If you find that your business needs help since it seems to be sinking fast. Either your site isn’t getting enough hit or the visitors aren’t being converted to clients. Your normal advertising and marketing tactics are not workings. What you want is to find a stable set of customers and keep their attention. Then you need to know what the customer wants and find the right ways to persuade to make them buy. To do this successfully you need to turn to content marketing.
If you are Content Marketing it means you are creating and distributing valuable and relevant free content to attract and convert possible clients to definite customers, and customers to repeat buyers. The kind of content you make and share is closely related to what your product is; in other words, you are enlightening people so that they know, like, and trust your brand enough to do business with you.
Content marketing is not a sales pitch; it is information being given to your customer. The goal of Content marketing is create credibility, trust and authority that will help the individual be more accepting of the product or services you offer.
However the saying “content is king” is not always right. The current marketing environment is very competitive. You need to give that something extra to attract and keep your customer. There are some key elements that you need to focus on.
Give your Readers Something to Look Forward To:
Positive reinforcement is a very powerful tool. Give your readers something to look forward and come back to. This sort of content marketing makes your customer trust you and like you.
Good quality content encourages your readers and listeners to keep looking up the content provided by you. Getting a good read feels like a reward. It is motivation for doing what you need them to do, that is look up your service or product.
This can only be accomplished by making sure that that every piece of content you write is meant to either solve a concern your customer cares about or entertain them. Most often it should preferably be both.
The content that your customer receives from you should make them feel satisfied. Each piece of content is like a cookie that rewards the customer for eating it. If you do this on a consistent basis, you will find that your content becomes an appealing habit to your reader. In return when you send them information, they know they will enjoy reading it and are thereby less likely to delete it.
There are many content writers that get this formula wrong. They make content that makes their customer’s look away, by creating content that does not benefit the readers. This sort of content has a lot of irrelevant information or has a tendency to oversell the product.
Be Open to Success:
If you want to be successful, you should be someone worth doing business with. While you want to be a specialist in the service you are offering, don’t have the persona of a know it all.
Some types of personas work better than other. If you are looking to attract customer, you will need to be a cool and smart friend that knows how things work. Be someone that leads by example and shares experiences. Aim at being trustworthy, someone whose word has weight age.
When creating content remember you are not trying to land a one time sale, you are looking at building a lasting relationship. You want repeat business and returning customers.
Your content should aim at addressing any objections that the customer might have to buying your product or service. Tell interesting stories about how others have found your business beneficial. While writing your content use persuasion techniques that show your reader that, they need your service or product.
Any successful business will endorse that the customer needs to trust, know and like you before they do any business with you. This is the reason content marketing is as effective as it is. Good content gives you the time you need to build a trusting relationship with your customer.
At the end of the day use your content to drive your business by building the trust of your customers. Give relevant and valuable information to the customer. This information should be such that will help them find answers to their concerns.
