What the Heck is Content Marketing Anyway? {Podcast}

what the heck is content marketing anyway?

As a digital marketer, I throw around the “content marketing” term all day long. But, if you don’t work in the space, it may sound like a confusing marketing buzzword that has left you scratching your head.
 It doesn’t help that there are tons of definitions out there
 for content marketing.

That’s why
 in this week’s episode of the Pushing Social Podcast, Stan and I want to clear up the confusion and help you better understand content marketing and why it’s a valuable tool for your business.

Here’s what we cover in this week’s episode:

  • What content marketing is (and what it isn’t)
  • How is content marketing different than sales content?
  • Why simply creating content is not enough – distribution and promotion is critical
  • The key ingredients of a successful content strategy
  • How do you know what kind of content to write or create?
  • Should you outsource content marketing?
  • Expert tips to always have content ideas at the ready
  • How does content marketing drive results and how long does it take to
     get ROI?
  • How much content is enough to achieve success?
  • Quick, actionable tips to create more content

Love ya, love what you write….but in remote Malaysia and can’t easily listen to the podcast,,,,,,would love to see a written transcript….I know, it’s a lot of work and maybe not much call for it, but, just saying…

Hi Terrance – Waving hello from Nashville! So great to see you here and appreciate you leaving a comment.

Great point about a transcript. I’m with you – I often prefer to read instead of listening or watching. We’ll look into a transcript. Thanks for the suggestion!
