Problems are a content marketer’s best friend – because helping customers to solve them is a basis for offering useful content that provides tangible added value and a satisfying customer experience.
Now that audiences are faced with more choices than ever before, brands need a more sophisticated approach to stand out from the competition – and relevant, consumable content marketing resources are the new currency to fulfil this.
Content marketing is the concept of creating materials of the highest quality, that are totally unique and that will attract and then engage with audiences online. If you want to make sales and turn your leads into transactions, then you have to undertake a strategy that balances the information that the consumers receive, so that they are drawn to ask questions, look a little deeper into the products and ultimately become a customer.
Identify the problems and challenges faced by your audience: what do they feel is holding them back from achieving success, or stopping them from reaching their goal? Identify how to provide them with information that offers a solution or a means of improving their circumstances, and you’ve unlocked the basis of your content marketing strategy.
You’re not haggling for a sale or commitment at this point, but acknowledging that you understand their needs and providing tangible evidence – a taster – of your brand’s expertise and capability.
