Content Marketing can be a powerful tool in any business’s arsenal, creating more effective lead generation and enhancing Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) efforts. Strategic Content Marketing approaches also help future-proof firms, helping the firm to demonstrate its agility in responding to behavioural shifts and emerging trends.
What is Content Marketing?
Content Marketing is the discipline of creating quality branded content that is valuable, relevant and consistent to attract and acquire a clearly defined audience – with the objective of driving profitable customer action.
In short, instead of pitching your products or services as you would using traditional marketing methods, Content Marketing delivers information that makes your service buyer more intelligent, conveys brand authority and builds trust in your service offering.
Why Employ it?
With the proliferation of lower-quality content facilitated by self-publishing platforms, high-quality, professionally produced, authoritative and trustworthy content can distinguish an enterprising firm from its peers. As a creative field, Content Marketing provides scope for experimentation yet compliments existing communication efforts across Marketing, Public Relations (PR), Business Development and more.
Content Marketing may sound like a new buzzword, but the discipline draws on traditional journalistic approaches to storytelling and audience outreach, accesses the internal knowledge network inherent in good businesses, and optimises firms’ own distribution channels which increased exponentially with the rise of digital communications.
This has led to the rise of Content Marketing as an integral part of the Marketing mix (though its potential is much larger than this), with 78% of Chief Marketing Officers reporting that “content is the future of marketing”. According to a survey by The Economist, 93% of companies surveyed plan to maintain or increase their investment in content creation in the upcoming year.
