NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Once you've created your marketing strategy, there's no shortage of the different types of content that you can integrate into your plan. From infographics and newsletters to ebooks and case studies, marketers face a difficult challenge determining what strategy will work best for their audience. Producing different forms of high quality content that routinely provides good information will help create authority for your brand, which is vital to the success of your business.
Kemari Howell, marketing coordinator for Pubsoft.com, believes a good mix of visual and textual content can help expand your customer base and create brand loyalty in the following ways:
- Customers: New and Old. Leverage content marketing to help make your customers feel like you know them as much as they know you. Keeping your customers informed throughout the entire buying process will help attract new clients and keep your current clients engaged.
- Become the go-to person in your field. Continuing to produce relevant content for your audience will establish yourself as the solution provider in your industry.
- Put a face and a voice behind your brand. Give your brand a personal side that allows customers to connect with you before they are even ready to make a purchase or raise their hand. Make yourself approachable through the content that you publish, and dive into what makes your brand unique.
- Tried and True. Content marketing is an up-front expense that continues to bring value long after it's been paid for. It offers a strong return on investment that will consistently increase the value of your brand.
- Customer Advocates = referrals. Most happy customers have friends that they can refer to your business. Use your content to establish relationships that will help increase sales and bring in customer referrals.
