Today we have better tools to measure the effective of content, to see what works with our audience/customers and what doesn’t. Here’s an excerpt: (you might want to read this more than once, lots of good information here). Excerpt: As marketers, we are becoming increasingly data-focused.
What is “Content Analytic s”? It is the process of structuring previously unstructured content, by extracting new information. If you like, it is simply ‘measuring content’. This goes beyond transaction and conversion data, to include details of interactions with brand-authored content, as well as user-generated content and sharing of content on social networks.
But the bottom line is that each adds additional descriptors about a piece of content. The extracted information can include topics, people, places, companies and concepts in the content, sentiment towards aspects of the content, and the language of that content.
We are a far way off from perfect natural language processing, which understands content just like a human. But by starting to build metadata around content it becomes more understandable by search engines, content delivery, and analytics systems.
An understanding of content, means it can be measured, and the data-focused marketers amongst us would agree that measurement is the start of creating sustainable improvement.
