Purposeful Content Attention - your content needs to get noticed - and not just by anyone - by the audience you've targeted. Awareness - once people have engaged with your content, they should have some thoughts about your company - preferably favorable ones worth remembering. Mindshare - we need people to spend enough time with our content to actually "get" the ideas it's sharing. Anchor - once people have ingested the ideas, your content needs to work to make sure that those ideas take precedence in forming how your audience thinks about the topic. Action - your content is sent out on a mission to get people to DO something. Conversation - beyond the action your content requests, it needs to ensure that the audience has a clear enough understanding that they can now talk with others and share your ideas with them in their own words.? Confidence - the learning your content provides needs to help people feel certain that they know what they need to take the next step...and just what that might be. Competence - your content must provide evidence that your company can actually do what it says it can. Invitation - content must entice people to spend more time with your company - whether through opting in for a newsletter, attending a webinar, subscribing to an RSS feedAuthority - content must inspire reliance on your company for consistently valuable insights
