Content marketing editorial teams have daily options: create a quick news angle or select content from a content inventory. You’ve created great content, now use it.

You understand why content marketing is so damn important and what content marketers do, let’s look at what exactly is content.

What is this ‘content’ you speak of?’ What are the most popular content marketing tactics (how do I view or use your message?):

  • Share your message on social media (status, tweet, etc)
  • Post an article
  • Stage an event (and produce more content from it)
  • Produce a blog
  • Produce a video
  • Produce an e-newsletter

    Kevin, I would add produce a Powerpoint or Keynote presentation (not that I’m a fan of those products or of confining your thought process to the brevity needed for Powerpoint–but people use those tools a lot). Add to Slideshare and to your Linkedin profile. And create visuals to accompany the content (if none exist) so that people notice what you have created and shared, Given the chaos of our daily lives online adding vibrant imagery can really help your content stand out.

    Good point. Forgot about those presents. What do you think of Sharepoint, Allen. I’ve used it a few times. Easy share.
