  18. 18. Content Marketing<br />Communicate with clients and prospects without selling<br />Content marketing is a marketing technique of creating and distributing relevant and valuable content to attract, acquire, and engage a clearly defined and understood target audience - with the objective of driving profitable customer action.<br />It is non-interruption marketing. Instead of pitching your products or services, you are delivering information that makes your buyer more intelligent<br />The essence of this content strategy is the belief that if we, as businesses, deliver consistent, ongoing valuable information to buyers, they ultimately reward us with their business and loyalty.<br />The first rule of content marketing is to understand that your customers only care about themselves.<br />If we aren't communicating valuable, compelling information to our customers on a consistent basis, how can they ever see us as industry experts?<br />If the majority of our content is focused on our products and services, how are we solving the everyday pain points of our customers?<br />Social Media CRE<br />

  21. 21. Social Media CRE<br />Social Media is not the Cash Register<br />CRE decisions take a long time and are often made by committee and logic rather than individuals and impulse<br />What’s been proven to work in B2B is for marketers to reach out to prospects with smart, engaging, educational content that leads to trust. The trust leads to a more personal relationship and hopefully new business<br />You don’t sell stuff on Social Media sites. You gave people access to you and your expertise, and pay attention to when the time might be right to talk business<br />That’s the principle here, Social media isn’t the cash register. It’s communication tools that help form the foundation for healthy business relationships that eventually lead to a sale or new assignment<br />
