At Mamu Media, we’ve built our business model around content marketing because we believe it’s the best tool out there for building the kinds of relationships that enable an organization to reach its customers most effectively. In recent years, more and more companies have seen the potential of this approach and embraced content marketing in their own campaigns, often with remarkable success.
By presenting content that aligns with their clients’ interests, organizations can build stronger relationships with them. For example, IKEA’s “Oddly IKEA” video leverages the current craze of ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) videos to connect with people who are interested in its products. I’ve written before about how Patagonia produces videos about environmental and social responsibility to attract customers who place a high value on those practices. And every day, exercise equipment company Peleton offers its customers hours of new workout videos, a strategy that not only highlights the company’s strengths in its business niche but also fosters customer loyalty.
