Successful marketing to UK engineering companies
There are many reasons you might be looking to reach out to civil engineers and the engineering industry. Engineers are a key target market for any manufacturing company.
Many of them are involved in project management. A large part of this task is making large purchases of machinery, parts and hardware. Engineers, however, are not easy targets for marketers, who are taught to appeal to the emotions of a potential customer.
These big-ticket items are important and expensive, so any supplier must to weigh their options logically. This means a change in approach for businesses.
Optimize your website for search engines
Engineers, like everyone else, gain the bulk of their information from search engines. Despite this, engineers are one of the few audiences that will look beyond the first two pages of search engine results.
This means that there is more competition than other markets. You must make all of your content compelling at first glance. Your meta descriptions must fully explain what your page does and why it is valuable in order to appeal to engineers.
Consider creating several pieces of compelling content around each target keyword. With a larger content marketing campaign, you could rank in different sections of the SERPs, increasing your visibility.
Create timely technical content
Engineers are more likely to purchase from a company they trust. For engineers, creating trust means offering information that helps them work. You could share how-to videos, product details, or video demonstrations for the product or service you are offering. Additionally, you could create engaging content around current trends and talking points.
Provide both gated and ungated content on your site to make your web presence SEO-friendly. You could make blog posts, product information and so on available for free, whereas whitepapers need a form, enticing prospects to sign up.
