  • 1. Designing Big Content Brian Chappell Managing Partner / ADAPT PARTNERS
  • 2. What is Big Content “Resources that go beyond our narrow bins of blog posts, videos, and infographics.” – Dr. Pete – Moz.com Img src: http://www.savorhisgoodness.com/2012/04/circus-date- night.html
  • 3. Think Bigger Than Evergreen
  • 4. Go Big or Go Home
  • 5. Be Thorough • Would you trust the information presented in this article? • Is this article written by an expert or enthusiast who knows the topic well, or is it more shallow in nature? • Does this article have spelling, stylistic, or factual errors? • Does the article provide original content or information, original reporting, original research, or original analysis? • Does the article describe both sides of a story? • Does this article provide a complete or comprehensive description of the topic? • Is this the sort of page you’d want to bookmark, share with a friend, or recommend? • Would you expect to see this article in a printed magazine, encyclopedia or book?
