Content Marketing Strategy: Avoid These 10 Mistakes for Big Results

Do you ever feel like you are spinning your wheels when it comes to developing and integrating your content marketing strategy and plan into your business and overall marketing initiatives, campaigns and programs to achieve your business and marketing goals?

Content marketing planned and executed properly can help you ignite not only online and social media results but also true foundational business results. You can increase sales, generate more leads, increase brand awareness, build and nurture communities, humanize your brand, and reach markets you simply couldn't reach with other mediums.

Unfortunately many brand leaders are their own worst enemies when it comes to defining and executing a well laid out content marketing plan with strategies and tactics that delivers real results. Often times they get lazy and impatient. They want immediate results and don't understand it takes time and ongoing investment.

Content marketing is not a “set it and forget it” type of initiative. You must constantly be feeding the content engine, inspiring and connecting with your audience to achieve desired objectives.

Bottom line, content marketing for business requires work. Real work. The kind of work that may even make your head hurt from time to time. It may even keep you up at night.

Could it be that you are making some basic content marketing mistakes that are holding you back from the success you deserve and expect?
