SUMMARY: Does your organization have the right approach to content marketing? We asked 1,745 B2B marketers to tell us about the best content marketing tactics to engage and maintain their B2B audiences. See if your B2B content tactics measure up.
We asked survey participants to indicate what they believed to be the top content marketing tactics to get their audience to engage.
Our top two tactics received almost identical response levels. Use of a multichannel messaging strategy narrowly claimed the top position. Improving thought leadership earned the second position.
When an organization gains thought leadership, its audience will naturally follow them, and view them as a trusted resource. Using a multichannel messaging strategy can support thought leadership by communicating the same message across multiple mediums. This tactic also enables organizations to deliver messages to audiences via their preferred channels.
In today’s market, it is essential for all marketing to focus all communications on the buyer -- their challenges, preferences, behaviors, etc. A traditional, one-size-fits-all approach is becoming less effective as buyers continue to expect more from brands. Segmenting the delivery of content is a best practice to improve relevance and quality of communications sent to audience members -- another great way to build trust.
