Unlocking the Full Power of a Content Strategy by Chris Winfield


Published on

Chris Winfield presented "Unlocking the full power of a content strategy" at Performance Marketing Insights on March 13, 2013.

Content is a fundamental part of any marketing element. It's the mindset, culture and approach to delivering your customer's information needs across each stage of the buying process. Implementing a successful and engaging content strategy is paramount to today's marketing efforts.

A content strategy that is successful across search and social channels, whilst increasing trust, authority, integrity and persuasion, is an opportunity that's often overlooked.

This session is perfect if you're recycling existing resources to create reactive content, freshening up your ageing content strategy or approaching a new audience. You'll learn how to utilise new, existing and recycled resources to create content your business audience will want to devour at the earliest opportunity.
