Presenting Your B2B Services on a Website Page

When you sell to other businesses, you can’t rely on the same strategies as businesses that sell to consumers. Website content for B2B companies must engage multiple decision makers at various stages along the buyer’s journey. More importantly, your B2B content must present your company’s services in stronger light than your competition’s. So, while you may have a good idea about everything you want to say, it’s critical to find out what your audience wants to know and then ensure they find it on your website, first.

Know Your Audience

In B2C content, skilled copywriters write to buyer personas, a representation of the audience they’re selling to. In B2B website content, you may not be able to identify particular buyers by the same demographics, but you can learn about the audience you serve. Use the analytics from your site to get information about who is reading your content. Instead of identifying particular people within your audience, identify your audience by where they are in the buyer’s journey.

Create Content with a Goal in Mind

Once you know your audience, you can use that information to map content directed at each buyer’s persona you’ve created. Start with the call-to-action (CTA) and think about your user’s intent when looking at your site. The engineer who looks at your website may just be gathering information. Use your CTA to direct that person to the next step in their journey, which may not be the purchase.

Use Descriptive Headlines to Catch the Reader’s Attention

B2B users don’t have time to waste making sure they are getting the right information. Your headlines are like an elevator introduction. You have about 10 seconds to let the reader know who you are and what you do. For B2B headlines, you can’t be coy about your brand. Ask a question or tell a story. Frontload information for B2B audiences. One of the best ways to write a headline is to write it after you create the content. Ask another SEO copywriter to review your headline or even create it.

Write to the User

Tell your audience what you can do for them. Content marketing is about reaching your audience’s pain points, not shouting about your products and services. As you draw your audience in, you can tell them about your company and educate them about your mission.

What Kind of Material Should I Read for Business Insights?

Reading is like the spinach of the writing world, except instead of bulging muscles, it gives you bulging vocabularies!

Content Marketing Best Practices that Garner Attention

Remember the movie, “Field of Dreams”? It made popular the phrase, “If you build it, he will come”. Shoeless Joe and other baseball legends may have magically appeared on a cornfield-turned-baseball diamond. However, when it comes to content marketing, your audience will need more than a field of dreams to attract their attention. If you’re trying to get more traffic to your website, don’t wait for your local SEO efforts to direct your audience. Give them a hand with these proven content strategies.

How to Use a Pillar Page to Improve your Content Quality

Consider the dictionary meaning of ‘pillar’ – “a firm, upright support for a superstructure”, also defined as “a fundamental precept”. Your content marketing campaign is your ‘superstructure’ that requires a ‘firm, upright support’. That’s the key function of content pillar pages. Without these essential supports, your ‘content superstructure’ will neither stand strong, nor will it attract the right attention.

Two Proven Ways to Organize Products with Similar Keywords

In business, cannibalization typically refers to a loss of sales. A company introduces a new product that displaces sales of an older, usually more outdated, product. Instead of having an increase in sales, the market growth remains stable. What does this mean in the world of SEO and content marketing? Keyword cannibalization occurs when two products have similar keywords or phrases and confuses the search engines about which page is right for which query. Instead of competing with other businesses for search traffic, you’re competing with your own web pages. Here’s why keyword cannibalization is bad for business and how you can overcome it.

How to Optimize your Content for a Global Audience

The global market is much smaller than it once was.  Statista reports over 5 billion internet users globally, or about 63.1% of the population. Reaching out to a broader market can help your business grow, but it’s not as simple as updating your website in a new language and simply hoping your audience finds you through search.

How to Build a Functional Content Marketing Funnel

Most people don’t wake up and think, “oh, today is the day I buy my new mattress,” unless they’ve researched different brands and checked pricing at different stores. Modern customers often take their time with major (and even minor) purchases. Using that information about today’s shoppers can help you design a content marketing map, or funnel, that guides the customer to your product.
