Smarter Marketing Series: 3 Components of Engaging Content [VIDEO]

If content is at the center of your B2B marketing strategy, then there’s one question that should be constantly on your mind: how do I create content that drives engagement?

Mathew Sweezey takes on this question in today’s episode of our Smarter Marketing video series, and shares three components to consider when creating engaging content:

Authentic Copy

  • Be sure copy is authentic and helpful, as well as relevant to your particular audience
  • Don’t be afraid to add some personality to your content—check out Wistia to see a great example of a company showing off their personality through content

Original Image

  • Use an engaging and original image to promote your content; adding visuals to content greatly increases the likelihood that it will be engaged with via social media and other channels

Stage-based CTA

  • Make sure your content includes a clear call to action—even if it’s just letting them know where they can find further information
  • Don’t be too pushy; your call to action should align with their stage of the sales cycle. If they’re in stage one, a CTA to engage with a sales rep may not be effective.
