Your Advocates' Content Outperforms Your Own: Learn to Leverage Advocates to Create Brand Content


Published on

Brands' increasing need for content is forcing marketers to shift the way they create content and distribute it. Leading marketers are powering advocates to more effectively create content and share the brand's stories.

Advocates create high-quality content that performs better – it is more trusted (92% trust advocate content), receives more engagement (up to 10x) and reduces marketing costs significantly (by 100x).

In this webinar, we'll share the best practices you need to effectively power advocates to create high-performing brand content, including:

-Why advocate content is 100x more effective than brand-created content
-How to find passionate brand advocates and power them to create content that tells your brand story
-How to measure the effectiveness of an advocate-based content strategy

  • We’d love to propose a content hub as a way to organize this lead generation campaign for Jive. The content hub can be specific to each of the verticals you are looking to focus on or can be more general to incorporate all three verticals and maybe more as the campaign grows. We envision leveraging existing Jive eBooks, whitepapers, and webinars to begin lead generation immediately (in the next few slides, I’ll show you how Oracle does this)
  • And let’s start by discussing how we help buyers make better purchasing decisions. Because before we can truly understand what we do for vendors like you, it’s critical to understand what we do for the buyer community.
