Content in the future of marketing is intended to elevate the brand and effectively motivate customers to move to their next stage of lifecycle FASTER than they would their own.
Forrester Research says that customers are into 90% of their buying journey before they contact a vendor. This means that BEFORE the customer makes the initial contact, the sales department would need to depend on marketing to engineer the customers’ journey, to entice, guide and provide the necessary information to steer them to a decision.
The first contact with your customers may be a visual one. Creative visual artists and videographers can help you stand out visually. However, apart from the aesthetics, you need some "meat" in your content so you need writers to share knowledge about your business in your social posts, emails and blogs.
The Future Of Marketing
The Future of Marketing is where marketing (visual teams included) and communications teams come together to create a content-driven ecosystem that will elevate the brand and effectively motivate customers to move to their next stage of lifecycle FASTER than they would their own.
Basically, modern marketing in our times is multi-faceted and cannot stand alone. All your departments have to work together to convey a consistent brand message.
