What is content marketing?

According to Wikipedia, content marketing is “an umbrella term encompassing all  marketing formats that involve the creation and sharing of content… continue

…but in a nutshell, content is…

  • articles
  • blog posts
  • images
  • infographics
  • case studies
  • video
  • reports/guides

Why content marketing?

  • great for SEO (in fact the only way to do it now)
  • establish your expertise/credibility
  • interact with your clients and prospects
  • humanise/personalise your business (people do business with people)
  • educate your prospects so they are better qualified when they contact you
  • get word-of-mouth referrals (eg ‘have you read this…’)
  • get your product/service/brand out there without the sales pitch
  • engage and inform (maybe even entertain), don’t just sell

Why email marketing?

  • all of the above
  • even if people do not read or open your email (it happens!) they see your name and brand regularly
  • low cost marketing tactic compared with eg direct mail, advertising, telemarketing
  • effective marketing tactic (see above)

marketing…”
