How to Connect Your Content Marketing Strategy To Your Sales Strategy For Peak Results and Growth

Although content marketing and sales are two of the most important strategies for success, many entrepreneurs often think of them as inherently distinct categories. While content marketing is all about publishing content to attract more traffic, sales is about landing more deals.

Quick analogy: Content marketing brings visitors to the website for sales to convert. Therefore seeing results on both fronts is contingent upon interweaving those strategies together. Š 2018 Blue Label Weekly Magazine

Seeing your blog attracting 10,000 monthly visitors without monetizing those visits is like operating in a vacuum as making a sale is the only way to turn a reader into a valuable asset for your business.

Understanding your audience by using both disciplines. During the sales process, pertinent information, including learning new things about customer wants, needs, preferences, and

characteristics, is gathered. Thus, harnessing that information can lead to and enable you to tailor your content marketing strategy and write more appropriate topics.

Insights and improvement loops. If perfectly strategized, the sales and content teams can feede each other with a constant, steady stream of information; content teams can analyze reader comments and interactions, while salespeople can review the behavior of leads. It is rather healthy for each team to share and use the other’s information towards refining and optimizing their own tactic.

Getting More Conversions

Optimizing your content is imperative for guaranteed conversions. In fact, you’ve already been doing this to a greater extent. On every blog posts, announce who your company is and the service(s) that you provide, add any relevant and valuable content, and give your readers a good reason why they should utilize your product(s) and/or services.

Provide a call-to-action that leads users to a contact form or some other lead generation mechanism.

Ensuring Higher Conversion Rate As more conversions doesn’t necessarily means better leads, your optimized content will serve as a funnel for qualifying [ quality] leads. An ideal strategy is to utilize content topics that only interested leads would want to read (such as content that targets late stages of your buying cycle), which will automatically filter out at least some of the cold/unmotivated leads and leads that are outside your target demographics. Feedback from the sales team is

important as that will enable your content team create better-targeted topics as well as more relevant pitches at the end of each post.

Although both teams(sales and content ) must remain independent, it’s important for them to learn and commit to best practices. A successful sales-content dynamic will succeed only when each team is succeeding on their own.

Consequently, it is imperative to open a dialogue between the teams toward fostering an environment that is conducive to comfortable and productive interactions amongst the teams.

Segmentation

Segmenting your audiences by grouping leads based on the type of content that converted them, or have each salesperson target one specific sub-type of leads is useful for understanding the idiosyncrasies of your target demographics.

HOW TO USE CONTENT MARKETING TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS

Content marketing is used as a strategic marketing and business practice focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly defined audience that will ultimately drive profitable customer action(s).

Though content marketing has grown in popularity only in recent years with the rise of web 2.0, content marketing is not a new concept. Content marketing can be dated back to 4200 B.C. with cave wall publishings on how to stay protected from wild animals.

Content marketing is all about your audience, what they value, and how you can help educate them. When done correctly, this helps create a relationship with your audience, which leads to trust. Therefore, if your audience trusts you, then they’ll be more likely to do business with you when they’re ready to make a purchasing decision.

Producing content with the message your content marketing strategy delivers is a powerful way to communicate with your audience. Content is what you’re trying to deliver to your

visitors, leads, customers, and promoters. The different ways you can deliver a message include blogs, emails, website pages, social media, print collateral, and beyond.

Content has the very important job of pulling people from one stage of the inbound methodology to another. It plays an integral part in the Attract, Close, Convert, and Delight stage.

Your content should attract the right people to your site, convert those people into leads, and nurture and help close them into customers. Your content should always delight your customers, which will turn them into promoters of your brand.

Content marketing is really just the art of communicating with your prospects and customers without having to sell [immediately] to them. Unlike marketing or advertising your products and services, you’re creating helpful, entertaining content that your prospects and customers can enjoy and learn from, which will ultimately ensure trust and strengthen the relationship.

Content incorporates the power of storytelling as every successful company has a story ( What do you stand for? What message do you support?) that is needed to survive. Content entails research to uncover idea(s) that can be expanded on, whether you’re doing it yourself or with a team. Once you’re confident with generating content ideas, you’ll learn how to plan your long-term content strategy.

Being successful and sustainable with your content marketing efforts requires having a plan to organize next steps. A great majority of marketers don’t have a content marketing strategy. In fact, Only 35% of B2B marketers have a documented content strategy and only 37% of B2C marketers have a documented content strategy.

Using blockchain in transportation will afford commuters and tourists, local or foreigner, the most convenient payment system, as this new system will eliminate the long queue in booths or reloading stations.

Blockchain transaction is made using a secure ledger database that is shared by all parties participating in an established, distributed network of computers. It records and stores every transaction that occurs in the network, essentially eliminating the need for “trusted” third parties such as payment processors.
