Benefits of content promotion
1. Raising awareness a brand, product or service is a great to attract customers. This is especially important in competitive markets, or when you’re a new or up-and-coming business. Established businesses find value when launching a new offering or reinvigorating an existing product or service.
2. Educate your target audience. Promoted content is a great way to educate your target audience about aspects of your industry, company, product or service. Your targeted audience will find your content highly useful and informative and can easily share it with their colleagues, friends or followers.
3. Develop thought leadership. Some promoted content is on informational topics that you want your brand associated with in your target audience’s mind. If a business decision-maker has a business need, does your brand instantly come to mind? If not, promoted content can play a pivotal role to help you get their attention.
4. Build positive sentiment toward your brand. Some startup founders and entrepreneurs may notice promoted content. They appreciate your efforts to reach out and inform and educate them. It’s part of an overall marketing campaign that helps manage how the startup community perceives your brand.
