Writing has never been my strong point, although creativity and imagination are high up there which is part of my own content strategy, but how about you? Where are your strengths and weaknesses in the content genre?

In a world where content really matters, be it driving awareness, gaining attention, educating or even entertaining it is always a good thing to have a process behind you, to keep you on course.

Enter Lucy Mowatt and The content Marketing Method.

Lucy is an experienced content marketing consultant with more than 10 years’ experience working both in-house and agency-side. Working previously as a magazine editor and now with start-ups and big brands helping them to achieve their goals through strategic content marketing activity.

In this episode we cover;
– The content Marketing Method: Audit – Strategy – Plan – Delivery – Performance
– The best platforms / apps / software to help with developing content
– What do most people do wrong when tackling their content plan

But first, as Lucy comes from Norwich, there was only one question I had in mind to kick off our chat – Alan Partridge, discuss?

Top Tip
Set out your objectives before you do anything in terms of producing content. I would even go one step further and add in all the elements Lucy went on to talk about here such as your audit and strategy.

Favourite Quote
Apart from discussing Alan Partridge was when Lucy stated ‘a lot of businesses don’t think about the audience enough’ which is so true. Organisations can become very insular and think that EVERYONE cares about them, when in reality… they don’t. Write for the few that do care.

And Finally, the Most Important Takeaway from this Episode
Is that you don’t have to be on EVERYTHING. Choose your channels and use them well. It’s good to experiment and test the waters, but don’t feel you have to be everywhere all the time. Small step. Doing one channel correctly, consistently, will help you so much more than spreading yourself far too thinly, especially if you are a small company – know your limits and the impact you can have within these.
