5 ways to make readers "share" it

The "share" button...it's the holy grail of compliments for your content. It's like getting a bonus at work or an "atta-boy" for a job well done. The share button seems more elusive than the boss giving you a pat on the back. Yet, it can be just as simple to achieve.

the blueprints to success

Building a solid content marketing strategy is not unlike building a house. Both require basic construction knowledge, and each needs to be raised upon a solid foundation to guarantee success. If you were building a physical building, you wouldn't just start haphazardly driving nails into any available 2x4 you come across, nor would you start...

providing valuable content that delivers

The art of creating valuable content can make or break any website. Many organizations and businesses have established websites for the sole purpose of providing information about their products and services. That information has to be supplied in a way that creates value for the reader.

advertising is the art of identifying marketing potential

If catching customers requires patience and proper incentives, than advertising would be roughly analogous to using a fishing net while marketing would be suggestive of casting an individual lure into the water in search of your fish. Both are effective methods of putting food on the table and share similar goals, but the two methods are vastly...

5 mistakes business owners make when building brand loyalty

Brand loyalty almost seems a thing of the past. More like, it is the kind of thing our grandparents believed rather than something in full force today.

how to get your content read

Getting your content in front of your present and future customers can be frustrating. After all, if the content isn't seeing the light of day, it is not doing its job. Business owners need the content to be seen, read and understood for the creation of the content to be worth the effort.

In this world, building a trustworthy and worthwhile brand can be like a minefield. Building the strongest brand possible for your business, or the re-branding of your existing one is no easy task. Every action that is taken has to have the big picture in mind, and be focused on your target audience.

socialize your internal marketing

Wise companies realize that they have both internal and external customers. We all know who the external customers are; they're the people who buy our products and/or services. We know how to focus our marketing efforts on this group (or at least, we should.) However, many people are less clear about the concept of internal...

grab your market one small chunk at a time

The psychological term is "chunking." It is a phenomenon that explains the human condition of short and long-term memory retention. The human brain is a complex beast and we humans have yet to fully figure it out or harness its full potential. Chunking references our brain's ability to store only so much information into our...

Consider all of the companies and their branding that you see on a daily basis. Nike. McDonald's. Samsung. Microsoft.

what does content strategy have to do with it?

The number of social media sites and their 24/7 access makes it easy for businesses to post whatever happens to cross their manager's mind.
