Beyond WCM: Driving Business from Your Website


Published on

A strategic shift in ownership of corporate websites is occurring with power moving from IT departments to marketing teams. Until recently, content management systems were the responsibility of IT to centralize control of content.

Now, marketers seek to fully leverage the web as the critical channel to drive business results. Marketers are seeking solutions that are agile and able to attract visitors and convert leads.

This webinar covers:

• The challenges and opportunities offered by the web as a channel to drive growth
• The needs of web content management for marketing success verses IT control
• Steps to take to harness the potential of the web to build demand
• What skills really matter for marketers to win with web marketing
