Benenden Health Gated Content Creation

Generating HR Adviser leads through insightful content

To create a series of insightful content pieces that generate actual quality lead data from HR advisers and decision maker prospects.

As per our content strategy, our monthly content articles were working to raise awareness of Benenden Health and these content pieces needed to be of a higher perceived value to ensure prospects would be willing to provide their data in exchange for the pieces.

Using proprietary research to originate thought leadership

To improve the perceived value of the content we carried out proprietary research and worked with external industry experts, including Jane Abraham, owner of Flourish Workplace Ltd and Academic lead at the University of Exeter on Workplace Wellbeing, before writing and designing a series of original thought leadership white paper.

The white papers were housed behind a mandatory data capture form on the Benenden website. Target audiences were driven to the data capture form via emails, social advertising and retargeting banners; with shorter blogs and infographics also created and used to entice readers to want to find out more.

To further increase our reach and obtain additional leads we also managed a paid partnership with HR Zone who hosted the white paper behind a data capture form on their site and carried out further promotion to targeted segments of their audience via blogs, email and social activity.

Topics were identified using insights gathered from our SEO and competitor audit and include:

  • Mental health at work

  • Your guide to developing a health and wellbeing strategy
