According to the Growth Paradox, “The smaller you are the BIGGER you
must look, and the bigger you are the SMALLER you must get.” Content
management allows AMC association clients to raise their profiles
as thought leaders, while building and serving niche communities.
Which begs the question: Who’s your AMC’s “Chief Content Officer”?
Regardless of the size or structure of your AMC, it’s more important than
ever to have someone at the helm of your clients’ content strategies.
(And if you don’t have content strategies in place for your clients, then
all the more reason to attend this session!) Content marketing is not
about creating award-winning publications or becoming a social media
superstar – it’s about developing and re-imagining content that engages
audiences, adds value for members and positions your clients as thought
leaders in their industries. Learn ways to make the content you produce
more compelling, relevant and interactive, while improving the return on
investment for your AMC’s clients. First presented at the AMC Institute Community Conference in August 2011.
