Presentation by PR Newswire Global Director of Emerging Media, Michael Pranikoff as part of the CNW – a PR Newswire Company – breakfast series given in Ottawa on June 20, 2013. The focus of this presentation focused on content as a catalyst in creating audience engagement. Content alone is no longer king. In order to have a successful campaign today you have to ask yourself, “What is the conversion metric we’re using to build awareness and spark action?’. Be it views, shares or sales, your metric is the key to every successful content marketing strategy. It doesn’t matter if you are a B2C, B2B, or nonprofit. AS your brand provides context around the conversation, ask if – and how- your content drives your desired outcomes.
