In the fast-paced world of design, where trends evolve swiftly and consumers demand constant newness, the power of compelling content marketing cannot be overstated.

Furniture, accessories and lighting brands are tasked not only with crafting exquisite pieces but also with capturing the imagination of their audience to drive leads and sales. In this article, we delve into what pieces of content can actually have an impact on your business with an analytical approach, instead of simply creating for the sake of it.

 Visual Storytelling:

In the realm of furniture, visuals reign supreme. Harness the power of visual storytelling by showcasing stunning imagery and videos that evoke emotion and inspire desire. High-quality photography, in context for scale, and captivating videos allow prospects to envision your pieces in their own spaces, fostering a deeper connection with your brand. Here are a few tips to elevate your visuals:

  • Pink chair theory: aspirational and bold images often convert better than realistic ones. For example we might show a pink chair to grab attention, even though most people end up buying beige or black. 
  • We can leverage swatches,materials and sample boxes to capture flatlays or “moodboards”, which is a tool designers are familiar with when crafting a space.
  • Film one vignette from multiple angles (plus close-ups, zoom in or out…), or several vignettes at once in rapid succession to quickly highlight multiple aspects of a product or multiple products.
  • Show the product in use! It can be as simple as a video of someone opening or extending a table, opening a cabinet, folding a chair, etc.
  • Unboxing videos; popular in a variety of industries, for a reason. It tends to keep people watching longer because they want to figure out what is inside!

Educational Content:

Publish “shop-the-look” articles, how-to guides that offer tips on decorating using your products, space planning tips, and furniture care guides. By offering practical advice and insights, you not only establish credibility but you’ll also be creating content that is specific to your brand and cannot be found elsewhere.

User-Generated Content:

Harness the power of user-generated content to amplify your brand's reach and authenticity. Encourage satisfied customers to share photos of their newly furnished spaces on social media. User-generated content serves as social proof, showcasing real-life examples of your furniture in use and inspiring confidence in prospective buyers.

Social Engagement:

Utilize social media platforms to cultivate a vibrant community around your brand. Share behind-the-scenes glimpses of your design process, conduct Q&A sessions with team members, and host polls and contests to keep followers engaged. By fostering meaningful interactions and conversations, you can nurture lasting relationships with your audience and keep your brand top of mind.

Omnichannel State of Mind:

Reach your audience wherever they may be by adopting an omnichannel approach. Distribute your content across multiple channels, including your website, social media platforms, emails, and even offline. Tailor your messaging and content formats to suit the unique characteristics of each channel, maximizing visibility and engagement.

Content marketing holds immense potential for furniture brands seeking to captivate audiences and drive sales. In the ever-evolving landscape of retail, the ability to craft captivating content is truly a game-changer.
