Checklist Items For The B2B Content Marketing Process

Goal-oriented content planning

Every business has specific goals as to what it wants to achieve. According to these business goals, you must align your B2B content marketing goals with your B2B content marketing strategy. It is good to see if your goals are specific to your business requirements and are attainable. Depending on your content type, the content marketing manager may use a team of experts dedicated to specific tasks or hire a B2B content marketing agency.

Use a content calendar to plan promotional activities, organize the content to be published, and contain status updates and partnerships.

Right target audience

Creating buyer personas will give a better picture of the target audience. Based on the understanding of personas, you can divide your potential customers depending on specific behaviors, pain points, challenges, goals, and concerns. Through these personas, it’s easy to know what your buyers aim to reach. Plan your B2B content marketing strategy accordingly to pave the way for becoming an industry leader.

Keyword research and higher ranking on SERPs

Once you decide on the topic to create the content, it’s important to determine the keywords that should go into the blog content. SEO tools enable finding the relevant keywords for the business, products, and services offered. Using a keyword phrase at the beginning of the title of your blog post will ensure higher ranks in search engine results pages (SERPs) and generate more traffic. Long tail keywords and phrases are crucial as they make up most of the search queries.

Attribution model and conversion count

High-quality content

Once you are ready with your content ideas for your topic, formatting your content becomes crucial. Content formats may contain blogging, video, podcasting, infographics, email, visual content, and eBooks. In the case of blog posts, you can have internal links to sources providing valuable information about the content of your blog posts. While keeping your audience engaged, quality content can boost your leads and increase sales.

Content promotion tactics

Content promotion tactics help your business get noticed. Depending on the type of content, the promotion tactics vary. Some of them are marketing on social media, influencer marketing, email marketing, and paid promotion. Persons of great importance in their field, like celebrities and sportspeople, can help in influencer marketing through their endorsements and product placements. Providing the link to your landing page on social media may increase traffic to your website, and the number of email subscribers provides good statistical data on where your brand stands in the competition.

Reviewing and optimizing the results

A sales pipeline is a great way to review and optimize your business to generate better revenues for the upcoming financial years. It is a visual representative model that allows you to

  • Track and handle your sales activities, thus improving your sales process.
  • Business forecasting and analysis of sales strategies can be done.
  • You can gauge your business revenue and results for the current financial year.

Apart from the checklist mentioned above, one thing to include in your B2B content marketing strategy is your offline presence. It will gain customer leads.
