  9. 9. GOAL SETTING
  10. 10. What are your goals for your content marketing in 2017?
  11. 11. Start with your customer goal and work backward to figure out how many leads you need to convert and how many visitors you need to attract to your site. Not sure about your inbound close rate? You can start with just leads. REVERSE ENGINEERING YOUR GOAL
  12. 12. EXAMPLE: Customer goal: 5 new customers a month. About 10% of your leads become customers. Lead goal: 50 new leads per month. About 1% of your site visitors become leads. Visitor goal: 5,000 visitors per month.

  15. 15. Create content that is relevant to your audience without always being about your company.

  20. 20. You don’t add value by explaining product offerings to first-time visitors. Product pages and customer emails are typically better locations for this type of content. CONTENT FOR FIRST-TIME VISITORS
