A simple guide to creating a content marketing strategy, editorial calendar, and promotion plan.
As a strategic media planning and buying agency, we work with brands to raise awareness and generate leads. As a part of that effort, we often provide content support for our clients. Sometimes this comes in the form of writing copy for websites, landing pages, and ads. Other times, it is a more robust effort to launch or support a content marketing initiative.
Content marketing is a long-term strategy and it can take a while before you see noticeable results. Over time, content marketing builds brand awareness, generates targeted leads, and improves your SEO. When you pair content marketing with advertising, you leverage the power of both tactics, improving your short- and long-term results as well as the return on your investment. These complementary tactics work very well together.
