In the B2B marketing world, creating effective content that resonates with target customers can be a challenging task. While there are many forms of content that can be used, anchor content - in the form of white papers, executive reports, and thought leadership pieces - is one of the most powerful ways to engage with your target audience and drive lead generation. This article will explore what anchor content is, the different forms it can take, how it can be used to support specific marketing goals, and how to maximize its reach and ROI.
What is Anchor Content?
Anchor content is long-form content that forms a central pillar of a monthly or quarterly marketing plan. It is typically gated, meaning that users have to provide their email and basic personal information to access the report and agree to receive promotional emails. This type of content is designed to attract and engage high-value leads by providing them with valuable insights and information that they can’t find anywhere else.
Forms of Anchor Content
Anchor content can take many forms, including white papers, executive explainers, research reports, surveys, and more. Each form has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, and the type of content you choose to create will depend on your specific marketing goals and the needs of your target audience. For example, a research report may be ideal for establishing thought leadership in a specific industry, while an explainer may be more effective for explaining a complex product, service or regulatory change.
Using Anchor Content to Support Marketing Goals
Anchor content is that it can be used to can be used to effectively support specific brand and marketing messages, campaigns, events, or product launches. By creating content that aligns with your marketing goals, you can increase the effectiveness of your overall marketing strategy. For example, if you have a booth at an event, a white paper tied to the marketing message you are using can be part of the materials you share with visitors, or better have them sign up to access the report at the event. In addition, the white paper can be used to both promote the event in the run-up and extend its reach in the days and weeks after.
Breaking Down Anchor Content to Maximize ROI
High-value anchor content can also be broken down into shareable content such as blog posts, infographics, social/LinkedIn posts, and more. This helps to extend its reach and increase its ROI by making it more accessible to a wider audience. By taking a multi-channel approach to distribution, you can ensure that your content reaches as many potential leads as possible.
Evergreen Content vs. Newsworthy Content
When it comes to anchor content, there are two main types of content to consider: evergreen content and newsworthy content. Evergreen content is designed to provide long-term value to your target audience by addressing ongoing challenges or opportunities in your industry. Newsworthy content, on the other hand, is designed to capitalize on current events or trends to drive short-term engagement and interest. While both types of content can be effective, evergreen content is typically more valuable in the long run, as it continues to drive leads and engagement long after it is published.
The Benefits of Incorporating Data
Incorporating data into your anchor content can significantly increase its value to the user, especially if it is not data they can access anywhere else. By providing unique insights and statistics, you can establish your brand as a thought leader in your industry and increase the likelihood that your content will be picked up by press releases and other media outlets.
Promoting Thought Leaders and Boosting Personal Brands
Finally, it is important to recognize that creating high-quality anchor content can also be an effective way to promote your team as thought leaders and boost their personal brands. By providing valuable insights and establishing your team as experts in your industry, you can help to increase their visibility and reputation, which can ultimately benefit the company as a whole.
