Any business would want to break even and reap profits at a faster pace. Especially, if you are running an online business or an ecommerce store! You would want to turn your audience into prospects and eventually turn your prospects into customers and customers into repeat customers.
So how would you make this business proposition possible? All this boils down to having an effective content strategy in place.
In a broader sense this would narrow down to conversion of online searches into transactions. This translates to indentifying the intent or purpose of an online search. The intent would vary from just knowing about something, help find a solution to a problem or execute a purchase or a sale. The transactional aspect is the one which any business would like to tap into.
An effective strategy would be focus on a typical buyer journey that helps you weave the content in a manner that leads to conversions.
Understanding the Buyer Journey
A typical buyer journey would comprise of these three phases
- Discovery and Understanding of a product or service
- Analysis and evaluation
- Consideration and transacting the purchase
In a discovery phase the buyer might not be immediately interested in buying the product. So you must focus on content that educates the user of the pros and cons and how the product or services is going to benefit them in the long run. Here you must restrict yourself in providing educational content such as Blogs, Videos, Info graphics, questioners and solutions to understand the intent of the user.
In an Analysis and evaluation mode you can get a little more aggressive taking them to specific landing pages and dishing out case studies, product demos, webinars, white papers, newsletters etc.
Once you have worked your way through these two phases you would have essentially built trust and made great inroads in striking a deal, making a transaction or providing a service. This is where you can target your user with buying keywords.
In essence your SEO optimized content plays a vital role in garnering organic traffic and completing a successful buyer journey.
