How to create a killer content marketing campaign (10 simple steps)
10 simple steps
1.Make time Don’t blame time limitations for not not being able to create content that really makes an impact. Use the suggestion by @ExactTargetUK and implement a time tracking system to gain a better insight of where resources should be allocated. That way you can create accountability, making it easier to meet goals and expectations successfully .
2. Be consistent 43% of marketers say they’re producing more content than the year before... 24% are producing “significantly more” than the year before, according to @webdotcom. Produce consistently engaging content by listening to feedback from your clients and honing your content.
3. Don’t let a limited budget hold you back This doesn’t mean you have to make less of an impact, just that you need to think about different and clever ways of sharing information. Don’t use limited staff or budget as an excuse!
4. Connect your content to your business values Throughout the process of content creation ensure that your business values are at the core of your messages. @Forrester says 85% of marketing leaders fail to connect content activity to business values, preventing clients from engaging effectively.
