Let us understand it better with an example. The much hyped paid advertisements that were a rage sometime back even now for some people are not preferred by customers of today who think of them more for their nuisance value than for some serious source of information.

Where does this ultimately lead to Should the digital marketers change their tactics The answer is an emphatic yes for instead of putting all the marketing eggs in a single basket of ‘paid advertisements’ it is high time the balance is tilted in favour of content marketing. Does the term ring a bell Let’s fnd out. Content Marketing To begin with content marketing is a technique to generate user interest about a business brand product or service by developing and marketing content through various media channels including the social media Facebook Twitter Instagram etc and content management systems WordPress Drupal etc. This is done with a singular objective of driving the maximum user trafic towards the sales funnel. And yes the content so developed and distributed across multiple channels to seek users’ attention should be presented in an entertaining engaging and interactive way. This approach is much needed for a content to rise above the clutter that abounds on the internet.

The other reasons why content marketing has become the go to area for marketers are as follows:  Users prefer reading an engaging high quality content to get specifc pieces of information.

What constitutes Content Marketing Even though in popular perception the content marketing services inb211clude writeups like blogs articles ebooks and white papers interspersed with images animations and videos there are a slew of tools like emails infographics classifeds slideshare quizzes live streaming podcasts gamifcation presenting content in the form of a game and explainer videos that can be even more efective. With the popularity of content marketing soaring businesses are creating contents in droves giving rise to a deluge that spans practically every domain. So far so good but what happens when as a content marketer you are asked to create or edit multiple contents on a single topic for diferent devices sites applications and platforms that too on a large scale Chances are you will fnd it all too overwhelming. Is there a way out then Yes in the form of structured content. Let’s frst understand how an unstructured content can lead to the abandonment of content by the users. For example if an unstructured content created for a PC/laptop is viewed on a mobile then no matter how responsive your website is for mobile viewing the content shall not always be displayed similarly.

You might be at your wit’s end understanding that even after making the site mobile responsive the results do not quite conform to the plan. So what has gone wrong here As mentioned above it is in producing an unstructured content that is not adaptive to the demands of SEO or multiple edits. So invest your time in creating a structured content yes the one in a modular format that can be classifed with metadata tags for easy distribution to multiple channels from a single source. In other words given the multiplicity of devices platforms delivery channels and applications the focus should be on creating a structured content that gets displayed on any type of device with proper layouts no matter which mode text or voice the end customer uses to seek information. How can a structured content be of help  It can address the concerns of developing a single personalised content for diferent segments platforms devices and applications.
