Go Beyond the Blog
Blogging is a great first step, but keeping your readers coming back to your blog is paramount. Email blasts when new blog posts are posted is essential. Next, use that email to redirect traffic back to older posts that relate to the subject at hand. Don’t forget to use that email blast to advertise anything newsworthy going on your site.
Make and Use Videos
Take Advantage of Social Media
Where would we be without it? Social media might be the world’s best marketing tool, and that goes for extending your business’s content marketing reach, too. Include brief content or links to content or videos in your tweets and posts. Don’t be afraid to use older content, if it’s relatable. Maximize the use of all of your content, new or old. Just be sure there is a substantial amount to peruse through. You don’t want to be repetitive.
However you decide to get your content out there and into the laps of a larger audience, don’t wait. Content marketing is almost guaranteed to be in use by your competitors, and you don’t want to fall behind. Articles, blogs, tips, tutorials and videos can be a fantastic way to keep people reading, watching and talking about what your business has to offer. Keeping your brand foremost in consumer’s minds can only create more success for your business, large or small.
