Description
Content

Content marketing is the topic of various books, blogs, and courses. Still, many get it wrong. Content marketing is not only about getting the right words out there and pulling the right strings. It is all about building trust, relationship, and something that we call: “like me moment”. What’s good content worth if it doesn’t engage with the right people? Our book will help business professionals create a content marketing plan that talks directly to their ideal clients and helps the organisation reap financial benefits while improving its reputation.
