Instead, check whether your marketing assets match your high-intent leads. A few simple tweaks can make all the difference.

Understanding keywords, putting the right content out at the right time and using personalisation are tried-and-tested strategies to win sales. We’ve laid out some more info below.

The power of keywords

High-intent keywords show a lead has the intention of buying soon.Matching your assets to the keywords you’ve identified gives them the information they need to bring them closer to a sale.

Long-tail keywords are your friend. Simply put, they’re the more detailed questions or phrases a customer is searching for. They have a lower search volume, but higher intent. These keywords give you an opportunity to discover new niches nobody else has answered yet.

For example, ‘project management tool’ might be a head term with lots of monthly searches, but it’s very general. ‘How to use project management tools for budget planning’ is much more specific and suggests a lead has a defined problem they’re ready to solve.

A good marketing strategy, and quality collateral to go with it, only works if you understand your customer journey. Knowing what makes your buyers tick can give you valuable insight into what to offer when.

Consider the stage your buyer is at. Offering a discount right away might cost you more when a quality piece of content, like a blog or social post, would do the job instead. Further along the funnel is the best time to bring in product demos and discounts to seal the deal.
