By offering diverse content formats, businesses can effectively engage with the audience across multiple platforms including social media, websites, and advertisements. This approach places the customer's needs and interests at the forefront guiding them through the entire journey from awareness to decision-making. Content marketing not only introduces potential customers to a brand but also builds trust by freely sharing valuable information, contributes to SEO efforts by boosting website rankings, and ultimately enhances the overall customer experience by offering insights, guides, and solutions.

The content marketing industry is gaining significant popularity as effective content marketing strategy increases the online visibility that can attract more customers and website visitors. Also, content marketing helps in generating more leads that can drive traffic to the website, helps in building customer trust, and creates brand awareness.

However, selecting the right content advertising strategy to align with the diverse and evolving requirements of consumers is a remarkable challenge. Consumer preferences are constantly changing, and crafting content that resonates with the target audience can be difficult. This difficulty arises from the need to strike a delicate balance between creating compelling content and meeting the ever-shifting expectations and demands of consumers. A misaligned content strategy can result in decreased audience engagement, missed opportunities, and even damage to brand reputation.

According to a survey conducted by HubSpot, the U.S.-based company, 38% of marketers who used short-form videos in 2021 plan to invest more in the future. Also, this trend is not expected to slow down anytime soon due to its effectiveness. In addition, 68% of users prefer to watch business videos with a duration of under one minute.
