Digital content marketing is a dynamic field – and will you find millions of contents on ‘how to do it correctly’. But, in the middle of ‘how to do’ discussions, we often forget ‘things we should not do’ while marketing content for the clients.
In digital marketing campaigns, ‘one size fit all’ formula is ineffective. You need to innovate and deliver solutions to unique problems. The same is true for ‘things to avoid’ categories. Things that did not work for your competitors might fetch you a higher ranking on the SERP, and vice versa. You have to be on your toes - learning and unlearning – to deliver the best solutions to your clients and their respective digital marketing campaigns.
Having said, here are few ground rules of things you should not do while running a promotional campaign for your digital content. But, first, let’s understand what do you talk about when you talk about digital content promotions/marketing/campaign.
