We live in a fast-paced, immediate satisfaction kind of world. Grabbing your audience’s attention quickly is a necessity. Your organization must be able to get its message or story across in an intriguing manner that draws the consumer in, convincing them that they need more. Then, deliver the rest of the message in a cohesive manner. That’s where our 3-30-3TM messaging strategy comes into play. You have three seconds to get their attention, 30 seconds to intrigue them a little more, and three minutes to fully relay your brand story. 3-30-3 is rooted in our psychology; it’s the way our brains operate! Here’s the complete breakdown of 3-30-3.
Content marketing refers to the strategic creation and use of content to tell your story in a consistent and cohesive matter. It encompasses all of the content your business or organization develops to bring awareness to your company, including website content, blogs, social media, email newsletters, marketing collateral, public relations and more. Generally speaking, content marketing is informational not promotional, and it can be highly effective when used properly.
Inbound marketing is the process of attracting customers to your products and services rather than you reaching out directly to potential customers. A good inbound marketing strategy is well-rounded and includes content marketing, social media, search engine optimization, blogging and more to create brand awareness and attract new business. Because it is highly cost-effective (61% cheaper than outbound strategies according to SearchEngine Journal), it is a very popular (76% of marketers use inbound strategies according to HubSpot) method for getting your brand noticed. Is your organization doing it right?
