To fit with our new site, we've updated this post and created an even more comprehensive content marketing resource:
Download our Content Marketing Strategy eBook today to learn why Content is your best marketing tool in modern digital marketing.
On Tuesday 20th November we attended the first Content Marketing Show in London, a new offshoot of BrightonSEO. As you can probably guess, it was a day dedicated to content marketing in all shapes and sizes, with a diverse line-up of speakers giving insight into how to source, create and promote your business using content.
We decided that instead of the usual conference round-up post, we would compile the best advice from the day into a complete guide to content marketing. We've also added our own insight based on our experiences at Silicon Beach as well advice from top industry experts. Hopefully this will serve as a one-stop resource to learn about content marketing - but don't forget that we do run regular content marketing workshops in Brighton! We also touch on content marketing from an SEO perspective on our SEO courses if you want to learn more about how content works as part of a wider marketing strategy.
We've picked our top 16 points, but if you feel we've missed anything then please let us know in the comments or tweet us @sbttraining and we'll be happy to add it in.
Hopefully this guide will give you some inspiration to start creating fantastic content for the web.
Remember: tell stories, draw an emotional response, you are influential, you can't force viral, be bold, be different, be nice, know your audience and yourself, use the tools you've been given, use data, get your briefs and pitches right, get content flowing and if in doubt, steal from the best.
