Check out Cherilynn Castleman's thoughts on content marketing

When it comes to creating engagement using marketing, Cherilynn shares:

"Leverage the Interest, Desire, Action (IDA) model by crafting compelling stories, that connect with your audience's challenges, ignite their desire, and drive clear actions like sign-up, purchase, or share. This strategic approach enhances marketing engagement and effectiveness."

She also shares what marketers can do in order to tap into the power of AI and become more effective:

"When marketers and sellers collaborate using AI, they enhance customer relationships and drive sales growth! AI driven analytics & algorithms can: 1) identify potential customers and their behaviors; 2) generate targeted content; 3) track customer behavior and preferences."

Cherilynn explains how marketers should be thinking about content and the buyers’ journey:

"Content is the bridge connecting buyers to solutions. Think of content as the compass on the buyer’s journey. Start with Buyer First—understand their pain points, aspirations, and questions. Then, craft content that guides them from awareness to decision."
