For the last decade I have been
creating digital marketing solutions
for businesses large and small. In
that time I’ve learned a few things
about the governance and creation
of web content and how that
content ties into other marketing
channels. Content is often swept
aside as the last part of a project,
when I believe it should be one of
the very first things addressed
(even before design).

Editor's Notes

  1. Selling Guns to Gandhi: The Art of Content Buy-In by Steve Floyd – CEO of AXZM – www.axzm.com/about/steve-floyd
  2. No, I’m not selling any guns (and certainly not to Gandhi) but it can certainly feel that when you are trying to get buy-in for strategic content initiatives.
  3. I got your attention though!
  4. That’s the whole point. You need to stand out among all the other voices in your organization, or your strategy will get pushed to the side for another shiny object.
  5. Let’s be honest here, planning and executing a content strategy is hard.
  6. Getting buy-in for that content strategy can be even harder.
  7. If we want buy-in we need to learn to keep it simple.
  8. Or you may never get the approval you need to implement your strategy.
  9. We give them all this stuff… - STAKEHOLDER INTERVIEWS- BRANDING / STYLE GUIDES - CONTENT AUDIT / INVENTORIES- QUALITATIVE / QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS- KEY MESSAGE ARCHITECTURE- USER / BUYER JOURNEYS - CONTENT MATRIX- CONTENT FLOW DIAGRAMS- METADATA STRATEGY- CONTENT TEMPLATES- WIREFRAMES (HIGH & LOW RES)- CONTENT GOVERNANCE MODEL
  10. And this… Content Matrix
  11. And this… Mind Maps
  12. And this… Content Audits
  13. And this… Personas
  14. And this… Content Templates
  15. And this… Governance Model
  16. And that is all great (and necessary).
  17. But, why are we surprised?
  18. When no one gives a shit.
  19. Or when stakeholders react in a negative way to the extra work you are putting on them? Work they of then do not fully understand.
  20. When senior management and co-workers hate you for trying to take over their content?
  21. All they want is a website. Why all the fuss?
  22. Content strategists know these deliverables are absolutely essential, but it’s not hard to see why there is no buy-in.
  23. This obviously puts us between a rock and hard place.
  24. The key is…
  25. Balance.
  26. Proactively condense and centralizing all your documents in one place for your team is a good idea. This will grease the skids adoption of your strategy.
  27. Give your stakeholders the cliff notes that speak to their initial pain points and KPIs while getting the approval you need to move forward. There is such a thing as too much information.
  28. I know. Sounds like a great theory, but how do I actually do that?!

  37. If we really want buy-in we have to prove our value to the people who write the checks.
  38. You will need ammo to do this. Here it is…
  39. Use every tool in your arsenal (you’re going to need it) and arm yourself with a full clip of data. This will help better inform your content strategy and give you confirmation that the opportunities are there - http://axz.mx/best-tools
  40. Use Google Analytics to track every interaction with your website, so you can continually improve the user experience and conversions. You can also prove the value of the campaigns you are working on with campaign URLs - axz.mx/g-analyze
  41. Set up a Google Analytics dashboard for your company website and track the data points that matter most to your business - axz.mx/ga-dashboards
  42. Use Raventools to manage your ongoing content marketing, social, email and paid efforts. There are also a host of other tools that help you quickly fix technical SEO errors and custom branded reports for your boss / client or customers. - axz.mx/r-tool
  43. Use SEM rush to get traffic estimates on keywords, spy on competitors ad spend and generate reports based on this data. - axz.mx/sem-rusher
  44. Use the Content Analysis Tool by Content Insights to Audit large amounts of content - axz.mx/c-insights
  45. Use Screaming Frog to audit your content on the cheap (FREE & Paid versions) - axz.mx/scream-frog
  46. Let data guide the way, it will set you free - axz.mx/data-sets-free
  47. Your data better be right on the money though, at least if you are going to prove your value, so make sure you do away with vanity metrics that don’t matter to the stakeholder’s bottom line. If it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense.
  48. The C-Suite speaks in the language of money.
  49. They see all this web stuff as a utility of the IT department (but it’s not).
  50. Learn to speak the language.
  51. Be a chameleon and adapt to your environment. Try to understand what makes the stakeholder tick and what they value. Even go as far as to match the style of dress that your stakeholder is most comfortable in. If they are super conservative in $10,000 suites, it’s probably a good idea not to show up in cargos and flip flops. The same could be said about stakeholders who prefer a more casual style. Don’t show up over dressed or you could alienate yourself. It’s all about listening and building trust, so anything you can do to make that process easier do proactively. It will make the process of buy-in go much easier when the decision maker is bought into you, not just the strategy you are trying to get buy-in for.
  52. Once you know what makes them tick and what channels they value most, play to those key interests and sell your strategy around it. For example, if they are all about social media and branding but think SEO is snake oil, skew your presentation towards branding and social. The same could be said about stakeholders who value SEO & PPC to drive sales, but think social media is a waste of time. Make your presentation SEO centric.
  53. How you present your pitch is everything.
  54. 95% of presentations completely suck. Ask yourself if you would buy into the idea you are selling when you look at your presentation. If you can’t design something yourself, pay someone who can. This is a huge factor in how your strategy is perceived.
  55. If your presentation were a car, would it be a beat up old car…
  56. …or a tank. Come out with your guns blazing, they will never know what hit ’em.
  57. Create an experience, not just a pitch. Weave elements of story telling into your presentation that weave all the stakeholder’s biggest organizational pain points into an easily digestible solution. Again, keep it stupid simple. Use metaphors and parables to drive your point across for things that might be over their heads.
  58. Use TinderBox to create, track and manage interactive presentations. - axz.mx/tinder-box
  59. Use BidSketch to create secure, scalable web-based proposals that will speed up your response times and set yourself apart from all the other paperwork on their desk.
  60. We need to sell content strategy in engaging, useful and relevant ways…
  61. Just like the content we advocate.
  62. “First they ignore you, Then they laugh at you, Then they fight you, Then you win.” - Mahatma Gandhi

  65. About Me For the last decade I have been creating digital marketing solutions for businesses large and small. In that time I’ve learned a few things about the governance and creation of web content and how that content ties into other marketing channels. Content is often swept aside as the last part of a project, when I believe it should be one of the very first things addressed (even before design).
