Content marketing is a discipline that has exploded in recent years, with some estimates saying that it accounts for more than 20% of UK marketing budgets. Telling stories through high-quality content can be extremely effective for increasing awareness of your brand and – ultimately – driving sales. Mike Sewell, managing director of Cambridge-based content marketing agency CPL, will define what content marketing is and how to go about it.

Content marketing can play a part in every aspect of the marketing funnel, from awareness right through to loyalty and advocacy. With more channels available than ever, Mike argues that content marketing should play a major role in any organisation’s marketing mix. Using a range of case studies, Mike will guide you through:

The channels it can encompass
How it will help your business
Some pointers to think about when creating your own strategy
