Content marketing has been the entire buzz since Google started to sniff out all the nasty and manipulative links over the web. Don’t worry, I won’t start with why content is so important in this line of work (yes, yes, I know that you know that content is king).
I’ve been thinking of writing this post for quite some time now, and I’ve even wrote the draft for this post while I was away for a business trip late last week.
Content marketing has grown its importance over the past couple of years in the online marketing realm. And one of the most evident factors of why brands and online marketers have started to embrace this marketing practice is the constant changes (algorithm updates) occurring in the search space.
This branch of marketing has proven its efficiency, especially in demonstrating thought-leadership and the approach’s ability to improve a business’ lead generation process.
Over the years, blogs or weblogs have proven its effectiveness as a marketing tool for individuals and brands when used to communicate ideas and information.
Two apparent reasons why this platform for content publishing and community building is so effective in business marketing are its capability to easily spread awareness through interactivity and audience engagement, and its ability to influence consumers’ buying decisions.
