Content marketing is a powerful and effective way to reach your customers, and if done well, doubles as a retention tool. Use this simple, four-step exercise from digital marketing expert to get started:
1. What’s your end goal? For content marketing, this means a library of content that will attract new customers by reflecting your business’ authority and expertise.
2. What content do you already have at your disposal? Take stock of what you already have. Chances are, you’ve got a wealth of owned content to work with. Social posts to LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram all count. Here are some places to start looking: Emails, blogs, videos, audio recordings, photographs, interviews, tech support logs and conversations, knowledge bases, product instructions, community forums. Now, develop categories of content, and organize your content within them to see what you really have.
3. What new content could you create? Now that you know what you already have, think about what’s missing. Some businesses naturally lend themselves to certain kinds of content. What types of content naturally suit your product or service? Where could you create content that would add value for your customer?
4. Where would you distribute the content? A distribution plan for your content is key to your success. Where would people be looking for content you produce?
