What is the difference between Integrated Marketing Communication and Content Marketing? Why is Content Marketing taking the world by storm?
The old paradigm of Integrated Marketing Communication (or IMC) is dying. In a world fragmented by zillions of online, mobile and offline channels, consumers are tuning out advertisements faster than you can produce them. With endless “ad-free” options to choose from, nobody wants to be interrupted by your brand anymore.
What can marketers do in such a landscape?

What can small businesses, start-ups, free-lancers and other budding entrepreneurs do to build their reach? How can they compete against bigger companies with deeper pockets, greater resources and fuller teams?
In general, the clue is to look at what big conglomerates are doing, and then try to do the opposite – in a customer pleasing fashion of course. Clueless where to start? Well, here are five ideas to begin with.

Who should you pay the most attention to in your organisation?
A) The guy or girl who makes a purchase of your product or service.
I chanced upon a brilliant post by Jeremiah Owyang, renowned web strategist and thought leader, on Advocacy Marketing. This new form of Word Of Mouth marketing is different from the traditional areas as advocates are like members of your inner circle – your best customers so to speak.
Quoting from Jeremiah:
I am currently reading the Secrets of Word-of-Mouth Marketing, a book by George Silverman, which I borrowed from the National Library. Fascinating stuff in there with some explanation of how one can make Word Of Mouth (WOM) marketing work.
The key premise is how aggressive marketing communications alone is no longer enough. You need to develop products that stand out from the competition – his proverbial purple cow as opposed to brown cows which are a dime a dozen. This would mean going to extremes, going after the less obvious, and getting people interested. Not through carpet bombing advertising but Word-of-Mouth.
