a seamless shopping experience for their customers.

Longform quality content

Whether or not you're planning to write longer pieces for your content marketing strategy in 2018, the future of this marketing method is still in flux. The debate over whether longform content is better for SEO isn't new, but one thing remains clear – long-form content gets more traffic than short-form content. According to SEMrush, articles over 7,000 words generate significantly more traffic than those between 900 and 1,200 words. What's more, long-form content positions your brand as a thought leader in the space.

Snackable content

The future of content marketing is snackable, but what is it? This new form of content provides consumers with a quick snippet of information. Social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest are built around short pieces of content. Brands can use these snippets to tell a story. Short content can also be used as a teaser, leading to more traditional content.

Personalized content

As users become more accustomed to personalized content, marketers are implementing it. Companies like Netflix and Amazon have made personalization a standard feature of their websites. But only about 33 percent of marketers are doing it right. The best companies are using data to create personalized content. This includes browsing histories, preferences, and even behavior. This way, you can tailor the content for each visitor and maximize its effectiveness. If you want to make personalization work for your brand, you have to learn how to use it right.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. You could also hire someone to create unique blog articles every day.

Or you could hire someone to manage your social media accounts, promote your blog, and help you grow your business.

Can automatic blogs infringe copyright rights?

How To

How to Autoblog

Autoblogging allows you to write and publish articles online. This is a great way for you to build your website's traffic and get your name out there. This strategy can be used for any website promotion, no matter if it's a blog or a company. The key to successful autoblogging is finding a niche that people want to read about, then writing quality content they'll enjoy. Once you've found your audience, start posting regularly.

The best place to find ideas for autoblogs is at sites like Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Delicious, etc. There are many approaches to autoblogging. Try different methods until you find your best. These tips will help you get started.

  1. Pick a niche. An Autoblog that appeals to a particular audience should be found. If you try to reach everyone, it might be difficult to get traction. You should choose something that interests and then learn all you can about it.
  2. Writing well is a challenge when you start blogging. Don't worry if you don't know how to write yet; just keep practicing! Practice makes perfect.
  3. Be consistent – Autoblogging requires consistency. Posting new content every day isn't going to work very well. Write posts once a week. This allows you to practice and enhance your skills before publishing.
  4. Have fun – When you're starting, it's easy to forget why you decided to start blogging in the first place. Remember that blogging is meant to be fun. You should take time for yourself once in a while to relax and unwind.
  5. Create relationships – Blogging isn't their only job. Instead of building relationships with those who share their passion, bloggers spend too much time worrying about the next thing they'll say. Make sure to comment on blogs that are of interest to you and leave comments for other blogs. You'll soon find friends.
  6. Use social media – Social media is an important part of autoblogging because it allows you to connect directly with your readers. Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn are great tools to connect with your audience.
  7. Promote – Once your followers are established, you can start to promote your Autoblog. You can share links to your posts via social networks, email newsletters and forums. Include a link back from your site in the comments.
  8. Get feedback – After blogging for a while, ask your readers for feedback. Ask your readers to share their opinions on what they liked, disliked, and what they'd like to hear from you. Listen to them and make suggestions for future posts.
  9. Automate- Once you have some experience, automating parts will make your workflow much more efficient. For example, you may decide to create RSS feeds for your posts instead of manually updating your blog.
  10. Networking – Don't forget about networking! Join groups related to your topic, attend events, and meet people in person. These connections will be valuable later.

There are many ways you can autoblog. Experiment until you find what works for you. Good luck!
