How to nurture new and existing clients using content

For any business, nurturing relationships with new and existing clients should be a top priority.

After all, the customer experience doesn’t end when the client makes a purchase. Instead, your ultimate goal should be to create loyal, long-term clients who will keep coming back to your business.

Content can play a key role in this process. Whether you use video content, social media content, case studies, newsletters, blog content or traditional forms of media, connecting and engaging with your clients, customers and partners has never been easier.

An effective content strategy can not only help to generate leads, inspire action and acquire customers, but it also helps to nurture and expand new and existing relationships in line with your business goals.

How to use content to nurture new and existing clients

Generate awareness

The first stage to nurturing new clients is making them aware of your brand in the first place. Educational content is particularly useful for drawing in new customers – think white papers, eBooks, tutorials, blogs, and infographics.

Anticipate their questions
…and answer them.

Whatever products or services you’re selling, your customers will have questions about them. Work closely with the business’ sales and customer support teams to identify the questions that customers are frequently asking. Then create content that answers these questions and addresses their pain points and concerns.

By anticipating and answering your customers’ questions before they’ve asked them, you show that you understand their needs and are committed to saving them time and stress. This will help you nurture your relationships with new clients, as well as existing ones.

Provide maximum value

A key way to retain clients and nurture your relationship with them with your clients is to ensure they get maximum value from your products, services, and investments in your brand.

Content can help you achieve this. By consistently sharing useful, high quality content in the form of case studies, testimonials, blogs, webinars and other useful resources, you can demonstrate how your clients can make the most of your product or service, ensuring they get maximum value. Not only this, but regularly publishing fresh new content also helps you to earn better SEO rankings. 

Share industry insights

The world is now moving at a pace many of us struggle to keep up with.

With this in mind, your clients will always welcome you sharing any articles, news stories or case studies that are relevant to their industry. After all, it can be incredibly difficult to keep up to date with relevant industry news.

Assigning a member of your team to monitor news on a daily basis and share relevant content will instantly help you to engage with your customers on a level which will be much appreciated.

Engage with your clients

If you want to nurture your relationships with your clients, it’s important that they know you care. Engaging with them across different platforms by sharing and interacting with content, will show that you’re listening to them, and you truly value them.

And, if you receive any negative feedback or comments on your content, make sure you respond and address them immediately.

Tell a story

Storytelling plays a central role in marketing content. After all, customers are more likely to relate to other customers who have had similar experiences to themselves.

So use your content to tell a story, using case studies, success stories, and testimonials. This will help you to capture the attention of new and existing clients and nurture your relationship with them.

Focus on your customer

Finally, whatever type of content you’re creating, make sure your customer is the main focus. Remember to look at things from their perspective, and address their needs and concerns through your content.
