Historically, the publication of quality content has been an effective (arguably, the most effective) marketing strategy. Consider Benjamin Franklin’s famous publication, Poor Richard’s Almanack, published first in 1732 and annually serialized until 1758. It sold exceptionally well and garnered economic growth for Franklin, who used the pamphlet to promote his printing business.
The concept of content marketing is a simple one, and one that Franklin capitalized on very effectively: create content that your audience finds valuable, and they will grow to trust your brand and rely on your company as a solutions provider.
The execution can be a challenge for today’s businesses; the level-of-effort and complexities of content marketing are sometimes underestimated.
Despite data demonstrating its effectiveness, results show that fewer than 50% of businesses have a content marketing strategy in place, potentially leaving a significant amount of money on the table from lost traffic and leads. With a solid plan, supported by a marketing automation system, businesses today are positioned to capture more opportunities than ever by creating and promoting quality, solutions-based content.
