What is Content Marketing?

Content marketing is an indirect approach to marketing that uses informational, educational and entertaining material to generate leads and build an audience for a company or a brand.

Content is the single most important component for:

  • generating a sales lead – to generate leads from direct response and website traffic, you need offers which is a form of content
  • leveraging social media – social media audiences are built through the use of content that people want to read, see or hear
  • gaining higher SEO rankings – search engine rankings are determined largely by good content on your web pages and blog


Types of Content

Content marketing is purposely non-promotional.  By providing informational and educational information – as opposed to sales promotion – you can build your reputation as an expert in your field.  Here are just of the types of content you can create:

  • Articles
  • Blog posts
  • Whitepapers
  • E-books
  • How-to guides
  • Industry research
  • Client stories
  • Case studies
  • Customer interviews
  • Videos
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Podcasts
  • Charts
  • Checlists
  • Q&As

How Content and Offers are different

All offers are content, but not all content are used as offers.

Offers are typically more substantive content (whitepapers, reports, research) that are only available upon request.  Content can also include short items like articles and blog posts.

Offers are always “gated” content meaning you’ll need to provide contact information in order to acquire the offer.

Offers are usually created just once but used repeatedly.  Content development, on the other hand, is a continuing exercise that has a cumlative affect on your target audience.
