In the last few years, there’s been a sea change in how businesses, from mom-and-pop operations to Fortune 500 companies, market their products and services, especially online. Instead of traditional advertising, marketers look to generate interest among prospects by providing great content, which is simply information about how their products can help solve a problem. According to Technorati.com, businesses already dedicate 25% of their marketing budget to this sector.
Content marketing is a subtle form of advertising based on relationship building between business and consumer. It takes the form of emails, newsletters, website pages, and online articles, among many other formats. American Writers & Artists Inc., working with a content marketing expert, has just finished a new training program for this channel: 4 Weeks to Content Marketing Mastery with Brian Clark.
“At AWAI, one of our missions is to always keep abreast of developments in the marketing world and help our members adapt their skills to any opportunities in our industry,” says AWAI Executive Director Katie Yeakle. “Content marketing is a huge opportunity in 2013. And we’re fortunate to be able to work with Brian Clark, who took his own content business from scratch to $7 million.”
Brian Clark is an influential voice in content marketing, receiving accolades for his innovative work with his company Copyblogger.com from Performancing, Invesp, and Dun & Bradstreet. But he’s also passionate about helping others make money writing in this up-and-coming niche.
4 Weeks to Content Marketing Mastery with Brian Clark is ideal for freelancers and others enter a quickly-growing niche with high demand for their skills.
