8 Examples of Content Marketing in Traditional Industries
Posted on October 23rd 2013
Content Marketing is not just for marketing firms or tech companies. More “traditional” companies can take advantage of great content that engages, entertains or informs potential customers and drives some percentage into the company’s sales funnel.
To coincide with my hosting of Content Chat, I’m providing a few examples of content marketing in traditional industries. Please add other examples in the comments!
Examples of content marketing in traditional industries:
Adams County Winery
Funny Videos, Social Media and Instagram to grow audience, mailing list and wine club membership.
River Pools and Spas
Using a blog, educational content and great SEO to attract and inform new visitors.
Central Coast Waterproofing
Educational content, pictures and SEO to expand geographical reach and to do away with paid ads.
Murray Group Insurance
Successfully sing content (blog posts, video and more) to answer insurance questions, inform prospects and garner SEO value for key insurance keywords.

Using blog content, videos and social media to sell solder paste. Yes, really.
Lowes (Home Improvement)
Lowes uses 6 second videos to provide useful tips and to show how to use different products.
