Build Thought Leadership
It’s time to lead. In every civilized society since the dawn of time, teachers have been revered, respected, and trusted. While your competitors are busy trying to assert their expertise, you can quietly take the next step by demonstrating it. Those who demonstrate their expertise – rather than compete over recognition of their knowledge – are the true experts in their field, and their content reflects it. Demonstrating thought leadership is akin to going beyond the trending stats and opinions – true content innovators ignite conversation, introduce new thinking, and solve issues. Content marketing is experiential education at its best, and the world is your classroom.
Develop Google Authority
Client acquisition is made up by two parts: Generating traffic, and converting that traffic to paying clients. Good content that demonstrates education and innovative thinking converts traffic better than anything else, but first you need to attract that traffic – and lucky for you, Google rewards companies that invest in building high quality content for their audience. Build highly valuable, original content for your target audience, fulfill both criteria – generating quality traffic and converting a high percentage to warm sales leads.
Generate Warm Leads
Great inbound marketing helps warm up your prospects from a state of “disinterested” to the point of “ready to buy,” but at any given time, only 3% of sales-ready leads are ready to buy – and only 6-7% are open to buy from you again down the road. Another 30% are not thinking about buying from you, but may in the future – and 30% don’t think they’re interested in buying from you. How do we manage and nurture these relationships, these potential future clients and customers? The beauty of inbound marketing is can stay in touch and nurture relationships with the 70% of visitors who can become clients down the road. Inbound content requires patience, but any agency worth their salt will tell you up front that good things come to those who wait. Content marketing consistently seeks to develop meaningful relationships with qualified leads by answering pain points, inspiring new conversations, and nurturing discovery.
