Content marketing strategy tips: what is your goal?
The goal when you get started with your content marketing should be to seek natural linking building through quality and ‘shareable? content. You also need to publish regular content on your own website so that you can get additional links from social media and social bookmarking tools; as well as to position yourself as a thought leader. Never underestimate the SEO benefits that being linked in a high quality authority blog or page can give to your website, but always start by creating original brand content yourself.
Blogger outreach can be extremely effective. It involves contacting individual bloggers and asking them if they are interested in either hosting some content that is create exclusively for them (also known as guest posting); or the blogger themselves writing some content and mentioning or linking to the website or brand that you require.
