Bill Gates had conferred groundwork for the importance of content for informative and entertainment purposes for business, sales, exchange of ideas, and other internet transactions, as we know today by explaining why content is king. People are creating content, promoting content, and sharing content with others to a whole new grade. Firms are now advertising for goals that go beyond just selling products or services; they have introduced new horizons in content strategy to build an attractive audience that relates to what the brand (firm) wants to conquer, with a message and a purpose of making a sale. On the other side of the coin, consumers are not only accepting information from firms who are providing it to them, they are actively interacting to promote, support and engage in firm activities, with friends and members across the globe. The boundaries that keep us united aren’t digitally constructed, which means mammoth for both firms and consumers.
Content is paving the way for a fitting environment where social media gets dominated by it. Next, it won’t be about how content is manipulating people to accomplish a goal or an objective; it will be about how people are sharing the content that firms introduce to build a following of their own.
“Traditional marketing talks at people. Content marketing talks with them.”
– Doug Kessler
Content is king where sharing is the kingdom.
Content is one side of the coin while sharing is the other side. Without the purpose of sharing, content has no reason to endure in the digital world. There isn’t enough depth and opportunity left when content is not shared in the internet space. If people are expected to put up with content that they don’t like and find insipid to disparage, there is the sort of content published that they find compelling and engaging to praise.
There are different people as much as there are different ways to write content and share. Everybody works according to their strengths and weaknesses. Some may differ sharing content while some may promote it only for its effectiveness; nevertheless, content’s effectiveness is in function because of sharing.
The internet is already revolutionizing the exchange of content between firms to consumers and consumers to firms, but what is fascinating is that the psychology that goes behind motives that firms take into account while creating content for consumers is also revolutionizing rapidly. Customer segmentation is not only the tool that firms need to sell their products or services: firm are involved in the customer co-creation process. How? Because sharing is addictive. The function to make use of the internet to publish specific information has inevitably introduced sharing at the fringe of personal and professional interaction. It’s not about how sharing content makes it more purposive, it’s about how sharing content has revolutionized the internet, which has inspired the kind of content being published by both firms and consumers.
When content is published there is an initiation when content is shared it is reciprocal action.
Nobody can have access to no content the way it does when it is shared not to impress, but to interact. Content is resourceful without sharing, but sharing is a resource by itself. Sharing is a system of behavior, reaction, interests, and ideas; while content is universal. How can content exist if not for the absolute relationship between firms and consumers, that leads to a relationship between consumers and the whole audience?
