Online Stores vs. Content Marketing: 21 Must Have Content Types

Content marketing is the hottest trend in marketing right now, bar none.  So if you are trying to figure out how to market your online store, content marketing is your answer. Content marketing is hot right now for 3 significant reasons:

  1. SEO is dead – learn why here
  2. Content marketing levels the playing field
  3. Content marketing helps you builds trust with your customer

In short, content marketing helps online stores sell more products by creating conversations that engage the target audience instead of aggressively selling to them.

As an ecommerce entrepreneur running an online store, the primary strategy you must use to sell more products is not pitching your products to your target audience every chance you get.  That’s so 2010. Instead, you must become an expert in your niche (read: being an expert vs. being consistent) by sharing content that educates your audience.

Your products will sell themselves once your online store is known for its expertise.
