Checklist for effective B2B content marketing

November 28, 2021

Your newsletter reaches thousands of companies, almost half of them click on the promotional code, they later read a popular blog article, listen to the podcast, some even provide you feedback. The effort is rewarded, the brand is increasingly recognized. That is the perfect picture for B2B content, on which the entire creative team has invested their brains and hearts. But how to get on the highway leading to this effective content marketing? Here are our tips:

# Review and update your keywords – Investing time and efforts in this direction is worth it, especially when you consider what keywords use your main competitors. SEO audit of your industry companions and defining key expressions that attract traffic should be a top priority for the content marketing of any B2B company. Effective messaging should be integrated into any visual or linguistic piece of content created.

# Check the synergy – If you offer outdated or inadequate topics to the clients, your failure will pull you down. Consider how to approach the new topics so that you can make sure they match the content needed from your customers. It is also appropriate to ask for feedback. The synergy between your and your customers’ business organizations, as well as synergy between the particular elements of your content marketing, will intensify the effect and move you closer to reaching your goals.

# Assure credibility – Using updated and precise data and statistics, analysis from well-known experts will not warrant, but definitely will help your readers trust your content. Collaborating with and providing the point of view of influential industry chambers and non-competitive companies can be a powerful tool for effective B2B content marketing. 

# Ensure good readability – Is it worth it for B2B companies to invest resources in SEO without generating significant results? Of course, the question is rhetorical. Sometimes even content that is valuable to customers fails to drive them into action. A possible reason could be the difficulty of reading or processing the text. That usually results from incorrect grammar, the use of awkward sentences, lack of consistency. What a pity for the worthy information!

# Assess with measurable metrics – Tracking your bounce rate, CTR (click-through rate), and total time spent on content is the best way to analyze whether each of the particular content pieces of your visual and linguistic texts is working. It will also define which ineffective measures need to be discontinued. Identify the overall effectiveness by reviewing additional online KPIs such as website traffic, domain authority, feedback, and keyword rankings.

The checklist allows – ticking the ticks one after the other – to provide relevant, engaging, and aesthetically pleasing content. Applying it, you minimize the wasted writing resources and focus on establishing meaningful relations with your customers.
