Ideal prospects can't find you where they are looking
They Know You Before You Know Them
Your ideal client expects to find information about any product, service, or challenge they face simply by typing a keyword into Google. In fact, their customer journey is already more than half over before they even make contact with a company like yours.
If you aren’t showing up while they are trying to understand their problem or find a possible solution, then you’ll never get the chance to win their business.
Do you find yourself facing these common challenges?
The most important element when it comes to building a long-term, sustainable marketing system is content. But here’s the thing, it’s not enough to simply produce content for content’s sake. You must use the right content strategy, and the best way to do this is to produce content that is built on education and gaining trust. In order to be effective with this, you must come up with a plan.
First, Design The Right Story
When you understand your prospects’ journey from Awareness to Consideration to Decision, you can develop a list of core content topics that guide them to a decision to work with your company.
Once you have these content themes, you can plan what you need to create. Each theme should include a substantial topic related to your business or industry and represent an important keyword search term.
Promote Your Story
With your story mapped out, it’s time to publish it where your audience can find it. Here are a few examples of content platforms that can be used:
- Website Pages
- Blog posts
- Social Media
- Email Marketing
Connect The Dots
The content of your story should drive revenue, but unless you track it, you’ll be flying blind. To better understand how to get a return on your content investment and how much you should actually invest in creating a certain form or package of content, use your software tools (e.g. HubSpot or similar) to track your sales all the way back to where a prospect first learned about you.
