NEW YORK, June 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- While savvy small business owners continue to focus their attention on producing quality content that brings awareness to their brand, what will distinguish the successful marketers is the ability to identify unconventional content formats that helps to strengthen their online presence and stimulates demand from within their audience. One of the most difficult challenges is the ability to come up with fresh content on a continual basis. In the latest PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit post, contributing author Shannon Ramlochan explores three low-cost content types that can assist with marketers' content creation efforts.
- External contributors. Sustain the content creation efforts by associating with industry thought leaders that can provide variety and offer a different perspective to your audience.
- "Man on the street" interviews. Use this classic journalism tactic to utilize real people and real challenges and how your product or service helped them to overcome their problem.
- Twitter chats. Increase your brand's visibility by hosting a Twitter chat focused on a topic that is important to your industry. This is an easy way to network with industry peers, provide your audience access to thought leadership and engage in meaningful discussion.
