Photographs, video, original artwork, text and other type of content or media are sensitive content. Therefore, make sure you check the source of the content and acknowledge them if you happen to use other people’s work.

This is to give you the rights to future distribution in case you want to reuse them. Also, make sure that the brand is the sole owner of all rights, title and interest to any and all of the work produced. With that, hiring a right agency will help you come up with power content!
AIM FOR EVERGREEN CONTENT!
One of the biggest pitfall of content marketing is to come up with seasonal content or on hot current trends. They will certainly increase the traffic to your site but the impacts are short lasting. Once these trends or fads dies, the value of the content decreases drastically. The way to go is to aim for evergreen content that will never go out of style. For instance, instead of creating a video to talk about Pokemon Go why not talk about mobile game applications in general? You can use topic such as “Top 10 Games on App Store” and include Pokemon Go inside the topic, it will be an ever green content. This is particularly important for small businesses who want the marketing effort to be long lasting.
