Content Marketing Challenges
All businesses creating content marketing strategies have a natural instinct to pitch product, talk about the company, and sell within the content context. Cease and desist!
Leave the selling for advertising. Content marketing has to be 100% focused on the consumer and thought out from the consumer perspective or it will fail. If you provide the consumer with content they truly value, they will return…hungry for more.
