Content Marketing’s basic premise is to provide valuable information or entertainment – “content” – that stops short of a direct sales pitch or call to action, but which seeks to positively influence a customer in some way.

Content selling goes by such a large amount of names... custom publication, custom media, branded media, branded content, attraction selling. Content selling will take numerous forms. It may be a video, an article, or a diary post. no matter your alternative of name for this kind of selling, boils all the way down to one major purpose. If you are not content selling, you are not selling.

Content marketing is a marketing technique of creating and distributing relevant and valuable content to attract, acquire, and engage a clearly defined and understood target audience – with the objective of driving profitable customer action. Basically, content marketing is the art of communicating with your customers and prospects without selling. It is non-interruption marketing.
