Does Your Brand Have the “Why” Factor?

We recently stumbled upon the eBook, Thoughts on Crafting a Brand Identity by Brandwatch and it inspired us to discuss the question, “Does your business have the “why” element in your brand and what is it?”

Every company out there has a product or a service they offer, some companies have an idea of what differentiates them, but few companies truly know why they do what they do!

Simon Sinek, a best-selling author, famously known for his Ted Talk: Start With Why, explores the idea of how companies that focus on their core belief are more successful in their branding and marketing strategies.


How to Find the Right Influencers for Content Marketing Using BuzzSumo

At Delightful, we believe content marketing and influencer marketing can’t live without each other.

Content can be seen as the currency of most influencer marketing activities and, on the other hand, influencers help amplify content and bring brands the credibility to reach and engage with relevant audience.

However, it’s not easy to find the right influencers to help you create killer content and amplify it. Most influencer marketing tools that can help marketers find influencers evaluate how influential they are based on their social media performance, while the influencers content marketers value the most, are those who write and share not just on social media, but also on their blog and 3rd party publications.


Buzzsumo is the perfect tool to solve this problem for content marketers. By providing powerful content insight, the tool can help marketers find the right influencers to boost their content creation and amplification numbers.

Interview with Duane Forrester: Uncovering the Goldmine of Link Data for Influencer Marketing 

We are big-time supporters of Majestic here at Delightful, and while the British search engine tells you who is linking to whom across the web, we want you to uncover everything it has to offer beyond just being a tool for SEO (search engine optimization).

I chatted to Duane Forrester, VP of Organic Search Operations at Bruce Clay, at a conference recently about how content marketers and digital PR people could use link data to tell better stories about their campaigns and how to get creative when planning outreach to influencers.


Duane says, “the reality is links are a source of direct traffic,” and gives you the opportunity to uncover potential partners and evaluate the success of your content. You’re putting in the work, but still, how well do you know your customers? Who are your key influencers? What is the net long-term effect of the content and campaigns you are producing?
