Content is a big Kingdom in which the world resides. Today we all are connected digitally. The world is not more than a big village. Because everything that we experience today is digital. And only digital things have the potential to take us into the future. Nowadays every other business is on the digital front, either to promote their content or to be a bigger business than the competition. But the ultimate input remains as the content only because content circulates and the content will give you the recognition you want.
If we take a very big example, you can take the example of Amazon Prime Video. Prime Video is a loss leader. The loss leader means a product that actually never makes a very big profit or just breaks even occasionally. Not only Prime Video, but the whole prime subscription thing is a loss leader for Amazon, but with that loss leader, Amazon generates value for the users. And in return, users are bound to take products from Amazon. Because as a prime member, you are getting Music, Videos, Unlimited media downloads, Alexa, wallet. All at once and you’re linked to an Amazon app that gives you push notifications for deals beforehand everybody. With this loss leader, Amazon has reserved the e-commerce supplier position in your life. So now if you’re a prime member, whenever you want to buy something, you will automatically buy it from Amazon because they are giving you so much value that you’re already inclined towards them. This is what content marketing does to a business. Amazon never made its content, but it is circulating content on its platform which gives value. And that value is propagated by the customers and given back to the company as revenue.
How will you start content marketing for your business?
It is irrespective of the type of business you own. If it is a digital business, a product-based business, or a service-based business, you need to make content that is relatable to your niche. That means if you sell medicines or medicinal supplies, you need to make people aware of medicine and medicine industry-related problems. If you solve small conundrums that people face while buying and selling medicines, then you’re solving a problem in everybody’s life and you are attaining that valuable position in a person’s eye as a content creator who also owns a brand. Now you are the solution to the problem, as well as the product that gives the solution to the problem.
You need to start a blog and a newsletter: Your blog will be the written format of the videos and photos That you are circulating. Also, make a newsletter that will be on a subscription basis so that you can rely on to consumer lead base. Send them notifications in the form of emails and messages to make them aware of the different deals and offers that you are providing for your product. Even if you are an individual who has a business and who is a digital creator as well, you can earn your own money as well as recognition for your brand. If you are running a paid newsletter, make enough value for your readers so that they give the amount that is needed to run ads for your business. That is how content will be marketed throughout the channels and without your effort.
Social media is the key to everything: This statement is very true because where are the customers everybody is on social media. You need to chase the customers to make them, your consumers. And once they are your consumers, you need to propagate enough value in your product so that they can give you repeat business every time.
The fact is that the best known will beat the best every time. If you are on social media and you are known to people, then people are prone to understand and believe in you when you are saying this product is going to make a difference in our life rather than someone who is the best in the industry, with no recognition. This is all content creation and content marketing and makes for your business. The goodwill which is so much essential for any business can be earned easily through content marketing.
