Content marketing strategies in 60 seconds:

Blogging
The “cornerstone of content marketing” is also the best place to start for most companies.

Newsletters
Email newsletters are more than just a delivery system; they can also provide you with another channel for generating new content.

Podcasting
Different people consume content in different ways, and podcasts can be an easy way to add some variety to your content strategies.

Videos
You don’t need to be Martin Scorsese to create videos that will help take your content efforts to the next level.

Microblogging
Can a tweet really be considered “content”? Sure — if you have a well-thought-out microblogging strategy!

eBooks
Quality eBooks not only add credibility to your site, but they’re also a great vehicle for adding new subscribers – and potential customers.

Case Studies
You don’t need 200 pages anymore to tell a compelling story, but that doesn’t mean case studies have gone the way of the dinosaur.

Testimonials
Do folks have something nice to say about your company? Turn it into content and get the most value out of that positive feedback.

E-Learning Series
Some topics deserve more than just a simple post. Dig deeper with a running series, and keep your readers coming back for more.

Webinar
Companies that put on live and on-demand web presentations can create a whole new level of customer engagement.

Vlogs
Think about it for a second, and it’s not hard to figure out what vlogging is all about. But how do you use it?

Photo Sharing
If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many new customers does that equal to?

Facebook
The most popular social media platform is also a hotbed for content marketing. But be careful – in the world of content, not all social media works the same way.
