Content Marketing has a very big role to play in B2B Marketing. Content marketing is great, but many marketers fail to understand that content is just a part of the game. Good content is mandatory, yes, but without a proper strategy for marketing your content and without a defined target audience your content won’t work and give the desired results.
That’s the reason why every marketer has ‘Audience Development’ as one of the most important aspects of the marketing strategy and a core part of a business. If you are running a business and marketing a particular product or service then it’s necessary that you have a particular audience to whom you will be targeting to promote these products or services. So it won’t be wrong if i say that the need to reach a valuable audience has stayed constant throughout the ages.
Audience Development is attracting diverse people at scale toward a social object. Generally, there are two major activities involved in content marketing. Firstly, you set a well-defined target audience to whom you’re going to promote & distribute your content and Secondly, you have to convert that new audience into subscribers or attract them so that they will come back to you for fresh content.
Audience development has a very vital role to play in content marketing strategy. Audience Development is the first step in building a successful content marketing strategy followed by content creation. Getting to know the audience for your content is a complex, multi-step process.
No one’s born with the ability to understand audiences and know what they want. This knowledge never comes easy – if you want to know about your target consumers, you’ve got to dig in and do your research. Defining your target audience completely depends upon the nature and characteristics of your products or services. It’s mandatory that you match your audience and your product. For Ex. You can’t target a sports car to a middle or average income group. You want your audience to be from the upper and rich class who can easily afford a sports car.
In today’s digital world finding an audience is a lot easier than it used to be earlier. Through real-time commenting and social media, writers, marketers and content producers have better insight into who they’re communicating with than ever before. The Internet and social media allow consumers to tailor their experiences to suit their interests. Customer experience is becoming crucial to successful marketing and it often has nothing to do with age, gender, location or even income.
The audience development part of your marketing is making sure you’re creating products your audience is asking for while acting as a resource to those consumers – completely free of charge. Spend time defining your buyer personas in as much detail as possible. Dispense with traditional demographic definitions and consider how special interests and the customer experience influence how your target audience consumes content. It’s a time-consuming project, so start with one or two key personas and work from there. Over time you’ll be rewarded for your efforts as your content becomes more relevant and more targeted to the people you’re trying to reach.
Creating good content and its promotional plan can help the business reach a wider audience, attract more leads, and convert them into customers. Sharing content help boost credibility and establishes your business as an authority on your subject.
