Matthew Olson is the President of Signalfire, a creative marketing agency based in Wisconsin. Signalfire was a brand sponsor of 2024 Industrial Marketing Summit and after meeting him and his team at the event we knew we had to have him on the podcast. Signalfire started in 2006 and has a unique mix of clients. Today Matthew and his team are focused on helping clients in the industrial manufacturing and tourism industries. While these two industries may not appear to have a lot in common, Matthew shared the key strategies that are successful in both and what industrial marketers can learn from B2C marketing strategies.

This episode of Content Marketing, Engineered covers the importance for industrial companies to optimize their Google Business Profiles, including adding geographic locations and soliciting authentic customer reviews. Matthew goes into detail about the hidden SEO benefits of Google Reviews.

Matthew and I talk about the future of SEO and Google Search as well as alternative avenues to bring in audiences like Google Ads and even TV ad placement. Another great conversation topic is the importance of visual branding and creative design - something stakeholders don't often see ROI in. Matthew shares his perspective on this and teaches us how to get buy-in from executives by sharing the benefits of great creative.
