B2B manufacturing digital marketing

Manufacturing marketing faces unique challenges, unlike those of other B2B sectors. The combination of highly technical buyers with buyer behaviours that don’t match usual B2B trends necessitates extremely tailored, targeted digital marketing strategies.  

Manufacturing businesses face challenges with:

Manufacturing products and services are technical, requiring content that delves into their specifications while prioritising value and user benefits to drive home the need for them.

The buyer’s journey in manufacturing involves multiple stakeholders, each with distinct needs and pain points, complicating targeting and messaging strategies.

In long sales cycles, marketing efforts aren’t always immediate, making it crucial to integrate with sales to demonstrate how marketing provides leads, insights, and analytics that help personalise outreach and close deals.

Manufacturing relationships and buyer journeys are long and ongoing, requiring a comprehensive post-sale and nurturing strategy to maintain contact, brand recognition, loyalty and future sales.

Manufacturing digital marketing that works

In the manufacturing sector, no one size fits all. Every subsector within the industry has its own complex and nuanced ecosystem with specific challenges and opportunities. Successful strategies are those that are carefully tailored to meet the diverse needs of your particular manufacturing business. Although every approach must be unique, certain digital marketing strategies work particularly well in manufacturing.

Technical and solution-focused content

In manufacturing, where products and services often involve complex technical details and unique value propositions, content is your primary tool to inform, educate, and distinguish your brand. Compelling content for this sector articulates technical specifications alongside clear, accessible explanations of benefits, applications, and solutions.

Multi-stakeholder and platform targeting strategies

The buying process in manufacturing typically involves a variety of stakeholders, from engineers and technical supervisors to procurement and executive teams. Each group has distinct informational needs and decision-making criteria. You need to meet each stakeholder where they are in their particular stage of the buyer journey. Multi-faceted targeting strategies, a variety of content types, and carefully considered distribution platforms are necessary to engage these diverse audiences.

After-sales support and relationship marketing

Due to the critical nature of machinery and components, after-sales support is extra important for manufacturing businesses. Nurturing digital marketing strategies that emphasise after-sales support and relationships enhances customer satisfaction and builds trust. It also supports continuous sales cycles and repeat business, a key strategy for revenue growth in the manufacturing industry.

Empower through knowledge

Educational content marketing is crucial for explaining the benefits associated with your manufactured products and solutions. Webinars, detailed guides, and thought leadership articles simplify concepts and show their business benefits. This strategy educates potential clients and positions your company as an authority in your field.
