…But with 55% of marketers saying that blog content creation is their top inbound marketing priority this year, now’s the time to invest in your content, engage with your customers and get ahead of the game. By creating a solid content market strategy, you can craft and share engaging and helpful content that your prospects will want to read. From blogging to downloads and infographics to whitepapers, by getting your brand out there, you can start to engage with your prospects and make sure your business is found, shared, trusted and followed.
Why content marketing?
Let’s take things back a step. Content marketing pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin: it’s about creating and sharing kick-ass content that your potential customers will love. You need to grab the attention of your prospects whilst they’re still in the research phase, showing them how you can solve their problems and why they should choose you over the competition – and the best way of doing that is by creating content that appeals to your audience.
But before you start writing, you need a content marketing strategy to make sure you are creating effective and engaging content that will get you the results you need. First things first, you’ll need to identify your buyer personas so you can craft clever content that answers their questions and solves their problems. Then you’ll need to map out what content you will write, when you will schedule it and where you will share it.
