How Does Content Marketing Attract More Clients

If you own a business, whether it is a startup or a big company, you always are thinking of ways to promote your products or services. This is the main reason why creating websites or social media pages are popular these days. More and more people are getting hooked with how the cyber world works wonders and the ability it allows to reach a further audience and potential customers or clients.

If you own a website or a social media page, the next thing that you will think about is how to drive traffic to it and get people interested in spending time there. Just like how do you do it offline with a store or a shop in a local area, well online business is the same method though you have to reach out to your target market and lead them into clicking your URL for your website or social media page.... but how do you do that?

Article Submission Sites

With the advent of many credible article submission sites and social media groups on the web will attract entrepreneurs who are seeking opportunities open for them to speak out and pique the interests of their potential clients by voicing their pitch in the eyes of those niche' areas.

And how do you go about this?

1. You have to create good content and consistent content too. What does this mean? For example, you are a printing company who caters to business people and professionals. You could offer postcards, business cards, brochures, newsletters and the likes. When you write the articles, you will not only think about ways to design your postcards, detailing step by step benefits, tips and also traps that the notice would like to know about how to avoid a mistake then you will go and direct the material to your target market by strategically finding niche areas or sites that could be looking to obtain this free knowledge. You can write an article about ways to design your postcards to help your food business for an even more specific targeting of a niche and then focus on sites and social media groups that support food business and companies that would greatly benefit from this information .......FOR FREE.

This way, you already are capturing a niche market by thinking outside the box to what your competitors may not be doing. These people will be interested in the products that you are offering and will be more likely to have confidence if your products or service as you have provided effective information that could help them. They will be more interested when they get a good visual or view on how they would be able to utilize such tools and implement it with some logic and practical insights and not just a wishy-washy spiel. And the perfect avenue for you to do so is through good quality content that is functional and makes you available for these people who could be looking for this service.

Take time to fill out your Resource Box

2. When you submit articles to directories or social media platforms, they allow you a space to have your author's biography or to direct credit to your website or the business social page. No, this doesn't mean that you have to brag that you are a good looking, 40 something, with bank savings. You are not looking for a partner. You are looking for clients so branding yourself as the business of knowledge in your space and build authority.

To do this right, include your name, your website address, a tagline or your business' unique selling proposition and a call to action for your readers. This is the venue where you will promote your own stuff and lure them to click on your link or opt-in page.

Now, do you understand why it is important to create quality content for the purposes of content marketing? People must trust that you can deliver what you have promised and can assist them with their needs. They don't know you. But in establishing your name as an expert in the field where they need help, they will learn to appreciate you and may later become interested as to what you are offering them over time. You cannot achieve that with crappy articles and just the one off post that is good. It takes several times for a client to see your content, brand or company before they will want to do business with you and then you still need to have a call to action or in normal terms ask for their business by offering something such as a discount or special promo.

If you don't have the knack for it, you can always hire a freelancer or contractor to do the job for you. This way, you won't  have to provide the content marketing articles to submission sites while you reap the benefits of such over time and can focus on growing the businesses in other areas.
