Clever content marketing does the work for you.
Content marketing was born from the explosion in social media, where users share great content that’s relevant to their interests. Content marketing means putting people at the heart of your marketing efforts using great ideas and storytelling – whether through a humorous blog post on a current trend, a cutting-edge industry report or a viral video. Most importantly, it puts your brand directly in front of customers, and encourages them to inform others about your business.

Content marketing works on a simple principle: create something people find interesting, informative, entertaining or outrageous, and watch as it proliferates online.
It may be a funny video of staff doing a dance, industry-leading research into upcoming trends and changes in your sector, or a clever illustration showing how many bags of sugar the UK eats on average every second.
The more people see your great content, the more social shares and news pick-ups you’ll see. This creates a classic content cycle – where the more visibility you get, the more shares and mentions you get.

Content marketing is more than just industry buzz
Traditional marketing used to somewhat force the message: buy this, use these, try this!
It was difficult to make marketing look like anything other than advertising.
And whilst this hammerhead approach was effective, to some extent, consumers got savvier and began eschewing overt advertising – especially online, where, because of spammers, phishers, tricksters and hackers, blatant advertising can’t always be trusted.
Interruptive marketing models always required a big hook to draw people in.
And in most cases, marketing was about brand building, with somewhat washy methods for measuring success.
Online, the game has changed.
Content marketing is a supportive model. By creating something which adds value to customers, they will be more than happy to share. After all, if you’ve raised a smile, or even an eyebrow, your customers may want to share this joy with their friends.
Great content marketing doesn’t even look like marketing. Selling bespoke men’s boots? Create an infographic about the way male shoe sizes have grown in the last century, tie it to a tongue-in-cheek conclusion about big feet, and ensure your brand name is placed modestly on the image.
It’s hardly an advert: just a bit of silly fun. But it will get shared online: and that can quickly help to build associations between your business, and men’s shoes.
