Content is the king. Examine whether your content is supporting your company’s sales process.
In today’s digital marketplace, the potential buyers of your products or services; research, consult and educate themselves before approaching you. To help you “stand out and build trust” on-line; your credibility, expertise and thought leadership has to reflect in the published marketing content. Also, in the final stages of the buying cycle, through interactions with sales person, the buyer assesses your company – evaluates viability, and working relationships. They assess the value add you do as their partner and deciding how much they trust you, and the sales content has to optimize to enable sales to win the deal. As a result, relevant and engaging content is key, as it impacts lead generation, lead nurturing and lead scoring, as it fuels:

The content audit is a detailed analysis and evaluation of your firm’s current sales and marketing content and assessing whether it’s relevant, actionable, targetable, trackable, and reuseable. We do so by:
- Inventory checks of your content and how it stands up against your company’s ‘brand guidelines, style guides, and voice and tone.’
- Map content to the buyer’s interest in the buying journey
- Identify content gaps
- Find outdated content
- Find reuseable content
- Review how your content is placed vis-à-vis competition
- Check if your content is optimized and in sync with modern SEO best practices
- Evaluate how readers engage with your current content on the blog and social media
It depends upon the content volume to be evaluated, and typically requires 3 – 8 weeks for completion.
