Understanding the Golden Rules of Marketing

First, build a strong foundation for your marketing strategy by understanding the three golden rules of marketing. These are: 1) Add value first, sell after; 2) Build a consistent brand identity; 3) Understand your audience. If you can achieve these three things, you are well on your way to establishing your marketing strategy!

Getting into the Minds of Your Audience

Next, get into the mind of your audience to create content that they actually want by understanding the psychology behind content that converts. Once you understand the psychology behind content, you can combine that with knowledge of the user journey in order to formulate your content strategy. This post on User Journey Mapping will help you create a content-driven lead generation strategy.
