    • Consumers are overwhelmed by marketing messages every day

  • To Be Effective, Our Marketing Message Needs To Change. We Need To Change Our Approach.
  • What Exactly Is Content?
    • Content can come in many different formats: articles, videos, streaming or downloadable audio, podcasts, eBooks and PDFs
    • Great ideas of what consumers are searching for include: buyer’s guides, free reports, how to articles, product reviews, comparison charts
    • REALLY great content can help establish you as a Trusted Authority in your market place!
  • Why You Need To Become The Trusted Authority In Your Market
    • You don’t have to compete on price
    • You don’t struggle to get people to listen to you
    • Your market places trust in you
    • They’re eager to do business with you
    • You’re the obvious choice
  • How To Get Started Creating Good Content Start off by asking yourself 2 questions:
    • What are the 10 most frequently asked questions you receive from your customers?
    • What are the 10 questions you wished customers would ask you?
    • This gives you the foundation of a buyers guide, free report or the subject for 20 articles on a blog
  • Where Do You Put Your Content? 97% of consumers go searching online… = )
    • Offer free reports or buyer’s guides on your website
    • Post articles to your blog or various article directories

  • Your Website Is Your Marketing Hub
