Fast-Track Your 
Content Marketing Plan
Most companies don’t have 
a content marketing plan. 
Most companies don’t succeed 
with content marketing. 
You can connect the dots.
Here’s a solid plan for creating a solid 
content marketing PLAN. 
? Sounds like a 
good plan, doesn’t it
The idea is to 
document a strategy. 
The planning shall hereby commence.
Establish your main objective. 
The objective of our content marketing 
plan is to 
generate leads 
establish greater authority 
build community 
increase retention 
Select ONE as your main objective. 
Add secondary objectives if you plan to measure them. 
(Your objectives can differ from the examples listed.) 
. 
1
Define a metric for your objective. 
Lead = 
an email opt-in. 
Authority = X 
Community = Y 
Retention = Z 
. 
Adjust per your needs and analytics capabilities. 
Align each of your objectives to at least one metric.
Document how you’ll keep score. 
We will measure 
objective, with metric 
and record it with 
tool 
every 
time interval 
. 
For example: 
We will measure leads, with opt-ins, 
and record them with Campaign Monitor reports 
every week. 
Create a list of: 
• Top objectives 
• Reporting tactics 
• Intervals
The plan is beginning to take shape. 
Next up... 
target market personas.
2 Create personas.
Fill in the blanks. 
Create a fictional customer. 
Name 
Job/role 
Most pressing needs 
Responsibilities 
Pains, pleasures 
Role in decision 
Influences 
Media 
but realistic > 
*Add and subtract fields as needed. **B2B and B2C personas will differ. 
***Create multiple personas as needed.
STORY? What’s your 
We’ll document this now.
Establish your 
unique value 
proposition 
Why do people do business with you? 
The answer is probably not the thing you sell. 
Delve into the who, what, when, where and why 
and uncover something magical... 
An emotion. 
3
Unique value proposition 
A fictitious example... 
SayHeyPayDay puts employers’ 
minds at ease knowing they 
don’t have to fuss with the 
tedious task of issuing paychecks. 
Document your value proposition now. 
Note the emotional appeals above.
4 Establish your 
content marketing 
mission 
1. Articulate your approach to the content and industry 
2. Clearly define whom the content is for 
3. State how the content will satisfy the needs of those that consume it 
(Mission statement definition by Joe Pulizzi of Content Marketing Institute)
Content marketing mission 
A fictitious example... 
SayHeyPayDay publishes a blog 
and information resources for 
employers of 5 - 5,000 people to 
teach them ways to create a happier 
and more productive workplace. 
Document your content marketing mission. 
Did you cover Joe’s 1, 2, & 3?
You nailed your story. 
Why you matter 
and why your 
content 
will too. 
Write it all down in your fast-evolving plan.
Examine your sales funnel. 
The top... 
At the top of your sales funnel a stranger discovers your company. 
You’ve achieved awareness.
Examine your sales funnel. 
The middle... 
In the middle of your sales funnel a prospect 
demonstrates interest. He or she is doing research. 
You are challenged to help them with evaluation.
Examine your sales funnel. 
The bottom... 
At the bottom of your sales funnel you are 
attempting to drive action. 
Your content should inspire a purchase.
Here’s an example. 
Content types at three levels.
Another example. 
Content types at three levels. 
Source: http://spinsucks.com/communication/plan-your-content/
Create a matrix. 
Content types at all three levels. 
Awareness Evaluation Purchase 
Plug in content types. What do you have? What do you need? 
Make a buying cycle matrix to cover all the bases. Think big. 
It’s useful to create a matrix per each customer persona. 
5
You defined potential customers. 
You decided why people do business with you. 
You stated your content’s purpose. 
You listed your content production needs. 
Now it’s time to satisfy them.
Consider your options. 
Popular content formats. 
• Blogs 
• Newsletters 
• Social media 
• Events (online and off) 
• Case studies 
• Videos 
• Podcasts 
• eBooks and white papers 
• Presentations

Now you should plan for 
distribution. 
You want 
to amplify 
your reach.
“Content is fire. 
Social media is gasoline.” 
~ Jay Baer, Convince and Convert
Consider your resources 
(and of course, your audience) 
and make smart distribution choices. 
• Social media networks 
• Advocacy programs 
• Email 
• Search 
• Paid search 
• Advertising 
• Sponsored content (on blogs and social networks) 
• Guest posts 
• PR 
7
Map your promotional strategies. 
~ Examples ~ 
We’ll promote our blog via 
(Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+). 
We’ll promote our webinars via our 
(eNewsletter and PPC ads.) 
Again, adjust to your needs. 
Your plan is getting progressively powerful.
Measure what matters. 
The objectives you’ve documented inform 
the metrics you’ll use. 
Make a short list of the most meaningful metrics 
that indicate your progress and create a 
simple dashboard for tracking them. 
8

PLAN. content marketing Accomplished marketers understand the content marketing plan 
is the foundation of a successful content marketing program.
