Hello - I’m Alan from Blackad.

Lots of marketing professionals find it hard to reconcile their brand messaging with their search optimisation.

The brand copywriters fixate on tone of voice. Because it’s got to sound good, right?

And the SEO people focus on keywords. Which does the brand voice precisely no favours.

All while the poor marketing professional is left struggling to hit their messaging goals – not to mention their campaign KPIs.

Here’s a plan to fix this – and a small confession. It’s way simpler than you might imagine.

First, define your audience. Then define what matters to them. And finally, push those 'matters to them' buttons with your content.

So far, so SEO 101.

The slightly radical part comes next: get your SEO people to take a fresh look at your messaging matrix.

At the same time, get your brand copywriters to look at your topic clusters.

Better still, get them to look at both – together – while you’re still planning your content.

Topic clusters build up a stash of irresistible inter-linked content – usually core topic pages and supporting blog content.

And your messaging matrix is a parallel universe version of the same thing. It tells you which messages to take to each audience at each stage of their buying journey.

If you’ve already got topic clusters and a messaging matrix, you’re set.
