When it comes to writing content that customer wants to read, David shares:

"The first step is to understand the customer. You have to know their needs, their preferences and most importantly their pain points. Sometimes the customer does not know that they have a pain point so you have to make them aware."

He also explains how marketers should be thinking about content and the buyer’s journey:

"The two should not be thought of separately. Content in the buyer's journey are related. The first step is to map out your buyer's journey: awareness, interest, decision and advocacy. A good marketer will understand what the buyer is thinking or needing in that stage."

David also shares how marketers can incorporate the right tone of voice in writing content:
