Content Paradox - Madhavan Narayanan at the IndiaSocial Summit 2012

  1. 1. Content ParadoxSix Rules to Harness the Chaos Narayanan Madhavan April, 2012
  2. 2. Why we need to ponder, wander and wonder• A century-old revenue model based on advertising/PR is facing a threat – both for brands and publishers• Loser Generated Content may erode a market for remunerative content, Long Tail makes ads difficult to measure• Future of content, business models and brands that relied so far on old-world advertising/public relations are at stake. And intertwined
  3. 3. Rule 1: Content is King-But Attention Will Be Empress • Virality Quotient (VQ) improves visibility of shared content • Attention Quotient (both drawn attention and retained attention) are critical – Draw the horse to water, and make it drink
  4. 4. Rule 2: The Pizza Principle -Content needs to be “repurposed”• Content will be designed like adjustable airline seats or variable pizza toppings, even when the basic stuff is the same• Need for customisation – at low cost/effort
  5. 5. Rule 3. “Feel Factor” will replace “Form Factor” • Content is received inside your brain, heart and mind • Are they GENUINELY INTERESTED? • No 30-second commercial, no A4 paper, no Berliner
  6. 6. Rule 4: Contentdiscovery is an industry • Search engines are chaotic, inadequate still – long way to go • Social media triggers a zillion points of intervention • Kumbh Mela Syndrome
  7. 7. Rule 5. Branding is about reputation, not recall • Social buzz, social CRM will be countervailing forces • Advertising, PR are active. Social buzz is interactive • Low-cost, high-impact branding feasible. Your rival knows it
  8. 8. Rule 6. Sponsor content, raise your brand• Coke Studio/Binaca Geetmala/Bournvita Quiz contests/ITC Sangeet- Research Academy#youremember• Abandon demographic obsession• CSR meets content meets branding• Ride the reputation wave
  9. 9. Why ride culture, when you can shape it?• Repurpose• Restructure• Relate Courtesy:Searchengineland.com
