When you hear the term ‘content marketing’, you might just think it’s a web-based strategy, needed for SEO and not a lot else. You’d be wrong. Content marketing, for me at least, can and most certainly does exist beyond the keyboard. I’d tie it in with print, and to some degree offline advertising too. Your leaflets, posters, as well as print, radio and TV ads are all forms of content.
There was once a time when Nokia dominated the mobile phone market. The company revolutionised the mobile industry with their ‘candy bar’ style handsets. They were the pioneers of the industry, creating nearly indestructible phones and developing some of the world’s first colour screen mobiles.
There are no shortage of places to create content. From different platforms for your own website like WordPress and Tumblr, to guest blogging and more. Whilst some may have assumed that Medium is just another imitator, in this post I’m going to explain what makes Medium different and how it represents a fantastic early opportunity to get your content seen.
Whether you are new to “content marketing” or have been engaging in activities of this nature for some time now, there is plenty to be gained in the digital environment from this form of marketing. Most critically wherever the convergence of SEO and content are becoming more apparent, a content plan is essential in helping to deliver the best results.

“Squee! LOL! OMG! Totes Amazeballs!”
Believe it or not, all of the above words can now be found in the dictionary (although amazeballs is still confined to Collins Online Dictionary, the forward-thinker’s favourite).
I am a big fan of cult television shows. With great scripts and compelling characters, they are often completely addictive and I have no shame in admitting that I am prone to becoming well and truly hooked to particular programmes.
Have you ever considered Google as a publisher of content? Well in fact they facilitate the publishing of content; but as a result of their overarching power, they have changed the content landscape. Whether that’s for better or worse is now up for discussion.
There’s not much point in creating content if it has no objective. Just because you need to avoid the hard-sell (otherwise you’re just writing sales copy to be frank), you still want your content to produce results.
Building and sustaining your brand’s reputation all depends on keeping the promises you make to customers. If a brand can consistently meet (or even better exceed) the promises it makes to its followers, then its reputation is in safe hands.
Although this is relevant to any form of content that you create, it’s fundamental when writing effective and engaging website copy.
