Hello, this is Dave at AFX, and today we’re diving into a game-changing strategy for business development, especially relevant for our colleagues in the investigative and title abstracting industry. In a world dominated by online presence, how do you attract more clients? The answer lies in the power of content, and we’re here to explore how you can leverage it effectively.

The Evolution of Content: Learning from Media Giants

Let’s take a stroll down media history. For decades, magazines and newspapers thrived not on the revenue from their readers but from advertisers. Readers paid for the physical delivery of the content, while advertisers paid for the exposure to the audience. This model remains relevant today but has evolved in the digital era.

The Rise of Online Content and Video

In the age of the internet, online content is king, and video content reigns supreme. Just as TV shows like Seinfeld or Friends garnered massive audiences, businesses can achieve a similar reach by providing valuable content. The key is not to sell the content itself but to attract eyeballs to your business.

The Pitfall of Pay Walls: A Lesson for Businesses

Many newspapers have adopted pay walls, requiring payment for online access. However, this move often proves counterproductive. The value is not in restricting access to content but in expanding it to as many readers as possible. The revenue comes from advertisements, not from readers paying for content.

The Business Development Paradigm: Your Path to Success

As a business, you can adopt the same strategy. Create valuable content—blog posts, videos, and more—and offer it freely to your audience. This positions you as an industry expert and attracts potential clients to your website.

Adding Value to Inquiries: A Win-Win Approach

Share your knowledge generously. If you provide advice or insights that clients can implement themselves, it builds trust and positions you as an authority. Some clients may handle the basics on their own, but when they need professional expertise, they’ll turn to you.

Unleashing the Power of Your Content: Practical Steps

  1. Create Blogs and Videos: Produce content that aligns with your expertise. It could be investigative insights, title abstracting tips, or any relevant industry topic.
  2. Offer Solutions: Provide solutions or advice in your content. This not only helps your audience but also establishes you as the go-to expert in your field.
  3. Build Your Online Presence: Use your website and social media platforms to share your content. The goal is to get as many eyes on your expertise as possible.

Your Unique Advantage: Tailored Content for Your Business

Here’s where you have a distinct advantage over traditional media. While shows like Seinfeld featured unrelated advertisements, your content directly relates to your business. Every piece of advice or insight you share is a potential gateway to a new client.
