Content hub

In our 7 Steps guide to Content marketing we define a content hub as:

“A key part of our blueprint for content or inbound marketing, this is a sharable destination for content, social, email and search marketing that can be integrated through the creation of a content hub which is a destination on your website which is a blog or online customer magazine with a planned editorial calendar and resourcing”.

This content marketing hub explainer created by Dan Bosomworth shows the main activities involved with creating and managing a content hub:

  • Defining a content strategy of relevant types and formats of content to engage your audience and achieve your goals
  • Creating an editorial calendar to share content via the hub, for example, a marketing blog, news or resources section
  • Using influencer outreach and social sharing to encourage sharing of your content
