What is Content Marketing?
Billboards, newspaper ads and television commercials have long been the most practical means of communicating your brand’s message to your target audience. While these forms of marketing still have their place in our world, they have had to step aside for the new king of marketing: content marketing.
Content marketing has been around in some form for hundreds of years but, thanks to the internet, it has taken off as a major marketing strategy. By definition, content marketing is the method of creating and publishing useful and relevant content that addresses your target audience’s needs. Through this use of content, you will be able to increase your leads and boost your conversion rates.
At Burg & Co., we see content marketing as one of the strongest and most effective means of remaining relevant and staying connected with your target audience. Content marketing works as a comprehensive marketing strategy that not only aims to generate new customers but to encourage existing customers to maintain a relationship with your brand and share it with others.
Content marketing achieves these goals by reaching your audience through:
- Blog posts
- White papers
- Infographics and more
How does content marketing work?
You may be thinking, sure, the goals of content marketing sound great, but how does it work? The important question to keep in mind regarding content marketing is “what does your audience want?” Content marketing isn’t about generating a bunch of material about your brand and services (though, that is a part of it) but is about identifying a need and offering a solution and educating your audience.
Essentially, the three steps to producing quality content that is useful to your audience include:
- Identify a problem or need common among your target audience
- Publish and share content that speaks to this issue and offers advice and solutions
- Introduce your product or services (as relevant) as a viable option for addressing your audiences’ need
