Getting it right…B2B content marketing
The more we’re flooded with B2B content marketing, the more important it is to be good at it.
In theory it’s simple. B2B content must focus on saving time and money, or helping people do their jobs better.
In practice, it can be frustrating if you don’t have a roadmap that leads to prospect engagement.
Make it relevant. Make it engaging. Make it timely.
“Content that builds trust is human, personal, relevant, it isn’t greedy, and it doesn’t trick people.”
How to create B2B content
The first step is to think of a topic for which you have an opinion or some expertise. The best content is a study or practice that touches on a hot button in your market space.
Just jot down a few bullet points. Then go do something else. Most of the article will come to you spontaneously when you’re not thinking about it. Keep a note pad or app handy.
