In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I’m going to be talking about the final part of a three-part solo show Marketing Hourglass series I’m doing. In part one, I talked about the customer journey and the marketing hourglass. In part two, I discussed creating content that powers each stage of the customer journey. Then in part three, I’m wrapping up the series with what I’m calling a content planning workshop. Here’s part three.
Waking up on Monday and deciding what to write about on your blog is not a content strategy. Content is such an essential element in the marketing puzzle you must plan your content like you might your promotional calendar or budget for the year.
Taking a strategic view of content means you must understand the body of work you need to create over time to turn your content efforts into an asset that will serve your business long-term. In this episode, I’m wrapping up the Marketing Hourglass series with a content planning workshop. I’m covering how to plan your content the right way to align with business goals, objectives, and the customer journey.
