Competition Getting Too Hot? Feet Getting Too Cold?

Expert Tips to Use Content Marketing for Your HVAC Business!

The HVAC industry can be extremely competitive, especially during seasons with extreme temperatures. Even the most experienced technicians can lose business if they don’t know how to use content marketing to their advantage and stand out in the online world. Your HVAC company needs a well-crafted SEO content strategy to use digital material that engages, entertains, and informs your target market.

When we talk about content marketing, we aren’t referring to advertisements or content that’s intended to sell anything. Instead, this content is created specifically to draw more consumers to your website, blog, social media pages and eventually, to your business. Blog posts, infographics, and other forms of media can be used to present actionable solutions using well-written stories and information. The key to successful content marketing is coming up with a simple but effective strategy.

With years of writing SEO content for HVAC companies, the copywriters at MintCopy offer these useful tips:

Don’t Switch On and Off Like Heaters and Air Conditioners - Create Content Regularly!

A random blog post or e-newsletter isn’t going to cut it. In order for content to be effective, it needs to be published on a fairly regular schedule. Come up with a content calendar that builds off different concepts. Develop a series that keep consumers coming back every week to read or watch your new online content. This also gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your expertise in certain areas of the HVAC industry.

Just like HVAC Equipment, Content Quality Matters

You can be a gifted HVAC professional and still not know how to produce engaging content; and that’s okay. For some, writing is like pulling teeth. If you aren’t enjoying creating the content, then there’s a good chance that your audience won’t enjoy consuming it. Don’t hesitate to work with a content marketing agency. This frees you up to focus on your craft, and still allows your business to make use of an excellent content strategy.

HVAC Newsletters Work

Consumers may not remember to check your website regularly, but a weekly newsletter in their email inbox can remind them. Successful HVAC email marketing starts with peaking the interest of the recipient. Cold messaging people is no longer effective and not recommended. Not only will it land your content in the spam folder, but it may also lead to your company being blacklisted for sending unsolicited emails. Offer website visitors a way to opt in to your newsletter or weekly deals. This saves you and them time and energy. You won’t be sending anything to an inbox where it isn’t welcome, and they won’t be irritated by unwanted email.

Tie Everything Together with Social Media Marketing for Your HVAC Company

More people use social media to review and find HVAC technicians than ever before. Use your social media pages as a way to funnel consumers towards your website. Cross-post your content and use social media to widen your scope of engagement.

A Sound HVAC Content Strategy is Essential

Communication is a two-way street. We share our message to get a response. How often do we forget to listen to the response? In our daily scramble to create new content, we often forget about checking to see what our audience thinks. We get so focused on Google rankings that we neglect our real audience – the customer. Creating an atmosphere in which you listen to feedback and reviews from your customers gives you a chance to let your customers know how much you care. Plus, it opens the door to some exciting opportunities in your content marketing strategy.

You’ll Find An Enthusiastic Audience in Exchange!    

Entrepreneurs cultivate discipline. It takes a lot of grit to get up every day and punch the clock without a boss looking over your shoulder. Most small business owners have their must-do list of things that have to get done, regardless of feelings and inspiration. Sadly, content marketing often gets relegated to that have-to-do chore list. It’s typically done out of discipline instead of enthusiasm. Gordon Parks, photographer, film director, musician, writer, and co-founder of Essence magazine, said, “Enthusiasm is the electricity of life. How do you get it? You act enthusiastic until you make it a habit.” If you’ve lost your joie de vivre in your content creation, here are some ways to find it again.
