Content Marketing: Creating Educational Content to Help People Make Informed Decisions to Buy

Updated: Jun 15

Content marketing is the pillar of a successful digital strategy. If you want to elevate your brand, you need to focus on what your audience cares about. Thus, content marketing is the key to help you become an authoritative resource on topics that matter to people and aligns with your brand’s purpose. Content marketing aims not to sell, but to educate, help, and engage with your audience.



In this project, I helped a solar electrician company based in Northern Beaches of Sydney become a local resource for solar panel and electrician services. Our content marketing objective is only one: to help potential customers make well-informed decisions to buy. Therefore, all our content is created to educate. Below you can find samples of content I created for this project.

Meta-description: Explore solar energy below the surface. In this guide, you will find everything you need to know about adopting solar power.

Blurb: Over the past 5 years, the cost of installing a solar system has decreased alongside major improvements in technical efficiencies; thus, many Australians are considering adopting solar energy. In fact, two million Australian homes now have solar.


Although this is a remarkable achievement, coal still accounts for 35% of primary energy consumption. Moreover, fossil fuels impact the environment, but researchers have proven that combustion can also cause a variety of illnesses.


The fact is that adopting renewable sources of energy goes beyond just preserving the environment for future generations; it is about saving ourselves presently. The tendency is to see only climate change and global warming as consequences of polluting the environment; however, our health is directly affected by pollution and changes in the climate.


Many Aussies are not waiting for government actions and are adopting solar panels to save energy and reduce their environmental impact. This is why we created this guide to walk you through the important information about solar energy.
