Originally posted on September 4, 2020, this post was refreshed in April of 2022. Industrial companies like manufacturers are becoming more invested in digital advertising and content marketing to drive traffic to their website. Along with that focus on generating website traffic should come strategies for connecting with qualified traffic—capturing visitors' information so that you can start to build a relationship with them. By collecting details like your visitor’s name, email address, and the company they work for, you can input this information into your CRM, monitor their interactions, and follow up much more effectively.
Tracking the results of marketing spending is an area that many industrial B2B companies struggle with. Failure to do so makes it hard for you to understand what's working, whether you are investing in the right marketing channels and generating a positive ROI, and hampers your ability to attract and convert new customers.
An effective marketing campaign creates results. But how good are those results? What outcomes did they lead to? Every credit union marketing campaign needs to be analyzed to determine effectiveness. No matter how creative, interesting, or responsive it is, you have to ask what came of that campaign. Did it reach the goals you desired? Was it worth the investment? By analyzing the results of any campaign, you can then make decisions on how to further improve it to achieve an even better ROI. Analyzing campaign success leads to even better results next time. It also allows you to be more selective in your marketing.
Search engine optimization, or SEO, is a recommended strategy for all companies, including manufacturing businesses. With SEO strategies in place, you can gain more organic traffic, quality leads, brand awareness, and, ultimately, an increase in revenue.
When credit union marketing is discussed, the focus is often on how to attract new members. In doing so, nurturing current members can fall to the wayside. However, in reality, it’s crucial to keep your current members engaged and make them aware of products and services that will meet their financial needs.
Manufacturing marketers often have access to a plethora of existing content, and there can be huge benefits to mining that content for marketing purposes. Whether it's a PDF or engineering rendering, sales brochures or other product information, this content can be repurposed, so it shows up in search results and helps your ideal client find your content and company easier.
COVID-19 has impacted every industry, from the perspective of the consumer and the company. As behavior changes, credit unions are being forced to adjust their marketing spend to be both efficient and effective.
Digital advertising is one of the most cost-effective and impactful ways to reach your credit union’s target audience. Unfortunately, when implementing an advertising strategy, there are various ways credit unions tend to waste money.
