Why You Need to Use Content Marketing
The reason you need to use content marketing is because it's the best way to get your message in front of your audience. Your goal with content marketing is to gain exposure for your products or services, and then drive potential customers to your website or app. If you don't use content marketing, you're leaving yourself open for potential misdirection and diversion.
The Different Types of Content Marketing
There are three types of content marketing: paid, organic, and guest.
Paid content is produced by companies and organizations for revenue or promotion. It's either created for the purpose of driving traffic to a website or app, or it's used to compete with other websites or apps. Organic content is created by individuals and businesses without the intent of driving traffic to a website or app. It can be written in any language, published on any platform, and it can always be found on the Internet by simply searching for its name.
The Different Methods of Content Marketing
There are two different methods of content marketing: paid and organic.
A paid content campaign can be created through advertisements, contests, or giveaways. An organic content campaign can be created by pumping out content on social media, writing blog posts, or publishing blog posts on a regular basis. Both paid and organic content campaigns have their advantages and disadvantages, but choosing which method to use will depend on your goals and audience.

Now that you know why you need to use content marketing, the next step is to write a mission statement for your content marketing campaign. Your mission statement should tell your audience why they should go over to your website or app and read your content. Once you've created your mission statement, it's time to start writing your content.
