100 simple, powerful ideas to promote your SAAS startup's content marketing in 2019🔥 🚀 What's yours?

Lots of us are using content marketing to drive inbound leads but often our content falls on death ears. Today I created a list of 100 ideas for promoting your content marketing. I've posted a bunch of them below, and you can read the full list over on my LinkedIn post here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/100-simple-powerful-ideas-promote-your-saas-startups-content-oliver/?published=t

The ideas

Leverage your existing platforms

  • Schedule posts promoting the content across your social channels: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram.
  • Add the link to your social profile bios.
  • Pin these posts to the top of your social profiles.
  • Re-work and re-post the best-performing promotional posts regularly.
  • Try new angles promoting the same content. Try excerpts, stats, or testimonials.
  • Use video assets [screen records or animations] to increase click through rates
  • Promote the content in your newsletter.
  • Then add it to your next three newsletters too.
  • Send it to people who previously attended your webinar or events.
  • Promote the content to your Intercom users.
  • Add it to your website footer or menu.
  • Add a popup overlay or slide-in with a CTA to download or view it, across your website.
  • Add text links from your best performing content directly to the new content.
  • Pin the content to your top of your blog.
  • Add a CTA across your blog into the content.

Leverage your team and network

  • Keep going.
    *Reach out to your team on Slack and encourage them to post it on their own social channels, and engage with the company posts - share, like or comment.
  • Have sales and marketing reach out to leads and customers with a link to the content.
  • Have your whole team add a link to the content in their email signature.

Share in relevant communities

*Don't stop now. Create a Notion CRM detailing all of the communities your buyer persona may visit.

  • Consider Subreddits, Facebook Groups, LinkedIn Groups, Slack channels, Hacker News and Quora.
  • And specific communities that are relevant to your persona. Try Indie Hackers, Product Hunt or google '#niche communities' to get started.
  • Share your content with those groups - but don't be a dick.
  • Reply to 10 relevant posts with advice and link to your content.
  • Leave a comment on 5 relevant Medium posts and gracefully link to your content.
    *Reach out to professional or members' organisations who may share the content.
