Content Marketing Boring Industries [SLIDES]
Creating content is often a daunting task. It’s even more complicated when the industry you are working for is not all supermodels and fast cars. What to do when you need to create content for a boring industry? There are two main ways:
Create content for the “weird” people who find the industry interesting. Ask them what they want to know and fill that need. The down side is that this audience might be limited and not your ideal customer base.
As an alternative you can create content about something completely different. Find a topic that is important to your customer base and talk about that. If you can tie it to your industry – great! If not you will still get visibility to your brand and the interestingness of the topic will rub off on your brand.
Let’s take an example like RedBull. It’s sugar fizz with some stimulants in it. Not something you can talk about for hours. However, they have found a way to be extremely cool in the eyes of their potential customers by dominating the field of extreme sports.
