What is Marketing Content? (150 words)

  • Sumo

When I explain to people I primarily focus on journalistic work and marketing content, I’m often greeted with a confused expression.

From my perspective as a writer, marketing content is any form of communication created to inform or engage a specific audience. The most popular marketing content I create includes blog posts, website text (About Page, Company Bio) and online articles that read much like a Sunday newspaper feature story, complete with original reporting and quotes.

  1. Succinct advice Angela!

    I haven’t told really anyone what I do yet. But when I do, I’ll make it simple and say I do writing work online or something and then if they ask what that means, I’ll just say I get paid to write 🙂

    1. Hi Elna, That sounds good to me! I think it’s funny when people automatically assume “writer” means someone who writes fiction novels. I get that confusion all the time! LOL! Happy writing! ~Angela
