Content Marketing

Our content marketing programs drive profitable customer actions by offering targeted audiences consistent and relevant information, resources, research, news, data and insights. Our custom content is aimed squarely at the intersection of business owners, who want to know how to run their companies more effectively, and our  marketing partners, who want to highlight how their products and services help business owners meet that goal. Inc.'s custom content capabilities run the gamut, from campaign conception and design to perfectly executed end products and distribution strategies. Our custom team produces a wide variety of print, digital, video, infographic and interactive products. Regardless of what form it takes, our custom content  speaks to the information needs and interests of SMB leaders, and drives desired behaviors throughout the purchase funnel. Our market knowledge and editorial expertise is ideally suited to highlighting our marketing partners' product and service offerings. While we develop content in collaboration, our marketing partners can ultimately decide how it’s used for as long as they choose.
