  • 25. But Where Hell Is The Context!?
  • 26. People and search engines do not consume content in the same way ... =
  • 27. Search engines consume via tags, data, code, etc.
  • 28. Conversely, our brains are affected by everything — from the amount of sleep we get to the temperature in the room.
  • 29. FACT: These strange creatures think and learn differently.
  • 30. Thinking and learning differs by device.
  • 31. And just having content, or a content strategy isn’t going to necessarily get our message across. WHERE IS THE CONTEXT?!
  • 32. Context Starts Here
  • 33. And Continues Here Melanie Taylor - Potential Malibu Buyer Personal Profile Background Melanie is a hardworking, 31- • 31-year-old female year-old mother of one. • Yoga three times per week • Works as a radiology tech at her local She has never owned a 'new' hospital vehicle and is in market to • Married for 5 years purchase or lease.

  • 34. Content Strategy Is Merely Creating Segments
  • 35. We Owe Our Users More
  • 36. Personal-Behavioral Context DOING FEELING environmental factors, psychological state, stress physical activity, Physical Emotional level, desires, wants, needs habits, disabilities, preferences, sensory stimuli Cognitive LEARNING cognitive assumptions, learning ability, education The "NEW" Persona
  • 37. Personal-Situational Context Task Need Task Task Situation Task Need Need Task Task Task Task Scenario Requiring Content
  • 38. Situational/Behavioral Context Task Need Task Physical Emotional Task Situation Task Need Need Cognitive Task Task Task Task CONTEXTUAL CONTENT STRATEGY
  • 39. What Factors Should We Focus On?
  • 40. Content Planning For Physical Factors • Segmentation Potential (Age, Need vs. Task, etc.) • Disability • Device Type (mobile, laptop, tablet, outdoor, etc.) • Gender • Geolocation • Time • And Many, Many More
  • 41. Content Planning For Emotional Factors • Marital Status • Personalization Tools • Recommendations • User Feedback • Utilization of social and contextual networking data
  • 42. Content Planning For Learning Factors • Familiarity With Content • Education Attained • Learning Disabilities • Reading Level
  • 43. So What Does This All Mean?
  • 44. The Era Of Sameness Is Over • Traditional SEO will suffer • Context based networks will rise • Media opportunities will multiply based on behavioral and situational needs • Increasingly scientific data will become more important to designers and marketers • Our jobs get harder but more fun
  • 45. How We Learn Becomes A HUGE Factor • Different content can be served to target different brain areas • Targeting the brain’s learning centers provides for relevant contextual connections • Content will vary based on sociological, age and emotional factors
  • 46. How We Learn Visually
  • 47. How We Create Meaning: #1 Primary Visual Cortex Sight / Visual based center of learning Activates and delivers information to the Ventral Stream, Dorsal Stream and Cerebral Cortex to create meaning and context.
  • 48. How We Create Meaning: #2 Ventral Stream The Recognition Center The Ventral Stream (left side, Temporal Lobe) figures out what something is visually, like an Apple, or a Computer, etc. It connects images and ideas to words and language.
  • 49. How We Create Meaning: #3 Dorsal Stream The Locator (Physical Space) The Dorsal Stream (Top and rear, Parietal Lobe) figures out what something is spatially. This part of the brain is crucial in mental mapping.
  • 50. How We Create Meaning: #4 Limbic System Center for Emotional Reaction (Feeling) The Limbic System (Inside the Cortical areas) processes emotions and controls our body’s endocrine and automatic nervous systems.
  • 51. Anyone Starting To Feel Like This?
  • 52. Leveraging The Mental Map Shape? Who? What? State? Color? When? Where? Size? Location? Mental Map Visual Data In
  • 53. Getting To This Won’t Be Easy
  • 54. But We Can Start With Basics • Content Filtering Via CMS • Creating new taxonomies to organize related items and think beyond the link • Develop content for the consumer need not for the marketing need • Begin looking at Personas from a behavioral and situational standpoint to plan content • Think about device in content planning
  • 55. And Maybe Soon We Can Be Here Functional MRI With Functional MRI we can record brain stimulation and reaction while a person is totally awake, learning how our designs, web sites and content affect individual operations in the brain.
  • 56. So in reality ...
  • 57. “ CONTEXT is the true King. It’s simply powered by content. ”
  • 58. QUESTIONS?
