Are You Making These Top 10 Content Marketing Mistakes and Sabotaging Your Results? | Social Media TodayDo you ever feel like you’re spinning your wheels when it comes to developing and integrating your content marketing strategy and plan into your business and overall marketing initiatives?

Content marketing, when planned and executed properly, can help you ignite not only online and social media results, but also true foundational business results. You can increase sales, generate more leads, increase brand awareness, build and nurture communities, humanize your brand, and reach markets you simply can’t access via other mediums.

Unfortunately, many brand leaders are their own worst enemies when it comes to defining and executing a well laid out content marketing plan. Often times they get lazy and impatient, they want immediate results and don’t understand it takes time and ongoing investment.

Content marketing is not a “set it and forget it” type of initiative. You have to constantly be feeding the content engine, inspiring and connecting with your audience to achieve desired objectives.
