At Nuanced Media, we believe in long-term strategy. Helping you identify the ‘why’ that drives everything you do is essential to building your business. We know that there is much more to your company than simply the day to day activities, and we want to help you share this with your customers. In order to embrace the driving force behind your mission, and connect with the ideal audience, we advocate for Thought Leadership.
This method of attracting the perfect market is one of the pillars of Inbound Marketing. Publishing the right content to the right people in the right place at the right time is easier said than done. However, when executed correctly, you will become the authority in your field, and potential clients will be drawn to your company naturally and consistently. Taking this approach to connecting with potential customers creates marketing that people want to see, rather than what is forced upon them.
Fostering Thought Leadership requires the following steps:
- Creating unique and meaningful content;
- Tailoring content to various buying and awareness stages;
- Personalizing information for the specific wants and needs of viewers;
- Meeting and connecting with people through channels where they are already present;
- Integrating the overall process including creation, publishing, monitoring, and analytics.
Inbound Marketing Success Factors:
Traditional marketing pushes content at an audience regardless of their level of interest (or lack thereof). The result of this is spending a lot of money showing your content to people who don’t care to see it, nor do they have any interest in purchasing your product or service now, if ever. The inbound marketing approach waits for your customers to come to you, when they have already identified a need or a pain for themselves that needs solving. Not only is this audience already searching for what you provide, you are only spending money targeting those who may likely transform into a sale. Your money is used more effectively, and your audience is happier with the content they are being provided with.
Easier to Absorb
Advertising has gotten a bad reputation, especially in the digital space. It seems our inboxes are full of spam, our websites full of pop-ups, even our music videos are constantly interrupted. With this breed of in-your-face advertising being so prevalent, it is up to us, as inbound marketers, to find a way to spread the word about what we offer, without being a pain or interruption to our potential audience. Creating content that is helpful or entertaining, and then promoting it in places where our potential audience already visit to search for information, is the heart of thought leadership. .
Custom content is the method by which your company shares your expertise in your field. This can be through blogs, infographics, educational videos, and other types of articles. Every business interaction is about exchanging one value for another. Your custom content adds value to a customer’s experience, and in return, you can ask for their information in order to further connect with them. In this exchange, no money has exchanged hands, but the relationship has already started to grow based on trust and value..
