Now, why content marketing? What’s the big deal? Content marketing is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and promoting valuable, relevant content consistently to attract and retain a clearly defined audience, who will ultimately become customers.

With all the different content marketing definitions and strategies, it can become confusing and hard to know what content marketing is actually for: driving sales. Yes, the definition above is a bit wordy (and needs some serious grammar help), however it gets to the heart of what content marketing needs to be.

Too often the definition of content marketing goes something like this: “”Content marketing is the process of creating high-quality, valuable content to attract, inform, and engage an audience, while also promoting your brand.””
