Content Marketing vs Advertising Marketing ...

Content Marketing vs Advertising Marketing
‘Content is king!’ We have all heard this, but how well has content been managed given the explosion of channels and increased sophistication of consumer engagement with brands? In Australia, we see the US Federal Trade Commission more invested in what marketers are doing and brands that mislead consumers through native advertising may face legal action in 2014.

With greater scrutiny by consumers and regulators, is there a ‘sweet spot’ between content and consumer engagement? What is the difference in native and content marketing and what categories and brands are seeing the most impact and success? What trends are taking place that speak to the future of success for push-pull content delivery?

In this session, in highlighting specific brands and categories, we will review the best approaches to consumer engagement and the marketing way forward with particular focus on ‘taking the bland out of the brand.’

  • JULIE <br /> <br /> WHY RESEARCH: <br /> Evaluates the current landscape and gives you an action plan to operate successfully within it <br /> Determines what motivates stakeholders and drives their behaviors <br /> Helps you create an effective messaging strategy that will move people to action <br /> <br /> DON’T GUESS – GET IT RIGHT. <br /> Taking action without the benefits of research-based insights is akin to a strategy of “ready, fire, hope for the best.” Instead, positioning and messaging research allows us to take the approach of “ready, aim, fire.” <br /> <br /> Our structured approach delivers the following advantages: <br /> WHO: Identify which audiences and customers you can win. <br /> WHAT: Determine what will move them. <br /> HOW: Craft the messages that will win them over. <br />

  • 18. Australia and Content Marketing In early 2013, the Association for Data- driven Marketing and Advertising (ADMA) and the US-based Content Marketing Institute (CMI) conducted a survey of 216 marketers to evaluate the state of content marketing in Australia. To validate these findings against in-the- field experience, the ADMA, in partnership with content marketing agency Edge, convened a roundtable of senior B2B and B2C marketers in March 2013 to discuss the survey results.

  • 20. Top Approaches to CM  CM is owned by someone at a central point of responsibility.  It is developed on a department-by- department basis, according to business needs.  It is developed and executed by the organisation’s marketing department.  In Australia, most CMOs say the business has no single owner for a content marketing strategy and/or no strategy.
  • 21. Top Approaches to CM  97% of Australian B2C marketers tailor their content in at least one way.  88% of Australian B2B marketers tailor their content in at least one way.  Only 25% of Australian marketers personalise content to individuals.

  • 36. “I am going to tell you a story…about why I am a great lover!” Content Marketing…
  • 37. Lesson One: Research Your Target. Define Your Objective  Do I understand my customers? Clear customer profiles, Attitudes, habits, media consumption, competitors/benchmarks?  What actions do we want people to take?  Do we have the right message that will resonate with our targets? Does the message connect to the brand DNA?  Is our potential content newsworthy? Does the content align against best practices, objectives? Is this novel and innovative? Insightful and perspective?  Is it interesting? Be real. The best content is natural but disruptive. It should "surprise and delight."
  • 38. Is the organisation silo-ed in terms of its communication disciplines? Do we have a senior function to integrate the multiple stakeholders? Do we have buy-in? What kinds of content can we share and do we have the right mix of staff to build more? Do their skills and experiences lend themselves to writing about certain areas of your business over others? How will the new content primarily be used? Lesson Two: Integrate Resources. Think Content Factory
  • 39. Lesson Three: Think Long-Term. Be Consistent Think John Deere. Are we tied to the vision of the brand/company? Is the organisation appreciative of a balance between short and long term goals? Content marketing is a marathon, not a sprint. How do we measure success? The goal is to change the perception. Measure everything. Think about “people” not “visitors.” Measuring by “click” is dead. Do we have proper measurement against process of content marketing? Monthly, yearly and with 2-3 year plan?
