It costs very little to add on a blog to your website, create an enewsletter or update your Facebook or Twitter page. The most expensive thing will be your time. Of course you can pull out the big guns like IBM’s Cityone gaming website, but you don’t have to spend thousands.
3. Content marketing creates an emotional bond with your potential clients
Having interesting content that is of interest to your clients is going to keep bring your readers back to your website. For example; let’s look at Purina. While they predominantly market pet foods, they know if there is one thing people are passionate about, it’s their animals. So not only do Purina provide information about their products, they also provide information on every topic under the sun from pet nutrition and health problems to how to pick a new kitten.
The underlying subtext is that if you want healthy pets, and care about animals as much as Purina, you’ll choose Purina pet food next time you’re at the supermarket.
