Content marketing is a staggeringly large industry, projected to be worth roughly $413 billion by 2021. One reason for its growth, particularly in the B2B space, is that it’s cheaper to create and deploy than paid advertising.
This has led to a proliferation of content of all types and styles across every platform, device, and digitally propelled experience that consumers engage with.
In an environment that’s hyper-saturated with information, it’s not enough to create static content. These days, businesses need to take their assets to the next level so that it stands out.
That means your content must be engaging, interactive, personalized, and relevant. This can be difficult to make your asset stand out given the sheer proliferation of high-quality content available across multiple digital platforms.
In fact, a 2019 CMI study found that the biggest challenge to marketers was not producing engaging content, but in how to keep up with the changing search landscape.
In 2010, the year the CMI released their first benchmarks report, 36% of respondents listed producing engaging content as a key challenge. In 2019, 61% of marketers indicated their biggest challenge was changes to SEO/search algorithms followed by changes to social media algorithms at 45%.
It’s clear that the bar has been raised when it comes to content which puts more pressure on businesses to create unique, engaging, and interactive assets that help them stand out from their competitors.
To address this industry need, Ceros, a cloud-based platform that allows designers and marketers to create interactive assets without the need for code, published a guide that’s focused on improving digital experience through better content.
The guide lists eight approaches to creating effective content aimed at improving customer experience and engagement.
