Grow the Value of Your Digital Content Assets

Are you a content manager or SEO at a company that uses Salesforce, and you’re looking for ways to increase relevant organic search traffic and bring in more leads?

As you know, helpful, search-optimized blog posts that answer your audience’s questions or address their pains are marketing assets that provide years of value for demand & lead generation, brand exposure, sales enablement, and more.

To maximize organic search traffic, it’s essential to

  • Ensure content meets Google Helpful Content Guidelines
  • Re-optimize relevant yet underperforming blog posts
  • Update internal links to and from posts and pages
  • Replace old images
  • Correct grammar and typos
  • Distribute your content across different channels

Why Manage Your Website Content in Salesforce?

Spreadsheets have limitations for efficiently planning new content and re-optimizing existing content.

As content marketers with backgrounds in CRM, we combined our two areas of experience to create a Salesforce package for managing new and existing website content far more efficiently than using spreadsheets.

Managing content assets in Salesforce is similar to managing sales Opportunities.

Content creators and SEOs who author and update digital assets can benefit from many of the Salesforce built-in features and have contributed to Salesforce’s widespread adoption β€” often as an alternative to spreadsheets.

More than just a custom Salesforce object, fields on the layout of a content marketing asset record will be a constant reminder of things you should do to rank your content higher.

Segment Content Assets By Status

Gain focus using Salesforce list views to segment content by statuses such as New, Existing, Under Consideration, In Process, and Updated.

Marketing Asset Management Package Overview

Installing our unmanaged (a.k.a. unlocked) package adds content marketing asset management components to a Salesforce org.

The package contains custom objects, Lightning Record Pages, an app, and reports you need to take your content to the next level.

The components in this package work independently of other Salesforce objects and will not interfere with the object structure in your Salesforce org. Everything was created declaratively, so there’s no code coverage to worry about.

Getting Data Into Salesforce

We developed a template spreadsheet with instructions on one-time imports of WordPress metadata, Google Analytics data, and Google Search Console data.

You can also import keyword and traffic stats from apps like Ahrefs and SEMRush.

Salesforce for SEO FAQs

What is an unmanaged package?

Salesforce has two types of packages for functionality distribution β€” managed and unmanaged.

Managed packages are found on AppExchange, and most require an ongoing subscription fee. Much of the functionality of managed packages is locked down.

Unmanaged packages are like open-source software. Salesforce does not allow charging for these packages.

Are there upgrades?

Upgrades are not available with unmanaged packages. Once you install an unmanaged package on your Salesforce org, you have complete control and can take the functionality in whatever direction you want.

What Salesforce editions does this work with?

The package will install on Professional Edition and higher. Due to the number of fields, it will not install on Starter Edition.

Is this a complete digital asset management (DAM) system?

No, it’s only for managing website pages, posts, and PDFs. It does not manage image assets, for example.

Can’t we develop this functionality on our own?

Sure β€” but this free package will give you a 100+ hour head start.

If the package is free, why don’t you publish a link?

We probably will at some point, but for now, we want to understand better the needs of companies looking for a solution like this, which requires a short conversation.
