I selected this piece was written by Chris Sietsema for convinceandconvert blog because the post plus the infographic lays out a very clear and concise plan to create your content marketing strategy.
**Whether you're creating or curating content, this is something I think is very useful. This is why I rescooped this from my content marketing, social media and beyond topic.
Here are a few highlights from the article:
He compares selecting and producing content to what he calls "bricks" and "feathers".
Bricks are referred to as research reports
**are larger content productions such as research reports, events, white papers .
video series, mobile apps, etc
**have the potential to make a larger splash when executed and promoted correctly.
Feathers are comprised of simple text and photo content published via popular social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, etc.
**Less intensive than bricks from a production budget standpoint, feathers are created consistently to maintain an ongoing stream of communication between a brand and its audience.
The infographic shows you how to discern what content to use and illustrates the how, what, why and when to use it.
