What Is Content Marketing?

 Quite simply, content is any creative output produced by your business.  This could be in the form of social media posts, blog posts, or even videos educating your audience about a topic related to your brand or niche.  In addition, the creative output you draw from can be visual, such as graphics, auditory, like podcasts, or motion like Youtube videos.


How To Use Content Marketing Effectively

 The most effective way to utilize content marketing is to create some type of value with it, rather than to use it as a sales pitch.  For instance, are you working to inform your audience by sharing your knowledge of the specific industry?  Are you simply being entertaining and funny?  While these are two different tactics, both do well in making the audience feel connected to your brand.
