Why you should consider content marketing

Within the last five to 10 years, the Internet has become host to a growing number of business opportunities, via social media.  From the usual suspects of Facebook and Twitter, to emerging platforms such as Google +, Instagram, and Pinterest, content marketing has become essential to either finding work, or building your business.

There are multiple reasons why you should consider content marketing as a strategy in your job search or business plan:

1. It helps build your online reputation/personal brand.

2. You can create your own job.

3. It allows you to be more creative in marketing yourself...

...and many more reasons that are mentioned here.
