A lot of companies have jumped onto the inevitable content marketing bandwagon – where instead of throwing offers and deals and flashy brands in the faces of customers, companies can instead create and distribute relevant content that engages the audience by educating them on the brand. The field has exploded recently, with almost every company now marketing their content not their new deals.
But even though content marketing and inbound marketing has brought a lot of companies success by helping them create a channel of information to pass along to potential customers, buyers and other companies, many aren’t seeing the numbers they’d like to online. Or for some, web traffic may be good, but it’s no longer growing. Your company is still getting Facebook likes and re-Tweets on Twitter, but the audience is at a stagnant standstill. Although most companies know how to promote their content, they aren’t able to catch the audiences they want. So, many have turned to paid social promotions to get the word across. And results have been pretty positive for those who are joining the world of paid advertising.
