Content strategy is considered a highly effective tactic that delivers an irresistible user experience and makes your customers coming back. According to Stratabeat, “80 percent of business decision-makers prefer to get company information in a series of articles, versus an advertisement.” After analyzing when, where, and what users are searching for on your website or community, you can redefine your content strategy to make it capable of closing more cases (improving case deflection). This further allows you to measure the quality of search results which improves the productivity of support reps and makes the process more streamlined.
How to improve your content strategy and support process?
You can improve your content strategy through a detailed content gap analysis that provides you with useful insights into the content performance helping you identify the content gaps and take the required measures to fill those gaps. Content gap analysis makes you aware of what users are searching for, what their queries are, what content pieces they find useful, what the least performing content sources are, and much more.
Therefore, content gap analysis helps you revamp your existing content strategy and align it with the buyer’s requirements at the right stage of the buying cycle. Since the content reaches customers at the right point in their journey, it leads to more deflection of cases that improves the support process. Undoubtedly, this increases the efficiency of support reps too.
For improving the content strategy and support process of your business, it is advisable for you to analyze the gaps in your content strategy by following the steps below:
- Identify the key metrics to achieve your content marketing goals. The key metrics may include – the number of leads generated, cost per visit, social share count, funnel conversion rate and more.
- Measure the performance of your content pieces against the key metrics listed in the step above.
- Perform a content audit to get an inventory of your content and relevant metrics.
- Identify future performance values with effective competitor analysis to get insights into the performance of your competitor’s content.
- Identify the current gaps in your content and create an action plan to fix the issues leading to content gaps.
