B2B Content Marketing Tips

If you create B2B content, you have no doubt been using it to generate leads and brand awareness for your business. You’re not alone. A study carried out by the Content Marketing Institute found that 95% of B2B organizations are using some type of content marketing, and that means there is a lot of it vying for space online.
As a B2B content marketer, it is possible to create plenty of quality, original content across your channels, but it does need to be done in the right way. Here are ten ways to ensure your B2B content offers your audience real value and not just a lot of irrelevant noise.

  1. Write for A Human Audience
    Okay, so you want your content to be noticed by Google, but you also want it to entice real people to your door. Always write with humans in mind first and search engines second. That means only using relevant keywords to support well-crafted and relevant content.
  2. Write for Different Audience Segments
    When writing your content, think about different segments of your audience rather than always writing for a global audience.
  3. Give A Clear Brand Message
    Always keep your brand image and personality in mind when creating your B2B content. Writing anecdotal content is fine, as long as it doesn’t give your audience a mixed message.
  4. Keep Content Fresh and Consistent
    Writing regular content and planning out that content well can really maximize your B2B marketing efforts. Once you start writing and posting on a regular basis, your audience will know what to expect and grow to trust your brand.
  5. Get the Most Value from Your Content
    When you put so much of your time and effort into your content, you want to be sure you are going to get a good return on that investment. Make a list of the content channels that work the best for you and stick with them.
  6. Check Content Provider Credentials
    When handing the content marketing reins to a third party, it pays to check their credentials. Check reviews, check over their portfolio and ask yourself whether they are good enough to write for your target audience.
  7. Be Versatile
    We mentioned writing for segments of your target audience earlier, but you also need to get the balance right when writing for your entire audience. Think about content that will go down well with everybody - it could be a famous quote, an infographic, an anecdote or simply a cartoon.
  8. Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment
    Content curation can also be a useful technique for your business when you use it in the right way. It’s a great idea to shake up your strategy now and again and try different topics, fresh ideas and new sources of quality content.
  9. Trust Your Instincts
    If you truly trust your content and know that it is going to get you results, don’t be swayed otherwise. As long as your conversions are telling you that your content is working, why change?
  10. Build the Perfect B2B Content Marketing Toolbox
    There are so many content curation tools out there for the taking. From Google Alerts to Atomic Reach, you have the tools at your disposal to build the perfect B2B content marketing kit - a unique toolbox that will help you to create, optimize and distribute your content for the best results.

A purchase transaction may happen online or offline, but shopping is definitely a universally online phenomenon today. Every buyer uses the internet to get information when shopping. B2B buyers are no different, regardless of industry. Manufacturers can’t deny the power of content marketing, but many haven’t fully bought into investing in B2B content. Trade shows were expensive before the pandemic. As we come out of the pandemic, it’s unlikely that they’ll make a comeback to their former glory anytime soon. Print magazines and journals are not as relevant as they once were. Your team can’t reach out to every prospect in person. Content marketing can be an important element in your marketing strategy because it’s ready when your customer is.

So You Can Create Content that Google Will Find Easily and Rank High

It’s estimated that Google processes about 63,000 searches every second. When you consider that most adults conduct an average of at least three to four searches a day, it’s evident why you want to rank well in search engine results pages. Many copywriters may use keywords to boost SEO but may not fully understand how search works. Google’s main purpose isn’t to function as a marketing tool to promote your product or service. Instead, it exists to gather and organize the most useful and relevant information for the user. Understanding this can help make your SEO content be more accessible and useful.

When you go to the library, you don’t ask the librarian to tell you what to read. You want to read what interests you. In the same manner, when you create content, publish what your audience wants to read, not what you like. Okay, maybe the analogy is a bit outdated, or even alien to many of us. What library? Who goes there? Everything’s online! But you get the idea. Your customers have questions. They want answers. Here are three ways your copywriters can get ideas from your audience.

Prioritize Quality, Consistency and Frequency

"Easy reading is damn hard writing." - Nathaniel Hawthorne, American novelist and short story writer
