Introduction to Luxury Content Marketing

Content is the fuel that powers the engine for luxury brands. More traditionally, this has included things like magazine articles and spreads (Vogue, Robb Report, Harpers Bazaar), videos (No. 5 the Film), books (The Michelin Guides), and others.

The major change in content marketing came with the advent of the web and, more specifically, with the launch of search engines and the eventual consolidation of the web through Google.

Traditional forms of content marketing, such as magazines, are still in use. However, most content marketing efforts are now tailored to digital experiences, such as articles, social media, videos, shorts, infographics, email, and more. Brands must also recognize emergent content marketing opportunities via virtual and augmented reality technologies.

Definition and Importance of luxury content marketing

If you’re looking for a dictionary definition, you could define content marketing along these lines:

“Content marketing is the creation and distribution of online and offline material to generate interest in products or services without direct brand promotion.”

But that’s far too simple to really understand the importance and power of luxury content marketing. The marketing method flips traditional outreach, direct and disruptive advertising, and instead allows brands to provide potential clients and customers with value that inspires, entertains, informs, educates, and ultimately converts them to lifelong brand advocates.

Benefits and goals of luxury content marketing

Ultimately, the key benefit of content marketing is that you engage potential clients and customers on their terms.

Gone is the shotgun marketing approach of trying to reach many non-specific people, hoping one of them is interested in your product. Instead, content marketing targets people who are interested in exactly what you are offering and educates or entertains them in a way that draws them in and leads to a conversion.

Not only does this help you more efficiently direct your marketing budget, but it also adds value for clients and customers and positions your brand as a go-to resource, keeping people coming back for more.

Overview of key principles and strategies

How is this accomplished?

There are numerous channels, platforms, mediums, and methods for getting your content out there. We will cover these later in this hub and through content linked to from this page.

That said, there are a few key points that you should understand that can make the content marketing process more manageable and increase your likelihood of success.

These concepts include:

  • Content Relevance and Luxury Brand Alignment – Ensure your content remains relevant by aligning it with your luxury brand’s image, values, and target audience. This creates a strong connection with your audience and establishes your brand’s unique positioning in the luxury market.
  • Emotion and Storytelling – Engage your audience by evoking emotions and using storytelling techniques that create a compelling narrative around your brand. Share the story of your brand’s heritage, craftsmanship, and the luxurious lifestyle it represents to captivate and resonate with your luxury consumers.
  • Exclusivity and Scarcity – Embrace the power of exclusivity and scarcity in your content. Highlight limited editions, exclusive access, and events to create a sense of exclusivity and cultivate desire among luxury consumers.
  • Quality and Craftsmanship – Showcase your commitment to superior quality and craftsmanship in your content. Demonstrate attention to detail and emphasize how your brand’s exceptional products or services contribute to its credibility and desirability in the luxury market.
  • Personalization and Tailoring – Tailor your content to provide personalized experiences for your luxury consumers. Understand their preferences, interests, and aspirations, and deliver content that resonates with their desires, enriching their overall brand experience.
  • Authenticity and Transparency – Build trust and credibility with your luxury consumers through authenticity and transparency in your content. Be genuine and transparent, and showcase your ethical practices, sustainability initiatives, and values to establish a strong and authentic connection with your audience.
  • Omni-channel Integration – Deliver a seamless and integrated luxury content experience across multiple channels. Ensure consistent brand messaging and experiences across your website, social media platforms, print materials, and events, providing your audience with a cohesive and engaging brand journey.
  • Continuous Innovation and Adaptability – Stay ahead of trends and embrace continuous innovation and adaptability in your luxury content marketing. Experiment with new technologies, content formats, and storytelling techniques to captivate your audience and maintain a fresh and exciting brand presence.
  • Long-term Relationship Building – Cultivate long-term relationships with your luxury consumers beyond the initial purchase. Implement loyalty programs, offer exclusive content, and personalize communication to nurture customer loyalty, foster brand advocacy, and generate positive word-of-mouth.

Keep these strategies in mind as you begin your content marketing journey. Each of these key strategies will set your luxury brand apart in terms of content strategy and help you create a distinguished online presence and provide a consistent experience.

Crafting Compelling Luxury Content

It is critical for brands to tailor their content precisely to better resonate with their intended audience. The key here is in crafting content that is focused, informative, compelling, and interesting all at the same time.

For luxury brands, there is an added component of quality. Every customer touchpoint must meet the same high standards, or you will introduce the potential for brand erosion. So, while you focus on the above elements, you must also be uncompromising with content quality.

Understanding the luxury audience

Luxury brands cater to highly specific audiences with unique demands and expectations. Before diving into the luxury content marketing process, it’s critical to clearly understand who your exact audience is, where they spend their time, and what kinds of content they actively consume.

Even the best content is meaningless if it goes into the void of never being watched, read, or heard. It is true that the rules of marketing are different at the luxury level and that audiences are just as much following the brand as the brand is catering to the audience. That said, if your audience prefers video and you give them tons of long-form written content, your content marketing efforts will likely fail.

Developing a unique brand voice

People love luxury brands for their unique products and services. Your content should reflect this uniqueness. Failure to adequately capture and convey your brand’s unique voice will lead to eventual brand erosion, as you will send mixed messages in your marketing.

Your content team needs to understand exactly what sets your brand apart from others and ensure this is included in a brand guide. This brand guide should have everything about the unique stylistic elements of your brand and content to ensure consistency across all content marketing channels.

Understanding your luxury brand’s unique voice and consistently capturing this in your content will set you apart and help you retain your brand’s luxury status.

Luxury Content Formats and Channels

Key to your brand’s luxury content marketing efforts will be utilizing a multi-channel strategy tailored to your specific audience.

“Utilizing the right content formats across all channels your propsects engage on will be critical to maximizing your chances of content marketing success and getting the best ROI.”

As noted above, it is critical that you understand where your clients and customers spend the most time and what types of content they consume. Yelling into a void will yield no results and waste your marketing budget.

Know your audience and engage them with quality content at every possible point. This will ensure the greatest ROI on your luxury content marketing efforts.

Written content for luxury brands

Graphic showing the different types of written content that can be used to help luxury brands educate and entertain their clients and customers.

Long-form written content is typically one of the first things that comes to mind when mentioning content marketing.

While it certainly isn’t the only popular content marketing medium anymore, it is still one of the best ways for luxury brands to get in front of their desired audience online.

Done correctly, long-form content serves the dual purpose of educating and entertaining clients and customers and facilitating ranking on search engines for desired terms. The key is that all long-form content should be created with the end user in mind first and foremost.

Examples of long and short-form content many luxury brands are successfully using to get in front of their desired audience include:

  • Blog content
  • White papers
  • Ebooks
  • Press releases
  • Lead magnets
  • Targeted sales copy

There are many more types of written content. However, these represent some of the most commonly used methods for luxury brands. Remember, the user comes first. When crafting written copy, it should always help your target audience better understand, use, and get more from your product or service or make it easier to purchase from you.

Visual content

Visual content is huge within the luxury space. Most luxury products and services have a heavily visual component that lends well to photography. This is one reason luxury products and services are featured prominently on websites like Instagram.

“For luxury ecommerce brands, visual content on platforms like Instagram and Pinterest offer a prime opportunity to increase sales, especially since you can now sell directly on the platforms.”

Top searches on Instagram alone include:

  • #fashion (1 billion+ searches)
  • #art (1 billion+ searches)
  • #travel (600 million+ searches)
  • #style (600 million+searches)
  • #luxury (200 million+searches)

Platforms like Instagram and Pinterest offer the chance for luxury brands to serve up high-quality visual content in a compelling and visually striking way, instantly reaching your target audience.

Even better, for many luxury brands, these platforms now offer the opportunity to make sales directly, which can effectively generate more sales.

Social media and influencer marketing for luxury brands

While celebrity endorsements are nothing new, modern influencer marketing takes things a step further, allowing luxury brands to connect with more niche-relevant influencers.

The primary benefit for luxury brands is that niche and micro-niche influencers generally have the attention of a brand’s target audience and offer the opportunity to stand out compared to a high-profile celebrity with a more general following.

Some examples of niche and micro-niche influencers include:

  • An Instagram influencer that collects and reviews Birkin Bags
  • A luxury travel influencer with a dedicated following on YouTube
  • A scuba diving influencer that exclusively reviews luxury dive watches on YouTube

Each of these niche influencers will likely be connected with the exact audience luxury brands want to reach. Partnering with these types of influencers removes some of the drawbacks of working with more traditional influencers, including:

  • Wasted marketing budget
  • Mismatch with large audience segments
  • Potential issues with the behavior or actions of the celebrity or influencer

For this reason, while traditional celebrity endorsements are still very much in demand, niche and micro-niche influencers on social media are expected to grow as a popular content marketing method for luxury brands.

Video marketing in the luxury industry

Along with photography, video offers a fantastic medium for luxury brands to showcase products and services in a visually captivating way. This is especially true for fashion, automotive, travel, and similar niches.

Both long-form videos and, more recently, video shorts, such as you would see on TikTok or Instagram Reels, allow brands to reach their target audience in a way that is more entertaining and memorable.

One of the main challenges companies will face is the often high cost of quality video production. While these costs have certainly come down over the past few decades, creating quality videos that won’t devalue the brand will require an upfront investment.

Popular platforms that companies can utilize for video distribution include:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Facebook Reels
  • Tik Tok
  • Instagram Reels
  • Dailymotion
  • Twitch

It’s also crucial that companies not discount more traditional content mediums such as television and long-form video.

As previously mentioned, Chanel No. 5 The Film to this day is still hailed as revolutionizing how luxury fashion brands use video to reach their audience. While digital platforms are the way of the future, traditional television and film still have a broad reach.

Podcasting and audio content strategies

As with video, podcasting and other audio formats provide a more entertaining and immersive medium for creating and distributing content.

For luxury brands, podcasts offer the chance for fans to peek behind the curtain. Brands can offer everything from interviews with key people at the company to information on the latest drops and upcoming releases.

Taking this a step further, brands can utilize their podcast audience to add an extra element of exclusivity with podcast-only releases or similar promotions.

User-generated content (UGC)

Graphic showing the definition of user generated content along with some examples.

Among all the different content types, user-generated content is one of the most powerful for luxury brands. This type of content can come in many forms, from videos posted by fans on social media to pictures, reviews, blog posts on fan websites, and many others.

UGC is so powerful because it adds social proof, validating a brand. This is incredibly potent for luxury brands when paired with celebrity and influencer marketing.

One example would be having a famous actress post a photo showcasing a new handbag on their Instagram account. Or having a famous athlete record a TikTok of their new shoes or some other product. When done naturally, these serve as compelling examples of user-generated content with the potential to reach millions of fans.

Building an Effective Luxury Content Strategy

Before deciding which mediums you will operate in, what content types you will focus on, or anything else on the implementation side, you first need a content strategy.

As with any other business strategy, a content marketing strategy will guide your efforts and create a foundation to refer to when questions arise.

Your content strategy should include several different and vital components, including:

  • Competitive research
  • Buyer personas
  • Content guidelines
  • Keyword research
  • Social media planning
  • Video planning
  • Article planning
  • Content generation workflows
  • Brand guidelines
  • Editorial calendars

This is one example, and depending on which mediums you are pursuing, you may have a few other areas that need to be included in your strategy. However, you must include everything upfront so that you understand how each piece of content will work together to further your organization’s goals.

Defining content goals and target audience

Before you get started with the above items, you must first understand your content’s ultimate goals.

“Never engage in content marketing without precise and clear goals. Failure to do so will lead to poor ROI, audience mismatch, low conversion rates, and potential brand erosion for luxury brands.”

Some examples of different goals that luxury brands will have include:

  • Driving brand awareness
  • Obtaining more clients or customers
  • Increasing revenue from existing customers
  • Thought leadership
  • Educating and informing clients and customers
  • Search engine optimization
  • Reputation management
  • Lead nurturing
  • Cross-selling and upselling products
  • Promoting events such as product launches
  • Community building

While there are many other goals, these are some of the most commonly cited goals we hear from clients when starting their content marketing strategy.

Most likely, your luxury brand will have a few of these goals and likely will have to change goals as your business matures.

Newer businesses will likely be focused heavily on driving brand awareness and obtaining more clients, while a more established company might be focused on thought leadership and reputation management. Conversely, brands with more complex products might be interested in educating and informing clients, whereas brands with simple and upfront products might not need as much informational content.

As you can see, content marketing goals heavily depend on your brand’s specific circumstances and should be carefully understood in the early stages of creating your content marketing strategy.

Content planning and editorial calendar

Once the why of content creation has been clarified, the next most critical piece of your content strategy is the what and when.

This starts with looking at your goals and determining the best type of content for your end users. For example, if you are trying to create educational content for a highly complex product, you will likely be better off with a mixture of videos and some long-form articles.

If your brand is trying to build community, you might be better served with podcast content, targeted social media posting, and entertaining videos.

The type of content that you need will be highly varied depending on your goals. However, what is critical is that you make sure that you are keeping your end user in mind.

Go through and list each type of content you plan on producing, and then begin brainstorming topics relevant to your end goals. Some examples of content brainstorming methods for different goals include:

  • SEO – keyword research, competitive research
  • Educational – addressing common questions from customers and clients, looking at what people also ask on Google, researching questions people ask on sites like Reddit or Quora
  • Lead Nurturing – addressing common challenges to your products or services, finding user-generated content from current customers happy with your brand, breaking down any barriers they face when trying to buy and use a product or services

These are just three of the many goals for content marketing, but should give you an idea of how to generate content ideas. The is critical to make sure you are producing helpful content for your end user.

For example, if your end goal is community building, you likely don’t want to churn out a bunch of blog posts in isolation just to get SEO traffic. Confusing your goals can lead to wasted resources, poor results, and dissatisfied end users.

With this in mind, create a list of content that will match your end goals. How much content you start with will significantly depend on the niche you are operating in.

For example, creating a full-year content strategy might not work if you’re in fashion due to the quickly changing fashion landscape. In this case, you might be best planning your content each quarter. Or, if you are operating in private aviation, you are likely okay working with longer-term content planning.

List out your content, and then set up your editorial calendar so you can see what content needs to be produced and when it should be completed. You should also know who will create each piece of content and what your content creation and quality control process will be.

Content distribution and promotion strategies

Another critical component that should be addressed within your content is your distribution strategy. Remember that even the best content in the world means nothing if nobody sees it and, perhaps more importantly, your target audience doesn’t.

Common channels for content distribution can include:

Owned Channels

  • Website/Blog: Your website is a central hub for sharing content, including blog posts, articles, videos, and more.
  • Email Marketing: Send content directly to your subscribers’ inboxes, including newsletters, updates, and personalized content.
  • Social Media Profiles: Share content on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and others to engage with your audience.
  • Podcasts: If you have a podcast, distribute episodes through platforms like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, etc.

Earned Channels

  • Media Coverage: Get featured in news articles, interviews, and press releases in reputable publications and media outlets.
  • Guest Posts: Contribute articles to other websites or blogs in your industry to tap into their audience.
  • Influencer Collaborations: Partner with influencers to have them share your content with their followers.

Paid Channels

  • Content Discovery Platforms: Use platforms like Outbrain, Taboola, and Revcontent to promote your content on other websites.
  • Paid Social Media Advertising: Promote your content to specific target audiences on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
  • Search Engine Advertising: Use Google Ads to promote your content through search engine results.
  • Sponsored Content: Pay to feature your content on relevant websites or newsletters.

Shared Channels

  • Syndication: Republish your content on third-party platforms like Medium, LinkedIn Pulse, or industry-specific websites.
  • Community Forums and Groups: Share your content in relevant online forums, communities, and social media groups.
  • Content Curation Platforms: Use platforms like Flipboard, Scoop.it, and Feedly to curate and share content from various sources.

Offline Channels

  • Print Materials: Distribute physical content like brochures, flyers, and magazines at events, conferences, and other offline gatherings.
  • Direct Mail: Send printed materials or promotional items to your target audience through postal mail.

Collaborative Channels

  • Partnerships: Collaborate with other brands or companies to co-create and distribute content to each other’s audiences.
  • Influencer Takeovers: Let influencers take over your social media accounts or platforms to share their perspective and content.

Mobile Channels

  • Mobile Apps: If you have a mobile app, distribute content to users directly through the app.
  • Mobile Messaging: Share content through SMS marketing or messaging apps.

Measuring and analyzing content performance

Finally, your content strategy needs to include how you will measure performance and what metrics you will use to analyze success or failure.

What doesn’t get measured doesn’t get improved. Regardless of how solid your strategy is, many areas need to be optimized during subsequent iterations.

Ideally, you should revisit your content strategy and make updates once a year or more, depending on the size and complexity of your content operations.

Make sure you understand every analytical tool that you will be using. These can include:

  • Website Analytics
  • Social Media Analytics
  • Customer Surveys and Feedback
  • Email Marketing Analytics
  • Heatmapping
  • CRO Measurement

Ensure you have very clear KPIs in place to understand if your content is furthering your goals and efforts, hindering them, or doing nothing.

Have a plan in place for how often data will be reviewed and have a plan in place for how you will use this data to improve your content marketing efforts.

Skip The Hassle And Get A Professional Strategy

Creating a luxury content strategy can be complicated, time-consuming, and costly when not handled by a professional. For many companies, it can be a year or more before finding out you’ve made mistakes.

5 Examples of Successful Luxury Content Marketing

You can learn much from top luxury brands currently engaging in content marketing.

One of the things each of the below companies does well is presenting content that appeals to their target audience in visually appealing ways. This means content created not necessarily for search engine rankings but to educate, inform, and entertain their audience.

Four Seasons

Screenshot of the Four Seasons Magazine homepage.

Four Seasons has mastered the art of appealing to the full range of its target clientele through the Four Seasons Magazine. This includes families, singles, and couples seeking tips on maximizing their travel experiences. 

Through the Four Seasons Magazine, you can find various tips and guides covering topics such as:

  • Discovering new travel destinations
  • Off-the-beaten-path experiences
  • Wellness activities and destinations
  • Top restaurants and gastronomic experiences
  • Travel guides for families
  • Personal stories

All of the content is filtered through the lens of the high-end clientele that Four Seasons caters to. Without being pretentious or overly formal, the Four Seasons Magazine speaks to its audience and provides value without being overly wordy.

Christie's

Screenshot of the Christie's Auction House stories page.

Luxury auction house Christie’s has been creating powerful content to complement auctions for a while now. One of the things they do very well is going in-depth into the history of the pieces and the people behind them. 

Some examples of content that have been exceptionally well executed include:

Along with written content, Christie’s offers a wide selection of videos appealing to people not interested in reading articles. Another thing that Christie’s has done well is making it easy to search through the content using multiple filter types that would appeal to the specific clientele reading their stories.

Domaines Barons De Rothschild Lafite

Screenshot of the publication The Journal by Domaines Barons de Rothschild.

Château Lafite Rothschild has created. A digital journal is equally as enjoyable as its wines. The aptly named “Roots” covers various aspects of the famed vineyard, from behind-the-scenes interviews to annual events.

One thing that immediately stands out is the visually striking layouts and the use of high-quality imagery to complement the words in the articles. Everything has been meticulously planned, and while not a prime example of search-optimized content, the creators of the Roots Journal know their audience and cater to their expectations well.

The Ritz Carlton

Screenshot of the Ritz Carlton destination guides page.

The Ritz Carlton offers destination guides, inspirational materials, travel tips, and personal stories through their online publication, The Journal. As with many other brands I’ve spoken of thus far, the team behind the Ritz Carlton understands their target reader very well and provides informative and enjoyable content. 

Some examples of content that immediately stuck out included:

As you can see, like the Four Seasons Magazine, Ritz Carlton’s The Journey perfectly balances each client type, from singles and couples to families with children. 

Moët & Chandon

Screenshot of the Moet & Chandon guides page.

Lastly, Moët & Chandon have created guides to help drinkers understand food and champagne pairings and the history and intricacies behind each of their champagne. 

Some examples of their content that stood out include:

  • The Perfect Serve – is a short yet stylish video with written tips on correctly serving champagne.
  • Wine and Food Credo – another simple yet informative article explaining the different uses of champagne.
  • The Art of Winemaking – seven videos showing the history of Moet and Chandon from the vineyard to the table. 

Two things that stand out immediately are the levels of detail put into the formatting of the content and ensuring high-quality visuals, which is essential for luxury content marketing.

Second, you can see in the screenshot above that the brand has made it easy to sign up for their newsletter, allowing for continued marketing. This has been done non-intrusively, ensuring the experience of using the website isn’t hampered.

Trends and Innovations in Luxury Content Marketing

As important as understanding what content marketing is and how to develop and implement a strategy is knowing current trends and innovations.

If you are working based on decade-old information, trying to create keyword-stuffed articles just for ranking, you will inevitably fail to both rank in search engines and satisfy your users.

The same goes for visual content such as videos, shorts, and images. What worked even just a few years ago is old news today.

What’s more, new mediums of content marketing are evolving, and failing to incorporate these into your strategy can leave your brand struggling to catch up once these technologies go mainstream.

Emerging technologies in luxury content marketing

AI, VR, AR, the number of terms being thrown around for new technologies can be overwhelming. However, it’s essential to understand each of these technologies and how they can further your luxury brand’s content marketing goals.

Take augmented and virtual reality as the perfect example. Fashion brands such as Burberry have launched augmented reality solutions, allowing interested buyers to “try on” clothing or see how handbags look in their personal space.

Other retailers, such as Macy’s, are utilizing virtual reality to help you see how new furniture might look in your home. Using VR stations, interested buyers can put on headsets and design their perfect space before buying furniture in-store.

Taking things a step further, luxury brands can use this technology to aid their content marketing efforts. This can include allowing people to share snapshots of themselves in virtual clothing on social media, using AI for pattern recognition, and importing customer experience.

Personalization and customization in luxury content

Carrying on from the previous sentence, personalization and enhancing the customer experience are at the forefront of how brands are approaching content marketing moving forward.

Because so much of luxury is wrapped up in exclusivity and personalization, it’s only natural that content marketing moves in that direction.

Many brands are now focusing on completely personalizing the content marketing experience, from email to social media content and every other customer touchpoint where content is involved.

One prime example is Burberry’s “Social Retail” store, which was opened in Shenzhen, China. The concept allows shoppers to better integrate their in-store experience with their digital lives and creates a more personalized experience through content marketing.

Other luxury brands utilizing personalization in their content marketing efforts include Jaeger-LeCoultre in their personalized email marketing newsletters, Four Seasons’ use of guest information to create tailored recommendations through content, and many others.

Moving forward, personalization will be one of the motivating factors employed by HNW and UHNW consumers when selecting which luxury brands to frequent.

Sustainability and ethical considerations in luxury content

One final trend that has become front and center and is expected to become a more significant concern moving forward is the sustainability and ethical considerations surrounding luxury brands.

Regardless of a person’s stance on politically charged issues, nobody wants to see trash floating around when scuba diving in St. Tropez or liter covering beaches and forests.

For this reason, sustainability has become a motivating decision in the way that many luxury consumers choose the brands they work with.

Content marketing provides a prime opportunity for luxury brands to tell and show clients and customers exactly how they are addressing these problems and creating a more sustainable world.

Examples include Guccie promoting their new off-the-grid collection, Prada utilizing content marketing to promote their Re-Nylon bags, LVMH using different content mediums to help consumers understand their LIFE 360 plan, and numerous others.

Luxury Content Marketing in Global Markets

Along with sustainability efforts, luxury brands must consider their global presence and the evermore interconnected world we all live in.

This means content should serve the intended purposes of educating, entertaining, and promoting luxury products and services while considering differential global audiences.

Fulfilling these objectives can be incredibly challenging and is compounded by the fact that content tends to hang around much longer in our digital world. The last thing any luxury brand wants is to create content for one audience that provokes a negative response from another, or that looks bad a decade later.

Take the example of this advertisement from luxury phone maker VERTU from the mid-90s. While this was likely a perfectly fine ad when it was made, looked at through a modern lens, the optics are not the greatest.

It’s impossible for any luxury brand to predict future cultural trends perfectly or to make everyone happy worldwide. However, it’s critical to understand different cultures and account for current and future trends as best as possible.

This will help brands reach the broadest possible audience within the luxury framework without creating challenges and controversies that can set back marketing efforts now or in the future.

Finally, different niches will have different needs and considerations for luxury content marketing efforts.

Some niches, for example, will do better with video-only content or by focusing on influencer collaborations and user-generated content. Other niches will do better with long-form blog content interspersed with the occasional informational-heavy video.

Depending on your niche, you must tailor your content marketing strategy to your specific audience while considering many of the issues we’ve addressed above.

This task isn’t easy and can lead to poor results if mishandled. For this reason, many luxury brands choose to work with content marketing professionals who understand different niches and know how to flawlessly navigate the many challenges that will be faced when developing an industry-specific content marketing strategy.
