When thinking of ways to reach your business goals, have you ever considered hiring a content marketer? Chances are, you've heard of the importance of content creation, but what makes it a fundamental marketing tactic for the success of your brand?
According to the Pew Research Center, 28% of adults are almost always online, while 88% log on every day. To be successful, you need to reach your audience from where they are, and more than likely, they're online. Many consumers make their buying decisions while scrolling through media and articles. In fact, 61 percent of internet users in the US decided to buy a product after reading a positive blog post.
Content development is the most cost-efficient marketing method. Its conversion rates are six times higher than other digital marketing methods while costing around 62% less. With a consistent approach, the benefits only compound as your website and other means of delivering your credible message to the public brings in more and more traffic.
Even with stats backing its effectiveness, 63% of businesses don't have a listed content marketing plan. Are you one of these businesses? If so, there are many reasons to change your marketing approach with a content creator's help.
I have to admit I have days that I feel enslaved by social media. I have days where I am uninspired about my own brand and I just draw a blank as to what I should post on my business social media pages...and I'm a social media marketer! I can only imagine how you must feel. My excuse is usually that I don't have enough time for my own marketing because I am busy marketing for my clients, which I guess is a good problem to have, but I know better. If you are attacking your social media marketing with a day-to-day method, then it is easy to fall into this trap. We all get tired, burned out, and sometimes just don't have the creative energy that each day requires to put our message out there.
So what do we do about that?
