How to align your content strategy with your customer personas, and your sales pipeline
Phil McGuin - Demand Generation Director
The value of content can be measured in lots of different ways, and many organisations will have their own goals and ambitions for what they want content to achieve.
Some may use content to deliver new sales leads, improve customer satisfaction or enhance their brand visibility. But for all the benefits we see from content, expressing the contribution it makes to a business in ‘pounds and pence’ remains one of the biggest hurdles for marketers.
Phil’s masterclass will offer a step-by-step guide to building out your content strategy by highlighting the three key elements to feeding your sales pipeline:
- Buying cycle
- Content map
- Content personas
Phil has over 20 years’ experience in the areas of online marketing and performance based lead generation and has worked both client and agency side including extensive experience in the private sector as Head of Marketing for a B2B software provider.
