How to Create Compelling Content For Your Customers

Share This TechTip

Creating content that resonates with your customers is important for building lasting relationships. You understand your customers’ issues and have the resources to help them. It is important to use your voice and communicate efficiently. At Catalyit, we’ve explored and refined various strategies to engage our audience. Here are notes on creating compelling content for your customers, drawing on our own experiences and successes.

Step Outside the Office (Conference Room)

Forget traditional brainstorming in the office. At Catalyit, we’ve unleashed our creativity through ‘Jam Sessions.’ These sessions are dynamic, free-flowing brainstorming periods where the only rule is to stay on topic—most of the time. We draw inspiration from various industries, adopting practices from giants like Apple, Axios, The New York Times, and ESPN. Our goal? To foster an environment where groundbreaking ideas can flourish. Remember, great ideas are not industry-specific.

Empower Every Team Member

Often, people underestimate their ability to generate content, believing they need more skills to write or create engaging videos. Tools like Grammarly have been instrumental in refining communication skills for many, including myself. Identify the tools that best complement your strengths and leverage them.

It’s crucial to acknowledge and play to the unique strengths of your team members. Not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, and that’s perfectly fine. Encourage them to share their expertise in ways that feel natural to them.

Define Your Success

Success doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all definition. For Catalyit, success means engaging our subscribers so effectively that they return to our website daily. It’s about creating a strong bond to prompt the subscriber to take the suggested actions. Success for you can start with something as simple as having customers and prospects read your blog or share it.

Purposeful Content

Creating content for the sake of it is a common trap. Always have a clear reason behind each piece of content you produce. Ask yourself, “Does this matter to my customer?” This mindset ensures that your content remains relevant and valuable to your audience.

Have a Plan

Success in content creation comes from careful planning. You can’t rely on improvisation to communicate your message effectively. It’s important to have a weekly and monthly plan. Planning doesn’t mean setting your strategy in stone months in advance. Stay flexible and ready to adjust as needed, keeping a balanced and prioritized approach to your content.

Three Simple Rules

Finally, here are a few simple rules:

  1. Be natural, concise, and relatable.
  2. Edit rigorously to refine your message.
  3. Remember, compelling content wins every time.

Your goal is to engage your customers with authentic, impactful content that speaks to their needs and interests. By embracing these principles, you can elevate your content creation strategy and forge deeper connections.
