Content Marketing is the process of researching, creating and publishing content aimed at your businesses target audience. The aim of this content is to bring recognition to the business whilst providing your target audience with something useful,engaging or informative. Usually this content is provided in the form of a blog post but can also be used on main site pages. This content could be made up of text, images, videos, dependant on your purpose and target goal.This content should be shared via your social media channels which will help promote your brand.
