As is true with every industry, marketing loves its terms. Don’t let the phrase “Content Marketing” intimidate you.
Bringing meaningful organization to the multitudes of content available today is easily a full-time job and daunting task for even an experienced writer. The fabulous thing is that we each bring our own focus to the content as we strive to provide the segments of our target audience with interesting and relevant content in a timely manner.
With all of the content available to today’s consumers, you have not quite two and a half minutes to make a positive impression so it is essential that your content meets your customer where he is in the buyer’s journey. Content aligned to each phase of the buyer’s journey is the important link between marketing and sales and helps to ensure that the right information and right motivation are delivered at the right time.
By now, most people have had some exposure to the hunky dentist doing a dance challenge in the hallways of his practice. The video went viral almost immediately. (Here is a link, in case you missed it!)

Considering starting a new business? Have one started and waiting for things to take off? For small business owners and entrepreneurs, one of the biggest pain points is often that they are not getting enough eyes on their site or reaching enough people to let them know about their business. Obviously, the amount of traffic you are getting to your website really affects your company’s bottom line.
Your company’s website is one of the most crucial components of your marketing and branding strategy. Sure, we could hop in and do your socials, throw some money into ads that will drive traffic, design and mail out postcards, or do other means of advertising to generate you new traffic or even better, business. If your website is lacking, however, that is putting the cart before the horse.
