  2. 2. (C4)            But, first, what the heck qualifies as “good content?”     WTH?  Words & images that help make someone smarter about a given topic so they feel empowered to take an action  Information delivered at the appropriate time/place in the buyer’s journey from awareness to purchase  Knowledge that can be absorbed and shared to widen net of influencers or prospects  Always evolves based on prospect/industry pulse of business or personal needs   Proven Content Marketing Strategy – 2014 Copyright.

  4. 4. (C4)                                                                                        Why Should You Care? Because…  Your prospects and customers need help solving business challenges; not vetting your product offers  Peer guidance on how to solve those challenges creates rapport & sales opportunities  Marketing plans need buyer-relevant content across the spectrum that can be discovered online (blogs, downloads, streams, etc.) and connected to your sales funnel to determine marketing spend effectiveness.

  5. 5. (C4)                                                                                        Why this is more than hammering out a white paper or brochure … Like all endeavors, a tactic without a strategy for measureable success is a waste of time and money. Before attacking content needs, you need:  A content creation and distribution strategy tied to an editorial calendar and your prospects’ purchase behavior  A commitment to help prospects first by creating buy cycle-relevant information that educates & alleviates business/personal pain  The guts to put your company and its products in the back seat until someone shows interest in starting up a discussion Proven Content Marketing Strategy – 2014 Copyright.

  6. 6. (C4)                                                                                        Pretender or Contender? To separate content pretenders from contenders, ask for help with:  New assets for new initiatives or buyer persona purchase triggers  Information tailored to prospects based on their job role and specific to each step in their own purchase decision process  Guidance and execution assistance with content distribution & digital info discovery  A proven lead nurture plan based on buyer data research (e.g. B2B prospects often need as many as 10 marketing touches before they make a purchase.1) 1. Aberdeen Group: Marketing Lead Management: From the Top of the Funnel to the Top Line  http://aberdeen.com/Aberdeen‐Library/7603/RA‐marketing‐lead‐management.aspx?camp=BL02#sthash.o6TFrDSc.dpuf Proven Content Marketing Strategy – 2014 Copyright.

They play a vital role in both creating awareness and serving as a content distribution mechanism. That said, the key to content consumption success is catering to the preferences of your audience. That means variety dictated by buyer data. Videos? Maybe. eBooks, probably. Games? If your prospects play ‘em. Just mix it up! Proven Content Marketing Strategy – 2014 Copyright. All Rights Reserved.
