2) Content Marketing
If there are bricks to the foundation we’re describing here, it’s content. You can’t market without it.
Most people get that, but creating content that both builds trust in your brand and motivates conversions is probably the biggest challenge in marketing.
Content marketing professionals integrate SEO, ad copy, and brand stories into your website, blog, ads, and social media.
Digital platforms have powerful reach, but they’re also excellent for keeping your message cohesive. The best content creators help you rank in search results, build affinity with a relatable storyline, and motivate with conversion-focused content.
This work takes skill and time. When it’s effective it leverages your competitive advantage while making a connection to the lifestyle aspirations of your audience.
3) Social Media Management
Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn are places where people live-out their digital lives. The social media feed connects people to their networks and news of the world. It broadcasts scintillating, extraordinary, and strange human events. And it exposes them to commercial brand stories from businesses like yours.
You can execute direct-response advertising on social media, which works particularly well with retargeting audiences. But moreover, you want to be on social media because it’s where the party is happening. If you’re visible and active on social, it’s similar having the prime location for a physical business. Strong social media is like being located on the busiest street in town.
A phenomenon called social proof occurs. When people see you’re active and have a strong following, they assume you’re doing something right. Just like when you see a crowded restaurant and assume the food must be good. That many people can’t be wrong.
This is why social media management is a building block of marketing success. Similar to having a strong reputation, active social develops a positive perception of your business.
