The challenges

In the UK, the digital marketing agency landscape is fiercely competitive. Although we had a foundational blogging and social media strategy, our goal was to amplify our organic reach, enhancing visibility and driving more traffic to our website.

Certainly, expanding our blog content and pursuing guest posting opportunities were potential routes. However, these options seemed challenging, with only one content writer and an SEO specialist on board at the time. We aimed to optimise our time and resources for more effective blog content creation.

Skills applied

The TLBM approach

01
Research for a data-backed content strategy

After speaking to our various accounting clients, it became apparent that lead generation through marketing posed a significant challenge for them. This therefore became an obvious area for us to focus on and help our client base.

This insight prompted us to write a blog post detailing how accountants could generate leads with the help of TLBM.

After researching on Google and SEMrush’s Topic Research tool, we found several keywords like “accountancy leads,” “SEO myths,” and “digital marketing trends” of interest.

We ultimately decided to explore one keyword, “accountancy leads.”

02

Keyword finalisation for target audience alignment

We put the term “accountancy leads” into SEMrush’s Keyword Magic tool and got a whole list of useful info right away.

From this, we learned that this keyword gets searched about 70 times a month, has medium competition, and costs £0.49 per click in the UK.

This gave us a sense that with some effort, we could potentially rank well for it on Google and get some good inbound traffic our way.

03

Blog content structure development

Once we settled on our primary keyword, we turned to the SEO Content Template by SEMrush to dive deeper. This tool shed light on what our competitors were publishing around that same keyword.

It also provided key details, such as semantically related keywords, backlinks, and the visibility score of competitor blogs. It even suggested the ideal length for our blog post based on that keyword.

With this information in hand, we created a detailed blog outline.

04

Blog content production with visual elements

After all our in-depth research, writing the blog post turned out to be a breeze. With key details like the right keywords, relevant links, and the ideal content length all laid out, we essentially had all major SEO boxes ticked, simplifying the writing process.

On top of that, we made sure to incorporate authentic images and screenshots in our post.

Once the blog post was reviewed and passed plagiarism and Grammarly checks, we confidently hit the “publish” button.

We were absolutely delighted when we ran our next SEO analysis.
