The Most Important Thing You Can Do Before Starting Your Content Marketing Campaign
Before you even start thinking about creating a content marketing campaign, you'll need to make one important decision: do you want to be a traditional marketer or do you want to be a content creator? If you're a traditional marketer, you'll be responsible for creating and distributing content. On the other hand, if you want to become a content creator, you'll deal only with distributing content. In this case, you'd be more of a self-publisher than a publisher. As a self-publisher, you'd create all of your own content, so you'd have more freedom to choose what you want to distribute and how you want to advertise it. As a traditional marketer, however, you'd have to create all of the content for your campaign and then distribute it through a traditional marketing strategy like paid advertising or SEO.
The Different Types of Content Marketing
There are three main types of content marketing: current affairs, health and wellness, and productivity. Current affairs is best described as news and analysis that reflect current events. Health and wellness content deals with personal health and wellness topics such as healthy eating, exercise, and stress reduction. Productivity content deals with career, job hunt, and work-from-home topics such as career success and employee motivation.
The Steps to Creating A Content Marketing Campaign
Once you've decided whether you want to be a traditional marketer or content creator, you'll need to come up with a plan for how you're going to market and distribute your content. One way to do this is to create a content marketing strategy that includes steps like: identifying the audience you want to reach, developing a goals and objectives for your content marketing campaign, and writing up a plan for advertising, distributing, and tracking your content marketing efforts. Once you've created your strategy, you can start implementing the steps of your campaign in order to accomplish your goals.
Successful Content Marketing Campaigns
When you're successful at creating a content marketing campaign, it's important to remember that success isn't always the result of one factor. For example, a successful social media campaign was also based on measuring and analyzing internal metrics such as how many followers, how many likes, and how many shares each post received.
Content marketing is effective when it's done right. To be successful, you'll need to take steps like creating a content marketing strategy, developing a content marketing campaign, measuring and analyzing internal metrics, and reviewing your campaign after several weeks or months to see whether the progress you made was what you expected it to be.
