Find the right balance with a content mix
Content mix is all about proportions. Your research-based personas and audience messaging cards specify priority content considerations for your audience. The content you’ve mapped to your customer journey lays out which content your audience wants at which points of their experience with your company.
What’s missing is how much of each type of content. What’s the ratio of articles to infographics? Of topics for Sue to topics for Tom? This is what your content mix answers. It helps you find the right balance of different elements of content, taking into account your company strategy, audience needs, and available resources.
