Thou shalt follow basic best practices with content marketing.
When I came across today’s article, “The Ten Commandments of Content Marketing”, I did a quick search as I thought I had already seen a list like this.
Well, it’s not the first. Fast Company, Social Media Today, Contently, pretty much everyone has done its own version of the ten commandments of content marketing.
I thought about not sharing the article, but comparing its list to the others like it, I liked its line-up of basic guidelines it contained.
This article was published over at the Grammar Chic blog. I copy each commandment here, but I suggest you also click the button at the bottom to read more details about each.
Without further ado, here they are:
- Thou shalt esteem quality over all else.
- Thou shalt serve thy customer, for all thy days.
- Thou shalt sell without selling.
- Thou shalt not market without a strategy.
- Thou shalt post new content regularly.
- Thou shalt write like a human, not like a corporation.
- Thou shalt not overdo it.
- Thou shalt not rush it.
- Thou shalt review thy content marketing plan on a monthly basis.
- Thou shalt not forsake data.
So, if you had to continue this trend of “Top 10 Commandments”, do you have an idea what your list would be?
