B2B TECH MARKETING AND THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

When you brand based on your expertise, you build your reputation as a thought leader.

Building a content strategy helps you build credibility and drive authentic engagement with your named accounts.

At Macon Raine, thought leadership management begins with our CRM-first/people first methodology where we research your total addressable marketing and ensure your CRM is full of the right names and influencers.

Once we know your prospective customers, then we’ll research topics your business is equipped to examine and explain. By creating thought leadership content, your posts will appear in organic search results, attract readers and contribute to the sales process.

Everything is managed from a central content calendar – all organized by topic, keyword, and deadline to maximize impact, and helping to establish your brand as subject matter experts in your industry.

Everything we do is about getting your quality content into the hands of people that will be most receptive to your message. We collaborate with your Subject Matter Experts to create search optimized content such as:

  • Byline articles
    We will interview your subject-matter-expert, write a 1,200-1,500 word perspective and get it published with your expert’s name as the author.
  • Whitepapers
    We will write a 1,500+ word article after interviewing your experts and use it to build your thought leadership content.
  • Blog posts
    Our team will write 400-500 word blog posts with a weekly frequency to increase your social media engagement and help build your brand.
  • Editorial pieces
    We will write an editorial perspective by interviewing your expert/s and positioning it in influential media either in response to or in anticipation of important events.
