Is there any value in locking your content from your target business?
Some marketers think it’s better to give away all of your information to users without asking them to fill out a form. On the other hand, other marketers think otherwise.
Your decision will depend on your business goals. If you’re just getting started and need to create brand awareness, then there’s no need to lock your content. You should give it away at no cost.
But if you want to generate leads and increase sales, especially after you’ve driven demand for your products and services, you should seriously consider ‘gating’ or locking some of your best content.
Creating high-value content and using that content to entice site visitors to fill out with their contact information is what makes inbound marketing effective, says Meher Prabhu.

There’s no better way to start the new year than learning from experience from the past. Here are some lessons learned during 2018 that will help you start 2019 in the right direction.
Maybe you have a website that brings in a lot of sales. It makes you happy. But it doesn’t mean that’s the largest number of sales your company can make.
Because the majority of people who visit your website don’t buy on their first visit. In fact, AdRoll estimates that only 2% of shoppers convert on their first visit to an online store.
Let’s say you beat the average 5 times, that’s still 10%. It means there are many people who can buy your product or service as compared to those that are actually buying it.
That’s why you need remarketing. It helps you to track people who have visited your website without converting and send them targeted messages. In other words, you want to bring them back and turn them into customers.

This is again Jaime Nacach from Bloominari and in today's episode, we're going to be talking about what marketing content to use in each stage of the sales funnel. This is an important topic to cover because it is really important to know that you can't be using all types of content in every part of the sales funnel. Why? Because depending on where in the sales cycle, each of your customers is, they want to see and be informed of different things. So let's jump right into it.
Alright, over here it's a very typical sales funnel that you can see, it starts from when people are visitors, all the way until they reach the stage where they do come paying customers. So in this case, this is going to be a very short video episode because there's not that much to cover but we're going to give you some examples. So one of the first things you want to do at the top of the sales funnel is to create engagement, but before creating engagement, you want to create awareness.
So in order to create awareness that your brand or your company exist, you have to create content that people are interested in. So that means usually talking about writing blogs that can be both writing blogs as well as video blogs, podcasts or anything else where you're trying to provide some valuable information so that people are aware that you exist. Then let's assume then people that are aware about who you are, the next step is, they might want to follow you and keep in touch and be informed of what it is that you continue to provide in terms of content. So the next step could be for them to sign up to be following you on Twitter or they could follow you on Google+ if you're still using that, or on Facebook, or on Instagram or nowadays on snapchat; there's many ways that people can follow you, right. And, it's another step in terms of showing that they're interested in what it is that you're providing.
The next step, when people are more engaged and they really start to trust you and believe in what it is that you are teaching, the next type of marketing content that could be used is when you can actually provide some sort of eBook or a newsletter or something else that people can download and keep it in their email or somewhere else that they can actually access later.
