Content is more readily available now than it has ever been over the course of history. Buyers have come to expect content be easily accessible at the click of a button and the swipe of a finger. As information is rapidly consumed, businesses are proactively keeping up with demands by providing content-rich websites and supporting materials such as white papers, case studies, articles, blog posts, videos, infographics, presentations and more to accommodate this need.
Content Marketing is a marketing technique that involves developing valuable and relevant content with the intention of educating and informing customers. The objective is not to sell, but to drive customer action by encouraging them to clarify their needs, solve problems and make more informed purchasing decisions.
"When you have useful and relevant
content, you gain credibility."
When you have useful and relevant content your prospects actually want, you gain credibility points and assume the role of expert during the buying cycle. You provide them with sound advice, possibly a new perspective on their market or solution, challenge them and provide alternative solutions. Becoming both the expert and advisor helps you build, maintain and strengthen your relationship with your customers. This translates to customer loyalty and continued business, thereby supporting your sales and marketing goals.
Content Marketing is Key to Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Content Marketing also supports search engine optimization (SEO) efforts as it ensures even more information is on your website to be reviewed by search engines, especially if the content provided was motivated by specific customer needs.
