Content Marketing is “the marketing and business process for creating and distributing relevant and valuable content to attract, acquire and engage a clearly defined and understood target audience – with the objective of driving profitable customer action,” according to the Content Marketing Institute
To create true Content Marketing requires a shift in how you position your products and services to develop an education-first approach to marketing. This means you must have a strong understanding of who your target customer truly is, what are the pain points they have that you can solve, and what places they frequent, both online and in person. Then, by making your customer the hero of your company story, you can create content that attracts, acquires and engages.
According to the 2016 B2B Content Marketing Report by CMI and MarketingProfs, only 32% of respondents have a documented content strategy. Yet 53% of the most effective marketers have a documented content strategy and 40% of the least effective marketers have no strategy at all.
The Pedowitz Group (TPG) can help your company be effective marketers by helping you develop a true Content Marketing operations approach. This requires the development of a Content Marketing strategy that, not only, aligns with your company’s voice and values, but connects to the bottom line.
