The Winning Content Marketing Team Structure For Every SaaS

Taking advantage of content marketing’s power requires more than just skilled marketers working in isolation—instead, a well-structured content marketing team is comprised of members with complementary skills.

In SaaS, they’re the team who produces content that drives customers throughout the many stages of the buying cycle.

So, what’s the winning content marketing team structure? 🤔

In this post, let’s take a look at the recommended SaaS content marketing team structure and the individual roles that should be in to achieve better marketing success.

Let’s go. 😊

What is content marketing, and why is it necessary?

Content marketing is a strategy that’s all about creating and distributing valuable and relevant content to attract and retain a clearly defined audience. Instead of concentrating on promotions, this marketing involves delivering valuable information so potential customers see you as a reliable source, think of you as a thought leader, and gain their trust.

Content can take many forms: 

  • blog articles
  • videos
  • infographics
  • whitepapers
  • social media posts
  • podcasts

Saas businesses like yours can benefit a lot from content marketing since SaaS products tend to have long sales cycles. And this equates to publishing lots of high-quality content to increase buzz to traffic (demand gen) to lead generation—like using content as lead magnets to encourage prospects to give you their contact info.

But here’s another important point:

Content marketing has a key role in the buying cycle

Content marketing plays a crucial role at each stage—guiding and nurturing customers throughout their journey.

Here’s a good illustration:


👉 During the awareness stage, content marketing targets to create brand awareness and capture the attention of potential customers who may not be familiar with the SaaS product or service yet. 

👉 And as the ‘aware’ lead moves through the consideration and decision stages, content marketing helps provide in-depth information like comparisons and case studies that highlight your competitive advantage. 

👉 Furthermore, content marketing continues its role in the post-purchase stages. That’s by nurturing customers to increase their loyalty and advocacy. You boost customer retention by providing ongoing support, educational resources, and relevant content.

Roles and Responsibilities in a content marketing team

Let’s dive into the vital roles and responsibilities of a content marketing team and the unique contributions they bring to the table.

Content strategist 

Starting off with the content strategist. They hold a critical role in shaping the messaging and overall content strategy of the SaaS brand. The strategist focuses on developing a strategic roadmap for content creation and distribution. 

Some of their key roles include:

  • refine the message of your brand through content and create a structured plan to ensure that all content aligns with your brand's goals and objectives
  • conduct thorough research to understand the target audience, market trends, and competitors
  • monitor and analyze the performance of SaaS content

CRO content writer:

The success of any content marketing team lies in good and well-designed content. A competent CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization ) content writer will be skilled in writing useful and informative content while also ensuring it’s conversion-focused, increasing engagement and ROI.

Some of their key roles include:

  • craft blogs, web copy,  landing pages, CTA copy, email campaigns, and other conversion-focused content that aligns with the customer journey
  • collaborate with the content strategist to align content messaging with conversion goals
  • apply CRO principles and techniques to improve the effectiveness of the SaaS company's content

Content Distributor:

This role is pretty straightforward—the responsibility is to distribute the content created by the content marketing team to target audiences through various channels. They should know how to create a buzz and enhance brand awareness.

Some of their key roles include:

  • managing content calendars
  • create and schedule social media posts
  • make data-driven decisions to optimize reach and engagement

Graphic Designer:

Now, this is a valuable role in creating visually appealing designs and illustrations that complement your brand's content. They create eye-catching graphics, infographics, illustrations, and other visual elements that align with the brand's visual identity. 

Some of their key roles include:

  • showcase the brand message through the visuals
  • collaborate closely with the content strategist and content creators to ensure the visual elements complement the messaging and enhance the impact of the content
  • possess a keen eye for detail, understand typography, color theory, and be proficient in design tools

SEO/Tracking Specialist:

In today's times, where online visibility is everything, a search engine optimization expert is important to a content marketing team. They work to enhance your content's search engine visibility and have a deep understanding of site analytics and web traffic to measure the success of the content marketing plan. 

Some of their key roles include:

  • does keyword research to identify relevant and high-performing keywords for the SaaS company's target audience
  • ensures that the SaaS company's website and content are optimized for search engines, including optimizing meta tags, headings, URLs, and internal linking structure
  • leverage tracking and analytics tools like Google Analytics and Google Search Console) to monitor and analyze the performance of the SaaS company's website and content

Collaboration of the content marketing team with other departments

Here’s how the collaboration between the content marketing team and other departments promotes a cohesive and customer-centric approach across the entire organization.

  • Collaboration between your content marketing team and the product team:

This joint effort is to convey the unique value proposition of the SaaS product or service accurately. The product team can provide insights into the features and benefits of your product or service—with the goal of improving the content marketing team's understanding of how to highlight the product's features.

Creating engaging and informative content that highlights your product's key features and benefits can be easier when your content marketing team collaborates with your product team. And with this content, your target audience will get a better understanding of your product or service, and as a result, your sales will go up.

  • Collaboration between your content marketing team and the sales team:

A serious strategy for revenue growth is teamwork between your content marketing and sales teams. Since the sales team is on the frontline of your company's customer engagement efforts, they have firsthand experience with your target audience and know precisely what types of questions and objections your customers have regarding your product or services. 

And your content marketing team can leverage this knowledge to create content that clicks with your target audience and ultimately leads to more sales. But this also works both ways—the content team can provide the sales team with valuable resources such as case studies, product guides, and customer testimonials that support the sales process and help build credibility.

  • Collaboration between your content marketing team and the customer support team:

Who directly interacts with customer inquiries and complaints? It’s the support team, right? The collaboration between the content marketing team and the customer support team is vital for nurturing customer relationships and delivering exceptional customer experiences. 

The content marketing team works closely with the customer support team to understand common customer pain points, frequently asked questions, and challenges faced by users. And their cooperation lets them create content that proactively addresses these issues, providing valuable resources that help customers overcome obstacles and maximize the value of the SaaS offering.
