Choose Communications Networks That Lasts

Content marketing through a stand alone website amongst competition can be hard work. You may write the very best articles but if no one reads them it is pointless and discouraging. The days of tiered multi-site (spam) content to build backlinks and ranking are numbered as the search engine providers refine search algorithms to negate attempts to game their systems for higher rankings.

You may have read many of the thousands of articles and promises from coaches and providers that their systems of content marketing are superior for a variety of reasons. You will eventually realize that the essence of the message from the most experienced and knowledgeable providers is that if you wish to rank well in organic search must produce good content, that people want to use. Good content can be written, downloadable, in video or any other media, just as long as it is in the most suitable media for the type of information being conveyed at that time.

Your content marketing strategy must reach the correct audience at the right time, with words that person will at that moment best understand and with words that create engagement. To do this a single piece of content may need to be reshaped for different media, such as Twitter, Facebook, Linked in, Website, Newsletter or if published as a guest post on an external site. In each case all or part of your content may be reshaped for that audience.

It therefore follows that over time a firm must have access to multiple audiences if it intends to reach all its customers, stakeholders, influencers and communities. If in reaching these audiences the message is not received because your site is unknown, the effort is again wasted. Worse still after publishing your content, the article may never appear search engine results because your Google does not consider your site to be a trusted authority on the subject.

It is for this reason that Domain Authority Practices are used in conjunction with the production of good content. The quick explanation of this practice is to create additional sites that produce supportive content in and around the topics of your primary websites. As these sites utilizing Long Tail keyword optimization attract visitors and using links to the primary site refer traffic, search engines make note of this and the domain authority and trust flow ranking to the site begin to rise, which in turn improve results in the SERPS.

If you’re serious about SEO and considering engaging a number of contractors to perform the various SEO tasks, you will soon realize that by using these firms you loose control of the actual data and digital assets. Further once you start with one firm, if you wish to use another provider it’s very hard to switch when you don’t have ownership of your intellectual properly.

Here is a really good place to start by use of your own Cloud Communications Network you can engage contractors who have specific skills and yet maintain ownership over your IP and digital assets. You own the equipment, and the passwords, the accounts and manage the logins and facilities accessible.

This service is unique in that (depending on your project requirements) could create many websites, blogs, social accounts, Web 2.0s all performing a specific task in driving traffic. Unfortunately this is the way the world is headed; good content marketing practices are the currency by switch companies will be valued in the years ahead.  It’s a matter of keep up or get left behind.

If you have a small network of for example 5 sites, with 5 sites connected to these in a two tier layered structure, that’s 25 sites, that might need 10 unique IP addresses, perhaps over 20 user ID’s and passwords (that need to be unique enough to look natural), and you will soon discover you need different physical PC’s and Logins on local PC’s just to manage this.

A much better, cheaper and more robust approach is to use a Smart NAS (Network Access Storage) device.

The NAS devices from smikbox come preinstalled with Virtualization Station, a capability to host multiple Websites, Forums, Blogs, Cloud Management tools that are essential for your APBN. Smikbox also provide devices with multiple VPN / Proxy shielded virtual PC Farms so a user can be logged into multiple sites and locations with total IP address anonymity (very important). Without a smikbox NAS you would need to purchase between five and ten separate PC’s to maintain your network and freelancers/contractors would be logging into these PC’s with products such as Team Viewer. Instead you can employ contractors/freelancers from anywhere in the world and manage backup and redundancy effectively.
