5 Ways to Use Content Marketing to Attract New Business

Content Marketing is an overarching term that involves the creation and sharing of content for the purpose of engaging your prospects. Manufacturers who are trying to reach the professional tradesmen would benefit by building your brand, increasing your recognition and having you become a thought leader in your industry.

Relevant and valuable content will attract a clearly defined and understood target audience.

Here are 5 ways to use content marketing:

  1. Define your target audience.
  2. Identify their pain points - what keeps them up at night, and develop a way to address them.
  3. Make a blog the center of your communications efforts - make it the one-stop shop concept where professional tradesmen can come and get valuable info and insights.
  4. Continually measure your response and make adjustments if necessary.
  5. Jump start your blog traffic – repurpose content through other social media channels like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook using third-party tools to make the process easy and efficient to manage.
