It's important to keep in mind your audience and how the ideal prospect likes to consume content.  Scientists or engineers for example my consume or respect different media than consumers of clothing or electronics.

There can never be enough tips on how to get started on a content marketing strategy. This list is particularly helpful beause it's focused on identifying goals and figuring out which content meets those goals, which is a primary tenet of the #leancontent methodology.

3 Reasons Why Communities Help Professionals Learn | Scoop.it Blog

3 Reasons Why Communities Help Professionals Learn | Scoop.it Blog | Social Media, Education, MOOCs, Technology | Scoop.it
Kirsten Naughton's insight:

The self-employed life can be a little lonely sometimes. The more work you put into your business, the less it seems you can relate to anyone else. It’s not that you’re actively pushing friends and family away; it’s just they can’t understand your specific issues.

Even worse, you start to live in a bubble that eventually won’t pop. You start to think you’ve got everything down pat and there’s no room to grow. This is how businesses get stuck in ruts and start to decline. Once this pattern is set, it’s tough to crack it.

That’s why it’s vital you involve yourself in a business community as soon as possible. Not only will it help you break out of your comfort zone, but meeting other business professionals can help your learn new ways to do things.
