Today's B2B buyer is more discerning than ever before, and has access to more information than ever before. They research online, get peer views and opinion, and they call you when their ready to buy, rather than when you’re ready to sell. So you’re involved late in the process, or more commonly, not at all. To get onto the shortlist, you’ve got to be there early in the buying cycle. And to do this takes a programme of great content.
It has to be relevant, useful and interesting. First problem; where does this content come from? Well, every organisation has their own content dungeon – just waiting to be unlocked. But, how do you do it, what’s going to be lurking down there, and how do you tame it? Then, once you’ve thrown the keys away, what are you going to do with all this content? How do you get it into the hearts and minds of the people that matter?
This presentation will involve B2B examples across different sectors and using content in all its possible guises: mobile, video, integrated infographics, Social debates. Even the odd whitepaper...
Session will look at:
Ways to find great content in your organisation, without actually creating anything
What content works, at what stage in the buying cycle
Practical ways to use interesting and different content formats
10 steps to create and implement a content marketing strategy
