I can understand as a marketer why you love to focus everything on yourself.
It's important to know your needs, your wants, your objectives and your targets.
Content marketing for you is all about your product, your promotion, your message, your website and your business or brand which is the most important thing.
You know what, let me tell you something. People don’t care about you.
Your product, message and website do not mean anything to your audience unless you are adding value.
Now that value is for you to find out.
When you begin to understand your target audience inside out then you will start offering what, when, where and how they need it.
You know what buddy, if you want to succeed in content marketing you have to pay attention on “them” and not about yourself.
There is a reason why it is called “Content Market-ing”. The Content that you provide concerns the market - the “people” you should be caring about need to be “happy” to receive it and find “value”.
I hope this article was helpful.
