The x
Content marketing is as much about how you create
your content, as it is about how you distribute it. In fact
simply building your content in a different way can have
a massive impact on your content’s total effectiveness.
This presentation is to show you the single greatest thing
you can do to increase your content marketing is to
build your content in a new way. This is the true“X”
Factor of content marketing. Feel free to reach out to
me on Twitter @msweezey to continue the
conversation.

Current IssuesWe need to fully understand the issues with content to understand why
the “X” factor is so important.

- How many different stages in the buying cycle?
- How many emails do you send every month?
- How many blog posts do you create each week?
- How long does it take you to create a piece of content?
- Do you do in house design work?
- Do you have enough time to do all of this? NO!
Businesses
See CONTENT as a vehicle
of commerce.
Consumers
See CONTENT as a vehicle
of self expression, and self
discovery.
ValueConsumers value content completely differently than businesses.
experience is what counts
There is the download you
can track with a metric, but
this only can tell you that
your call to action was
correct.
Following the conversion there is
the experience the person has with
the content, which is either
positive, negative, or null. This is
the measure of the experience you
created. This can not be tracked by
downloads.

Production Time
The processes we use to create content is a hold over from the
industrial revolution. The idea of assembly line production
works great for something's but not in content marketing!
The idea of content
marketing was first mass
publicized in Seth Godin’s
book Permission Based
Marketing in 1999.
Content
Wasn’t a formalized idea until the Agile
Marketing Manifesto created in 2012. A
full 13 years after content marketing was
bought to the masses.

The technology to be agile
simply didn’t exist when
content marketing was
created. We now have
engrained processes which
are not accounting for
current possibilities.

The “X factor is
Agile content
creation. 
We can get better results, faster, and with less work! 	
  
The Agile ProofI can write up all the stats in the world, but this simple math example
will prove to you that the agile way is faster, better, and repeatable.
Even a child can understand the power of agile with this simple proof.
Step 1: Place your pin on the blue dot. Your goal will be to close
your eyes and then draw a straight line to the red dot. Stop when
you get there.
Your line probably looks like this.
Step 2: Now try again, but feel free to stop when ever you want.
Leave your pen on the paper, and open your eyes. Recalibrate,
close your eyes then continue to draw your line. Take as many
stops as you want.
Your second line probably looks like this. You reached your goal,
faster, and with less effort. You can stair at the red dot all you
want, but agile is the only consistently way to get there.
Creativity is no longer a
singular genius, but an
iterative process““
-  David Weinberger, Author and Fellow at Harvard University
Waterfall: 
Agile projects succeed three
times more often than projects
following a waterfall processes
of execution. As well as
spending much less time and at
a significantly lower cost1.

the content has a

Which means you are
less likely to see
consumers having bad
experiences with your
content.
The Agile Process
There are an infinitely growing number of marketing channels which require
content. This brings about a new level of content we must produce. The only way
to create enough content with a high enough success demands a new foundation
on how we execute marketing campaigns. We must learn from other business
departments who have faced similar issues.

Review
It is good to have comparable metrics, but asking
consumers directly is the best feedback you can have on
how to improve your experiences.
•  Was the content you engaged with helpful?
•  How can it be better?
•  What was the best thing you’ve found?ASK
A Telephone does it best
DO NOT use forms, Surveys, or questionnaires to understand the impact of the content
on the consumer experience. They make the customer experience worse, and you will
lose out on your ability to really dig into conversation. Be human, if not there is no way
your content or experiences can be.
HOW MANY ITTERATIONS
The logical question to ask next is, how many times do I have to iterate to get
the results I am looking for? The answer is it depends on your initial starting
point, and how good you are at iterating. This is where your personal “X” factor
will come into play. Your personal “X” factor is how well you are at iterating on
your previous versions.
Agile Math
What the math represents:
FV = Future Value. This score you wish your content will reach in the future.
On a scale from 1-10 if you want your score to be perfect this number would be 10, assuming 10 is the
highest value.
CV = The current score your content is rated.
X = Your x factor, or your ability to iterate on your previous version.
i = The number of iterations it will take you to reach the goal
(FV-CV) - ((FV-CV)*X) = i

ToolsetYou must have the correct toolset to be agile across all channels, and at all
times. This toolset will allow for you to serve the correct content to the correct
people on the correct channel at the correct time. It also will provide the
feedback we need to increase the contents effectiveness, and will do this all
instantly so our iteration cycles can happen quickly.

Bi-Directional Flow
You must have a bi-directional flow of data to be agile. This is
because each asset you create must be able to be dynamically
served up, with feedback being dynamically sent back for
analysis. With out the ability to dynamically serve up content,
and instantly gain insights from the engagement you can not
agile be with your content delivery, or gain the required
insights necessary to have an agile content flow.
You only get 1 shot
You will only get one shot at presenting data to someone. You
will not be remembered, and they will not recall your site. You
have to present the best content you can to help them fulfill
their purpose or you are instantly forgotten, only to be found
again if you show up again in a search. If you do not have a
system of relevance you can not do this either.

The Ad Wars
76% of Facebook’s revenue comes from mobile
advertising2, which is why they have invested so
much into their ad products. This is the key reason
Agile advertising is now possible. You can spawn
up a custom audience in seconds, test multiple ads
with them, and the system automatically promotes
the best preforming one.
Of all advertising
budgets will be
mobile by 2019. 70%

budgets will be
spent on mobile1.

Multiple Copies
The days of having only one advertisement to use is
long gone. In the days of social and dynamic advertising
you can buy multiple variations of the advertisement
and split test them all in real time. The systems will
automatically then serve up the best preforming content
without you lifting a finger. So you can stop arguing on
copy and creative and let your consumers pick for you.
NurturingEmail and Lead Nurturing are also heavy investments in time, and can benefit
from the Agile processes. Consider the following tips to help you increase the
effectiveness of your nurturing campaigns, while decreasing the time you spend
on creating time.
x factor
TIP #1B e a u t h e n t i c 	
  
K.I.S.SThe best emails your company sends
come from the person email outboxes
of your employees. Study these
emails to see why RICH text emails
are out preforming your HTML
emails from your email marketer.
Proof it works
TIP #2
T a k e y o u r t i m e 	
  
An email nurturing program will usually end up
consisting of many emails, however between each
email is a time pause. Rather than creating the
entire program at once, build it 3 emails at a
time. Then see what works, and build 3 more.
Pause
TIP #3
S h a r e t o c a r e 	
  
Other peoples content is a major resource for
your email nurturing emails. Rather than
make new content, learn to find great
content to share. Remember you are
tracking URL’s so anything online is
contnet.

John,
I noticed an article on Content experience,
and thought you might like to give it a look.
John,
There is a video in our resource library on
Lead nurturing best practices, here’s a link to it.
It was recorded with Jay Baer.
John,
I’m not sure if you follow this guy on social. But
If you’re on Twitter you might want to
check out @jaybaer. We’ve just shot a webinar..
Put it all togetherIt doesn’t take 10 minutes to create this nurturing string. Test then make 3 more
JourneysJourneys use to be “Path’s to Purchase” and were linear buying paths.
This is no more due to the speed of the internet and the connectivity of
data. A full buying cycle from idea to purchase can take moments, or it
can take a very long time. It is up to you to recognize the way the person
wants to engage, what they want to engage with, and then dynamically
give it to them. Taking everyone down the same path does not work.

A typical digital journey
now takes on average of 70

Micro Moments
Journeys are made of Micro Moments1
are the seconds a person is engaged
with a specific idea. The triggers will
vary but the want of the person is the
same. They want everything instantly.
This is why they only visit 1.7 webpages,
and 80% of adwords clicks bounce.

Journeys are no longer linear but rather
responsive to the moments of the
consumer. This means you should have lots
of micro journeys rather than long linear
paths. The journeys must be dynamic and
predictive rather than linear paths. These
journeys can only be created in agile
formats.

3 Keys to micro moments
MeetingsAnother major aspect to the Agile process is how we communicate with
each other. This may not seem like a big deal, but companies who
implement the “Daily Stand Up” see team collaboration and
effectiveness dramatically increase. This is not an optional practice, if
you want to be truly fast and agile you must include daily stand ups as a
part of your morning routine with your team.
x factor
What did
you do
yesterday?	
  
What are
you working
on today?	
  
Do you have
any
roadblocks?	
  
Yes you stand up, and it
should never take more
than 5 minutes for the
full team to go.	
  
The mangers job
is to get these out
of the way. 	
  
Simple, and short. Just
to let other team
members know if they
are needed. 	
  
The Three
Questions 
Each stand up begins with
everyone standing in a circle,
and answering three questions.
There is no discussion allowed,
just answering these questions.
All discussions spawned by
these should take place
following the meeting. Total
meeting time for a team of 10
is less than 5 minutes. It is
your job to keep this on track!
C o n c l u s i o n s
The Agile process provides the
instant ability for us to create
better results, faster, and with
less risk. It is the only way to
move forward and the answer to
all content marketing issues.
AGILE

The X Factor for modern
content marketing is in the
process you use. We must
realize the need amount of
marketing we must do is to
great, and the odds of failure
are to high with out following
a process of iteration.

  • 7. experience is what counts There is the download you can track with a metric, but this only can tell you that your call to action was correct. Following the conversion there is the experience the person has with the content, which is either positive, negative, or null. This is the measure of the experience you created. This can not be tracked by downloads.

  • 22. Increased Accuracy High   N1   N2   N3   N4   N5   N6   Low   Translation: Each agile iteration will have a higher degree of accuracy than the previous iteration, yet you are likely to still have some failure in your next attempt. However the degree of failure will also decrease with each attempt.
  • 23. Lower Risk Exposure High   N1   N2   N3   N4   N5   N6   Low   Translation: Each agile iteration of the content has a dramatically less likeliness for failure. Which means you are less likely to see consumers having bad experiences with your content.
  • 24. The Agile Process There are an infinitely growing number of marketing channels which require content. This brings about a new level of content we must produce. The only way to create enough content with a high enough success demands a new foundation on how we execute marketing campaigns. We must learn from other business departments who have faced similar issues.
  • 25. User Stories MVPReview Execute User Stories What responsibilities do they have? What issues do they face? What do they want to learn? Have they found things before they liked?
  • 26. User Stories MVPReview Execute M.V.P. Minimum Viable Product: What is smallest way you can provide value to your core consumer. This is your minimum viable product. Create this, then learn how to improve it.
  • 27. User Stories MVPReview Execute Review It is good to have comparable metrics, but asking consumers directly is the best feedback you can have on how to improve your experiences. •  Was the content you engaged with helpful? •  How can it be better? •  What was the best thing you’ve found?ASK
  • 28. A Telephone does it best DO NOT use forms, Surveys, or questionnaires to understand the impact of the content on the consumer experience. They make the customer experience worse, and you will lose out on your ability to really dig into conversation. Be human, if not there is no way your content or experiences can be.
  • 29. HOW MANY ITTERATIONS The logical question to ask next is, how many times do I have to iterate to get the results I am looking for? The answer is it depends on your initial starting point, and how good you are at iterating. This is where your personal “X” factor will come into play. Your personal “X” factor is how well you are at iterating on your previous versions.
  • 30. Agile Math What the math represents: FV = Future Value. This score you wish your content will reach in the future. On a scale from 1-10 if you want your score to be perfect this number would be 10, assuming 10 is the highest value. CV = The current score your content is rated. X = Your x factor, or your ability to iterate on your previous version. i = The number of iterations it will take you to reach the goal (FV-CV) - ((FV-CV)*X) = i

  • 33. ToolsetYou must have the correct toolset to be agile across all channels, and at all times. This toolset will allow for you to serve the correct content to the correct people on the correct channel at the correct time.

  • 35. Bi-Directional Flow You must have a bi-directional flow of data to be agile. This is because each asset you create must be able to be dynamically served up, with feedback being dynamically sent back for analysis.

  • 41. Multiple Copies The days of having only one advertisement to use is long gone. In the days of social and dynamic advertising you can buy multiple variations of the advertisement and split test them all in real time. The systems will automatically then serve up the best preforming content without you lifting a finger. So you can stop arguing on copy and creative and let your consumers pick for you.

  • 45. TIP #2 T a k e y o u r t i m e   An email nurturing program will usually end up consisting of many emails, however between each email is a time pause. Rather than creating the entire program at once, build it 3 emails at a time. Then see what works, and build 3 more. Pause
  • 46. TIP #3 S h a r e t o c a r e   Other peoples content is a major resource for your email nurturing emails. Rather than make new content, learn to find great content to share. Remember you are tracking URL’s so anything online is contnet. 3rd Party

  • 48. JourneysJourneys use to be “Path’s to Purchase” and were linear buying paths. This is no more due to the speed of the internet and the connectivity of data. A full buying cycle from idea to purchase can take moments, or it can take a very long time. It is up to you to recognize the way the person wants to engage, what they want to engage with, and then dynamically give it to them. Taking everyone down the same path does not work. x factor

This means you should have lots of micro journeys rather than long linear paths. The journeys must be dynamic and predictive rather than linear paths. These journeys can only be created in agile formats.

  • 52. MeetingsAnother major aspect to the Agile process is how we communicate with each other. This may not seem like a big deal, but companies who implement the “Daily Stand Up” see team collaboration and effectiveness dramatically increase. This is not an optional practice, if you want to be truly fast and agile you must include daily stand ups as a part of your morning routine with your team. x factor
  • 53. What did you do yesterday?   What are you working on today?   Do you have any roadblocks?   Yes you stand up, and it should never take more than 5 minutes for the full team to go.   The mangers job is to get these out of the way.   Simple, and short. Just to let other team members know if they are needed.   The Three Questions Each stand up begins with everyone standing in a circle, and answering three questions. There is no discussion allowed, just answering these questions. All discussions spawned by these should take place following the meeting. Total meeting time for a team of 10 is less than 5 minutes. It is your job to keep this on track!

It is the only way to move forward and the answer to all content marketing issues. AGILE The X Factor for modern content marketing is in the process you use. We must realize the need amount of marketing we must do is to great, and the odds of failure are to high with out following a process of iteration.
