Throughout all of the changes in online marketing over the past few decades, one constant has remained and that is the value of content marketing. Perhaps you have heard that “content is king” and it’s still true. People often search the web seeking answers and search engines return those search queries with content. However, that content can take many forms including:
- Web Pages
- Local Search Listings
- Blog Posts
- Press Releases
- White Papers
- Case Studies
- Event Listings
- PowerPoint / Keynote Decks
- Much More!
I think it’s safe to say that content formats have changed and expanded however, the end result is a business that produces quality content will typically connect with more prospects than the ones who don’t. And once you have connected with those prospects, there are other forms of content marketing strategies such as autoresponders and email marketing content to build relationships with your prospects.
It’s important to note that you don’t have to create every form of content to be successful online. You need to know your audience and the type of content they are accustomed to so you can create what they need.
Like any other aspect of your business, it is important to be strategic and content is no different. We recommend using a content calendar so it’s never an afterthought or something that springs up as a surprise.
Lastly, know that marketing your content is far more important than creating it. Meaning that the best solutions won’t do any good unless they reach your prospects. That’s another area where we have expertise.
For many companies, it is s struggle to plan, create, and market content on a consistent basis. Many of those companies turn to a content marketing agency, such as ours to help them plan, develop, and market that content.
