Welcome to another episode of Behind the Madness, where the focus is on business growth, working smarter, and the core principles of business that unlock peak performance. Our latest podcast explores a topic that's crucial for any B2B business: producing content that doesn't just fill space but actively drives conversions.
The Challenge of Consistent Content Creation
James Roberts, the founder of Method, candidly shares, that maintaining a podcast while running a small business can be daunting. But it's this challenge that brings us to the importance of high-value content. What does that mean? It's content that your audience finds not just interesting, but indispensable. It's the kind of material they save, come back to, and ultimately guides their buying decisions.
High-value content defined
High-value content is not about the quantity, it's the quality that counts. James and Jamie discuss the idea that what is high-value to one person might be noise to another. This content is tailored, it's relevant, and it strikes a chord with its intended audience. For B2B businesses, it's not just about the sell; it's about educating, engaging, and solving problems.
Tips for creating content that converts
- Know your audience: Your buyer persona is your compass. Understand where they spend their time and what they value.
- Educate before selling: Lead with education. Provide value before you introduce your product. If your audience sees you as a source of knowledge, they are more likely to trust your recommendations.
- Be consistent: Delivering content regularly keeps you at the forefront of your audience's mind, but don't sacrifice quality for frequency.
- Engage through storytelling: People may not remember stats, but they will remember a good story. Use your content to tell a story that resonates with your audience.
- Use data wisely: Analytics can tell you what works and what doesn't. Use this to refine your strategy.
- Involve your sales team: They are on the front lines and know the customer's pain points. Use their insights to guide your content creation.
Engaging with purpose
Jamie highlights that engagement is key, and that high-value content is not necessarily about being omnipresent on all social media platforms, but about being present where it matters most to your audience. That’s where you should allocate your efforts and resources.
Quality over quantity
James insists that it's not about churning out content but about providing value consistently. The best content strategy is one that strikes the right balance between quantity and quality, ensuring that each piece of content serves a purpose and meets a need.
We urge you to take the time to define what high-value content looks like for your business. Episode 33 of Behind the Madness isn't just about listening - it's about taking what you've learned and applying it to your marketing strategy.
