We are loaded with content on a daily basis. It’s a marketer’s job to create fresh, engaging material that breaks through the clutter and helps your brand earn the consumers’ trust.

If your content marketing campaign is feeling a little drab, here are some things you can add into the mix to spice up your strategy and reel in your audience.

An image can be worth a thousand clicks, and for that reason, adding more pictures to your content marketing strategy can yield greater visibility for your brand. It’s important to note that there should be some thought given to these pictures – a “snap and post” strategy is not recommended. Ensuring that your images are of necessary quality for its purposes (and if you optimize your images, that you are optimizing for appropriate key words) will do wonders for your brand.
