Content marketing is a way to get inbound leads coming to you. Leads typically find you via social media or Google search. They arrive at your website to consume your content. It can be a blog post, an ebook, or a video.

It’s essential to have good quality content. It will help position you as an authority. And the visitors will come back to your website for more information.

This is more efficient because you’re attracting your ideal clients to you. Keep in mind that these prospects have read your content at their own will.

By the time you get on a phone conversation with them, they are already warm. They’re aware of what your brand is about and the value you provide.

The digital space is like an infinite vacuum for content. There’s an endless demand for content. On social media, there is Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and many others. Then there’s also a demand for blogs, emails and webinar content.

You may not have the budget or time to produce that much content for your customers. That’s where content repurposing can come in to help you.

For example, if you have created a webinar that many people found useful, you can reuse that content. Take smaller snippets of video and post it on social media. Turn the data presented into an infographic. You can get the webinar transcribed and have a writer create a blog post. The possibilities of reusing content are endless.

To stay ahead of the competition, you need to be putting out engaging content consistently. It’s nearly impossible for one person to handle all the work. Not to mention that he or she may fall sick or go on holiday. Then your brand won’t be producing content for some time.

That’s why many B2C businesses, even the small ones, have a small team specializing in content creation. A team usually consists of copywriters, editors, graphic designers, and content strategists. The good news is it doesn’t have to be an in-house team.
