Content Marketing: A marketing technique of creating and distributing valuable, relevant and consistent content to attract and acquire a clearly defined audience- with the objective of driving a profitable customer action. Content Marketing is a strategy that some brands hit the mark with while others fall flat. Being able to create content that targets a specific audience with the right mix of quality and quantity may seem a daunting task. But with today’s tools and the era of social media serving as an easy promotion tool, content marketing is easier than ever. Creating a production and promotion plan means you are one step ahead of the competition and pushes your brand to truly go after its customers in their natural habitats.
