1. What Is The Purpose Your Business?
Many people think that the purpose of a business is simply to make a profit, but this is not the case. All the efforts of a successful business are aimed at creating customers in some way. Profits are the result of creating and keeping customers in a cost-effective way over time.
The cost of creating customers initially is very high. The cost of keeping them is far lower than the cost of creating them in the first place. If you study the companies that are the most efficient at marketing, you will find that their strategies are all aimed at creating customers and then holding onto them.
2. Determine Objectives for Content Marketing
Why are you doing this at all? What is content going to do for your organization? Create awareness? Generate leads? Improve loyalty and retention?
Remember: The goal isn’t to be good at content marketing. The goal is to be good at business because of content marketing
3. Join local business organizations and networking groups.
Many, such as home-based business groups, are inexpensive to join. And the marketing benefits are huge. Once they get to know you and what you do, the other business people in your group will mention your business to others and may even give you referrals. Local business organizations are also great opportunities to create and participate in some cooperative marketing strategies, such as holding special Market Days or other events.
4. Meet with your team more often.
Whether you have a dedicated content marketing team or not, it’s important to meet regularly with those responsible for your content creation and promotion.
We know that the most effective marketers meet either daily or weekly. If you’re meeting with your team less often, there’s a good chance that important tasks are falling through the cracks.
5. Have specific business goals for your content.
When I ask business owners what they hope to accomplish from their content, nine times out of 10 they say, “Increased sales”. But the reality is that there are few times when a single piece of content can be directly tied to revenue.
So, what realistic business goals can you set out for your content? Some of the most common are increased leads, brand awareness (keeping your company top of mind) and customer retention.
