In 2013, 92% of B2B marketers stated they had an ongoing initiative for content marketing (Content Marketing Institute Survey). Looking forward to 2014, content marketing will be on everyone’s agenda – is it firmly on yours?
Brand awareness continues to be a top goal for B2B content marketing, but it is possible to support more business goals, such as lead generation or increased customer loyalty with a properly planned and targeted content marketing strategy with crisp execution.
With a clearly articulated content marketing plan, providing valuable content to current and potential customers will help you to build trust, enhance audience awareness and increase positive sentiment about your company, product or service.
In order to succeed with content marketing, you need to keep quality to the fore in what is a saturated market; everyone is looking for a piece of the content marketing action – and knowing how to get your voice heard in a noisy landscape is critical for success.
In a time when it is said that 70% of the B2B purchasing decision is made before contact with the company is established, having an authoritative branded voice in the marketplace can make the difference to making a sale.
