Digital Asset Management:
Three Tickets To The Blockbuster
Content Marketing Show
By RobeRt Rose, Chief Strategist, Content Marketing Institute

welcome
North Plains are delighted to sponsor “Digital Asset Management: Three Tickets to the Blockbuster Content
Marketing Show”, in association with the Content Marketing Institute (CMI).
Marketing has changed and the number of channels and touch points deployed to reach customers is evolving
and expanding at a fast pace. The volume of digital assets needed to fuel the content machine is also growing
not don’t have the processes in place to be able to do so.
This paper showcases how with Digital Asset Management at the heart of the content marketing process,
organisations can keep up with the demand for “real-time” blockbuster content. Robert Rose walks us through
a three-step best practice model for digital asset management and demonstrates the interdependency of
successful content marketing strategy upon the “Integration, Optimisation and Accessibility” of these assets.
We hope you find it both useful and engaging and North Plains and the CMI welcome your thoughts and feedback.

Marketing Has Changed – But We Haven’t
2
014 may be a pivotal point in the idea of product companies actually evolving into media brands.
The Lego Movie, which has to date earned almost $500 million worldwide, is also very likely to be the
first movie produced and sponsored by a product company to win an Academy Award® . This is huge
for content marketing.
Now certainly the idea that consumer activities, as well as their buying habits, are shifting is nothing new.
And the idea of brands-as-publishers is certainly a well-worn subject. As a result you would think that the
content marketing process – infused into the larger strategy - would start to resemble that of a publisher,
newsroom, or multi-media company rather than a traditional, campaign focused department. As my
colleague Joe Pulizzi put it:
“Your customers don’t care about you, your products, your services… they care about themselves, their wants
and their needs. Content marketing is about creating interesting information your customers are passionate
about so they actually pay attention to you.”
But here’s the thing – in most cases it’s just not happening this way.
Even though many companies will acknowledge the fundamental shift in the way that consumers behave,
buy, and engage with the brands they choose to do business with, they seem unwilling or unable to
change the process by which they engage these consumers. To put it simply: marketing has changed, but
in many cases the brand hasn’t.
It’s not a stretch to say that for global organizations, any successful transformation into actually acting like
a publisher means that the approach to digital asset management must also fundamentally change. The
simple equation is this: consumer habits and demands have changed, so our process for meeting those
demands have changed, and thus our tools for facilitating those processes must also change.

Digital Asset management:
It’s Not How Quickly We Do – It’s How Quickly We Can Do More
Gartner reports that the operations that support digital are getting an increasing share of the marketing budget.
More specifically, that the digital operation share has increased “with annual digital operating budgets totaling
3.1% of a company’s revenue in 2013, as compared with 2.6% in 2012.”i
This is an increase of 20% in one year.
have been able to evolve and transform alongside, and into,
the new era of multi-channel, real time, customer experience
management. Successful marketing teams have recognized
that digital agility is essential for marketers today. But now,
even as content marketing emerges, the idea of real-time
advertising is just around the corner. According to some, it will
move from 8% to 28% worldwide as a percentage of digital
advertising spend over the next year.ii
This means that it’s
not only content marketing that will require the enterprise to
produce more assets, it’s the need to publish more and more
relevant assets for real-time relevance as well. Ultimately,
businesses will not only create MORE assets – they will do so at
an exponentially increasing rate.
You can see this trend happening with media companies as
well. Movie production companies are increasingly placing
bets on “micro-budget” movies and investing in a much wider
portfolio of films, as well as changing the process of how they
create, manage, and produce their assets. So – how do brands
start to make this fundamental transition of their process? How
do they get themselves into new processes that enable them to
produce blockbuster content that engages customers?
At CMI we’ve seen that there are a combination of three tickets – that used together can provide a much more
Integration, Optimization, and Accessibility. Let’s get all three in our hands.
INTEGRATION
OPTIMIZATION
ACCESSIBILITY
Doing more, faster –
and ensuring a seamless
experience across
digital channels.
Ensuring that teams
across disparate locations
and functions can actually
do things they need to do.
Ensuring that the internal
contributors stay engaged
and use the system
consitently.

Integration:
The Ticket To Delivering More Agility
Historically, marketing was a simpler, more linear process than it is today. Think of the Madmen era when it
would all start with the Product Development team conceiving and constructing a product or service. The next
it to the marketing team or external advertising agency. These guys would then come up with a catchy slogan,
snappy copy, and great visuals for the local or regional sales teams to take and deliver it to their targeted buying
audience via print, television, radio or POP (point of purchase). A handful of channels. Done. Simple.
In today’s successful content marketing and real-time focus it takes a village to deliver assets, and it’s a process
that is never ever finished. It takes the collaboration of internal teams – Marketing, Sales, Legal, Product
Development – with coordinated external resources – from ad buying and creative agencies, to translation
services and SEO experts – to bring the targeted audiences the right message, at the right time, through their
(recognized) preferred channel.
and store their digital assets. The challenge – how to bring them all together?
And even without the requirements of “real-time” there are more of them to bring together than ever before.
Companies are moving away from the model of single agency outsourcing, engaging with more, specialized
agencies to meet their specific digital and content marketing needs. More agencies means more assets being
intellectual property.
that Digital Asset Management solutions should enable the entire marketing ecosystem by integrating their
brainstorming to final asset production, bringing seamless integration with marketing automation platforms or
marketing resource management systems, or being able to automate and streamline the end-to-end marketing
process itself. The Digital Asset Management system can be the key that unlocks the agility that marketers need
to keep up with their audiences’ ever evolving demands.
6
optimization:
The Ticket To Connecting Teams
In the past marketers relied upon and worked with their local contacts and connections to get the product
brochure, signage, website, technical documentation, video, or magazine feature through production and into
to leverage in order to meet the deadline.
While it is still great to surprise the graphics guru
with a latté, or treat the lawyer who writes the legal
disclaimers with his favorite flavored cronut, it
isn’t exactly agile, and not always possible if they
happen to be sitting in another city, or just as likely,
another country.
Today’s DAM solutions can be the perfect place for
that optimization, as this technology platform has
become, for many, the centerpiece of their company’s
marketing ecosystem. It now can help streamline and
facilitate the many activities involved in developing
and delivering something as simple as a single
piece of collateral or as complex as a multi-channel
global campaign. From collaboration and design tool integration, to version control, security, and metadata
management – this can all be made easier via a DAM’s workflow and functional capabilities. As the hub of all
marketing activities, the DAM needs to be the conversation coordinator between:
Teams; local and dispersed,
Teams and suppliers, and
Companies and customers.
Today’s Digital Asset Management solution should shatter the traditional, myopic, storage focused view of
assets to rather include workflow that integrates the spectrum of contributors, influencers, and external
contributors into the marketing ecosystem. Marketing is now so much more than a create-iterate-complete
endeavor. Marketers now have to track and manage access rights, trademark, and other restrictions of use. They
need to know where an asset has been used – digitally and in print – as well as who has actually seen it, and
A 2013 Custom Content
Council survey found that
61% of consumers say they
feel better about, and are
more likely to buy from,
a company that delivers
custom content.iii

if they were moved enough to engage in its call-
to-action. So workflow has to go beyond getting
the initial task completed, it has to support the
distribution and evolution of the assets as well.
At a recent conference a CMO of a technology
company estimated that 70% of his (marketing)
budget has to do in some way with creating digital
media, and that optimizing that spend was central
to his mission to grow revenue without increasing
content marketers” are creating “more” or “significantly more” content than they did one year ago. This is
marketers need to be able to create more and more collateral to fit the idiosyncratic aspects of the new
channel, as well as the device type it can be consumed on. Centralizing and optimizing content marketing
activities within a DAM solution can help keep costs in check.
Two out of three marketers
have moved at least 30%
of their budgets from
traditional to digital media
in the past three years.iv
8
Accessibility:
In the early days of the technology, companies looked upon DAM solutions as a storage tool; a dumping
ground for files of all types to be stored for re-use or archived to make way for new versions, which would
assume, that what they need is there, but have no idea of how to retrieve, let alone leverage, the vast array
of valuable files and information residing within their Digital Asset Management platform. The net, and quite
ironic, result is that many users go around the existing DAM solution and still use email and/or shared drives to
store assets because it’s just so hard and slow to utilize the existing central solution.
Companies spend large portions of their marketing
budgets on the generation of digital assets, and
there are savings to be realized by increasing the
accessibility of those assets. By leveraging today’s
digital asset management capabilities – the ability
to manage metadata, categorize content, as well as
search and retrieve files from a single interface – can
help make today’s marketing dollars go much further.
digital asset management can lead to the ability to actually produce more digital assets.
However, in order to do this, everyone needs to know what is available and then how to best use the platform.
Today’s solution needs to be in the hands of all marketers, not just a few; everyone involved from idea
conception through to delivery of the finished product, and on-going iterations. Digital assets have to support
old school main stays as well as new school multi-channel marketing, and bring them together to deliver
a unified experience; from a localized print catalogue to mobile push messages to an exceptional in-store
experience to finally an online ecommerce purchase.
the hands of their agencies. Tasks such as include scaling and cropping an image for reuse, or taking a
snippet from a longer video to post on Facebook or YouTube. Being able to quickly leverage existing media
files in multiple shapes and sizes from directly within a DAM solution makes meeting customer experience
expectations that much easier.
Content creation is
ranked as the single most
v

Content is important, and will continue to be more important. The pressure is on for marketers to not
only generate increasingly high quality content, but to do so quickly and responsively in order to deliver a
day-to-day marketing activities. These theoretical and speculative visions need to be replaced with a new,
more agile market approach; one that focuses on putting messaging content out there, and then adapting the
message to keep a customer’s attention once it is attained. Today’s Digital Asset Management solutions can
help by:
Integrating people, processes, technology, and information to allow for agile management of the asset
and associated processes throughout the asset’s lifecycle.
Facilitating accessibility to those involved in the content marketing process, as well as make accessible
all content types, not just rich media.
Optimizing content marketing processes thereby enabling customer experience management excellence.
As brands recognize the need to not only look like media companies, but actually become media
companies, agility in digital asset management will be critical. This means starting with something simple,
understanding that there is always room for improvement, then quickly and continuously making those
improvements based on insights garnered via direct feedback and supporting data.
Whether it is solving a customer care challenge, promoting a new product or service, or just keeping/
getting an audience informed, a well organized, integrated, and accessible digital asset management
strategy can be the hub of delighting audiences across the engagement journey. By connecting content
teams, campaigns, channels, and customers via workflows and common structures, marketing activities
become more transparent and effective, and results more predictively successful. It’s the sure ticket to a
blockbuster strategy.

Digital Asset Management: Three Tickets To The Blockbuster Content Marketing Show

  • 1. Digital Asset Management: Three Tickets To The Blockbuster Content Marketing Show By RobeRt Rose, Chief Strategist, Content Marketing Institute
  • 2. 2 welcome North Plains are delighted to sponsor “Digital Asset Management: Three Tickets to the Blockbuster Content Marketing Show”, in association with the Content Marketing Institute (CMI). Marketing has changed and the number of channels and touch points deployed to reach customers is evolving and expanding at a fast pace. The volume of digital assets needed to fuel the content machine is also growing not don’t have the processes in place to be able to do so. This paper showcases how with Digital Asset Management at the heart of the content marketing process, organisations can keep up with the demand for “real-time” blockbuster content. Robert Rose walks us through a three-step best practice model for digital asset management and demonstrates the interdependency of successful content marketing strategy upon the “Integration, Optimisation and Accessibility” of these assets. We hope you find it both useful and engaging and North Plains and the CMI welcome your thoughts and feedback.
  • 3. 3 INtRoDUctIoN Marketing Has Changed – But We Haven’t 2 014 may be a pivotal point in the idea of product companies actually evolving into media brands. The Lego Movie, which has to date earned almost $500 million worldwide, is also very likely to be the first movie produced and sponsored by a product company to win an Academy Award® . This is huge for content marketing. Now certainly the idea that consumer activities, as well as their buying habits, are shifting is nothing new. And the idea of brands-as-publishers is certainly a well-worn subject. As a result you would think that the content marketing process – infused into the larger strategy - would start to resemble that of a publisher, newsroom, or multi-media company rather than a traditional, campaign focused department. As my colleague Joe Pulizzi put it: “Your customers don’t care about you, your products, your services… they care about themselves, their wants and their needs. Content marketing is about creating interesting information your customers are passionate about so they actually pay attention to you.” But here’s the thing – in most cases it’s just not happening this way. Even though many companies will acknowledge the fundamental shift in the way that consumers behave, buy, and engage with the brands they choose to do business with, they seem unwilling or unable to change the process by which they engage these consumers. To put it simply: marketing has changed, but in many cases the brand hasn’t. It’s not a stretch to say that for global organizations, any successful transformation into actually acting like a publisher means that the approach to digital asset management must also fundamentally change. The simple equation is this: consumer habits and demands have changed, so our process for meeting those demands have changed, and thus our tools for facilitating those processes must also change.
  • 4. 4 Digital Asset management: It’s Not How Quickly We Do – It’s How Quickly We Can Do More Gartner reports that the operations that support digital are getting an increasing share of the marketing budget. More specifically, that the digital operation share has increased “with annual digital operating budgets totaling 3.1% of a company’s revenue in 2013, as compared with 2.6% in 2012.”i This is an increase of 20% in one year. have been able to evolve and transform alongside, and into, the new era of multi-channel, real time, customer experience management. Successful marketing teams have recognized that digital agility is essential for marketers today. But now, even as content marketing emerges, the idea of real-time advertising is just around the corner. According to some, it will move from 8% to 28% worldwide as a percentage of digital advertising spend over the next year.ii This means that it’s not only content marketing that will require the enterprise to produce more assets, it’s the need to publish more and more relevant assets for real-time relevance as well. Ultimately, businesses will not only create MORE assets – they will do so at an exponentially increasing rate. You can see this trend happening with media companies as well. Movie production companies are increasingly placing bets on “micro-budget” movies and investing in a much wider portfolio of films, as well as changing the process of how they create, manage, and produce their assets. So – how do brands start to make this fundamental transition of their process? How do they get themselves into new processes that enable them to produce blockbuster content that engages customers? At CMI we’ve seen that there are a combination of three tickets – that used together can provide a much more Integration, Optimization, and Accessibility. Let’s get all three in our hands. INTEGRATION OPTIMIZATION ACCESSIBILITY Doing more, faster – and ensuring a seamless experience across digital channels. Ensuring that teams across disparate locations and functions can actually do things they need to do. Ensuring that the internal contributors stay engaged and use the system consitently.
  • 5. 5 Integration: The Ticket To Delivering More Agility Historically, marketing was a simpler, more linear process than it is today. Think of the Madmen era when it would all start with the Product Development team conceiving and constructing a product or service. The next it to the marketing team or external advertising agency. These guys would then come up with a catchy slogan, snappy copy, and great visuals for the local or regional sales teams to take and deliver it to their targeted buying audience via print, television, radio or POP (point of purchase). A handful of channels. Done. Simple. In today’s successful content marketing and real-time focus it takes a village to deliver assets, and it’s a process that is never ever finished. It takes the collaboration of internal teams – Marketing, Sales, Legal, Product Development – with coordinated external resources – from ad buying and creative agencies, to translation services and SEO experts – to bring the targeted audiences the right message, at the right time, through their (recognized) preferred channel. and store their digital assets. The challenge – how to bring them all together? And even without the requirements of “real-time” there are more of them to bring together than ever before. Companies are moving away from the model of single agency outsourcing, engaging with more, specialized agencies to meet their specific digital and content marketing needs. More agencies means more assets being intellectual property. that Digital Asset Management solutions should enable the entire marketing ecosystem by integrating their brainstorming to final asset production, bringing seamless integration with marketing automation platforms or marketing resource management systems, or being able to automate and streamline the end-to-end marketing process itself. The Digital Asset Management system can be the key that unlocks the agility that marketers need to keep up with their audiences’ ever evolving demands.
  • 6. 6 optimization: The Ticket To Connecting Teams In the past marketers relied upon and worked with their local contacts and connections to get the product brochure, signage, website, technical documentation, video, or magazine feature through production and into to leverage in order to meet the deadline. While it is still great to surprise the graphics guru with a latté, or treat the lawyer who writes the legal disclaimers with his favorite flavored cronut, it isn’t exactly agile, and not always possible if they happen to be sitting in another city, or just as likely, another country. Today’s DAM solutions can be the perfect place for that optimization, as this technology platform has become, for many, the centerpiece of their company’s marketing ecosystem. It now can help streamline and facilitate the many activities involved in developing and delivering something as simple as a single piece of collateral or as complex as a multi-channel global campaign. From collaboration and design tool integration, to version control, security, and metadata management – this can all be made easier via a DAM’s workflow and functional capabilities. As the hub of all marketing activities, the DAM needs to be the conversation coordinator between: Teams; local and dispersed, Teams and suppliers, and Companies and customers. Today’s Digital Asset Management solution should shatter the traditional, myopic, storage focused view of assets to rather include workflow that integrates the spectrum of contributors, influencers, and external contributors into the marketing ecosystem. Marketing is now so much more than a create-iterate-complete endeavor. Marketers now have to track and manage access rights, trademark, and other restrictions of use. They need to know where an asset has been used – digitally and in print – as well as who has actually seen it, and A 2013 Custom Content Council survey found that 61% of consumers say they feel better about, and are more likely to buy from, a company that delivers custom content.iii
  • 7. 7 if they were moved enough to engage in its call- to-action. So workflow has to go beyond getting the initial task completed, it has to support the distribution and evolution of the assets as well. At a recent conference a CMO of a technology company estimated that 70% of his (marketing) budget has to do in some way with creating digital media, and that optimizing that spend was central to his mission to grow revenue without increasing content marketers” are creating “more” or “significantly more” content than they did one year ago. This is marketers need to be able to create more and more collateral to fit the idiosyncratic aspects of the new channel, as well as the device type it can be consumed on. Centralizing and optimizing content marketing activities within a DAM solution can help keep costs in check. Two out of three marketers have moved at least 30% of their budgets from traditional to digital media in the past three years.iv
  • 8. 8 Accessibility: In the early days of the technology, companies looked upon DAM solutions as a storage tool; a dumping ground for files of all types to be stored for re-use or archived to make way for new versions, which would assume, that what they need is there, but have no idea of how to retrieve, let alone leverage, the vast array of valuable files and information residing within their Digital Asset Management platform. The net, and quite ironic, result is that many users go around the existing DAM solution and still use email and/or shared drives to store assets because it’s just so hard and slow to utilize the existing central solution. Companies spend large portions of their marketing budgets on the generation of digital assets, and there are savings to be realized by increasing the accessibility of those assets. By leveraging today’s digital asset management capabilities – the ability to manage metadata, categorize content, as well as search and retrieve files from a single interface – can help make today’s marketing dollars go much further. digital asset management can lead to the ability to actually produce more digital assets. However, in order to do this, everyone needs to know what is available and then how to best use the platform. Today’s solution needs to be in the hands of all marketers, not just a few; everyone involved from idea conception through to delivery of the finished product, and on-going iterations. Digital assets have to support old school main stays as well as new school multi-channel marketing, and bring them together to deliver a unified experience; from a localized print catalogue to mobile push messages to an exceptional in-store experience to finally an online ecommerce purchase. the hands of their agencies. Tasks such as include scaling and cropping an image for reuse, or taking a snippet from a longer video to post on Facebook or YouTube. Being able to quickly leverage existing media files in multiple shapes and sizes from directly within a DAM solution makes meeting customer experience expectations that much easier. Content creation is ranked as the single most v
  • 9. 9 Content is important, and will continue to be more important. The pressure is on for marketers to not only generate increasingly high quality content, but to do so quickly and responsively in order to deliver a day-to-day marketing activities. These theoretical and speculative visions need to be replaced with a new, more agile market approach; one that focuses on putting messaging content out there, and then adapting the message to keep a customer’s attention once it is attained. Today’s Digital Asset Management solutions can help by: Integrating people, processes, technology, and information to allow for agile management of the asset and associated processes throughout the asset’s lifecycle. Facilitating accessibility to those involved in the content marketing process, as well as make accessible all content types, not just rich media. Optimizing content marketing processes thereby enabling customer experience management excellence. As brands recognize the need to not only look like media companies, but actually become media companies, agility in digital asset management will be critical. This means starting with something simple, understanding that there is always room for improvement, then quickly and continuously making those improvements based on insights garnered via direct feedback and supporting data. Whether it is solving a customer care challenge, promoting a new product or service, or just keeping/ getting an audience informed, a well organized, integrated, and accessible digital asset management strategy can be the hub of delighting audiences across the engagement journey. By connecting content teams, campaigns, channels, and customers via workflows and common structures, marketing activities become more transparent and effective, and results more predictively successful. It’s the sure ticket to a blockbuster strategy.
