The Different Ways You Can Benefit From Content Marketing
Content marketing is all about making your content valuable. It's all about referring people to other sources. Think about it: If you're trying to sell someone something, you want to be able to point them in another direction. If you're selling a product or service, you want to be able to say, “Hey, check this out. It's this amazing thing.” And if you're marketing your work, you want to be able to say, “Hey, do you like this thing I do?”
The Benefits of Content Marketing
There are many benefits to content marketing. For starters, it's free. What do you have to pay for content? You don't. Content marketing is also time consuming and difficult to do. If you want to market your work, you have to write it, edit it, proofread it, and then market it. If you want to do it right, it can take a long time.
The Different Types of Content Marketing
There are two main types of content marketing: paid and unpaid. Paid content is what we've all come to know and love: A company pays you to write something (usually value-add content). Unpaid content is what most people think of when they hear content marketing: The stuff you find on blogospheres or on Facebook. If you're looking to market your work, you should consider unpaid content.
