Interact with the Buyer through Content
Think of the type of customers that you are catering to. Consequently, use the words accordingly. That is to say, we talk face to face with the customers in the store. Moreover, customers are looking for personalization. So, content creators should firstly make content targeting the type of audience that they cater to. Secondly, they should personalize messages for regular and loyal customers. Such customers usually have accounts on websites. Therefore the content creating team should send personalized messages to them as well through online customer service, while they shop through the website. Moreover, it is also through the POS System integrated with websites, that we are aware of the customers and their purchases. So by knowing about the regular customers through the POS System, the marketing teams too can attend to the customers in a better and more effective way.
Content should describe Product Usefulness
Benefits of the products should be explained explicitly. That is to say, customers need to know the details of the product that they will buy. For example, color, size, type, uses, product material, guarantee, etc. So, customers buy a product once they know its benefits and usefulness for them. So before writing content, content creators need to think about how useful the product is for the customers? How can you explain to them in simple words its usefulness in their daily life?
Content should be Skimmable
People have less time. They only want to know the information that they are looking for. So there should be subheadings so that the reader does not have to go through the entire piece of writing to find something that they are searching for. Moreover, the paragraphs should be small. Also, make use of appropriate images that also help the customers with the information they are looking for.
Correct usage of Words for Content
There are certainly describing words that are appealing to the senses and attract customer attention. If it’s a fabric, customers should know by the words how the fabric will feel and what its material looks like. Further, explicitly define the color so that they can imagine how the color would look like and if they should buy it or not.
