*******************Content is nothing new weve been creating content for years in the form of proposals, seminars, datasheets, slidekits.
But what has changed is that digital has given us better ways to tell our story.
*Owning the category that your brand is in, not talking about product, its about issues.
Why its so important is because content is going to define the way you are found in the search and social space.
This is something we are doing with Siemens, weve repositioned them as the Business Technologists, now were developing a social and content strategy that enables them to own the Business Technology category by creating content relevant to issues like security and cloud.
Business technology category in the making bus technologists positioning to own
*Why is content so important?
Weve discussed the new user journey.
Starting at search Conversations with people or reading user generated content.Taking feeds on their terms
You can only succeed here with social channelsYou can only succeed here with content this is where we really see the power of content.
Content is going to power your marketing strategies. We have to give them what they want, but if we are going to get found, and they are going to choose our proposition, we have to give them something of value..
*So this is what I meant at the start, this is where content gets exciting!
..and we have to create engaging experiences that deliver the message -
The experience/conversation is now the message.
