As Social Signals continue to influence the SERPs, your ability to create amazing content and promote it on social media is becoming the most important skill an internet marketer can have. In 2014, social signals will eclipse link building as a key ranking factor.
Content Marketing System Defined
Content Marketing means creating and sharing valuable information to attract and convert prospects into customers, and customers into buyers. The type of content you share should be closely related to what you sell; in other words, you’re educating people so that they know, like, and trust you enough to do business with you.

Content Marketing System Strategy
I searched the web to find the best articles, videos and strategies on how one should go about designing and deploying a content marketing system. In doing so, I came across this social media guide produced by the folks from Simply Business, based out of the UK. Parts of this guide are a little dated, but the core process is one of these best models I found for defining a content marketing strategy.

As I stated in the above video, setting up your Google Authorship so that the content you create, curate, and syndicate has your G+ Credentials linked to this content so the Google algorithm knows you are the author of this content and your Author Rank will be credited accordingly. I’m using a Bitly Bundle to inventory these 10 articles so you will have a single source to review later if need be.
I created and moderate a Google+ Community for those looking to discuss the ins and outs of building a content marketing system using Social SEO best practices. I invite you to check out my Social SEO Community on Google+ and connect with 400 other members in the Community.
If you would like me to send you the Social Media Master file I mentioned in the video, complete this Google Docs Form and I’ll see you get it straight away.
If you would like to schedule a free 30 minute Google Hangout to discuss how my custom content marketing system can work for you, Click Here or the Hangout image below. Make sure you leave me your website URL so I can recon your social footprint ahead of time.
