Firstly, let’s define what content is. Content, in the context of marketing, is truly relevant and useful information a business provides to a potential audience to help them solve personal issues, challenges or answer questions they may have. Content can be distributed via things like articles and blogs, videos, e-books and webinars.
Using content to find, engage, educate and entertain your clients is one of the most effective ways in today’s marketing universe to generate sales. In a world where we’re bombarded with content, having a competitive edge is critical. As mentioned above, the best kind of content will solve an audience’s problem or meet a need, or it will be genuinely entertaining.
Companies who use content well will gain the trust of their followers and customers which in turn result in purchases and repeat sales. Distributing useful content allows a business to become a credible and authoritative resource on topics that matter, and that business is more likely to get discovered by the right audience and earn their loyalty and trust.
What is Content Marketing?
Content marketing involves developing and distributing shareable information. It should be very strategic in nature and be targeted towards a specific audience your company is trying to reach. The content should not specifically promote a brand, but rather provide helpful information or be entertaining which users are willing to share, and subtly stimulates interest for your product or service.
