LQ’s Compelling Content Marketing Proposition

More companies than ever before are recasting their branding strategies to focus more on intellectual content; Content that captures the attention of an audience and genuinely engages people.

In fact, nine out of ten organizations are now marketing with content that reaches beyond their traditional sales pitch by presenting information, ideas, and even entertainment valued by their customers. It’s transforming the way many firms communicate. It means turning a new page in business communications. We’re entering what the writers at publications such as HBR have recently coined “the era of corporate enlightenment.”

Up to 70% of people would prefer to know more about a company by reading an article instead of an ad, according to The Content Marketing Institute.

Even The New York Times has suggested that these “native advertisements” garner attention comparable to some news content.

On a fundamental level, it involves the practice of storytelling with editorial integrity, that is supported by sponsorship. It’s a model that LQ has honed over several decades with its peer-to-peer content and Partnership Profile Program, and Executive Exchanges. It means leveraging LQ’s peer-to-peer content marketing strategies to communicate with your existing customers and broaden your reach to new prospects, but without selling. 

But recent studies show many marketers continue to find it challenging to produce engaging content. LQ’s peer-to-peer publication process ensures quality. Instead of pitching your products or services, we want you to deliver valued information to make your buyers better informed, and more intelligent.

LQ has a basic belief about the value of delivering high quality editorial: if we consistently provide our readers and attendees with quality, they will continue to reward us with their loyalty and business. It’s a practice we’ve honed for more than two decades. Contact us now for more information on LQ’s customized Partnership Profile Program.

LQ Magazine has a distinctive place in the market given its unique mix of Canadian and American readers - and an editorial environment that reflects the fact that we are each other’s greatest trading partners – and the largest trading partners in the world, with some $680 billion in goods and services changing hands each year between our nations.
