In a nutshell, Content Marketing is the art of winning business without pushy selling. Content marketing is a marketing approach that puts the customer first: sharing information that is relevant and valuable to those who buy your products or services, so customers choose to come to you. Through digital media such as your website, blogs, social media, e-newsletters and videos as well as more traditional ones such as conferences, seminars, white-papers and published books, sharing your expertise freely is one of the best ways to build trust in a cynical world.
Because it works well in our internet-driven age when traditional more self-oriented marketing methods are losing their power.
Recent research has shown that less than 1% of us accept cold calling by telephone, 44% of us throw direct mail straight in the bin, and 86% of us skip through TV adverts. Content marketing gets away from all that. It’s a more meaningful, comfortable form of marketing – for buyers and sellers alike – and it is bringing many businesses the results they need. Content marketing is fast becoming the smart marketing choice in every sector and every size of business. One of the most exciting aspects of the recent updates to search engine algorithms is that quality content is receiving the recognition it has always deserved and Google’s Freshness Update places greater emphasis on returning newer content for search queries. So timely, relevant Content based Marketing is also rewarded in SEO terms.

Exceptional content that connects with the lives and passions of your target audience.
Once content is created, it needs to be published where your audience will find it. Tapping in to online publishers, editors, bloggers, social power-users and influencers to place your content in exactly the right place to reach the right people and build profitable audiences for your brand.
Without a significant audience, even the best content has no value. But, as with anything online, simply publishing content doesn’t guarantee it will be seen. Content needs to be promoted to attract and build its audience. We understand the art of online PR and we use unique, sophisticated techniques to market your content. Ultimately, this is what will drive your ROI.
