Content is the most powerful marketing tool at your disposal—but with increasingly fierce competition between businesses, brands are finding it harder to distinguish themselves from their rivals.

However, custom content has become the secret ingredient in business success. Here are five reasons why you should consider creating custom content.

1. Custom content will make your brand stand out from the abundance of competitors

Here's an astonishing fact: 27,000,000 pieces of content are shared each day. Recently, marketing expert Mark Schaefer brewed-up a storm with his piece on content shock.
