Manufacturing industry is also leveraging digital to connect with customers, to build visibility and sales funnel. In this article, we will discuss two digital marketing case studies which we executed for manufacturing companies. So let’s get started.

Our strategy included of 6 steps, let’s understand each one of it 

Target Audience Insights: 
The first step is to define the target audience and understand their demographics, psychographics, needs, research behavior, pain points, and interests. We did extensive research to define personas within the audience. Once you know what their challenges and needs are, you can define your communication strategy.

Competition Analysis 

It is important to understand what’s your competition strategy, their communication strategy, social media approach, and the types of content pieces they are creating digitally. So we did extensive research on Mitsubishi’s competitors to understand their strategy in detail, and we found that they build different content properties on social, had reports and case studies, product films, testimonials, and webinars, which helped us with more insights to define our strategy 

Business Proposition 

In this step, we defined what the business proposition is by learning through the product information, the service information, the technicalities, and the value Mitsubishi brings to the table. Based on this and consumer insights your communication strategy is then conceptualised. 

Communication Strategy

Based on our findings, we saw a transition towards SMART FACTORY, digital is at the core of this offering. However many of the manufacturing businesses don’t know where to start this digitalization. We brought Mitsubishi’s step-by-step approach to the forefront through a cohesive digital campaign ‘Connect-Scale-Accomplish’ which extends into Connect Digitally, Scale Rapidly, and Accomplish Your Goals. ’
