B2B companies need compelling content that educates and informs buyers while differentiating the company’s ideas and offerings from those of their competitors. But many B2B firms struggle to develop consistently high-quality content. Why? We’ve found the three biggest reasons are:
- Experts have trouble dedicating enough time to content development when clients or customers take priority, so the content generated may not reflect their or the company’s best thinking.
- The company doesn’t have a structured approach to developing thought leadership content, leading to lots of wasted time and missed opportunities to strengthen the end product.
- The firm simply lacks the right skills in house to turn what’s in experts’ heads into books, white papers, articles, and research studies that command buyers’ attention.
