5 Reasons for Digital Forensic Examiners to Use Content Marketing

What is “content marketing”? It's a way to share your expertise with clients and prospects alike. Why is it valuable for private- and public-sector digital forensics experts?


1) The people you serve come to trust you. Content shows the thinking that drives the service, the combination of knowledge and personality that sets you apart from competitors.


2) Social media make it easy to share. Whether a slide or video presentation on SlideShare or Prezi, a white paper on Scribd or DocStoc, or customer success stories on YouTube or your blog, your content is more available to a wider community.


3) You can highlight new or underrated aspects of what you are doing. This is the “marketing” side of content marketing – what services help your market, and why?


4) You can highlight problems your community or target market is facing. What do you get the most calls about? What kinds of cases do you most frequently work on, involving what types of technology?


5) An ounce of prevention...show people how to protect themselves, and they'll call you just when they really need you. That saves time and money, along with your staff's brainpower for true challenges. Content marketing is well worth the time and effort put into it. If you know your subject and can present it for average people to understand, you'll build loyalty for the long term. See the rest of the newsletter
