April 25, 2019 by OSYB Staff

QuickSprout shares some concepts about content marketing:

  • it is a process that uses high-quality content to engage and grow your customer base
  • it is an investment
  • it is a component of a larger marketing framework
  • it requires strategic insight
  • it targets users across the entire conversion funnel
  • it should be held accountable to a standard set of success metrics

“Content marketing is the art of creating and distributing relevant and valuable content to attract, acquire, and engage a target audience — with the objective of driving profitable customer action.”

The driving force of content marketing is to create a strong awareness of the brand and cementing a leadership role in your area of expertise. The goal is to build a relationship with existing customers and prospects and sales will become a natural byproduct.

What kind of content should you share:

  • blogs
  • videos
  • content portals and microsites
  • e-books
  • info graphics
  • on-line classes
  • webinars

One good tip is to not only create strong content but to gather leads whenever and wherever you can. If you have a blog, make sure to have a spot to sign-up to be on your email list. Inform your email list when you post a new blog that will be of interest to them. Always seek new ways to gather attention about your brand.
