Benefits Of Content Marketing: What You Need To Know
Over the course of past few years, content marketing has been the primary go-to solution for many companies around the world. It guarantees cost-effective marketing strategies, all the while generating greater ROI compared to its counterparts. Which is why in recent times many digital marketing agencies have made the most of content marketing for their clients. However, what exactly makes content marketing so great? Even though the common content approach is 20/80, meaning 80% of the efforts cause 20% of the yields. One of the main reason being its cost-effectiveness, along with its immaculate capabilities to engage the audience, and encourage them into endorsing a brand or service. Without wasting any time, let us discuss the benefits of content marketing. Visibility and Recognition Many business owners struggle with creating an enduring online presence. However, one of the major benefits of content marketing is it provides companies with wide exposure on the internet. In other words, content marketing is the art of providing you visibility with the use of compelling content. Digital marketing agencies use the content to create a Wikipedia page, or your brand’s Facebook profile. Another perquisite of content marketing is building your brand’s recognition through multiple platforms. Your website can be interactive, and feedback centric. While social media content requires you to provide more personal touch in your content. Conversely, the primary goal of content marketing is creating your recognition with content that becomes synonymous with you. Customer Interaction And Relation Perhaps the most lucrative part of interactive content marketing is garnering valuable feedback. It enables companies to improve customer interaction, as well as cultivate their loyalty. By simply improving your service through feedback, and keeping your clientele updated with any changes or modifications in services or product. Conclusion Considering the attention span time of humans has now decreased to 8 seconds, engaging your readers through appealing content has now become even more challenging. Another stat suggests over 65% of content marketers struggle with creating fresh content. According to research, it is the content on a website that turns leads into customers if the content keeps them engaged long enough. The benefits of content marketing are countless, which is why it has skyrocketed in recent years. However, it is essential to understand the tone of content required for different mediums. Websites require professional and formal tone, in order to deliver promotional content that engages readers.
4 Modern Gonzo Journalists To Follow
Although it's largely contested, Gonzo Journalism is still alive and well today. The birth of Gonzo came when Hunter S. Thompson attended the Kentucky Derby in 1970 and described the experience of being there, rather than a simple recap of the race itself. Since then, Gonzo or "Immersive" journalism has become one of the most highly duplicated and revered styles of writing. More and more people have taken to writing blogs about their experiences, and even have forayed into video. I subscribe to the Gonzo journalism ethos, and have tried to create my own style of writing as well. I have a long way to go as a writer, but it's nice to know I'm in good company. Here are 5 modern Gonzo journalists you should follow today. 1. Matt Taibbi This Rolling Stone contributor followed in Hunter's footsteps taking on politics and other newsworthy subjects. He's probably the most "traditional" contributor on this list. One of my favorite lines of his describes Goldman Sachs as, "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money." Twitter: @mtaibbi 2. Vice This isn't really one journalist, but an outlet. As much controversy they conjure up, Vice has become an integral part of millennial media, and has given us a unique look into the realities of different societies and people around the world and at home. They even have their own TV network now. Twitter: @Vice 3. Shane Smith The CEO of Vice Media is an interesting character, who uses his journalistic prowess to engage in a greater dialogue about society and digital media in general. His video contributions to Vice's HBO show have taken him all over the world, even to places like North Korea. Twitter: @ShaneSmith30 4. I'm going to cop out and just link myself. Most of my work on here is immersive, but my favorite stuff is in my "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 2016" collection. I've been trying to work a bit harder on the fundamentals of writing, as like most Gonzo journalists, I value style and wit over a lot of the traditional aspects. When I was in school, a journalism professor turned me on to the work of Hunter S. Thompson, and likened me to him. I guess that's what led me here. Anyway, you can check out my writing here, or by viewing my personal blog here. In addition to my contributions on Vingle, @Patmanmeow is also doing his part to further the traditions of Gonzo. Check out his work as well. I actually was featured on GonzoToday, which is run by a lot of Hunter S. Thompson's friends and colleagues. You can read that piece here. Twitter: @TessStevens
Why I Started a Love Journal
I'm single. I've had boyfriends before; I've been on dates recently. By no means do I feel that I'm in a relationship slump, but I decided to start what I have dubbed my love journal anyways. Why? Because I want to be better at relationships. I've come to realize recently that a big part of why some of my past relationships didn't work out had nothing to do with whether or not we were right for each other. It was more about whether or not we were ready to treat each other right. The distinction might be a little weird, but whatever, it's how I feel. I dumped a guy that was sweet (and is now engaged...to someone else!) because he didn't understand that I didn't want to be treated nicely all the time simply because I had been through a bad relationship before. I was dumped once because I wasn't into the romantic gestures that my boyfriend would spend time putting together. I'd only be able to give a simple smile back, and it was clear that our romance styles just didn't match each other. So what does this have to do with me starting a love journal? Basically, when I find something that annoys me in relationships, or that I find hard to deal with in relationships, or when someone tells me they find annoying about how I act in relationships, I want to write it down. I want to write and down and then write about it: I want to find what makes me tick and what I do that ticks others off. I want to figure out why. Is it really that I don't like big romantic gestures, or is it that I don't like what's-his-name that put one on for me before, and they remind me of him? Discovering more about your romance and relationship style is really important. You have to know yourself in and out to be able to fully share yourself with another person, and I think that love journaling (as funny as it may sound) may help me get to that point. Whether you're in a relationship or not, you can learn something about love and about what it means to you. So go ahead. Start your love journal. See if it helps you see anything more about love!
