Communication. Connected.

By the time a consumer is ready to choose you, they already have done their homework.

The good news is that most organizations have the information, testimonials, and reviews that consumers are looking for. The bad news is that they are hard to find, served up at inopportune times, and/or don’t guide the consumer through the assessment and buying journey.

If you come at the problem from the PR side, you’re probably doing brand journalism. If you’re coming at it from the marketing side, you’re probably doing content marketing. Regardless, you should be integrating your efforts with your colleagues across the aisle in order to see the consumer from exploration, through consideration, and to selection. Then link up with your customer service teams to integrate marketing and communications to retain that customer.
