Convince & Convert: 6 Steps To A Solid Content Marketing Plan 

Hosted by Stephen Bateman DipM, Founder, Concentric Dots Content Marketing, Exeter

Google is doing everything it can to push remarkable content to the top of search engine performance results.

Hence, if you want your company, product or service to appear at the top of Google, you need to start publish some content, and not any old content: compelling well researched content that’s going to engage your audiences.

But that’s not easy. According to a survey released in March 2013 by CMI and DMA UK, creating fresh quality content is the biggest marketing challenge facing the majority of UK businesses today.

Deciding what to publish, how to publish it, for whom, in what format, when and how to sustain the publishing activity are the skills your business needs to learn.

Stephen Bateman of strategic marketing consultancy Concentric Dots will take you through 6 Steps To A Solid Content Marketing Plan, referencing a tried and tested framework that pulls together 6 cohesive marketing and publishing disciplines:

1. Know your audience
2. Audit your content
3. Map your content to your buyer
4. Create your editorial calendar
5. Promote your content
6. Measure your performance
