The power of content to engage your audience and drive lead generation

The motto ‘Content is king’ has been around for decades and at it’s core this statement still remains true. For those investing in content marketing there are several stages to consider from outlining your content strategy and selecting the right content platform, to content creation and defining the metrics that measure perceived success.

Moreover, depending on your objectives, you’ll need to decide if responsibility for your content marketing resides internally with your in-house marketing team, or externally with your appointed PR or digital/SEO agency.

One thing is for sure – both will want to get involved with defining, building and executing your content marketing strategy: And quite rightly so as they have different, yet complimentary skillsets to bring to the table. In my personal experience it makes sense for any agencies you’re engaging with to work together in a collaborative fashion to achieve the desired results for their client.
