Learning to work smarter, not harder, with content -- advice to marketing content folks from the technical content practice
Is your typical approach to new marketing project to start from scratch? Are you under the gun to do more and more with less time and fewer resources? And are you feeling the pain of that “start from scratch” process considering the current demands on you and your time? This is your invitation to get a peek into the technical content practitioner’s playbook and learn some post-sales content secrets to apply to your pre-sales content projects. You might think technical content folks are geeky recluses who transcribe dry specs and have nothing to share with marketing. This keynote will change your mind and open communication with those technical folks across the aisle.
