Content is King
and always will be.
Content is King! This is so true, specifically when you think about the customer buying journey in today’s always connected world. Statistics show that about 80% of the customer’s buying journey – from idea to purchase – is done online to lean more about the idea (e.g. wine weekend in Napa), evaluate different options, compare companies to deliver the desired outcome and finally get in touch with the selected provider or purchase online. During this 80% of the online journey, it is all about the content and first impressions (e.g. your website) that you created or someone else wrote about you (e.g. a review and your response).
“What helps people, helps business.”Leo Burnett
Regardless of where people are in the buying cycle, they are looking for information – they want answers and build trust with the company and their products/services to fulfill the purpose in the best possible way. Whether comparing product features or looking to solve a specific challenge – the goal is to answer those questions in a way that educates and inspires action.
