Top of funnel is important to drive awareness to a brand. With the strong emphasis on social media to promote brands, targeting relevant consumers with the right messaging is key. The more specific you make your content across platforms, the better your results will be.
The Importance of Industry Specific Content Industry specific content is incredibly important for search engine optimization (SEO) and online visibility. Having content that is tailored to your industry allows search engines to better understand the context of your website and the topics you are covering, which can help improve your rankings in search engine results pages (SERPs). Additionally, industry-specific content can help your website stand out from competitors, as it is more likely to be unique and engaging for your target audience. Ultimately, creating content that is tailored to your industry can help you build trust and credibility with search engines and potential customers, resulting in increased website traffic and engagement.

As an example, consider the wine industry. Most wineries rely upon promotions, special events and wine clubs to build their business. Essentially, they are a subscription model, with a constant top of funnel need to grow their base. For success in this industry, get inside the mind of your consumer. Segmentation will help with this, because there are consumers with different needs. You know your customer best, so identify if your customer is a highly knowledgeable heavy user, a medium knowledge and moderate user or a light knowledge user that wants to know more or is in it for the social fun. Most wineries and brands have customers that fit into each of those buckets, but one bucket typically dominates.
Once you've segmented your audience, the below tips can help:
Utilize social media platforms to target your audience. Create attractive visual content and use relevant hashtags to reach new customers.
Make use of influencers in your industry to reach more people. Invite them to try your product and spread the word about your wine.

Focus on creating a memorable experience for customers. Offer tastings, in-store events, and unique packaging to stand out from competitors.
