What is a Content Marketing Manager?

A Content Marketing Manager is a key player within a marketing team who creates and manages engaging content that attracts their company's audience. Unlike traditional marketing strategies (which may focus on direct promotions, or paid media, for example), the goal of content marketing is to establish trust with potential/existing customers by providing valuable and relevant content.

A Content Marketing Manager requires a strategic approach to content creation, distribution, and analysis, ensuring that all content aligns with the company's broader marketing goals and customer needs.

The need for a Content Marketing Manager often emerges as a company recognizes the importance of building a strong online presence and frequently engaging with its audience.

Typically, when a company needs to scale their marketing efforts, diversify their content strategy, or strengthen their brand identity, it's time to bring a Content Marketing Manager onto the team!
