For manufacturers, customer retention matters as much or more than lead generation. Often marketers talk about using content marketing to generate and nurture new leads. But companies can also use website content strategies for customer retention.

Looking for ideas on how to stay connected with customers during in today’s highly competitive manufacturing market? This post is for you.

Today, I will focus on website content. Wednesday’s post will delve into using social media to nurture customer relationships.

Content that Speaks to Current Customers

  • Case studies that show how your products supported customer success
  • User-generated content, such as customer reviews and testimonials
  • Most of all: Videos

  • Product capabilities videos

    • Show how to get the most out of products
    • Provide maintenance tips and resources
  • Value-added services videos
