What the year has prepared for us? We seem to always wonder about what will come to be of the industry we work in and the content marketing field. Most known marketers have their own speculations. In any sense the digital marketing approach will become more empowered, but why?
Choosing Quality over Quantity
Companies engaged in content marketing produced a great number of blog posts, visually interesting infographics and even video materials this year. But the quality of the materials is not always high when you produce by the dozen. What firms have come to realize is that content marketing is no longer an experiment for them and they can actually use it for their benefit.
For others, digital marketing was an afterthought, which proved to deliver results for the little income and energy they invested in it. All they need is a better strategy and yes, that means resources and budget as well. All in all, it’s proven that it’s no longer a game or a thing of chance to invest in content. It’s even a better solution than online ads. That’s how real content g will get traction this year.
Understanding the end buyer
Let’s face it, what companies care the most about at the end of the day is profit. But they also know that in order to get their heart’s desire, they need to take the product and the discussion to the user itself. So where are your customers nowaday? Apparently they are less conscientiously shopping in your store and more in on-line stores or comparing prices with other supermarkets even when they are in your own shop.
So this way content marketing will get even more authority because businesses need to be where their customers are. And they will need apps and product descriptions and other content materials to make them stay focused on their own brand and shop. They also need to appeal to the customer which is not an easy task. Because even it might simple to have customer-centric content, companies still think the product-centric would do better.
Diverse Content Marketing in the everchanging technology
This aspect will not able to be denied by company managers and business owners. It might not seem an important aspect to focus on content marketing when it’s all constrained to the laptop screens. But what about when your customer carries it in its pocket at every activity of the day? Mobile technology has changed not just the design of the pages and the technology through which it’s presented, but also the way the content is created.
And it’s not going to stop there. How will content look when it’s presented in our clothes, or in our Glasses and will have a burst because wearable technology becomes more popular. Through well thought out strategies companies can be there at the right moment with not just the mention of their brand but the clear action to buying their product.
As Mark Schaefer putted
What does marketing look like when the Internet surrounds us like the air that we breathe? Fascinating to think about.
What the year has to offer
Content marketing will be more customized in the future. To the client’s needs, to the niches is the news and to the latest technologies.
All this rise the demand not for content as always expected but for exceptional, original, valuable content.
