Marketing Text The main results of the project is Content Marketing Handbook (CMH). A user will be able to find researches about content marketing available in the market, examples of good practice that will help to measure the effectiveness of marketing strategy.
MH is a comprehensive publication about content marketing consisting of 8 chapters. It contains general information about the project and content marketing (chapter 1: Foreword, chapter 2: Introduction to Content: Definition of Content Marketing and History & Evolution of Content Marketing, chapter 3: Objectives, Benefits and Strategy of CM) as well as more detailed information.
One of it's big advantage is the research conducted in each partnership country which was an additional work done by the consortium. There was no such research in the proposal but the consortium decided to have one because we wanted to know more about our target group and the way they use content marketing. Partners contacted companies and asked for completing prepared questionnaire or met someone from the company directly. This was very in-detailed research and hard work so we're especially proud of it. The results and description of the research is in chapter 7. What's more, consortium decided to gather best practices from each country - what was also an additional work. Partners didn't find those best practices in the Internet, but contacted SMEs directly and asked for such example which was a really hard work to do because it required deeplier relationship with those companies. Interntional best practices can be found in chapter 6. Those two actions: conducting the research and gathering best practices required a contact with our target group which in the end spread the information about the project. In chapter 4 there is a big portion of information about CM tools (15 different tools) presented in a very attracctive way (infographics). Chapter 5 is about CM strategy - it consists of 7 simple steps for SMEs, explaining how to define CM strategy in the company. The concept of steps was created by the consortium. In the end of CMH one can find also a Glossary, a few schemes which present several aspects of CMH in interesting way and other appendixes. The graphic design of CMH v.1 is adequate to the topic of the publication. It's very catchy and attractive.
