Why work with Submarine
Submarine has a wealth of experience and a proven process in generating content in Japan.
Submarine uses quantitative metrics and data analysis to ensure that published articles are comprehensive and informative.
Submarine helps you produce the minimum number of articles necessary, rather than recommending excessive number of pages to write and launch.
SEO Optimized content creation where search volume is not the goal
Submarine does not believe that you should necessarily target keywords with high search volume. We first listen to the client’s business challenges and target audience, then assess the status of competitor sites and the benefits to be gained from the targeted keywords, and select “meaningful” keywords that match the client’s objectives from a marketing perspective.
Analyze existing and pre-release content
Submarine’s content marketing approach encourages planning before design. We use enterprise grade tools to analyze all the content of your articles to determine whether they meet the interests and search intent of your users. We design a unique page structure and amount of information that clearly differentiates your site from your competitors’ sites, while ensuring that the content performance is supported by data.
Consistent writing for content enrichment based on analytics
We use data to understand what people are looking for when they search for information online. Then, we write articles that have all the information people need in a way that is easy to read and understand. We don’t just rely on the writer’s skills, we use data to make sure our articles are accurate and helpful.
Continuous assessment and optimization of the page content
After we publish a web page, we check it again two or three times, every two or three weeks. We use a tool to compare our page to other pages on the same topic. We make sure our page is the best it can be by fixing any problems, changing the way the page is organized, and changing the title. We do this so that our page is more likely to show up at the top of search results.
Kick-off meeting : Organize business issues and target keywords, assess existing content, and set more specific and narrowly-numbered targets. Even if there are multiple markets to be addressed, we carefully prioritize and select targets in order to achieve results with two or three keywords first.
We conduct research on the top sites for the keywords we have determined and design a headline structure based on the information needs of users. Before writing the text, we discuss with the client to align on the page structure. We also discuss with the client the guidelines for the number of words, style, and other requirements.
We write, proofread, and revise the article according to the agreed page outlines. Before publishing the content live, the drafted content is subjected to data analysis to quantitatively determine whether the content meets certain standards. If we determine that additional content should be added, we will review the content by consulting with the editor to ensure that there are no contextual issues. When a certain level of content has been achieved, we will publish the page live.
Brush up after the page is published: After the page is published, we will review the draft multiple times at 2-3 week intervals. User needs and the information that search engines value are constantly evolving. To maintain a high level of content that exceeds that of competing sites, we will add information that is included in the top-ranked websites and information that is likely to be valued in the future.
Main services we offer
Drafting and copy writing based on data analysis
In addition to basic writing, proofreading (visually and with tools to check and correct typos and omissions), and editing, we also use analysis tools to measure the richness of the content of article drafts. We compare the level of content with that of top competitor sites, identify missing information, and create articles that accurately respond to the user’s search intent and apparent and latent information needs.
Table of contents and outlines design based on data analysis
We design the title, headline tagline, and order of the content to accurately incorporate the important content identified by the analysis tool. We will pre-process the writing process to ensure both readability and richness of the drafted content.
Data analysis to enhance and scale your content
Data analysis is conducted multiple times during the writing process. We work steadily and thoroughly to improve the content from the perspectives of whether there are any omissions of content or collocations from the top sites, and whether the manuscript contains original content to avoid excessive similarity.
Post-release data analysis and article brush-up
Even after the content is delivered and the Web page is released, we continue to enhance the content. We will brush up pages by adding information that was not available at the time of article release, or by adding information based on competitor websites and market trends.
What we offer as an option
Rewriting and audit existing pages
For clients who only want to brush up existing pages, we will assess the published Web URLs and content briefs, conduct a content analysis, and present a proposal for adding and revising the content.
Keyword research and markets to be addressed
In many cases, there are promising search terms that should be addressed in addition to the keywords already recognized by the client. We support the selection of promising markets by understanding the keywords that competing sites are using and discovering new keyword groups that are analogous to the keywords.
Audit the number of articles that need to be produced to achieve client’s goal
No matter how much your budget is, it will not be enough if you keep writing articles for every keyword that has a high search volume. Submarine supports the identification of promising search keywords in which you can show your strength and differentiate in the target market, and estimates the number of articles needed to address those keywords.
Design the optimal site structure for the target market
There are two main ways to approach content marketing that performs well for SEO. The first way is to create a single article that is optimized for a specific keyword or phrase. The second way is to release multiple articles that are optimized for different keywords or phrases.
Estimation of market share and growth in the countermeasure market
The goal of content marketing is not simply to obtain traffic to the website. It is to increase relevant traffic by reaching your target audience who are likely to find your content, engage, and convert. Submarine can help you establish the right content marketing strategy that performs well by estimating the current market share and growth potential of based on SEO’s best practices.
