Our partners share educational content with our readers. This isn’t a “shove-down-your-throat” hard sell. We don’t believe in that “disruptive” form of marketing and our readers don’t like it either.

The other, most important factor is TRUST! Our readers trust our word.

Some points to make about how we’ve shifted as consumers and how make a decision to buy products or use services:

The more content we share about your business, the more it positions you as a thought-leader in your industry, plus boosts your website’s ranking in search engines. Our content isn’t about sharing a promotion, it isn’t about doing the “hard sell” to our visitors. People don’t want to be sold to – they want to be educated. As consumers, we do our research first, before we ever pick up the phone. Our new word of mouth – social media and reviews. The more you have someone backing your product or talking positively about your business, the more people will recognize your brand and the solutions you offer!

Here’s a quick breakdown on how consumers do their research and the questions they ask during each stage in a buyer’s journey:

  • Awareness: (searching these questions online to find out more about their problem)
      • My toilet isn’t flushing like it used to, why is that? 
      • My car doesn’t have power going up a hill.
      • What is my house worth today?
  • Consideration: (starting to figure out what companies provide solutions to their problem)
      • What plumbing companies are near me and do they service emergency requests?
      • Do the car mechanics near me offer loaner cars if i have to leave my car at the shop?
      • What realtors in my area offer a free home evaluation?
  • Decision: (realizing they can’t fix it themselves and/or they need to talk to someone more about their problems)
    • Referrals for Plumbing companies in my area.
    • Who has the best customer care service for car repair in Westtown Township?
    • Set up an appointment with a local real estate agent.

 

When you have a better understanding on how your target market goes through their decision making process, you can better develop content that will help steer them to you at each stage. This is how we help our partners create amazing content that delivers results.

Website Design and Strategy – A website design can be pretty, but does it serve a purpose? This is where it all begins. Your website needs to WORK for you! Are you gaining leads?

Content Marketing – If you aren’t gaining solid leads from your website, you have no content marketing strategy and you likely aren’t blogging. The way people buy products or use services has changed. It’s your job to be the thought leader in your industry and provide education to your prospects. It’s our job to bring those prospects down the marketing funnel through awareness, consideration and decision buying stages.

Sales & Marketing Support – Are your sales and marketing aligned? Have you put your toes in the social selling water? Even if your brick and mortar, these tactics need to be aligned so that every point of contact you make with a prospect is a delightful experience.
