Business to Consumer Content Marketing Strategies

Business to Consumer

Gaining a competitive advantage online is challenging, but maintaining that advantage in today’s digital age is even more difficult. Your online marketing success is dependent on the content that you publish.  Why? Because content that is focused on what the consumer actually wants to read transforms mediocre content marketing into stellar content marketing.

Having trouble producing quality content? Generate new ideas by keeping these strategies in mind:

Create content that educates. If people are reading your emails or blogs, they want to learn more about your business. They are looking to expand their knowledge on your product, service, or general business practices before making initial contact. Buyers have become incredibly resourceful. If there isn’t information available to them to make an informed decision about your business, you may be losing customers. 81% of consumer buying decisions start online, so it is essential to reach customers early in the buying process. By providing content that educates, you are not only helping consumers make informed decisions, but you’re benefiting your company in the process.

Offer content that comforts. In order to determine what content best suits your company, it’s important to understand who your audience is. Addressing your audiences’ questions, concerns, and confusion by offering your expertise on a subject is a great way to build trust and acquire new customers. While it may seem difficult to comfort a large audience with general educational material, it is as simple as providing the right answers to the right questions. Doing so can help establish the valuable business to consumer relationship on a solid foundation.

“Pull” consumers in with your content. Use content marketing to boost your inbound marketing strategy and “pull” new customers into your business. Unlike outbound marketing, inbound marketing is a way of offering information to consumers and allowing them to come to you. This means it’s essential that your content is not only educational and comforting, but also enticing enough to “sell” your business. One way of embracing inbound marketing are well-maintained social media pages. Keeping content fresh on your social media channels allow consumers to come back for more information time and time again. And this strategy works! 77% of business to consumer companies have acquired new customers via Facebook.

Building your customer base could be as simple as enhancing your online marketing content. Whether you’re starting a business, growing a blog, or redesigning your webpage, keeping your audience in mind is essential. Embracing the addition of purposeful content in your marketing strategy will improve your business’ web presence and, in return, invite new customers to your business.
