As a content marketer, you tend to find yourself asking, “what customer questions will this piece of content answer?” Enter the customer support team. They know why people contact your company and can help guide your work. That’s why it’s time for organizations to align their customer service with their content marketing efforts. This was the topic of conversation at a recent #CMWorld Twitter chat with Jay Baer. Jay is the founder of Convince and Convert and author of “Hug Your Haters.” What follows is a brief recap of our discussion.
A1. Most important thing is for content pros to understand that content for CURRENT CUSTOMERS is massively important. #cmworld

A2: Take the feedback and turn that into content that can help them and prove you are listening to their issues or compliments. Customers will appreciate being heard. #CMWorld

A2:Customers don’t always use the product or service they way we intended it to. Find use cases that vary from our intention and develop content and modify product to support what they really want to do. #cmworld
