Content in 2020: Standing out is more difficult than ever before

The internet is crowded. 

WordPress-powered sites and blogs alone publish up to 77 million blog posts and articles every single month.

And it’s not just the volume that’s increased, either.

As the average internet user gets savvier and competition increases, the quality of blog posts and articles have gone way up as well.

You can no longer conquer SERPs or attract the attention of consumers with a 500-word, keyword-stuffed blog post.

New data on content in 2019/2020

Of course, it’s not enough to just spend a lot of hours on writing a long, low-quality article.

To truly be authoritative and stand out from the crowd, you need to use quotes from established industry experts, relevant, fresh statistics and case studies to back up your points, and branded graphics to help illustrate important concepts.

That’s a lot to handle for inexperienced in-house teams.

Pros and cons of agency vs. in-house content writing and marketing

Content Agency vs. In-House Content Creation Pros & Cons

When first tackling content marketing and production, it might be tempting to try to utilize existing marketing staff.

But a good paid media marketer is rarely the best content writer, and vice versa. 

It’s kind of like hiring a soccer player to join the offensive lineup of your football team. The sports sound similar enough, but below the surface they are so different that any player exchange will end in disaster.

And when a single content marketer’s average salary is $67,778, hiring your own in-house team of experts is off-the-table for most companies.

Instead, you can rent third-party expertise by working with a content writing agency (like Codeless). 

With designers, SEOs, content writers, and editors all in one place, a good content agency pumps out articles and blog posts like a well-oiled machine.

Content Agency ProsContent Agency Cons
Experienced SEOs, writers, editors, designers, in one placeDistanced from the product and final customer
SEO and content distribution expertiseFact-checking can slow down content production process
Capacity to produce high volume of contentMore than one writer/designer can often mean inconsistent voices and visuals

If you do decide to make a go of handling it all in-house, that approach has very clear pros and cons as well.

In-house staff will be more familiar with your product and customer, but without dedicated full-time writers, it can be a challenge to produce the necessary volume of content.

In-House ProsIn-House Cons
In-house writers are familiar with all aspects of the product, no need to fact checkHard to produce high volume of content with other responsibilities
Close to the customer: clear understanding of customer pain points, product benefits, and sales anglesDifficult to implement a consistent content and SEO strategy over time
Easier to communicate and expedite projects when working in the same officeOften have to outsource key elements like design, copy editing, or SEO to unreliable contractors

Codeless – An agency extension of your in-house marketing team

how Codeless is different from other agencies

With decades of combined experience in the content creation industry, we understand the pros and cons of both internal and external SEO content writing.

That’s why we’ve painstakingly designed a unique workflow that eliminates the pains of working with a third-party content writing service:

  1. Senior SEOs collaborate with your team to plan and develop a high-impact content strategy and plan SEO content each month.
  2. Our drafting process is interactive, giving your sales or marketing staff space to offer unique, valuable input and case studies.
  3. Writers with industry experience offer their own unique takes and produce high-quality content with the latest research and data.
  4. Codeless develops unique client style guides to ensure a consistent voice, and keep all content on-brand.
  5. Real-time collaboration and communication through your preferred channels like Slack, Skype, or email with a dedicated account manager.

Our workflow results in high-quality, relevant content that appeals to the picky consumers of the digital age.

What to look for when hiring a content writing agency

When you’re looking to hire a content writing agency, there are multiple factors that you must consider to find the best match for your company.

You should treat finding the right agency just like hiring a new employee; exploring their history, comparing alternatives against each other, and even interviewing each option to get a feel for their expertise.

Quality control, plagiarism, and previous results

Unfortunately, most content writing services and agencies have limited or even zero quality control.

When we analyzed at some of the leading content writing sites, we found that plagiarism and low-quality content was a pervasive problem.

content writing services

Three of the content writing agencies even went as far as copying article structure, or entire sections, from leading SERPs for the provided keyword.

Not to mention, most of the writers also failed to include relevant internal and external links for SEO purposes.

This is also a pervasive issue when hiring independent freelance writers.

That’s why it’s important to choose agencies with an openly available portfolio of content, where you can confirm the quality and originality of each article.

In our case studies, we not only share articles for you to read, but important metrics like backlinks, ranking keywords, and more.

As data-driven marketers, we believe that the data speaks louder than words, and the numbers speak for themselves.

Capacity to produce video and other essential content formats

In 2020, text-based articles are no longer enough to build a relationship with your customers.

Video is the most important format to build trust, generate leads, and consistently drive sales.

Most effective content formats for generating leads

It’s also the perfect format for building a social media presence. 

Codeless offers professional-grade video production and audio narration as an upgrade for all articles and content.

If you don’t have in-house designers, Codeless can also spice up your written content with branded graphics and full-blown infographics.

Search engine optimization (SEO)

67% of marketers single SEO out as the most important tactic for content marketing.

Since most customer journeys start with or include search, SEO is the foundation of an effective content marketing strategy.

At Codeless, not only are experienced SEOs an integral part of our agency, every SEO content writer works with AI-powered tools to optimize their content.

The tools Codeless uses to improve on-page SEO

This process has helped us capture first-page Google results for important keywords for many of our previous clients (see case studies). 

In 2020, “good content” isn’t enough. 

Codeless produces high-quality, long-form, on-page SEO optimized custom content targeting specific keywords, to help you conquer the SERPs and drive more organic traffic.
