The following  post from www.clickz.com explains why that is the case.

Content marketing is an extremely powerful tool that marketers are utilizing more than ever, and it should definitely be a part of the marketing mix for every every startup.

In the next two years, content marketing budgets are poised to grow by 59 percent. Every day, about five billion pieces of content are shared, two billion photos are uploaded, and 500 million

Tweets are generated, driving millions of conversions daily. I also believe that start-ups can have an advantage over large enterprises, even if they have more resources.Start-ups have the passion and patience, two very important components in cultivating an engaged and loyal audience.

How Start-ups Can Get Into Content Marketing

There are no shortcuts or magic formulas to content marketing, and serious strategy is imperative for start-ups, since any mistake can be a major blow.Here are some of my recommendations to get into the game:

Infographics are an innovative way to display text in a more easily digestible format. The grab the attention of your audience quickly and help them to break down and understand concepts.

When infographics are combined with well written copy, they can really cut through the clutter of the content jungle and make an impact, as illustrated by the examples shown below.
