B2B Content Marketing - Speaking Topic
Quality online content is a currency: you can buy people's attention with it. It's no longer enough to just spruik features at a price anymore through your website. People look for and expect to find useful, non-sales orientated information online well before they're ready to make a final purchasing decision. Furthermore, the higher the ticket price and the greater the implications of making the wrong purchasing decision, the more research they'll undertake.
B2B businesses must step in and be the ones to publish this non-sales orientated information to the web, attracting qualified buyers to their own websites. And in doing so use the attention opportunity to position themselves as the people in the know (the self-appointed subject matter experts).
This speaking topic has wide appeal to B2B businesses from sectors as diverse as software, agriculture and engineering. It is available for delivery across Australia.
SPEAKING TOPIC OVERVIEW
Most B2B businesses wouldn't consider themselves to be in the publishing game, but publish online they must, because that's where their fish are feeding. Buyers now undertake extensive research online in an effort to know everything there is to know about their considered purchase - and finally to put a short-list together of suitable vendors. To publish layers of rich and detailed information about all the in's and out's of your products or services acts as a magnet for potential buyers.
Non-sales related publishing online is known as content marketing, and has been around in various forms for over 100 years. The predominance of search engines and the permanency of online content however has given it all new meaning for lead generation.
