Content marketing is the strategy of communicating with your audience and prospects without selling to them.
Instead of pitching yourself, you are delivering information that helps your buyers. The content is about and for them, not you.
Results show that when businesses consistently deliver valuable information to their audience, they are ultimately rewarded with their business and loyalty. And it can be said this way, they are either at your party or someone else’s – so give them reasons to go to yours.
Associations have been in the content marketing game for a long time, so what’s new here? I think it is the accountability aspect. Now you can measure engagement with your content and you use the results to inform creating more valuable content. And combined with online marketing you can achieve the results you’re after.
