Content Marketing Conquered – How to Build Your Inbound Marketing Funnel

Marketing is impossible without great content. Whether it’s copy, images, audio, or video there is a hungry audience online keen to learn all about you and what you do best.

These practical workshops will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to turn customer insight into effective, impactful online content. We take you through the steps you need to take to become a serious, competent content creator.

Communications | Advanced | 90 mins

Course Overview

Three practical and interactive workshops on content marketing will show you how to understand your customers’ buyer behaviour, refine your online value proposition and key differentiators, and the different content you need for each stage of the inbound journey.

You’ll learn how to grow as a content marketer and work effectively with others in your organisation to develop your customer insight, clarify your points of difference, and build the foundations for lasting success.

Session one – The Destination: How to create content that reaches your customer’s heart, and mind

It’s not enough to think like a customer, we need to get inside their head to truly understand what motivates them and makes them tick. Unless you’re able to spend time with your customers, you can only make assumptions about what they want and the solutions they require. This session will take you through the process of characterising your customer step by step, until you feel confident about what they want to achieve.

If you don’t get to talk to your customers directly, we have several strategies to help you find the answers to these questions, before starting to develop Buyer Personas of your own.  

Session two – Get Ready: From ‘top of mind’ to ‘top of preference’: how to become the clear choice for customers.

This session will help you discover how you are unique. As Sainsburys said: “Our Values Make Us Different”. It’s as true for businesses, charities, agencies, corporations and sole traders as it is for us as people. Each has a personality and identity. But it is how you apply your values and deliver the benefit of them to your customers that is unique.

If you can turn your values into the value they deliver to your customers, then you’re really onto something. It’s time to show them what you do and why only you can do it.  

Session three – The Inventory: How to design a Content Marketing plan that keeps you sane

If you have been marketing your business, products and services for some time, you will have a back-catalogue to harvest for content ideas and online content to share more widely.

This includes any digital content assets, but may also include offline, traditional marketing materials – even old brochures and reports. The efficient content marketer will look for opportunities to re-use and repurpose older content, or ‘hero’ assets like video, podcasts, webinars, online events and e-books.
