Strategy for B2B Pillar Pages
An effective pillar page helps to understand human search behaviors and enhance SEO ranking. A powerful strategy for B2B pillar pages can attract the target audience and persuade them to buy your products or services.

Nowadays, businesses are not that focused on the top of the funnel, which helps your target audience know more about your brand. So those types of content are indispensable. Pillar pages are considered one of the most valuable parts of content strategy that determines B2B  marketing success.

Let’s take a look at the strategy for B2B pillar pages to scale your business and achieve innumerable outcomes.

A Pillar page is a website page with in-depth information on the main topic and other relevant topics. Thus, it provides thorough information on a certain high-value topic relevant to your business to educate its customers and satisfy them.

Once a customer decides to buy a product or service, he needs some valuable and detailed information. That information helps him to understand the brand in a very comprehensive manner. In addition, a customer finds it valuable and effective as he clears all of his doubts. Therefore, it is the best medium to approach your target audience and enhance their engagement by providing them highly advantageous, constructive, and sufficient information along with some other sub-topics regarding your industry or brand.


Essential Types of Pillar Content

Marketers utilize mainly three types of pillar content to help their potential customers by providing more information about the brand.
  • The 10x Content Pillar Page
  • The Sub Topic Pillar Page
  • The Resource Pillar Page
