Why You Need Original Content For Your Marketing Strategy:
- Showcase your own expertise: Creating original content allows YOU to showcase what you know. People don’t have to question you about if you know your stuff because you already prove it to them little by little with your original content.
- Create tag-worthy social content: By creating original content, you are creating something worth sharing by others. Just as you probably share other industry-related articles that are written by others, others could be sharing your articles and content, bringing more exposure to your own brand.
- Drive more web traffic: Perhaps one of the best reasons to create your own content is that you can drive people back to your own website with clicks and interactions on the content. This not only helps with subconscious brand-building, but also helps increase your authority online with things like Google. This can help with overall SEO strategies and more.
