  11. 11. What is the Buyer’s Journey anyway? Definition: The active research process a potential buyer goes through leading up to a purchase Awareness Stage Decision StageConsideration Stage
  12. 12. The Buyer’s Journey We’re aware of this phenomenon all the time at retail, but it can be applied to the digital space as well
  13. 13. The Buyer’s Journey - What does this mean for marketers? Just as we need the right products in the right place for customers at retail… …we need the right offers, content and education at the right times to nurture leads toward purchase.
  14. 14. Content Mapping MethodologyContent Type Buying Cycle Stage Keywords User Behavior - All three elements are equally weighted
  15. 15. Understanding User Behavior Awareness Stage Mission: Users are seeking educational, third party, vendor neutral content. Mission: Users are committing to solving their clearly defined problem, more focused on solutions & comparisons. Mission: Users are seeking validation in determining their short list and selecting a vendor. Decision StageConsideration Stage But their goals change throughout the buyer’s journey Customers are on a mission!
  16. 16. What type of content? Awareness Stage eGuides eBooks White Papers Webcasts Solution Comparisons White Papers Expert/ Editorial eGuides Vendor/ Product Comparison Case Studies Trial/ Software Downloads Decision StageConsideration Stage As customers approach becoming “purchase ready,” the information they’re served online must adapt to stay relevant.
  17. 17. Keywords Matter Awareness Stage Issue/ Opportunity type terms Troubleshoot Issue Resolve Risks Upgrade Solution type terms Solution Provider Service Supplier Tool Device Comparison / Review type terms Compare Versus Vs. Comparison Pros and Cons Decision StageConsideration Stage- The buyer’s journey should also dictate how you talk about the offer - Titles, email copy, subject lines and landing pages should adjust as users move down the sales funnel
  18. 18. User Group Kn xville SwagTime!
  19. 19. Wait, who are these buyers again? Awareness: I am a buyer aware of a problem or need Consideration: I am a buyer thinking about potential solutions to my problem or need Decision: I am a buyer trying to decide which vendor or product fully meets my need
  20. 20. Ok, so now what? - Meet customers uniquely where they are with the right content.
  21. 21. User Group Kn xville A real world example Meet Violet - She’s having trouble choosing a landscaper for her home - Done her homework for weeks - Has rare plants and specific concerns - Narrowed her search to 2 vendors, but needs peace of mind
  22. 22. Where is Violet in the buyer’s journey? - Doesn’t need lots of continued nurturing - Is ready to buy - Has short list of vendors selected - Needs to understand ROI and best fit Mission: Users are seeking validation in determining their short list and selecting vendor. Decision Stage
  23. 23. Let’s design an offer Behavior -Needs to decide between vendors Content - Needs real data to validate decision Relevant Keywords -Option 1 vs. Option 2 - Seeking validation - Case study with competitive comparisons - Pros and Cons - Compare
  24. 24. Hey Violet, we have your answer! We’ll start by sending her a targeted email inviting her to “Compare Awesome Landscaping Inc. to the competition” A landing page with even more information about Awesome Landscaping Inc. and how we differ Finally, we’ll deliver the exact resource that moves Violet to make an informed decision
  25. 25. What if Violet doesn’t buy? Remember there are 3 stages in the buyer’s journey! - You may need more compelling Awareness and Consideration stages - Each stage should nurture leads - Too much info too early? “I’m just looking”
  26. 26. How to get started - You probably already have some great content, but in which stage does it fit? - Where are the content gaps? - What are the questions your customers ask themselves?
  27. 27. Analyzing results - Content success can be measured and adjusted! - Let your results drive your content. - Listen to customer feedback
  28. 28. Toolkit - Content is king, but additional tools can help! - Marketing automation platform - PPC advertising - Analytics
