What You Need to Know About Content Marketing

Posted on January 31, 2017

More Than Words on a Website

So what do you think of when you hear the term content marketing? Does your mind conjure up a blog space with a few entries here and there, or perhaps some specially crafted emails aimed at getting some new customers? The truth is content marketing consists of much more than a few blogs posts or marketing emails sent out to would-be customers. Content marketing takes a concerted effort, over time, and you have to be prepared to be stick it out.

It Takes Effort

The first thing you need to know is that content marketing requires serious effort. That means you have to consistently produce effective and relevant content that is engaging, interesting, timely and informative. You can’t just do this once or twice a month; it takes a consistent approach without giving up after a few posts. To that same end, an effective content marketing strategy also takes time, and a lot of it. You can’t just whip something together and throw it on your site. You have to brainstorm and strategize your topics, your intentions and then do the research to come up with content that meets your intended goals and purposes.

It’s a Long Process

Speaking of time, effective content marketing also takes a long time to be successful. In other words, it doesn’t happen over night. Two things to keep in mind here. One, you can’t create a whole bunch of content at once and expect that it’s effectiveness will last forever. Likewise, you can’t just post a few new pieces of content occasionally over a long period of time and expect to get results. Remember, there is no end in site when it comes to content marketing. It’s an ongoing process.

It’s Not Cheap

Of course, everyone would like content to be cheap, and indeed it can be. However, the old adage is typically true: you get what you pay for. If you hire someone to create content at a cut-rate then you will likely get cut-rate content in return. You have to be prepared to hire talented writers and pay for the quality content you desire.

That’s Just the Beginning

Lastly, you also need to realize that creating the content is just the first step. After you have it you have to promote it and make sure it’s optimized for your SEO strategies. You also have to share it in the right places, in the right way and with the right audience. This is also a process that takes time and effort, all of which can bring lasting, positive results.
