How Content Marketing Lures 'em In and Hooks 'em

Q: Why did the fish cross the road? A: ‘Cause it was hooked!

O.K., lame jokes aside, “hooked” is what we want every curious visitor to become. As we discussed in an earlier post, growth hacking relies on funnel activation: get visitors to become users; get users to become lifetime buyers.

As that post makes clear, compelling content plays a significant part in activating visitors. Content functions as both the lure and the hook. It’s what brings visitors to your site and what will keep them coming back.

Not surprisingly then, a savvy content marketing campaign can increase user retention, and ultimately, ROI.

What is Content Marketing?
