  • The Content Marketing Imperative For The Argyle Executive Club

    1. What Is Marketing? Ask most people and they will tell you that marketing is an ad, a banner or some kind of promotion. But weren’t there 4 “P’s” in Marketing 101?
    2. 5,000 2/3 86% 44% 90% marketing messages per day of U.S. on the “Do Not Call” list Of people skip TV ads direct mail is never opened of emails are never opened So we support the myth by bombarding our audience with messages they don’t want.
    3. The average attention span of a person has dropped from 12 seconds in 2000 to 8 seconds. This, along with the increasing channels and formats of information available is altering our brains.
    4. The average attention span of a Goldfish is 9 seconds. (Statistic Brain) Goldfish have longer attention spans than the average human today.
    5. Less likely to click on a banner than… Banners have 99 problems and a click ain’t one. Business Insider cheekily reported that you are more likely to get struck by lightning or win the lottery than see a click on your banner.
    6. As a whole society, we’re bored! Bored with content we don’t want.
    7. And this is having a dramatic impact on certain industries like the newspapers who have seen a dramatic loss of nearly $50 billion in revenue since 2000.
    8. 60-70% of marketing content goes completely unused (Sirius Decisions) Almost 70% of your content budget is completely wasted
    9. 73% of people surveyed wouldn’t care if the brands they use disappeared from their life. (Co.Exist) And your customers could care less if you even exist.
    10. Marketing has a marketing problem. And it’s reflected in the interest of global monthly searches over the last decade
    11. But there’s hope. Seth Godin said: “content marketing is all the marketing that’s left” as brands struggle to meet the needs of today’s digital consumer.
    12. What is Marketing? “Marketing is knowing your customer so well that your product sells itself.” - Peter Drucker “Marketing is too important to be left to the marketing department.” - David Packard
    13. http://lucasgalo.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/h-and-g-lg.jpg And that brings us to stories. From the day we emerged from caves, we’ve been telling stories about how to survive and how to thrive.
    14. But it’s not really about the information we convey in stories, it’s about the emotional connection those stories make.
    15. Your customers are expecting you to care more about them than about you. They are expecting you to touch their hearts and inspire their minds.
    16. It’s not just about creating great content, it’s about delivering great content. And then you need to go one step further and pour your fans
