Blogging Vs Content Marketing

You might be wondering about now is there a difference between blogging and content marketing, you can write a blog without any interest in ranking on search engines or selling any products or services. I started out with my own personal website just to help people improve their health, and even now Mentoring with Jeff is not a business to earn an income as much as providing high-quality content to help you. You will find very few affiliate links in my articles on this website, but I do promote a few products and services from time to time. If you are interested I have a page on my website with my best high paying affiliate programs, you will find this is my way of helping you and earning a small commission from this website.

What Is Content Marketing

I found this quote on the website Content Marketing Institute that explains very well what content marketing is.

Content marketing is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly defined audience — and, ultimately, to drive profitable customer action.

Content Marketing Institute is recommended as a good resource for bloggers, you can download their free guide E-book if you desire to and you can unsubscribe at any time. I am not receiving any commissions from this website just so you know I am sharing this only to help you.

What Is Blogging

As I shared earlier in this article you can write a blog without using content marketing, you will find many bloggers start out with no intention of using it for affiliate marketing. How I got started was as my readers grew and companies contacted me about promoting their products and services in my posts, so that is how I got started earning income online.

What Is ROI Mean

You might hear more experienced bloggers chatting about their ROI, so what is this stand for is Return On Investment. What they are speaking about is how much they earned compared to how much they spent on their marketing strategy. The content marketing ROI calculator is a great asset to measuring your content effectiveness, so I have some tools you can use.

Of course, I recommend Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools. The only other tool on the list I am using is Buffer, I have been using this for years with good results. I do recommend you check out the other tools, I have not tried these so I can’t give you any feedback on them.

Totally agree with you that content marketing is essential to the success of a business. And it should be a chosen channel in a digital marketing strategy. Great article explaining about content marketing.

Regarding the content marketing tools, would you be writing more articles to expand and explain on each of the tools? It would be so helpful to know what each tool offers, how it can help our business, and what we should do.
