5 Tips to Better Content Marketing

By Paige Reno

In this day and age, regular marketing is a thing of the past. In order to really get to your customers, businesses must implement the very best content marketing strategies.

Below are some tips to make sure your business is getting the most from your customers.

Know your audience

First things first, know your audience. This sounds simple, but this includes knowing what your customers want before they do.

If you were a customer what would you want out of your company? Are there any up-and-coming trends that could influence your customers? Put yourself in their shoes. So put your market research to the test and find out what makes consumers tick.

Engage your audience

Think about it. Your attention span is short. Your readers don’t have time either, but if they stay on your website for more than 2 minutes, it’s a success. Content marketing is at its best when consumers forget you are marketing a product.

Entertain and Inspire your audience

It is important to make sure you customer feels entertained, whether this be with the latest technology or just by creating a catchy song. If you can appeal to the customer’s five senses and get them to have a reaction to your product, you are more likely to see a return on investment.

Follow your audience

No, don’t be a stalker in real life. Follow them online. Keep tabs on where your target audience gets their information and pursue the channel that makes the most sense for your company.

If your target audience is spending less time on Facebook and more time on Snapchat, then switch to Snapchat. Plain and simple. This will make sure your audience doesn’t forget about you.

Add value to your audience

Make sure you are providing your customers with content they care about. Have you noticed a pattern? That’s right, it’s all about YOUR AUDIENCE when it comes to content marketing. We know you want them, so make them want you.
