Dear world-class entrepreneur in the making,
Let's face it, traditional marketing as we know it is becoming a thing of the past. Things are now moving at the speed of light, people have access to enormous amounts of information and your potential customers are turning to social media to help make purchasing decisions... and they want the best, well, yesterday.
Long gone are the days when customers swallowed everything served to them without a second thought. Today, they ask for peer advice, seek reviews online, get to the core of each brand and what it stands for, and make purchases based on the quality not only of the product or service they are interested in but also their journey before the purchase.
You may ask:
“How can I enhance my customers' experience so I can attract and retain loyal clients and eventually boost my revenue and appeal in my highly competitive market?”
Without great content, marketing, regardless of the type of tactics used, is just doomed to fail. In a nutshell, content marketing will allow you to work smarter, not harder or around the clock.
Content is the blood the internet. Without content, there is no job for google, no emails to answers and social media wouldn't exist as we know it.
What is GREAT content?
It is content that your clearly defined audience will be dying to read; it is content that's worth sharing; it is content that steals impressions and leaves people hungry for more. So, it is crucial to be able to use the power of content to your advantage to better inform and inspire.
It is all about becoming the go-to person; the trusted leader in your field. So, it really doesn't matter if you are a consultant, dentist, marketer, personal trainer or lawyer. If you want to increase your revenue or the impact you have on others, then content marketing should definitely be part of your strategic marketing approach.
How is Content Marketing Key to Every Industry Leader
Suppose you are a life coach or consultant and want to make a difference by helping people overcome obstacles in their personal life. Sharing knowledge and advice, especially if you have been in their shoes and have managed to overcome the same obstacles yourself in the past, can be incredibly impactful through storytelling. That way, you can climb up the ladder and present to larger audiences, increasing your visibility, positioning, and status, and consequently, your prices! Crafting your story, though, requires specific skills so that you have clients lining up to work with you and better their lives.
Even if you only need to help others as a way of giving back and making a difference, content marketing is your ticket to success, because words will speak to people's hearts and either make or break what you are trying to achieve, depending on how you use them.
That aside, customers are now more demanding than ever. They won't settle with average, and they certainly appreciate brands with a human face. To accomplish that, you need to be able to manipulate words so that they can reflect who you are and what you have genuinely come forward to offer. Just remember that through sharing consistent, valuable, and relevant content, you are building relationships. If you are a business owner, this is your chance to get business come to YOU, rather than living with the agony and going customer hunting each and every day, spending valuable time, money, and energy.
Do this apply to you?
Then, implementing a marketing strategy that involves content marketing should be on your list.
At the end of the day, your information-sharing business will not change only the lives of others; it will change yours as well. Instead of just trading your precious time for money, you will eventually be living the fulfilling life you have always wanted. And, that's something worth fighting for.
