A good content marketing funnel is a short route to the highest ROI on your content. And what business doesn’t want the best return on investment from their marketing dollars!
A content marketing funnel is like a sales funnel that shows your prospects and leads the steps they need to take before making a purchase. Such leads are accumulated over time and then transformed into potential customers by “funneling” them through various forms of content.
A B2B marketing funnel is a model of a consumer’s experience, divided into distinct segments from awareness to retention. The specifics of your funnel may vary depending on what you sell and who your target market is. A B2B marketing funnel is fundamentally different from B2C marketing funnels. B2C marketing strategy is largely brand-driven and targets a large number of consumers. Unlike B2B marketing, which depends on rational decisions made by the business leaders, the purchase is emotionally driven.
Content marketing generates leads at triple the rate of pay-per-click advertising. The best type of search engine optimization you can do is content marketing. Content marketing is a powerful way to increase exposure to your brand by increasing the number of indexed websites, external links, and opportunities to spread the word about your brand. It is like leaving breadcrumbs of information on the internet to help you find potential customers.
Ultimately, the success of your product depends on your ability to identify the audiences and their pain points in each stage of the sales funnel and to learn how to fill in the details about them. To do this, you need to ask questions, conduct interviews, and surveys, etc.
As a B2B brand, to attract more leads and spend less pursuing them, you should leverage content marketing.
