What To Do When Your Content Marketing Consistently Flops

It’s the painful truth. Your content marketing is more likely to fail than it is to succeed.

As disappointing as that may be, developing content marketing is still a necessary part of your business’s success. But why is no one reading your content even when you pour your heart and soul into creating it?

When it comes to content marketing, an “If you build it, they will come” mentality doesn’t apply. Just because you put out something that you think is great doesn’t mean that it’s going to get you tons of page views and sales.

Because content marketing is more of an art than a science, there’s no precise formula for success. But there’s no need to get discouraged. These tips can help you get back on your feet after your content marketing flops:

- It’s about quality AND quantity. It’s impossible to establish yourself or your brand as a thought leader if you only have one great thought. The more awesome content you put out there, the more likely you are to develop a larger readership.

- Get above the noise with your message. If a tree falls in the forest when no one is around, does it still make a sound? Well if that tree is content marketing, it really doesn’t matter if no one is going to hear it anyway. The Content Marketing Forest is filled with countless trees all falling down at the same time. Figure out a way to get above that noise and make a different and bigger impact with your tree’s tumble.

- Remember that it’s not all about you. A hard sell has no place in content marketing. Stop talking about what your company does and start offering content that is relevant and useful to your potential customers’ lives.

- Develop a strategy that goes beyond the content. Again, this isn’t Field of Dreams. Putting content up on your blog just isn’t enough. You need to develop a solid content distribution plan that gets your stuff to the right audience.

- Learn from your mistakes. It’s easy to get caught up in content creation without ever stepping back to examine your success (or lack thereof). Pay attention to analytics and note what does and doesn’t work for your audience so you can adjust your strategy accordingly.

- Emulate content marketing geniuses. What content do you find yourself reading? Who dominates content marketing in your industry? Invest time in observing fantastic content and figuring out how to adapt successful tactics for yourself. But don’t mistake imitation for emulation. You won’t succeed if you don’t carve out a unique niche for your business.

- Don’t give up. Content marketing is tricky. You’re going to strike out frequently, but that’s okay. The most important thing is to keep producing content and use smart strategies to improve it as you go.

Welcome to Lithtex Printing!

The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.

Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.

Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.

Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.

In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.

In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.

Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
