- Content marketing is about more than links and flashy titles. Great content is about adding value and creating long-term audiences.
- This approach can over time build brand awareness, engagement, links, repeat visits, and sales. Take your time with producing quality content that will resonate with your target audience.
- There are three types of content you should be aware of: hero, hub and hygiene (functional / evergreen content)
- Personas are incredibly important for creating long-term audiences. Spend time identifying who you want to target with messaging around your product or service.
