Content marketing is something you hear about in every major trade journal and articles on the web talking about how you can help your business grow. However, if you’re running a small operation you might not think you have the money or ability to get involved in content marketing in a way that generates real business for you. The truth is that this type of marketing can help you grow and expand even if you’re a single person operation working with a very small budget.

Use these tips to help you understand how you can get content marketing to work for you:

  • Decide what market you want to reach. If you’re trying to reach people to use your service or buy your product you need to decide which platform is best for you and what type of message you’ll be sending. In many cases, posts that aren’t even directly related to your product can be helpful. For example, a company that sells cleaning services may not need to post only about cleaning, but how to organize a home.
  • Make sure you post content on a regular basis for your customers to see. You can post once per day or you can post only on Monday or Friday, but making sure your routine is steady is very important for effective marketing online, especially if you’re relying mostly on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to connect with customers.
  • Always let readers know about your services at the end of each post. You don’t have to sell to them, but provide a link to your company where it is visible and appropriate.
