What is content marketing? The term is near-ubiquitous nowadays but it still bears examination in order to ensure that brands are focusing their efforts in the right way for maximum effectiveness and efficiency. Content marketing means adopting a strategic marketing programme that is centred around producing and disseminating engaging, relevant, valuable content to attract and retain your target audiences with the goal of driving profitable customer action. Delivering content marketing services to your customer base should support increased sales, driving better referrals, improving customer loyalty and turning your content marketing programme into a profit centre.
What sets content marketing apart from other forms of marketing is the focus on being relevant and valuable. It is the polar opposite of ‘spamming’ customers with irrelevant, sales-focused marketing material, instead focusing on providing customers with educative, insightful, useful content which in turn powers business decision-making and revenue growth.
