Explaining a real life example of how we use content marketing for better conversion and qualified leads.

In September we launched a marketing campaign specific for the sector Trade (retail and wholesale). we developed a campaign together with an external agency and we started expeditiously with lots of enthousiasm. The purpose of the campaign was not to explain to customers and potential customers what we do, but rather how we do it. How we help organizations make the transition from analog to digital. The first results were not so bad but the campaign stagnated in mid-October. The conversion remained behind! Recognizable?

Together with the team we searched for a solution. How can we increase the conversion, how can we improve the interaction with contacts, how can we better align our messages to the needs of the target group and how can we distinguish ourselves from the competition. All questions & challenges that need to be resolved.

What content matches best with the customers intentions and his or her buying journey. Ultimately, we as a team quickly agreed content marketing is the key to a successful conversion and marketing campaign? In this presentation you can find some of the key findings and our learnings. If you have any questions or you want to discuss in detail please let us know.
