  3. The needs and demands of your audience
  4. The time and attention span of your audience

And other things like these.

  1. Pick a few techniques and work on them well

Once you are done with researching your audience, you have to move on to the actual marketing process itself. But right before you do that, follow this tip of ours.

In content marketing, there is a whole bunch of different techniques and methods that you can use. For example, you can publish blogs and other site-based content. You can also create and share info graphics or showcase your reviews/testimonials, etc.

There is a lot of stuff involved in it, and it can look somewhat easy to tackle them all.

But it’s not.

Instead of dispersing and spreading your efforts over multiple different techniques and thus watering them down, you should focus on a couple of them that you know you can pull off.

You can decide this by understanding your marketing team’s strengths and resources. For example, if you have a lot of copywriters on your team, you can utilize that and create awesome website content and catchy emails, etc. On the other hand, if you have some talented graphic designers on hand, you can go with infographics instead.

You get the idea.

  1. Don’t ditto-copy other people

Instead, you should study what they’ve done and look for loose ends. You should look at the things they’ve missed. Then, you should put your focus on those and give your audience something better than what your competitor is doing.

This tip holds particular application for green and rookie marketers. While you should critically analyze your competitors to see what they do to make their efforts work, you should also capitalize on the stuff they lack.
