Stage 1: Reach

Speaking  of content marketing strategy, this is the phase where you can easily put up most of the blog posts, online videos, eBooks, and white papers. As a matter of fact, you can even reuse a successful piece that you have previously published, but remember that you have to keep it always fresh and not canned.


Stage 2: Nurture

In case you are wondering where you can put the brand campaigns, offers, corporate campaigns, and other brand focused content, this is the phase you have been looking for. And since nurture is the key, you have to learn how to position for success. All you need is to think less on the marketing, and more on the value.

Stage 3: Acquire

If you put yourself in your customer’s shoes, you will learn that you need to gain your client’s trust. Their reviews and suggestions are considered as your lifeblood in creating more valuable and effective content marketing. Brand stories, reviews, and other similar pieces should be your motivation in creating excellent content.


How Do You Build Your Strategy?

  1. Listen. You have to learn how to listen to your customers’ reviews, recommendations, and even complaints. Otherwise, you will never know in which area you need to improve on. Before you create great content, find out what your audience needs and learn how to meet them half way.

  2. Educate and Inspire. These two go together. Educating your customers is your ultimate goal so they too can be successful. Inspire your clients on how they can gain financial independence.

 Keep in mind that anyone can be your potential customer so, make your content explode in social media.
