CREATING CONTENT YOUR CUSTOMERS VALUE

WEDNESDAY | APRIL 21
6:30 PM EDT | 5:30 PM CDT | 3:30 PM PDT

Many businesses think that marketing only means advertising. But
building loyalty with your customers also requires creating marketing
content that is helpful, relevant, and engaging. This course helps
entrepreneurs at any stage define what content will build that loyalty
with their customers.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:
• Understand the role of non-promotional content in a marketing
    strategy
• Apply a framework for developing and assessing your own
    marketing content
• Define the language your customers use to describe their needs
    and desires
• Identify ideas for marketing content that will work for your
    business

This course is the second module in the NYC Department of Small
Business Services’ (SBS) six-module Digital Marketing series. We
encourage you to complete the first module, “Developing a
Marketing Strategy,” before you take this course.
