6 Ways Your Employees Can Accelerate Your Content Marketing

Once employees have a handle on the basics of content marketing, explain what you’re currently doing to create and promote company content. How would you like your content marketing to evolve, and how do you see employees contributing to these efforts? Discuss as a team how they can contribute, and together create reasonable but clear expectations for them to follow. Encourage Employees to Share Blog Posts and Social Media Content A good way to ease employees into content marketing is to first ask them to share the content that’s already been produced. You can also encourage them to link to your business content through their own personal blogs and websites, which will increase traffic for both parties. Encourage creativity and idea sharing.
