Content marketing is a valuable outreach tool in your quest to establish your business as the ‘go to resource’ for your specific services or products. It involves creating and sharing newsworthy content to engage current and potential target markets. Content marketing supports the theory that delivering high-quality, relevant, valuable, insightful information to prospects and clients/customers drives profitable consumer action.
Examples of content marketing include:
- print or on-line newsletters
- trade journal articles
- newspaper or regional magazine articles
- white papers
- email news updates
Use content marketing to demonstrate that your business is on the leading edge of the trends and latest developments and corresponding statistics in your field, as well as proven methods and technologies. Time is valuable to your prospects and clients/customers. Show your respect for the value of their time by ensuring that your content is newsworthy, efficient and well written, and valuable to your readership. Be sure to build your corporate voice and personality into your content marketing. Don’t promote your services and products—secure your company’s position as a leading expert in the field through effective content marketing and the purchasing of your services and products will follow.
Content marketing enables you to establish your business as a thought leader and industry expert and supports your marketing, advertising, and public relations efforts. Put content marketing to work for your business today!
