Have you ever come across an article that addresses and answers the exact same question of your online search? If yes, it is very likely that you have seen a good example of content marketing.
Content Marketing Definition:
“Content marketing is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly-defined audience — and, ultimately, to drive profitable customer action.”
When you think of Content Marketing, think about developing engaging and useful content for your target customers. Rather than marketing fluff, consider content that speaks to target customers, answers their questions, and addresses their pain points. Since both people and search engines reward that, it is no wonder that Content Marketing has exploded in recent years.
