Part One of the series on content marketing discussed how to set goals for a content marketing strategy, and explained that the goals relied largely upon the balance between desired outcome of the campaign, and exploiting the strengths and weaknesses of the content marketing theory. Now that the goals of the campaign have been established–therefore setting the parameters to which the campaign adheres–it’s time to focus on the content portion of the strategy.

At its heart: content marketing is still a marketing strategy. We know the role that strategy plays, and the role that content plays in it, but how can the two work together efficiently, when they have separate goals. The balance between content marketing and content strategy is delicate. Kristina Halvorson defines the former as the “creation, publication, and governance of useful, usable content.”

Naturally, the best results occur when the content strategy is shaped within the “approach of content marketing.” Content Gap Analysis. Why No One’s Reading Your Marketing Content. There’s been plenty written about how to create smart digital marketing content. But less attention gets paid to what happens after you click “publish” and whether your videos, infographics, social media posts, and other pieces of content are actually reaching the right people.

According to Altimeter, only a quarter of content marketers actually invest in distribution, even though more than half recognize that it’s a critical need. Having a smart distribution model is just as important as developing good content in the first place — it’s how you bring in more business. So I’ve put together a distribution strategy refresher. Here are the critical steps for getting your content where it needs to go. Optimize for search and for mobile. Design a modular but cohesive content plan. Segment your audience. Create relationships with branded publications and sites. Pay for distribution. Share with relevant communities. Reach out to influencers in your market. Live | Luci.

After the response to this recent LifeHacker piece, I thought I would explain the system I use to take notes, research books and keep track of anecdotes, stories and info I come across in my work. This isn’t the perfect system. It might not work for you. All I can say is that since learning it about 7 years ago, it has totally transformed my process and drastically increased my creative output. It’s responsible for helping me publish three books in three years, (along with other books I’ve had the privilege of contributing to), write countless articles published in newspapers and websites, send out my reading recommendations every month, and make all sorts of other work and personal successes possible.

Now to be clear, this is not “my” notecard system. If anything, I use a perverted version of a system taught to me by the genius Robert Greene, when I was his research assistant. I hope it inspires your own method. The System “Don’t be the slave of circumstance.” -Get in the habit. You are the content you publish. | Scoop.it.
