Reasons Your Company Needs Content Marketing
by Mark Thomas
Content marketing is a marketing plan that moves around the creation, publication, and delivery of content to a target audience in order to bring new traffic (and therefore new customers) to your business.
How do you make sure you’re marketing your business in the most operational way? One important way is to keep your marketing strategy current, if not ahead of the curve. Don’t be the last one not advertising on Facebook. Keep your business on the cutting edge in order to remain relevant and, more prominently, efficient and active. In today’s world, that means content marketing, and that’s exactly why we’re giving you this guide on why content marketing is important and where you should be concentrating your efforts.
Content marketing is a marketing strategy that revolves around the creation, publication, and distribution of content to a target audience in order to bring new traffic (and therefore new clients) to your business.
This is always done online across by the use of social media, blogs and videos, and eBooks and other downloadable or cooperative tools that share your brand and skills with your ideal buyer.
Here are 5 Perfect Reasons to Start Creating Expert Content for Your Company Today
1. Build Trust with Your Visitors
As we all know that, any personal trainer uses his proficiency to gain the trust of his online readers. The more content you create and share with your target spectators, the clearer it develops that you are an authority in your field. People trust experts and hire them to help solve problems.
2. Build Brand Awareness
Let’s be truthful, most people don’t know about your business and it’s time to alter that. If done correctly, you can use content marketing to significantly increase traffic to your site so you can get reliable, quality traffic and inbound links to your site, and expose them to a brand they never knew existed.
3. Great for Organic Search (SEO)
When you open your browser and type a keyword or phrase into Google, the search engine works to bring you the most pertinent information regarding your search query. When you are creating expert content for the sake of sharing valuable and valued information to your ideal target buyers rather than spammy sales copy, Google knows that your content is useful and provides the answer to people examining, therefore it will rank higher in the search results.
4. Generates Leads for Your Business
This is the large one, so large that it should be number 1. We like to say “you can’t beat trust and knowledge” and producing leads for your business is the reason any of us do any marketing at all. We need new leads to come to us and finally buy what we are selling. Content marketing allows strangers to find you through your valuable and useful content. Most of the time this is before they are even ready to make a decision to buy.
5. Attract Ideal Buyers
All that talk about leads is abundant, but an abundance of unreserved leads will get you nowhere. You need to draw ideal buyers or you’ll be wasting your sales team’s time.
The beauty of content marketing is that while you’ll be allocating proof of your expertise to the world, only people who are really involved in what you have to say are the ones viewing it.
The list of reasons to do content marketing for your business goes on and on. To be frank, our real number 1 reason should have read something like “because it works, and in this day and age it is one of the best ways to build awareness of your business and drive inbound leads.”
There will always be tactics that produce quick, short-lived spikes in traffic and leads. There will also always be those methods that may have no business impact at all. There has been a great deal of time and money invested in growing your business to get it to where it is today, so invest in proper content marketing now and it will reward you for years to come.
