Value-driven content marketing: What’s in and what’s out

Are you treating your content marketing as a one-way communication funnel rather than an opportunity for dialogue?Value-driven content is how your brand aligns itself with your values. Simple to say, difficult to achieve.

Your content marketing strategy should provide your audience with genuine value, not just promote products and services. A value-driven approach builds trust and brand loyalty, forging stronger consumer relationships.

Building your brand’s equity will drive higher sales. The market is changing, and so is what our consumers deem valuable.

5 examples of what’s in and what’s out in content marketing

Here's what's in and what's out by category of benefits that content marketing can bring to your brand.

1. Empowering content

In: Create accessible and applicable content that connects your audience to your industry. 

The key here is to understand your audience’s needs, not just their pain points. 

Out: Unaligned value propositions

2. Brand loyalty

In: Create consistent branding by:

  • Establishing colors and fonts

  • Marrying your business to a voice

  • Creating a sustainable content schedule

  • Creating content that fosters dialogue

The key here is to choose sustainability. What is feasible for consistency?

Consistency = brand loyalty

3. Authenticity

In: Share your brand’s story, values, and mission. 

Your audience wants to know what they’re supporting by supporting your business. That’s a fair question

List your values, realize your vision, and establish a mission.


Create authenticity by striving for a genuine connection with your audience.

The key here is to integrate value within your messaging.

4. Engagement that drives sales

In: Engagement is more than posting.

Other pertinent forms of engagement are:
