3 Steps To Effectively Use Content Marketing To Grow Your Business

1. Be consistent with your publishing.

Certain pieces of content imply different levels. How often you want to publish can impact the form of content marketing you pursue. For example, consistency is expected with blogs, newsletters, magazines, and podcasting. Consistency is wise, but not required when it comes to videos, ebooks, webinars, and infographics. If you know you will be inconsistent, go with content where consistency does not hinder results, such as guest blog posting.

2. Leverage audiences of others.

Guest blog posting is a great example of how to leverage someone else’s audience. Someone else has taken the time to grow a following. If you provide a guest post / article that includes where to learn more about you, this is one strategy to grow your own following. Keep in mind, whatever content you provide to someone else needs to be of value to their audience. Another example would be to teach a class hosted by someone else and to someone else’s audience.

3. Create it once and leverage it fully.

One piece of content can be re-used in many, many different ways. Let’s use a blog article as one example. This article can be broken down into tweets for Twitter, status updates for Facebook, group discussions on LinkedIn, recorded to create a podcast for itunes, content to create a simple video to distribute on YouTube. Do you see how you create the content once and it can be used to reach a wide audience on many different platforms?
