Overview

Content marketing is the art of communicating with customers and the target audience without selling. It involves the sharing of information, rather than pitching products and services. As traditional marketing becomes less and less effective, today's marketers need to rethink what they've learned about sales and marketing communication. In order to keep current customers, engage potential customers and make a business stand out from the crowd, they need to create content that is both relevant and valuable.

Valuable Content Marketing is written for this business environment showing readers how to generate business through creating compelling marketing content and distributing it effectively. The authors show how to create and share the type of information that clients, customers and search engines really want - on a website, using social media and through traditional print methods. Getting it right means a huge opportunity to connect with clients and customers in ways they appreciate and trust.

Jefferson and Tanton explain how to go beyond artfully produced information to content that is of real value to the target audience. Whether starting a business or looking to grow, their book shows marketers and business owners how to get better results from their marketing efforts.

Readers will learn: the content options available and how to choose the right channel, what type of information to post on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn as well as business blogs and websites, how to define your market niche, how to increase SEO and so much more.
