What services can we provide? Expanding the Possibilities of Custom
  4. 4. Expanding the Possibilities of Custom The Goal of Custom Content "Custom media marries the marketing ambitions of a company with the information needs of its target audience. This occurs through the delivery of editorial content – via print, Internet, and other media – so intrinsically valuable that it moves the recipient’s behavior in a desired direction." - Custom Content Council
  5. 5. Expanding the Possibilities of Custom How an audience gets information about a brand Besides community- building and membership efforts, a brand works to build awareness through advocacy, branded content, and other influencers. Content, whether print, digital, audio, video, events strengthens that relationship.
  6. 6. Expanding the Possibilities of Custom Addressing the content challenge Producing Engaging Content Ranks #1
  7. 7. Expanding the Possibilities of Custom How does an organization overcome that hurdle? “In my opinion, 100% of companies should be outsourcing at least part of their content marketing....if we really want to position ourselves as the leading experts in our industry, we must outsource portions of our content marketing.  Why? Someone out there has better ideas than you do (at least some of the time). Find a content partner to help you develop the best content marketing in the world for your niche. You don’t have time to do everything. Content marketing is a complex beast.  Don't be arrogant to think that you can control it.  Focus on driving revenue and get some partners in to drive your content marketing goals. Full-time concentration. What I really love about outsourcing to content marketing firms is that they spend 100% of their time telling stories for marketing success.  Your full-time job is selling some product or service in your industry, probably not content marketing. Find a content marketing firm with expertise in your industry and content marketing and you've got a winner.” Joe Pulizzi - Junta 42 Blog – posted – August 31, 2010
