Developing a content marketing strategy in a niche market

According to the B2B Content Marketing Benchmarks for 2017, 61% of companies that are good at content marketing have a documented content marketing strategy. For companies that are less successful with content marketing, this percentage is only 13%. The same report states that 72% of successful organisations indicate that their strategy plays an important role in their success. In short, it is time to determine your content marketing strategy! If you have read our previous article (and make sure you do), you know that customers don’t care about you, your products or your services; they only really care about themselves and their own needs. Within your niche market, whether it is geomatics, hydrography or engineering, you have the knowledge to provide them with relevant and valuable content that they actually want to consume!

How to determine the success of your marketing campaigns?

When setting up and executing marketing campaigns, you want them to be as good as possible. And when it is finished, you want to determine whether it has been a success. If it’s not, you want to know what could have been the problem and what can be improved for next time. Predetermining concrete marketing objectives can help you enormously with this. It provides guidance and forces you to think carefully about the message, the target group and the required impact.

What is a marketing funnel and how do you use it?

Did you know that only 2% of the purchases are made at the first contact moment? This percentage is even only 10% at the fourth contact moment. On average, a customer needs between 5 and 8 contact moments before a purchase is made. These moments together form the customer journey and this journey is different for every customer. That is why it is very important to respond well to this with your communication, so that potential customers get the right information at the right time. The process towards a purchase is called the marketing and sales funnel.
