5 blog post ideas for a B2B product launch

A B2B product launch relies heavily on marketing to generate awareness and interest in the new product. And content marketing is particularly influential in stimulating buzz and discussion. Among the different types of content that one can create and distribute, blogging can be one of the simplest but most effective avenues. Compared to articles, eBooks, white papers, and other long written content, blogs are typically the shortest, making them useful for spreading tidbits of information about a new product.

So what blog topics can help to interest and engage the audience about a new product? These five primers are essential to prioritize in order to pave the way for a successful product launch.

1. Why you created the product

There could be many reasons why you created your new product, but your audience may not know it. It has become more common for brands to create a “origin story” that highlights what their product is and why they developed it. Regardless of the sector or sector, new products most often come from pain points. People who understand the “why” behind a product can relate more strongly to it. The fact that they understand that they are not alone in facing the challenges they face can build more trust in your brand and the new product.

2. Functional overview

There is no doubt that your new product has unique characteristics. So why not write about them? While disclosing all the details of every feature might not be the best idea, giving an overhead view of key features can give your audience exclusive insight into what your product will deliver. For example, if you have a custom or personalized feature that is tailored to each user, you can briefly outline what it is, how it works, and why it matters to a challenge or issue.

3. Overview of beta results

Many companies use Beta tests to give users a preview of a soon-to-be-released product to help uncover issues and get ideas and feedback on what users liked and disliked. The information gathered from beta testing can fuel a great product launch blog. Buyers Trust customer testimonials and reviews of people who have used the product. So, creating a blog that focuses on details, reviews, and beta test results can be helpful in raising awareness of your product launch, especially your target audience. It is always essential to focus on the positives, but don’t be afraid to share the failures as well. Being genuine with your readers and your audience is important. Additionally, the failures or challenges that you mention can also turn positive about how you chose to solve them.

4. Frequently asked questions

Product launches naturally generate questions from people interested in purchasing your product. This often happens right before a purchase, as prospects learn about different features and overall performance to build confidence in buying decisions. What better way to answer these questions than to start a blog that features Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)? Search engines also like content with questions. So doing a simple FAQ blog post can give your buyers the information they need and improve your search engine rankings.

5. What to expect

What is your team looking forward to the most when the product launches? Whether it’s a feature of the product, business improvements that buyers will experience, or something else, it can also be a welcome blog topic. Request product launch team members in marketing, sales, product development and other areas on what areas of the product they are most passionate about and what they think buyers will gain. Buyers who hear directly from the people who develop, market and sell the product behind the scenes gain confidence and authenticity.

Expand the reach of your product launch

Promoting a new B2B product launch is all about spreading the word, generating awareness, and even attracting interested buyers. While blogging can be a simple and basic content marketing technique, it can do whatever you want it to do. Focusing on blog topics that showcase the product, answer key questions, and give the audience an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at product creation is a great place to start.
