The Beauty of Content Marketing
From making people beautiful inside and out as a beauty therapist, to working as a Community Management Administrator, who would have thought!
Take it from me, these are two different industries, so much so that one may think it is impossible to move from one to the other but I made it and I love it. Yes, they are different but are they really? Let’s take a look…
Working as a beauty therapist was amazing. By making people feel good about themselves inside and out, I had to be creative.
As a Community Management Administrator, I’m online daily and need to come up with fresh creative content ideas for social media. Do you see the resemblance yet? Unlike beauty therapy, Content Marketing is a lot more challenging! Content Marketing is a lot like storytelling, humans have told stories for as long as they could speak, it’s just the method that has changed! Our attention will always go to those who tell great stories!
What is Content Media?
If 10 Content Marketing experts were asked to define their field you might receive 10 unique definitions, but they will all likely point back to the same core concept. Content Marketing is a marketing strategy that revolves around the creation, publication and distribution of content to a target audience in order to bring new traffic (and therefore new customers) to such business. Content is something that is to be expressed through a medium, as speech, writing or any of various arts forms that can be delivered via many different media including the Internet, Cinema, Television, Smartphones, Audio, CD’s, Books, E-Books, Magazines and last but not least, Social Media, namely Twitter, Facebook and Instagram among other platforms.
