ORANGE COPY AND CONTENT DEPARTMENT (OCCD)
In 1984, a person saw an average 2,000 promotional messages a day, by 2014, it increased to 5,000. Today your prospects are battling for their sanity by consciously and aggressively filtering out promotional messages. Why not try a more subtle approach?
The case for content marketing
Relatively new in Nigeria, content marketing which is a covert promotional strategy is a marketing technique of creating and distributing valuable, relevant and consistent content to attract and acquire a clearly defined audience which in turn drives profitable action.
Research shows that businesses with blogs get 126% more lead growth than businesses without blogs this is because an estimated 77% of internet users read blogs. Also content marketing rakes in conversion rates six times higher than other methods, it is affordable to deploy and content creation is an effective SEO technique. Again, websites with updated blog content have 434% more search engine-indexed pages than those that don’t publish and businesses publishing 16-plus posts a month get almost 3.5 times more traffic than businesses publishing zero to four articles monthly.
