The window of opportunity is open for progressive marketers in the manufacturing sector, but it is slowly closing as the “New Way” to market begins to catch on. Manufacturers who are willing and able to implement the New Way to match their prospective customers’ buying strategies will win in their respective markets.
Manufacturers must stop pitching their products at the top of the funnel where strong engagement is a differentiator. Instead of pitching products, the winners will engage with the people in their target audience by helping them to be better, relieve a pain point, or enjoy a passion more. Helping them without pitching your product cultivates top-of-mind-awareness (TOMA), credibility, and reciprocity. But there’s a catch to being successful.
You have to be the first mover, or at least the first in your market to use the New Way to its fullest advantage. The New Way has been tested and proven to work in highly competitive manufacturing markets.
What's in it for you? It's simple; increased sales and competitive advantage.
