Enter content marketing specialists. These experts know how to elevate your everyday messaging, giving you the “what to say on the daily,” the “where” to say it, and the “how” to make that messaging evergreen. It’s a heavyweight punch of relief for all those wondering where their next post idea was coming from.

It’s high time your content got a major upgrade. Let’s take a look at how content marketers can help streamline your conversations and make creating content simpler.

What Is Content Marketing?

It’s basically the art of creating and sharing valuable and relevant content to attract and engage a specific audience. It’s like making a delicious cake, but instead of flour and sugar and vanilla, you’re using blog posts, videos, social media, and all sorts of other content to win over your target market. And when it’s done right, it can be a game-changer for your business or brand.

You know you should be counting on content marketing (that is, using content to market your services or programs) to reach your audience and create meaningful relationships, but what is a content marketer?

Oh, if only someone could step in and really dial up the content strategy so you know what to say and have it generate steady leads for your business…

Enter the content marketing specialist. These magical creatures can elevate your digital messaging to the next level by creating content that not only grabs your audience’s attention but also helps establish a more engaging online presence. Whether they’re whipping up eye-catching visuals or penning witty one-liners for social media posts, these experts know how to make the most of the platform and your message–weaving a consistent narrative through all your content to build up the Know, Like, And Trust Factor. So, if you’re ready to level up your content game, these are the folks you want on your marketing team.

What Role Do Content Marketing Specialists Play?

So, you’re probably wondering what role do content marketing specialists actually play? Do they just sit in their ivory tower, giving strategic advice on topics like “what to say”, “where to say it”, and “how to evergreen it”?

The answer is both yes and no. Content strategists largely do just that–consult and share a strategy for you to implement.

But content marketing specialists are much more than strategists; they are also doers. They’ll provide the strategic guidance your team needs to make informed decisions, but they’ll also handle the day-to-day work of producing and publishing content. This way you don’t have to spend time worrying about executing content creation; instead, you can get back to focusing on what matters—driving results for your business.

Tips for Finding the Right Content Marketing Specialist for You

So you’ve decided to bring on a content marketing specialist, but now what? Picking the right person for the job can be tricky business—but it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few tips for finding the Content Marketing Specialist who will take your content strategy to the next level:

  1. First and foremost, look for someone who understands your vision and is passionate about helping you meet your goals. Ask questions about their qualifications, experience, and track record to make sure they can deliver tangible results. 
  2. Decide if you want to work with a solo provider that can blend into your team or become one of many clients in marketing agencies–where you could get lost among the many but you’d benefit from a wider range of experience.
  3. Once you’ve found someone with the right skillset and experience, interview them to find out if they’re the right fit for you. Research shows–a hire that drives results isn’t the only decision. Oftentimes clients let go of a contractor simply because of personality mismatches, especially when you’re asking them to create content in your voice! Make sure they understand your messaging goals and how you want them to help make them happen before embarking on any project together. With the right content specialist on your side, you can look forward to improved SEO rankings, increased engagement rates, and overall better visibility for your brand.
  4. Hire them for a test content run outside of a formal package. This may involve them creating a piece of content that’s long-form (blog post, video script, etc) and showing how they’d create smaller, social media friendly pieces out of it. It could also involve asking them to develop a short content plan for you or auditing your current email marketing.

What skills should a content marketing specialist have?

  • writing and editing content
  • basic SEO keyword research and SEO best practices
  • how to set up an editorial calendar aka content calendar
  • sourcing graphics to pair with written content
  • a track record of effective content marketing
  • content database management or setup
  • organized and able to work on deadline (I can’t believe I have to say this…!)

  • video editing for repurposed content
  • writing skills in multiple styles or voices

  • digital marketing in paid media

Hiring a content person, whether they work in team with you or you become a client of their agency–is a personal decision. It’s okay to let your feelings be involved when high-quality content representing your personal brand is on the line!
