A Quick Guide to Working With a Third-Party Provider for Your Web Content

Working With a Third-Party Provider for Your Web Content

The demand for rich and robust web content is higher than ever. With businesses competing to attract the most attention for their brand, producing content that achieves multiple goals is now an essential investment. Content is your gateway to outreach—an opportunity to develop a positive reputation and start generating more conversions in your marketing campaigns.

The difference between quality content produced within a sound strategic framework and copy created without direction is easily apparent to the average reader. For entrepreneurs and businesses, finding the time and the capability in-house to produce the full range of content that a successful campaign requires may be an impossibility. Working with an outside business as your partner in this pursuit can yield excellent results—but how do you get started?

Join us for a quick look at the benefits of these services and how you can structure a partnership for success.

Why Work With an Outside Company?

Putting the messaging of your marketing into the hands of a third party can be a daunting step to take. How can you be sure that someone from outside the business can understand not only what you do but also how you prefer to communicate about it? When you step back to consider the big-picture benefits of sharing the reins, the potential value in identifying a suitable partner becomes clear:

  • It's often a cost-effective alternative to hiring a dedicated in-house team
  • You can put your focus back into other critical areas of the business
  • You can scale easily to deploy larger campaigns
  • Long-term partnership fosters a team that is deeply familiar with your brand message and voice

What do you need to know about working with partners?

Identify a Team You Can Trust

The first step is always to find a team that has the capability to deliver the content that you need at the standards that you demand. With so many content creators in the market, it's essential to separate out those who do not have the skillset to help you achieve your marketing campaign's goals.

How can you establish trust? Client testimonials, extensive examples of past work, certifications, and experience can all play a role in establishing the confidence that you need to proceed. Don't hesitate to ask a potential partner what they can bring to the table for you—consider each conversation a partnership job interview.

Developing a Sensible Web Content Strategy

In some cases, you may only need one or two pieces of web content to fill in the gaps within an in-house campaign. In others, you may wish to engage a team to fully supply all the content for an entirely new website, blog, or marketing push. Know your goals and communicate them to your content team. Collaborate to develop a strategy —whether it includes a new set of landing pages, an email drip campaign, or a combined effort across digital media.

Set Measurable Benchmarks and Milestones

Evaluate the success of your partnership to ensure that the team you selected meets expectations. Be clear about what you anticipate in writing quality, language and tone, and delivery time. Consider establishing a periodic review to evaluate the effectiveness of your campaign, and don't overlook the importance of web analytics in providing a clear view of how users find, react, and respond to new content.

Plan for Scale and Understand Capacity

How much content do you need, and how quickly? Some teams may not have the staff capacity to respond to sudden, high-volume content requests. Others excel in delivering content on or ahead of time for urgent projects. Have conversations with your content partner about volume and understand how often you can turn to them for extensive or timebound assistance.
