Industrial content marketing for lead generation
Follow the best practices in industrial content marketing for generating high quality inbound leads, accelerating pipelines and increasing sales
Traditional marketing is no longer as effective in complex industrial sales
Industrial content marketing for manufacturers, distributors and engineering companies has become the cornerstone of digital marketing for lead generation. Today’s industrial buyers are in self-serve and self-select mode. They remain mainly invisible for a large portion of their buying journey and will engage with Sales only when they are ready. This makes it very difficult for salespeople to get in front of their audience, be it face time or on the phone.
Industrial content marketing must attract the right audience, capture high-quality leads and set the table for Sales to have more productive conversations instead of spending their time in blind prospecting at the top of the funnel.
Use the full potential of content marketing to capture Marketing Qualified Leads (MQLs), qualify and nurture them into Sales Qualified Leads (SQLs) before handing them off to Sales to convert them into RFQs and wins.
