What makes The Lead Agency different

B2B content marketing frequently asked questions

The way people consume media has changed. A huge increase in digital consumption has resulted in an inbound marketing revolution, with content becoming an increasingly significant part of any B2B marketing strategy.

Content marketing is a proven lead generation tool that is particularly relevant in the B2B space, as companies typically have to educate customers about their products before convincing them to purchase.

In addition to lead generation, B2B content marketing can be instrumental in informing your business on the topics your customers are particularly interested in. Knowing what content they engage with is just as valuable as having them engage. This can be acquired and applied to a range of other marketing platforms and campaigns. Content marketing also contributes to search engine optimisation, improving your website’s visibility on search engines.

B2B content marketing is an extremely effective communication tool that can raise brand awareness, add value for your customers and create credibility for your brand. However:

There is a lot of content out there, and anything your business produces will compete with a multitude of other articles, whitepapers, blogs, and news pieces.

The Lead Agency specialises in the creation of content that cuts through the noise and resounds with your target audience. We take the time to develop an intimate understanding of our client’s customer buying journey to craft quality content that engages at each stage of buyer readiness. Our B2B content marketing solutions address specific problems and pain points at every stage to nurture and guide customers seamlessly through the sales funnel to purchase.

Our content marketing services follow three key concepts:

1. We Make It Valuable

When a customer loves your marketing, they’ll love your company. We deliver content your customers and prospects truly want to read, share and act on. Putting the customer at the centre of your marketing strategy, The Lead Agency creates content that truly connects.

2. We Speak To Buyer Personas

We know your company has many different prospect profiles and we understand how important it is to personalise communications for relevance and appeal to each group. And we do that across each of their buyer journies.Before delivering a content marketing strategy, we segment your target audience and consider the specifics of each group by asking:

  • Where do they do their research? Online? Print? Audio?
  • What do they read? Articles? White papers? Reports?
  • What knowledge do they have of your industry?
  • How can you enhance their business?

3. We Establish Thought Leadership

High-quality content is vital in establishing thought leadership. This content should be informative, detailed, innovative, and contribute to the industry it is crafted to connect with. The most essential part of creating content, however, is to address the needs and wants of the target audience. Ultimately, their confidence in your business is what wins you a position as as a thought leader in the industry.

Being viewed as a leader in your space not only attracts more customers, it gets prospective clients and stakeholders talking, and makes them more likely to consider your proposals.

Almost every market is saturated with content. Standing out requires a well-designed and well-executed content marketing strategy. Not everyone does this and there is your opportunity to lead your industry. Get the most out of your content marketing efforts by avoiding common mistakes, including:

  • No Clear Content Plan – Define your audience, set measurable goals, and work collaboratively towards common objectives. Having no clear content marketing plan leads to inconsistency and mixed messages.
  • Poor Keyword Research – Conduct thorough keyword research to optimise your content for search engine rankings. Consider using tools like Google Ads Keyword Planner and UberSuggest to identify high-ranking terms. Poor keyword research hinders your content’s visibility.
  • Nothing But Blogs – Offer a variety of content types to cater to different consumer preferences. Repurpose existing content, such as blog posts, into eBooks, videos, and social media posts. Continuously add new, value-driven content.
  • Overdoing It On Promotion – Focus on providing real value and establishing trust with consumers. Content marketing is about building meaningful relationships that translate to loyalty and sales through brand trust. They want tangible evidence of your ability to meet their needs and can easily tell sales copy from content of substance.

Developing a competitive B2B content marketing strategy involves investing time, resources, and money. While it may be tempting to charge customers for valuable resources like eBooks or fact sheets, many businesses offer them for free.

The B2B buyer journey is long and complex, with buyers often conducting thorough research. Providing free information enhances the customer experience, removes barriers, and helps decision-makers seamlessly move through the buying funnel.

Free content, such as blogs, also improves search engine optimisation to help boost your visibility online and drive more traffic to your website.

By strategically leveraging resources like eBooks, fact sheets, and infographics, you can learn more about your audience. Through simple forms, users provide details like their name, email address, and company details to access helpful content, which can be immensely useful for lead generation and nurturing.

At The Lead Agency, we can help you keep in touch with your customers and prospects.

We know that in order to remain relevant, it’s important to create more than just one type of content. Consumers have a short attention span. If you regularly repeat the same form of content, you risk losing their interest.

  • We Provide Content in a Range of Different Formats: Our writers and researchers create a range of B2B content pieces, utilising various presentation methods, including articles, infographics, news pieces, how-to guides, press releases, videos and white papers. We can also provide other content and communication tools at the request of our client.
  • We Cover Various Topics: If the scope of the content you are producing is too narrow, you risk running out of original ideas, repeating yourself, and losing the interest of your audience. We ensure you are posting relevant content related to your specialty so your viewers feel they are gaining a deeper insight into your company’s beliefs and what you offer. Most importantly, we create content that the customer wants to read that adds value to their relationship with your brand.
  • We Distribute Content On Multiple Platforms: We know that content is only effective when it’s being seen. As such, we strategically plan content distribution in a way that is most likely to reach your target audience. We distribute content on a range of marketing mediums, including websites, blogs, newsletters, print materials and social media channels.

Creating consistent, alluring content that delivers results against your business goals can be challenging. The Lead Agency is a specialist in B2B content marketing, with experience crafting high-quality content for a range of B2B companies across industries. Find out more about how we can captivate your clients and elevate your brand with results-focused B2B content marketing.

Content marketing is a vital strategy for promoting B2B businesses. It helps establish your brand, communicate your value proposition, and guide customers through the buyer journey.

Essential for various digital marketing campaigns, content serves as landing pages for SEO, PPC, and display ads. It also fuels social media engagement and research-driven B2B buying decisions.

Effective content marketing not only delivers captivating articles and assets your customers will love to consume, it also leverages the strategic use of keywords for SEO to drive traffic to your website. Expertly crafted content on website landing pages is crucial to hold attention and motivate prospects to take action.

Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO) is one way to optimise the content on your landing pages. When utilising this approach, companies test variations of their design and content, including headlines, CTAs, and offers, to determine which elements are most effective.

With a strong content strategy, coupled with Conversion Rate Optimisdation (CRO), B2B businesses are primed to consistently attract and convert customers.

A well-executed content strategy is crucial for addressing roadblocks at each stage of the B2B buying process.

In the awareness stage, focus on creating public content like blog posts and social media posts that target keywords and topics relevant to your buyer personas. These activities attract prospects to your website and generate traffic.

In the consideration stage, show prospects why your product or service is the best solution to a problem they experience. Use calls to action to capture their contact information and employ lead magnets like whitepapers or eBooks to provide value in exchange.

During the decision stage, you want to nurture prospects through B2B email marketing and automation. Customise your content based on their buyer persona and interactions with your website. Send targeted, relevant content to answer their questions, provide product information, and make sales offers, increasing the chances of conversion.

After the purchase, aim to retain customers, upsell, and turn them into brand advocates. Engage them with customer-focused content and user-generated content. Share new content and business updates, and seek their insights to improve your business.

Overall, a well-executed content strategy helps guide prospects through the buyer journey, from awareness to consideration, decision, and post-purchase stages, ultimately driving conversions and fostering long-term customer relationships.
