Do you often wake up in the middle of the night saying to yourself that it’s not worth the time and effort. We all do.
Blogs take time to write, those great images need to be found or created and those social networks meed to be managed and nurtured. It is often not done or persisted with because there are no apparent quick rewards. This is where the tortoise can beat the hare by slowly persisting. It is a marathon and a journey not a sprint.
One way of thinking about great content marketing is that you are building an audience before you need them. Content builds credibility, trust and followers over time. This earns you the right to then sell them something down the track.
When content marketing and social media emerged there were no tools. Today we have so many technology tools that it’s overwhelming.
But what is great with marketing tools is that you can scale your efforts. It was something I realized with Twitter early on. A few years ago I implemented one software platform that saved me 120 hours a month and it still does.
So what are some content marketing mistakes that many amateurs new to the game are making.
