In 2007, Scott Gant declared: we're all journalists now. Now, five years later, being a lone journalist is not enough. For brands and organizations to remain relevant in the news cycle and with their audiences, becoming well-oiled publishing machines is a necessity.

In this presentation, JESS3 co-founder and President, Leslie Bradshaw, shares her insights on how to approach the monumental task of creating around-the-clock content for an always-hungry digital world. Her three-tiered approach to content creation is the secret sauce: content that is pre-made for day-to-day, ready to wear for week-to-week and bespoke for a larger impact.

Originally presented for the Mediabistro Social Media Boot Camp seminar "Storytelling Through Social Media" on March 1, 2012.
