Digital marketing is always changing and evolving. Right now, the biggest talk surrounds content marketing. It was proven to be highly effective for brands in practically all industries. However, the big problem is that content marketing is not as understood as it could be. In fact, there are so many misconceptions that appear whenever talking about using content for marketing purposes. This includes the really common ones mentioned below and curated by:
1 – The Belief That Content Only Helps With SEO
You are so close to clients these days thanks to the evolution of social networks. As a result, in-person engagement is no longer necessary. Your consumers are very happy to interact with you through chatbots, live chats, social networks, emails, and so on. This is where content marketing steps in to give you a helping hand.
You engage customers with your content. This helps increase SEO and also reduces the sales cycle’s length. Your content helps the potential customer to understand the organization.
2 – The Belief The Appearance Of A Site Is Enough For Traffic
You need a site in this day of age and it needs to be attractive. However, a great appearance is not enough to drive sales and get those customers you want. Great content is absolutely necessary for every single website. It does not matter if you are a B2C or a B2B establishment.
It is the content that is the most important part of a site. In fact, content has to be regularly created and a part of the sales funnel you have in place.
3 – The Belief That Marketing Is More Effective
Marketing as a whole has several flaws when it is compared with regular content creation. You cannot personalize advertising as it is costly. Also, it is just a one-time investment unless you decide to keep spending money frequently on your ads.
With content, you can target customer personalities. Your content marketing campaigns can be individualized, are evergreen, and are not at all pricey. When you use regular advertising methods, it is impossible to create a relationship with the client. With routine content, this is easy to do.
4 – Only Long-Form Content Can Make A Strong Impact
Long-form content is very useful for search engine optimization. However, this is not at all easy to create. Also, the fact that you do not have the resources needed to create the long-form content cannot properly stop you from publishing content. The organization you manage would even be able to get leads as it posts content on LinkedIn or on other social networks. The important thing is to provide value to possible customers. It is not really important what the size is. You can always gain something.
5 – Content Marketing Is Blogging
Contrary to popular belief, content marketing isn’t just blogging. It is so much more. It is all about distributing content in a highly effective way while using several channels. On a blog, you often create content and you might not even disperse it. You use it for other purposes. With proper content marketing, you do so much more.
