  • Content Drives Them All – all kinds of content drives audience…but are you using the right content to drive audiences? Are you telling your unique story in a way that connects your audience to your brand or your message?
  • Before you go any further, the first step is making sure that you know the answers to a few key questions. First, it’s crucial to know who you are trying to reach. And the more specific, the better your communications campaign will be. Rather than Millennials, how about 25-30 year olds living in major cities who care about the environment?
  • Let’s look at the value exchange. For a brand, content is the currency. For the audience, personal information is the currency.  The value exchange happens when the content a brand continuously delivers establishes its worth to its audience and in turn the audience trusts the brand enough to identify themselves and provide permission to the brand to establish a relationship with them, to invite them to take an action.
  • Send your news release out on a wire service. When you do so, make sure you are doing correct SEO properties, to drive back where you want them to go.
  • The Classic Story Arc as we know it currently concludes it’s life span today in a period of 72 – 96 hours….and we think this is beginning to shorten. This requires marketers to separate our channels of Paid, Earned, and Owned and in this instance, relies fully on earned media to further our message.
  • We now move to a new way of telling our story. Here, we are now mixing our media – mixing the Paid, The Owned, and the Earned media inflections. In this scenario, we are now able to control more of the message. We keep adding more pieces to the story and at the same time using a mix of channels and media types – from text to imagery to video.
  • Content must be mapped to business objectives – whether you are simply looking to position yourself as a thought leader or you are looking to drive more tangible results, your content strategy must support your business objectives so that you are driving results that will have an impact on your organization.  
  • Content must be appealing – If your content isn’t interesting, engaging, useful or appealing to your audience, they won’t care. They won’t read it; they won’t share it; they won’t act on it. It will just be more noise.  
  • Content should include specific ‘Calls to Action’ – Whether the “Calls to Action” are focused on sharing the content or asking the audience to provide you with information in exchange for the content or lead to an immediate sales opportunity, CTAs are critical to measuring the results of your content marketing efforts. If you have a benchmark like State Farm did, you can measure against that.
