How to avoid content marketing challenges for small businesses

Content marketing strategy challenges and how to avoid them

For small businesses, content marketing is the cornerstone of a successful online marketing strategy.

Content marketing helps your small business to be different from your competitors, it positions your small business as a trusted company as your company website becomes a go to place where people come for answers.

As much as content marketing is an incredible effective strategy (when done right), doing it right has a set of challenges for your small business, as explained below.

Money issues and other resources

As much as creating and sharing content increases your product awareness, it is costly to do that.

Research, writing, designing, editing etc. all need to be done by someone and those people are either you, employees you pay, or contractors you pay.


Another challenge Small businesses faces with content marketing is quantity. Small businesses that create content and post it very sporadically (without a schedule) reduces the engagement with their audience and thus it takes MUCH longer for it to start working.

So what can you do to avoid the above challenges?

Life is an endless series of trade offs. Content marketing introduces one of the age old ones of time vs money.

When you generate content yourself you invest your time and save money. When you pay writers you invest money and save time. What almost everyone actually does is some combination of the above.

The key is to find less expensive writers who can generate quality content, which is not as hard as it sounds.

So how do you get started with your small business content marketing strategy?

The 1st step for a good content marketing strategy for your small business is to determine what your target audience wants to hear and what you are able to provide.

The main point here is do not just focus on what you want to say but also consider what your audience wants to hear.

By focusing on your target audience, providing valuable content generally about your small business or your product or service and how they help them solve their problems.

A content marketing strategy for your small business is very significant.

Keep it simple, focus on your customers, and publish regularly. It works.
