Xiaohongshu content strategy: Targeted Content-seeding users

⭐ Solve practical problems or provide emotional value ⭐

1. User-led search behavior
Target customers with clear needs, focusing on search behavior.
Matching note content types:
Category, efficacy, style, color…
Target consumers of a certain category often have clear preferences for categories, efficacy, style, color, etc. In terms of content deployment, you can directly create content around category words + benefits.

2. User-led browsing behavior
Potential customers with vague needs, focusing on browsing behavior
Matching note content types:
Specific scenarios, tutorial dry goods, plot-oriented…
Potential consumers usually have low demand for a certain category/industry, and it is difficult to reach them with brand words/product words/category words. Usually, it is necessary to use scenario-based content to softly content seeding.

🔑TIPS: For commercial notes to achieve better grass-planting effects, it is recommended to align the content format with native UGC content. Stay informed and make good use of hot topics, combining commercial content with in-site hot topics to have a better chance of creating explosive commercial notes.
