Educating Your Prospects With Content: They Ask, You Answer

By: Ramesh Ranjan


I’ll finally get the chance to meet up with one of my marketing heroes, Marcus Sheridan (for the first time) at HubSpot’s Inbound 2014 Conference in Boston in September - and it’ll be a treat. Periodically, I’ll exchange emails with him, usually regarding something he’s blogged about.


I had an email exchange with Marcus a couple days ago and it prompted me to give a listen to one of Marcus’ old talks - on being transparent to your prospective customers with your content.


It’s really something that isn’t done. Content marketing is generally poorly done or not done at all. Personally, I’m starting to use the term “content marketing” less and less (forgive me when I use it later in this post) in favour of “education”. Because that’s what this is all about - educating your website visitors and your prospects about what you do and what you offer. This brings them closer to your brand and starts a positive relationship.


This is how it all works - but what I’ll talk about in this blog post is the importance of being honest and transparent in your content (blog posts, e-books, videos) - so that your prospects will be more comfortable doing business with you. Believe me - this is a post that you have to read because it’s vitally important to building your web presence online!
