2011 Trends: Content Marketing Is Critical

Next year, marketers will need to rethink their approach to advertising and marketing and intensify their focus on creating magnetic content that will naturally attract consumers, rather than relying solely on the interruption model of advertising, which consumers are responding to less and less. Think pull vs. push.

Magnetic content can include anything created on behalf of a brand—be it an ad, YouTube video, online game, Facebook page, Twitter promo or mobile app—that consumers genuinely want to engage with and pass along to others. This content entertains, amuses, informs, serves a function or satisfies a consumer need. It’s welcome instead of annoying or interruptive.

Marketers, especially those working in social media, have seen the proven value of branded content, sometimes also referred to as “earned media.” Nearly three-quarters of US companies with a social media strategy used such content in their campaigns, making it the most common type of content used, according to a June 2010 study by King Fish Media, HubSpot and Junta42.

This post is a sneak peak at the exclusive new data from the upcoming Science of Lead Generation webinar on October 12th. Register now to reserve your spot. Remember, it’s more important how much business your site generates, than what it looks like.

One of the most important elements of lead generation is creating compelling offers to entice people to give you their contact information.

To understand what offers users perceive to be the most valuable, I conducted a survey asking people to rank a handful of offer types.

The results show that people prefer content-based offers rather than “demo” type offers which imply a more sales-oriented process. If you want leads, try offering a downloadable kit, or a free trial of your product.

Inbound Marketing: lo mejor es que te encuentren

El inbound marketing ya no es un concepto nuevo, aunque quizás sí poco conocido en nuestro mercado. El término fue acuñado por la compañía Hubspot, especializada en marketing en internet, y se ha convertido en un término genérico en los mercados de habla inglesa que podríamos traducir como marketing de entradas.

Existe el inbound marketing desde que existen usuarios en la red. Sin embargo, el mundo 2.0 ha propiciado, sin duda, esta tendencia que nos permite estar dónde nuestros clientes potenciales buscan información, soluciones, etc., y en consecuencia dar con nosotros.

Lejos de interrumpir a nuestro target a través de las tradicionales herramientas outbound, como la recepción de una llamada desde un centro de telemarketing cuando estás apunto de entrar en el cine, el inbound es aquel marketing que consigue ser encontrado por los usuarios, permitiéndoles que lleguen a nosotros, a nuestro producto, en definitiva, hasta nuestra web cuando ellos lo desean.
