Your business relies on your marketing to attract new customers and encourage your existing customer base to come back. For your marketing strategies to be effective, you need to have content that engages your customers. So what can you do to create content that keeps your customers engaged?
Inspire Them to Action
The whole point of marketing is to convince consumers to do something, specifically something that will result in your business earning a profit. If your marketing content isn’t moving people to act, it’s not doing its job properly. All of your marketing content should have a call to action (CTA) of some sort. The tricky part is crafting an effective CTA. Take a closer look at your marketing content and make sure that each CTA you have is optimally designed to inspire your customers to act.
There are multiple formats you can use when creating marketing content. If you aren’t using video content in your marketing yet, your business can benefit by doing so. More than half of customers prefer video over other types of marketing. Marketing videos have a unique capability to put forward a great deal of information in a relatively short time, all while being engaging, even entertaining. With one video you can showcase the personality of your brand, your products and services, and any other relevant information your customers need to know. Plus, the combination of visual and auditory input that video content provides can help you be more memorable.
Emotions are a huge part of what makes us human. When we feel something emotionally, we tend to create mental connections to those events. On top of that, people tend to shop with their emotions. Therefore, if you want to engage your customers with your marketing content, it makes sense to create content that’s going to resonate with your customers’ emotions. Find ways to make your customers feel something positive, whether that’s pleasantly surprised, happy, or amused. Ads that make your customers laugh can be especially memorable and are more likely to be shared, increasing the scope of your reach. If you choose to use humor, take the time to understand what types of humor will help you achieve the results you’re after.
Keeping your customers engaged through your marketing content is essential for the success of your marketing strategies. Create content that inspires them to act, take advantage of video marketing, and make sure to leverage the emotions of your audience. Doing so will put you on the path to creating engaging marketing content that will help you attract customers, both new and old alike.
