  • Where: Bellevue, WA

  • Presentation Description: Across the A/E/C industry, your client’s purchase journey has completely changed in the past 5-10 years. Where buyers used to contact sales staff early in the B2B purchasing and decision-making process, they can now complete multiple stages of traditional marketing funnels without ever speaking with anyone from your company.Companies need to focus on putting the right materials in the client’s hands long before the proposal stage, and content marketing is the proactive way to do that. For many companies it is common to invest less money in their website than they do for a single marketing or business development professional, and yet their website delivers key information to hundreds or thousands of prospects on a daily basis.”

  • Event: School of Visual Concepts Full Day Workshop

That “stuff-it-down-their-throats” approach no longer works in the era of thousands of two-way online channels. Content marketing, on the other hand, is about creating and distributing useful, relevant, valuable, (and even, fun) content that your prospects want to consume while they build a relationship with your company. Another major benefit to content marketing is that it is the cornerstone of an effective SEO strategy, so it pays dividends as people curious about your company’s field are for more likely to find their way to your website.
