Brands are increasingly turning towards content marketing as a tactic to engage with the people they are trying to serve. While creating content is a way to increase awareness about and affinity towards a brand beyond its product and service offerings, there are many brands that are not creating engaging and valuable content as it does not align with the objectives of the brand or the goals and pain points of its audience. Understanding content marketing best practices allows brands to see a higher return on investment for the content it is publishing. The content marketing learnings in "Building an Audience through Engaging Content" are applied to a project designed for the W. P. Carey Marketing Department. The Marketing Department wants to increase student engagement with and affinity towards the Department in the short term as students move from exploring their major and career opportunities into the long term as students become alumni. Marketing Matters is a marketing resource site designed by students for students. Research from interviews with content marketing professionals and secondary research on best practices from content marketing mavens resulted in the creation of a content marketing strategy for Marketing Matters that aligns with the objectives of the Marketing Department and the students it is serving. The content marketing strategy includes a discussion of strategy and tactics developed for the site, a voice and tone guide that content creators should follow when creating content for the site, and examples of content that would be used for the site.
