Five Ways Content Marketing Connects Brands & Customers (@1to1media) http://ow.ly/8uHBA As Anna Papachristos writes for 1to1Media:

“Joe Chernov, vice president of content marketing at Eloqua, defines content marketing as ‘the art of creating, distributing, and measuring share-worthy content that grows and engages an organization’s audience, while deepening affinity for the brand.’ But as this ‘share-worthy content’ expands in terms of form and delivery, content marketers need to blend old and new tactics to keep their content effective and engaging.”

Some of Papachristos’ five ways may be new to you; others, helpful reminders.

  1. Encourage Sharing – with short-form content that engages targets in conversation
  2. Solve Problems – with content that is informative, not self-promotional
  3. Re-Use and Re-Purpose – to extend the reach of each piece
  4. Observe and Report – “Content marketing isn’t about simply dumping a glut of articles or videos online; it’s about strategically presenting customers with particularly
    applicable information at crucial points in the buying cycle.”
  5. Serve It Up Social – leverage social networks to extend the reach of your content … and your brand
