Markitects Featured in Forbes’ “Finding The Best Venue For Your Content”

Forbes features Markitects’ Founder & CEO, Francine F. Carb, in a recent article titled, “Finding The Best Venue For Your Content: 11 Effective Strategies”.

Developing great content is a reward in itself. However, if that content doesn’t strike a chord with its core demographic, it isn’t performing its function. Businesses need to know where their content is most likely to reach their target audience and make the most impact.

With the sheer number of channels that a company can tap into, it might be overwhelming to find the right venue to host its content. Should the business look at social media, or is it better off doing a blog to encourage comments? Eleven leaders from Forbes Agency Council discuss below the most effective strategies to help businesses pinpoint the best venue for their content so as to achieve maximum audience engagement.

Francine Carb, Founder and CEO of Markitects, recommends, “Go where the end user goes, rather than where the industry goes. In other words, make sure your intended target audience visits the websites, conferences, professional organizations and other places where you advertise. Forget about websites and venues where your client or their competitors frequent.”

Markitects is well known as a content marketing agency. Let Markitects help you write the perfect content and identify the best channels for you to reach your clients and customers on. Contact us to learn more about our services.
