  • 1. Marketing Content: Bringing Structure to Articles, Blog Posts and More Krista Thomas VP Marketing & Communications, OpenCalais
  • 2. The Marketing-Communications Dilemma
    • The echo chamber of news and disparate conversations can bury your message
    • Advertising, Direct Marketing & PR are no longer the only ways to get ideas out there
    • Social media conversations require fuel and constant feeding
    • Hence we must market our own “content” today – blog posts, whitepapers, PPTs, videos, etc.
    • Every company can and must be its own media company  “report” your own story.

    • You feed your content into an extraction engine
    • It categorizes the stories; finds the people, places, companies, facts and events, and then returns that metadata to you
    • Along with the metadata, it returns links to free data on the open Web (i.e. Wikipedia, CIA World Fact book, IMDB, etc.)
    • You use the metadata to streamline content ops, enhance your content, create topic hubs on the fly, improve search, etc.
