A content marketing strategy (not to be confused with a content strategy) analyses the different ways content marketing can be used across the buyer’s journey, the customer life cycle and/or the different customer experience touchpoints but it goes beyond that. Essentially a content marketing strategy explores how content marketing can be used in a strategic way as such and for and with other marketing, customer and sales strategies. A strong strategy needs to map to what the audience is looking for no matter where they are in the sales funnel.
They’re spending more time researching before they reach out to buy, and brands can provide the answers they need through content. Informative content like blogs and infographics do wonders for early-stage brand awareness.

Providing these resources sets brands apart from the competition.

Google aims to match the highest quality, most relevant information with the search queries of their users ─ but if you’re creating content sharing this information, you have every chance of ranking and being found for it.
