The customer journey can be a long road. It is not that it is a difficult drive however some navigation is required.
Like most trips, you will want a co-pilot with you along the way. A guide help you look for landmarks and most importantly, stay focused. This is where custom content should be thought of as your road-trip partner. The one you call up and say, “I’m coming to pick you up and we won’t be home for a while”.
Why is custom content so important? Because your audience would rather be “spoken to” rather than “talked at”. Custom content can be thoughtful, entertaining, conversational and if implemented correctly – a key building block in your marketing strategies.
Here are four reasons why your custom content should be sitting in the front seat.
Fosters Creativity & Collaboration:
Anyone in your organization can create it. We all have ideas, perspectives and anecdotes – so use them to your advantage by sharing them. Custom content is the perfect vehicle to do so.
Relaxes and Sets the Tone:
Custom content demonstrates, the human side to your brand, one they can feel “comfortable with” and not “skeptical of”.
Builds Brand to Audience Engagement:
If your content has relevance or significant meaning – you are likely to earn the audience’s attention, trust and engagement.
Enhances Customer Retention:
Remain thoughtful, dedicated and continue to produce custom content. Consumers do business with brands they know, like and trust. Your custom content started this journey – show your commitment and keep publishing.
Custom content – your best friend on the customer journey. Buckle up, enjoy your ride, and don’t forget to send a postcard or two along the way.
