B2B professionals find content marketing particularly useful, as it allows them to showcase their experience and at the same time deliver value to their customers. Sixty percent of B2B professionals plan to increase (in relation to the last year) their budget in content marketing.

This is evident from the data analyzed in the new study developed by the consultancy Analítica Digital  DIVISADERO, and which highlights the vital importance of incorporating content marketing as part of the digital strategy of companies.

According to the report, the digital asset that  leads the dissemination of content relevant to industry is clearly  the blog , reaching 47% of the actors analyzed. After blogs,  You Tube and Twitter  are revealed as the second most used, with a percentage of  26%  and  23%  respectively, moving to the last place (of those analyzed)  Facebook  with  18%.

The study also highlights some of the benefits of content marketing, including:
  • The instant delivery of feedback by consumers on the effectiveness of actions carried out in social media and post blogs.
  • Increasing consumer awareness, in real time, based on your search behavior.

  • The optimization of segmentation in those cases where the consumer’s permission (opt-in) is obtained to serve content. This gives us the possibility to create strategies adapted to the people according to their profile and interests.
