As brands increasingly flood social and digital
properties with new content, even the best pieces are
struggling to be discovered. When audiences encounter
roughly 285 pieces of content daily, how can you ensure that
yours is rising through the clutter?
As digital marketers, we understand the value content offers
brands to connect with audiences and move them to action.
We know more than half of B2B buyers rely more on content to research
and inform their purchasing decisions than they did a year ago. And as a
result, marketers are focused on ramping up efforts to develop significantly
more content than in years past - 70% of B2B marketers report that they
expect to create more content in 2017 than in 2016.
However, as brands increasingly flood social and digital properties
with new content, even the best pieces are struggling to be discovered.
When audiences encounter roughly 285 pieces of content daily, how can
you ensure that yours is rising through the clutter?

Unlike baseball fields, content does not adhere to the, “if you build it, they will come” principle.
It works best when you tailor it to address your audience’s interests, needs, and wants.

Don’t fall into the trap of creating content for the sake of doing so – create and promote assets that
drive the measurable marketing objectives most impactful for your business.

Consider What Your
Objectives are Worth
Digital advertisers spend (on average) $250 - $300 a day per channel,
but are these investment levels right for your campaign objective?
• If you’re lacking historical data, launch your campaigns with a modest
introductory test spend. You can roughly estimate your test spend by
checking the average channel CPC and multiplying that cost by the
number of actions you desire.
• Evaluate the performance of your test campaigns following a
2-3-week flight and optimization period.
• With that information, you can then calculate your ROAS (return on ad
spend) and scale campaign spending to maximize ad performance and

Target Your Audience
Launching a paid ad campaign to reach your target audience is only effective if you can
actually reach the right people.
While many platforms differ in their approach and options for targeting, consider how you
can build out targeting for some of these general parameters:

They Expect to Go
Successfully driving your audience to a desired piece of content
or digital location is great, but the work isn’t done yet!
You must engage audiences on priority digital destinations by
greeting them with:
• The content they expect to see (no bait-and-switches!)
• A clean and easy to navigate user experience
• An identical user experience on mobile and desktop
• Additional recommended related content
Take Your Tracking Further
Digital platforms offer marketers an impressive array of
ad performance metrics; however, you shouldn’t stop there!
Always pair individual ads with unique tracking codes that you can generate
via your CRM in order to gain a more detailed understanding of your
audience’s behavior after clicking an ad.
