Content Marketers, Quit Selling Like It’s 2004 [Infographic]


Is your content focusing strictly on pushing sales? It’s not 2004! Today’s savvy customers expect more from content.

Here’s a look at some content-creation tips from a Captora infographic.

“Spend time learning about your customers, and give them content that resonates,” suggests Captora. Despite the importance of listening, content marketing’s primary focus (47%) is to create content for websites, social media, advertising, and print publications. Communicating regularly with customers and commercial contacts ranks low (5%) on the list.

“Stop creating content in a bubble,” recommends Captora. “Feedback and research help! Research your audience to determine meaningful information to share with them, and you’ll see the benefits of good content marketing.”
