“Bring as much value as possible, bring increase to people, give them everything they’re looking for and they’ll come back to you.” – Michael Johnson
Today, we’re talking about the best content for each stage of the buyer’s journey. The buyer’s journey is the process buyers go through to become aware of, consider and evaluate, and decide to purchase a new product or service. In this episode, Tyler and Michael walk through the journey giving you advice on the best types of content to put out for each buyer stage.
- The 3 stages of the buyer’s journey: Awareness>Consideration>Decision
- Awareness Stage:
- Educational content
- Ex: eBooks, guides, video guides, etc
- If you create educational content, don’t withhold any information from the customer
- There is an exchange of value on both ends
- Consideration Stage:
- Educational content
- Ex: checklists, case studies, etc.
- Make sure the content is not overly long to where no one will read it
- The content you’re giving away can have your branding + logo
- The content will likely get shared with other people if customers find it useful
- High threshold VS Low threshold offers
- High offers are bigger forms to gather more info
- Low offers are small forms to get only an email for an eBook
- Buyers in the awareness or consideration stages are not going to take any high threshold offers, but only low threshold offers instead
- Decision Stage:
- Ex: consultations, exploratory phone calls, intro meetings, etc.
- Make sure it’s easy for buyers to navigate your site and contact you
- Still continue to offer educational content regardless of if they are ready to decide or not
