Driving Customer Connections with Content

<strong>Driving Customer Connections with Content</strong>

As all Brands know, it takes a great deal of effort and money to acquire customers. Customer connections, the process of gaining new customers, is about attracting prospects to your business and then persuading them to buy your specific product or service.

Implementing a customer acquisition strategy involves targeting consumers who are unaware of your Brand or products and services, providing exposure, building trust and influencing purchasing decisions. Successful customer acquisition strategies combine sales, marketing and more to increase Brand awareness and inform new customers. Some examples include email marketing, using a CRM (customer relationship management) platform, sharing great content and providing superb customer service. All lead to gaining visibility, earning a good reputation and ultimately, increasing sales.

A good customer acquisition strategy is constantly evolving to keep up with market changes and the latest trends. It is usually based on data that helps Brands better understand customers and potential customers, including their age, gender and how they like to spend their money. However, in today’s competitive market studies show that image and personality are just as important as quality as consumers have become more focused on the value of Brands from which they are buying.

Content and Brand Recognition

Brand recognition as an asset is relatively new. In the 1950s, business success and consumer choice were defined more by the quality and value of a product or service than the name. In the 1960s, advertising defined Brand identities through marketing. Brand names began to represent certain desired features like sleek design, durability and fast service. Today, consumers rarely make purchasing decisions without considering Brand identity and meaning since it helps determine value. 

As a result, content has become critical for establishing Brand value, and therefore, an essential part of a successful customer acquisition strategy. It is highly effective method for reaching the right audience with the right message to persuade them that a particular Brand is the one they need to know about and buy.

Content marketing involves using online outlets such as blogs and social media platforms to give potential customers insight into a business as well as its products or services. Importantly, it can be continually enhanced by offering subscriber-only discounts and other incentives to make sure that customers come back.

The Value of Interactive Content

As the digital era continues to grow, more Brands are elevating their content marketing activities to include interactive content marketing. By using content to engage consumer participation, it takes the purchasing experience from passive to active. Not only does interactive content allow Brands to reach their potential customers faster, it is more efficient for lead generation and customer acquisition because it provides a more exciting approach for the consumer. The combination of content and experience is not only educational but entertaining at the same time. Additionally, unlike static content found in videos, livestreams, and blogs, interactive content allows for Brands to receive feedback from consumers, which often leads to better metrics, more advanced interaction, and increased sales.

According to the latest media landscape report by dentsu China, the country’s domestic consumer demand will improve this year. Moreover, the digital media market share in China will continue to expand through next year, with the vast majority of local advertising spending to come from digital media.
