The Importance of Content Promotion.
Creating great content is obviously an important part of any content marketing plan, but your job doesn’t end as soon as you hit the publish button.
The key to successful content promotion is finding the places where your target audience spent their time online and taking your content to them, driving them back to your platform to drive traffic, engagement and conversion rates.
Building a loyal, subscribed audience who will interact with your brand beyond buying from you drives value and expands your reach.
Your brand has two audiences that provide value:
- Desired audience - the audience you're creating content to for.
- Actual audience - the audience curated through the content created.
Done well it can be easier to build a personalised connection and track ROI with a subscriber because subscribers have opted-in to hear from you.
Owned distribution refers to publishing content into a platform or channel you have complete control over - how it's read, consumed, produced and promoted.

- Case studies
- Additional collateral - PDF, eBooks, printed literature, stakeholder decks

Getting your content in front of a different audience, who would otherwise not even know it exists drives more traffic to your site, builds brand awareness and authority in the market.
Paid distribution refers to paying for third party channels to promote your content, reach desired audiences and drive traffic to owned channels.
