Setting up your company blog is a powerful first step to successful content marketing — but it’s not enough on its own. If you rely only on your blog, you limit who you engage with, creating huge missed opportunities.
“I know what you did in your last Marketing campaign, do you?”
Setting up your company blog is a powerful first step to successful content marketing — but it’s not enough on its own.
Your Blog is Just the Foundation
Think of your content marketing strategy as a hot fudge sundae. Your blog is the scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s the foundation of the sundae, without it, you can’t make a sundae at all!
But all on its own, it doesn’t make for a very magnificent dessert.
47% of B2B buyers consume 3-5 pieces of content before engaging with a salesperson, making your blog essential for content marketing success.
Content is a significant part of most marketing strategies, with content marketing leaders seeing 7.8x more traffic in today’s digital marketplace.
But while a blog can educate, entertain, and inform an audience, it’s not the only media your content strategy should be focusing on. In fact, it’s just the starting point – that’s why 64% of marketers are now moving towards video and more than half of companies are considering engagement-first solutions like interactive marketing.
However, if you rely only on your blog, you limit who you engage with, creating huge missed opportunities. In this infographic by Main Path, discover the reasons why your blog isn’t enough.
Thanks for sharing!
It’s like a book. Its foundation is the cover of the book and its blog is tye information or details or content of the book.
Great post! Thanks for sharing! Keep us upadate.
Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
We did not hear anything about the load time of the pages and also the images are quite optimized to load fast. But since it is a larger image a weak internet line could still cause issues on loading time. Infographics have an oversize and might be not easy to load and displayed on various devices or systems, sorry for hearing you have problems
Love the info graphic! How do you make them?
I use Adobe Photoshop, but I hear you nearly can use any App which allows you this size of documents. It says in couple of forums that Infographics shall be min twice long as wide, good format for example is 600px wide by 1200px high
