Content marketing aims to answer questions that your audience might have. This isn’t as simple as just a Google search, you will really have to look into what your audience is looking for, and answer those questions with blog posts or podcasts or whichever media you decide to use. The reason it is important is it creates brand awareness, it also builds trust and gives people information about your business that they might have before they make their next move.
- Content marketing is more about building your brand image than getting sales or traffic right away.
- Content marketing has to be useful information that benefits your customers. You have to build trust without talking through their ears.
- There are lots of outlet for posting content online including Youtube, E-books, Guest posts, informative LinkedIn posts, or even answering questions on Quora.
