    Content is the cornerstone of innovative marketing strategies.

    From shopping to entertainment to education, the digital age has revolutionized nearly every aspect of everyday life. Clever marketers are aware of this and have adopted new, innovative strategies to match.

    Today, content is produced and distributed rapidly across blogs and social media. And advertising teams use this to their advantage by employing global content marketing. Put simply, these advertisers share content that is useful and relevant to their target audiences around the world.

    Think about it: what’s the first thing you do when confronted with a problem? More often than not, you’ll hit up Google in search of answers. There are currently many forums, blogs and websites that make it their job to provide you with the information and solutions you need, be it in the form of product reviews, listicles or DIYs.

    So, what if your company leveraged this demand for information to promote your product? Well, that’s exactly what content marketing does. By offering content that helps out your potential customers, people value you as a source of information and, soon enough, as a provider of goods and services they’re interested in.

    Costco, for instance, publishes a free cookbook once a year. It’s full of delicious recipes and doesn’t contain any ads. Yet, it’s a very successful piece of marketing. Why? Because customers appreciate how useful it is. The cookbook shows that Costco isn’t always after profit – they also want to make life easier for their customers. This boosts customer loyalty to the Costco brand.

    Of course, if you’re in the web-design business, a cookbook isn’t going to reel in the clients. Your approach to content marketing has to be tailored to your target audience, and that requires market research. If you have a clear understanding of what information your audience is seeking, then you’ll be able to produce valuable and profitable content that gives your brand both depth and appeal.

    Great app. Good selection of book summaries you can read or listen to while commuting. Instead of scrolling through your social media news feed, this is a much better way to spend your spare time in my opinion.
