With B2B Marketers allocating 23 % of the budget to content creation and 53% considering content marketing as their top inbound strategy, it is safe to say that content is king holds the same magnitude of relevance that it did up until now. The race to create and post viral content to enhance page ranking has led to a generation of several misconceptions about content marketing, believing which, marketers, unknowingly are damaging their brand reach and reputation:
❏NOT FOCUSING ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
Whenever someone starts a new business, their first instinct now is to gather maximum audience on social media platforms.

Social Media is one of the most critical and influential marketing platforms that there can be. Instead of considering it a futile effort, we suggest you leverage the most out of it.
❏CREATING WAY TOO PROMOTIONAL CONTENT:
If you think that the audience and consumer’s of this generation won't notice sales pitch, let us help you burst that bubble. Your consumer can sense a sneaky promotion within seconds into your content reading/viewing. Your brand should be able to connect with your audience. The content you put-out should leave a mark on the customer’s perception. Your content should add value to your consumer's life and resolve their issues.

If strategize right, small content can also enhance page ranking. Writing more extended content poses the threat of driving consumers away from the websites.
