Content marketing can be a confusing topic. It lies somewhere in between being an entertainer and being a marketer. As we move further and further into the digital age, the line between someone that creates entertaining content, and someone who is marketing to people for business purposes is starting to blur somewhat. When you think of content marketing, a lot of concepts come to mind. People who are popular on social media for personal posts can now become “influencers”, and get brand deals and merchandise, and it seems like every business is putting a ton of effort to be funny and “relatable” on social media.

Entertaining social media posts, podcasts, and entertaining articles written by brands are all examples content marketing. However, as time has gone on, and as digital media has become more and more of a part of our everyday lives, companies have started to realize that making content that people genuinely enjoy is the fast track to getting them to use your services. If people see a piece of content that they like, they naturally form a more positive opinion on the people who created it. If you read a book you enjoyed, you are likely to pick up more of the authors works, and if you watch absolutely loved a movie that you just watched you may become a fan of the director. For the same reason, it makes sense that if a business creates a piece of content that potential customers truly resonate with, people will naturally start to seek out more from that business.
