In recent times and especially during the pandemic, the phrase 'content is king' has caught on like wildfire in the world of marketing but in retrospect, content without context has no value for customers. The primary goal for guaranteeing the success of any marketing initiative is to deliver contextual communications to customers for greater engagement and higher customer value.

1. Content That Strikes the Right Tone

Contextual communication always strikes the right tone with customers as its creative ingenuity brings together the geographical and cultural nuances that are related to the customer. The advantage of such communication is the relevancy of the content with the customer's emotions, socio-economic background, values, and cultural ethos.

2. Content That Customers Want

Contextual communication holds a critical position in defining a brand's content strategy because customers do not engage with the content delivered to them, if it does not interest them, or is irrelevant to their needs. For delighting customers with engaging content, businesses must capture and analyze customer demands by utilizing transformational technologies like artificial intelligence, data analytics and machine learning.

3. Content Delivery at the Right Moment

Delivering the right content at the right time can be achieved with the help of the right analytics, a thorough study of behavioral patterns and consumer preferences. Brands must focus on targeting their content at the right time to increase the rate of engagement and ultimately increase conversions.

4. Content that Becomes Word of Mouth

Contextual communication not only ensures that you deliver relevant content to your customers but also delight them with your innovative and creative content delivery. Content that hits the right emotional cord often gets shared on social media, giving you more reach and maximizing your audience. When customers share your communication collateral within their network, your content becomes word of mouth.

5. Content Delivered Through the Right Channel and the Right Device

In an age of omnichannel, cross-channel and cross-device delivery of content, brands should be proactive to ensure that the content shared across channels is consistent with their brand tonality and ethos.

With contextual customer experiences, business leaders are now putting customer centricity into action with personalized content delivered across platforms and devices for higher engagement, loyalty and retention. These digital practices with impressive contextual customer experiences allow brands to both retain and acquire customers while maximizing their profit margins.
