You might have heard traditional marketing referred to as “interruption marketing”.
You might be watching a TV programme and just as the action gets exciting the ad break kicks in – thus interrupting your enjoyment of the show. Banner adverts on websites also count as interruptions.
Content marketing is different. It’s about producing helpful stuff, possibly blogs, audios, videos, infographics and other material that people actually look for.
Both interruption marketing and content marketing aim to generate sales but the latter is a consequence of the digital world where potential customers go looking for answers.
My guest today is a content marketing champion having worked with many financial services businesses helping them to develop content marketing strategies.
Hear Richard’s advice on how to develop a content marketing strategy. Listen to how you can create customer personas, listen to their needs and then produce content that could attract them to do business with you.
That’s all right here in episode 32 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.
