It’s a noisy world. Despite best efforts to speak directly to an audience with content and campaigns designed to capture their attention, too frequently those campaigns will fall on deaf ears.
If you feel like you’ve experienced this kind of challenge, there is a solution – one that’s been around for much longer than the terms “content / engagement marketing” have existed, but not a lot of companies have given it the time and energy it requires. The solution is simple – Become part of the conversation. Then you’re no longer talking at your audience, but talking with them. Becoming a thought leader is the most efficient way to achieve the kind of loyalty and brand value that helps you stand out from the crowd.
Establishing you and your team as thought leaders is extremely valuable. There are challenges to measuring your thought leadership efforts, but looking at the right metrics prove what is common sense – when someone provides valuable information, they become a trusted advisor. And when the time comes, those advisors are the ones business leaders will turn to.
You may not have named it “thought leadership”, but you’ve likely participated in efforts to establish both your credibility…
Targeting content to the right audience is a vital piece of any comprehensive thought leadership strategy. The industries you serve may be looking for your guidance and expertise, but they don’t know where to find it. Creating educational content tailored for that vertical and getting it placed in an industry-specific trade will not only get you the right kind of attention from prospective clients, but it will also bolster your credibility and increase your brand’s value in the marketplace. We’ve helped our clients get noticed by their targeted verticals – here are some of their recent features:
