Create Content

Content is what drives your lead generation in your customers journey to purchase. therefore create educational content on your blog. Content informs, engages and helps moves your leads down on your buying cycle.

Remember that leads look for different information (content) at different stages. Have a clear understanding with your content writer on what to publish and when to publish. Create content for the various stages in your sales funnel. Create more general interest content to draw people into your funnel.
