What is content marketing?
To understand content marketing, it’s important to first understand what it isn’t. Content marketing is not an attempt to create an expensive magazine or book, or to produce a website. It’s an effort to produce a quality, informative, and entertaining piece of content on your website or blog on a consistent basis. I often call content marketing, “a series of smaller blog posts, viral YouTube videos, Facebook posts, and Twitter updates that tell your company story in an engaging and compelling way.” There are many effective ways to create content, and there are many companies and brands that are able to generate effective content.

Content Marketing Strategies
How do you produce great content and rank in Google in such a competitive marketplace?
Firstly, Research, Plan, And Analyze.
One of the best ways to create effective content is by researching your competition, by utilizing Google Analytics, and by monitoring keyword usage. Planning is key, creating content strategies in this step will help you to map out what works for your business, and what is not right for you.
Secondly, it’s also imperative to take your audience analysis and priorities into account. For example, if you’re aiming to rank in Google for an obscure keyword you need to make sure that your content strategy is engaging to both new and existing customers.
The Importance of Blog Posts

How to create a blog post outline
In this post, we’re going to explore effective content marketing strategies and the writing that goes into each of them. Use a narrative approach We’ll start with the “narrative approach” – best used to create content that helps someone read your content without even realizing they are doing so.
Tips: Before you start writing, sketch out a narrative that includes these points: Who the reader is. What they are looking to accomplish What he/she is already familiar with. When he/she encounters the “cues” that reveal a point, you need to communicate. What makes the “plot” compelling Here’s an example, adapted from Chime’s blog: Meet my son, Luke. Luke loves Lego. Luke also loves cheeseburgers.
