Social Media & Content Marketing For Manufacturers
Your online presence is only as strong as the content you publish online on your website, your blog, your social media accounts, and industry platforms. Your manufacturing company will need to thoroughly embrace content and social media marketing if you want to keep up with your competitors and stand the best chance of making sales online. However, putting out old content simply to appear active is a waste of your time and that of your customers. Your content strategy has to be tailored to the needs of your sector and, most importantly, to the questions and concerns of your target buyers at each stage of the buyer journey.
We can help you create compelling content that generates leads and converts customers and that helps build your business a better and more powerful presence online. Your marketing content can be used to attract new customers and engage their interest while keeping your acquisition costs low.

Social Media Marketing for Manufacturing Companies
Today's B2B buyers are doing more and more business online, and spending more time networking with suppliers and customers on Facebook and LinkedIn. Therefore, having a strong presence on social media platforms, particularly LinkedIn, is a must for any manufacturer who wants to maximise profits and build a prospect network, especially in the absence of face-to-face trade events. Creating and posting engaging social media content could help you to:
- Build awareness of your brand
- Promote specific products and services
- Distribute your marketing content
- Engage with existing and potential clients
- Carry out customer research
- Position your company as an industry leader

- Persuade more leads to become customers
- Retain more of your existing customers
- Make better use of your customer database
- Reduce your acquisition costs
- Boost your position in the search engine results page (SERPS)

CASE STUDIES & EXAMPLE RESULTS
Over the course of 14 years we have worked on hundreds, even thousands of marketing campaigns - ranging from traditional outbound campaigns (telemarketing, direct mail, events etc) to modern inbound techniques (SEO, content, social media etc). In the past two years we have developed something which goes beyond a campaign, or individual marketing tactics - we've developed an entire system for sales and marketing that helps businesses grow.
In the marketing industry, false hopes are a problem - marketing agencies often over promise, which leads to customers becoming disappointed and even disillusioned with marketing as a whole.
At JDR, we try to paint a realistic picture and also to avoid making specific forecasts - but we can share examples of other clients' results. We do this through our marketing case studies, but in this article we can share the average results that our customers get - and even track these results over a three year period.
