Customer Communities: Building Advocacy Through Customer Content
How to Leverage Customer Communities for Content Marketing Greatness
60%-70% of content created by B2B organizations goes unused.
Content marketing isn’t just a buzzword anymore. It’s a priority for most marketing professionals today, yet a lot of organizations just aren’t getting it right. And there are a lot of reasons for this: maybe the content is product or brand centric (as opposed to customer centric). Maybe the content lacks relevance. Or maybe organizations are still using the old approach of traditional advertising: sharing a deluge of content with a mass audience in the hopes that a small percentage will find it relevant.
So how do you deliver content that customers want to read? That creates advocates and nurtures brand affinity? You go straight to the customer.
