You've heard it before: you need a content strategy. But how can you make it impacting without huge budgets and resources?

At Scoop.it, we started meetup groups in San Francisco and then in NYC to discuss best practices around that precise topic. Following more than a year of great sessions with speakers from uservoice, task rabbit, linkedin, slideshare, buffer, moz, mozilla, facebook, likeable media, vaynermedia as well as thought leaders like beth kanter or jeremy goldman, we've put together the first framework for Lean Content.

Lean content is not just content marketing "for the rest of us" but the smart and efficient way to have an impact with strong focus.

  • Isn't consistency more important than frequency?

    Yes, I agree quantity is important to produce quality... but you risk dinging your brand message in the pursuit of quality. Too many businesses put out crap without having established basic strategy, knowing their buyer personas, and creating a style guide that establishes minimum quality standards.

    Just 'doing' content for the sake of doing it is no different than the mindset of running an ad in the Yellow Pages because everyone is 'doing' it.

    When comparing content marketing returns and costs of creating content, too many businesses under budget producing quality from day one.

  • @ParmveerSandhu The point on quantity is intentionally provocative - and I admit - might sound like a paradox: we all want quality of course (and as we say on slide 3 we have no choice anyway). But an inspiring argument made by one of our speakers - Leo Widrich from Buffer - was that to obtain quality, you needed practice.

    This is what slide 19 is about: no one delivers quality from day 1. And if you wait to be perfect to start, you never will. Don't be afraid of the quality of your first content pieces: just do it. As you repeat and learn, you will move quality up and the needle for your content marketing.

    Makes more sense?

  • good points... but should have been more clearer .... Quantity over Quality ... ??? Yes frequency matters but on what cost...?
