About the course

Effective inbound marketing strategies are dependent on a strong body of content. High quality content draws prospects and customers to your products and services without your having to sell them directly. Content establishes the connections that enable long term, mutually beneficial value exchanges to take place. Content is targeted to personas and the stages of the buying cycle of those personas.

Content marketing is a marketing discipline and business process whose purpose is to create, repurpose, promote and distribute high value content to attract, retain and grow profitable customer relationships.
