Blog Strategy

For over 15+ years, Vive Marketing has taken pride in establishing a distinguishable brand presence for all of our manufacturing clients. What’s worked for us throughout the years? Take a look.



Build Brand Awareness Through:

1) Content Marketing

Create high-quality, informative content related to your industry. This could include blog posts, articles, whitepapers, and videos. Share this content on your website, social media platforms, and industry forums to establish your company as an authority in your field. It’s been noted by top SEO’s that 11-13 blogs per month are one of the few ways to move the needle if there’s a substantial focus on improving Google SERP positioning. 

2) Social Media Marketing

Utilize platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram to share updates, industry insights, behind-the-scenes content, and success stories. Engage with your audience by responding to comments and messages. Manufacturing is a niche space, invite your friends and colleagues to follow your page! 

3) Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Optimize your website for search engines to improve its visibility in search results. Focus on relevant keywords and phrases that potential customers might use when looking for manufacturing solutions. Remember, write content for people, not search engines. 

4) Email Marketing

Develop an email list of interested prospects and customers. Send regular newsletters with valuable content, industry news, and updates about your company. Email marketing helps maintain a consistent presence in your audience’s inbox. Interested in what people are links within users are clicking on? Creating custom UTM codes and apply accordingly!

5) Networking and Industry Events

Participate in trade shows, conferences, and industry events. These events offer opportunities to connect with potential customers, suppliers, and partners, thereby increasing brand exposure. In manufacturing, relationships hold a tremendous amount of weight. Don’t take these opportunities for granted! 

6) Collaborations and Partnerships

Partner with complementary businesses or industry influencers for cross-promotion. This can help you tap into their audiences and extend your brand’s reach. Be specific with whom you choose. Remember, your brands’ reputation is on the line. 

7) Customer Testimonials and Case Studies

Showcase your satisfied customers through testimonials and case studies. These real-world examples can demonstrate the value your manufacturing company provides and build credibility. In fact, Google has noted that one of the defining ways to improve local SEO is responding quickly and effectively to your Google My Business reviews. 

8) Webinars and Workshops

Host online webinars or workshops on topics relevant to your industry. This not only positions your company as an expert but also allows you to interact with potential clients directly. 

9) Localized Marketing

Target local communities by participating in local events, sponsoring local charities, or offering workshops in your area. This can help you build strong connections with local businesses and customers. Thinking of an outlet to highlight this type of involvement? LinkedIn and Facebook are great resources. 

10) Employee Advocacy

Encourage your employees to share company news and updates on their personal social media accounts. Employee advocacy can amplify your brand message and reach a broader audience. In our world, marketing is for more than your business. It’s for your employees too. 

11) Guest Blogging and Contributed Articles

Write guest posts or contribute articles to industry publications, blogs, or websites. This allows you to showcase your expertise to a wider audience and establish credibility. Looking for some ideas? We find great value in Plastics News, Plastics Business, Plastics Technology, Metalforming Magazine, and more! 

12) Online Directories and Listings

Ensure your manufacturing company is listed on relevant online directories, industry associations, and business listings. This can improve your online visibility and brand recognition.

13) Visual Content

Use visual content like infographics, videos, and images to convey complex manufacturing processes or showcase your products in action. Visual content is more likely to be shared and can reach a larger audience.

By combining several of these cost-effective methods and adapting them to your company’s unique strengths, you can effectively increase brand awareness for your manufacturing business.
