Manufacturing Marketing FAQs
Industrial Content Marketing FAQs
We don't jump into content creation right off the bat
We'll take the time to develop a content marketing strategy
The strategy will be documented and refined over time, based on tracking reports and benchmarks
It requires active participation of every stakeholder and a complete buy-in from you for it to be successful
It is a process that takes time to produce sustainable results
Content drives the inbound marketing engine. Either you need to have the resources to create the content yourself or let us create the content for you.
Together, we will review site analytics and measurement reports regularly.
While industrial content marketing takes time to gel and produce repeatable results, that doesn’t mean you have to wait 6 to 9 months to see any improvements. You will see incremental results within 60 days after full implementation. Typically, you’ll see more traffic, lower bounce rates, and content downloads.
Install a Content Management System (CMS. We prefer WordPress)
You may require subscription to Marketing Automation or an email marketing service
Integrate your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system (We’ll help you if needed, and there is an additional fee for this.)
It is not a short journey or a “Band-Aid” fix for lead generation problems or slow sales.
You shouldn’t expect quick or instant results.
There are no tricks to gaming the system (Search engines).
It does not run on autopilot (Marketing Automation also requires a qualified person to manage it).
It is not a one-off marketing campaign.
It is not a hands-off strategy.

Industrial Website Design FAQs
DIY Websites or templates are a quick and inexpensive way to cobble together a Website. However, there are some drawbacks and issues that you may run into with one of these sites.
Engineers and industrial buyers expect more than an informational website from their vendors. It is hard to achieve that with a cookie-cutter template
Responsive web design requires technical know-how and skills
Optimizing the site (SEO) requires keeping up with Google’s constantly changing algorithms and knowledge of Google-approved white hat techniques
Writing webpage content that will persuade an industrial audience to take action involves understanding buyer behavior and their decision-making process in long sales cycles
It takes time to plan and ask the right questions to develop an industrial website that fits your sales process and turns into a productive sales tool
Coding is not the same as marketing

Note: You do not own the rights to stock images from our library unless you expressly authorize us to buy them on your behalf for your exclusive use.
