To be found on Google nowadays, you need to tell a compelling story. It’s the story that your brand tells that motivates people to click further, read longer, and purchase more. Content marketing is the vehicle that drives your brand’s story to more people, and engages them consistently until they ultimately become a customer.
Why Content Marketing?
The question nowadays is really: Why not content marketing? Companies that blog 15 or more times a month get 5 times the amount of web traffic. 61% of consumers feel better about and are more likely to buy from a company that delivers custom content. And last but not least, content marketing costs 62% less than traditional marketing. If you just can’t believe it, check out newscred.com for our source.
