relevant and valuable content to attract, acquire, and engage a clearly defined and
understood target audience – with the objective of driving profitable customer action.”

exercises we’ll help you with
Brand Map Framework
Audience
The content that you publish largely depends on your target audience – their interests, behaviors and motivations. This demographic plays a key role in your content creation and distribution process.
The publications you license content from, the topics you write about and the distribution channels that you use.
What is your target demographic? What kind of publications does your audience
read?
What social channels does your audience
frequently engage on?
What events does your audience care about?
Brand Strategy
Understanding your brand's identity is key to understanding the type of content that your brand should source and create. Content marketing should always convey your unique brand personality
consistently, from the photos that you publish to the blog posts that you create.
What is your brand’s ambition or purpose? What is your brand voice? What are the design principles of your brand’s
visual identity?
What owned assets (color, typeface, etc.)
signal your brand?
Content Strategy
Our mission is to help brands simplify and scale their entire content marketing process: content planning, discovery, creation, publishing, distribution and measurement. Understanding your current
process and challenges as well as your future goals will help us shape a content marketing strategy unique to your brand, resources, internal creative/compliance processes.
Who is the organization responsible
for your content strategy?
What does your current content
workflow look like?
Do you currently use a mix of
content types (original, licensed,
social, etc.)?
What do you like about your content
marketing strategy and what do you
want to change?
What are your content pillars?
What are your SEO keyword
priorities? What longtail keywords
are you interested in?
What type of content do you want to
feature?
What products or services (if any)
do you want us to keep in mind?
Are there specific geographic
regions or cities we should keep in
mind?
Which social channels would you
like to prioritize? What is your ideal
content cadence?
Distribution Strategy
Distribution is just as important as the content itself. It is important to understand which channels will reach your target audience and how you should share content across each channel.
What channels do you use for organic distribution? What channels do you use for paid distribution? What demand generation programs do you use?

This demographic plays a key role in your content creation and distribution process. The publications you license content from, the topics you write about and the distribution channels that you use. What is your target demographic? What kind of publications does your audience read? What social channels does your audience frequently engage on? What events does your audience care about? Brand Strategy Understanding your brand's identity is key to understanding the type of content that your brand should source and create. Content marketing should always convey your unique brand personality consistently, from the photos that you publish to the blog posts that you create. What is your brand’s ambition or purpose? What is your brand voice? What are the design principles of your brand’s visual identity? What owned assets (color, typeface, etc.) signal your brand? Content Strategy Our mission is to help brands simplify and scale their entire content marketing process: content planning, discovery, creation, publishing, distribution and measurement. Understanding your current process and challenges as well as your future goals will help us shape a content marketing strategy unique to your brand, resources, internal creative/compliance processes. Who is the organization responsible for your content strategy? What does your current content workflow look like? Do you currently use a mix of content types (original, licensed, social, etc.)? What do you like about your content marketing strategy and what do you want to change? What are your content pillars? What are your SEO keyword priorities? What longtail keywords are you interested in? What type of content do you want to feature? What products or services (if any) do you want us to keep in mind? Are there specific geographic regions or cities we should keep in mind? Which social channels would you like to prioritize? What is your ideal content cadence? Distribution Strategy Distribution is just as important as the content itself. It is important to understand which channels will reach your target audience and how you should share content across each channel. What channels do you use for organic distribution? What channels do you use for paid distribution? What demand generation programs do you use?

Editor's Notes

  1. The #1 questions we seeing from our customers
  2. We’ve all asked the question, why content marketing? To set the stage, there’s been a fundamental shift in the way we as consumers consume and share content. Momentous amount of content being created, consumed and shared. An amazing amount of content, the real question is how does a brand stand apart?
  3. I think you can all see that there’s just an amazing about of fundamental change that’s happened in marketing in a short amount of time.
  4. The secret to content marketing is that its not that hard. There are obstacles, but what we’re going to do is give you our secrets and let you know what’s worked for other brands to drive a content marketing strategy.
  5. Not only are we going to give you tips and tricks but also make it very practical
  6. The secret, content marketing is relatively simple. The buyer journey is just a series of question to be answered and we as brands have a role to play. Its simply to answer the customer questions.
  7. A more complex view, content marketing explained on a page. What types of different content we consume at different parts of the buyer journey. Awareness, we’re wanting to learn, get our questions answered and read thought leadership. Consideration, we want more types of content. By Preference, there’s less thought leadership and learning, and more about what makes your brand different.
  8. The formal definition of content marketing. NOT advertising or PR – important About helping your customers answer those questions in the journey they’re taking Owned media – its specifically content that lives on a brand owned media.
  9. For you, it’s a customer behind every one of those content interactions. We need to keep in mind there’s a person, not an undefined entity of customers.
  10. As a brand, our natural instinct is to talk about ourselves. Customers are asking questions, they want to be informed and entertained, but we can’t just do that because that’s just charity. So the way we balance is make your customers the hero of the story. Take your brand out. How do you do that? You solve their problems at every stage of the journey.
  11. Core components the way we need to think. We need to think different.
  12. How do I put forth my unique point of view? That’s a brand objective. Customers don’t want to know how your help is different, they just want to be helped. Most of the problem we have is in the beginning stages. The brands that win are the brands helping their customers the most.
  13. The brands that are effective do these 6 things: 2. Doesn’t mean they have a chief content officer, just means someone has the responsibility and accountability of managing content as an asset. 3. Differentiator is that its content that’s helpful. 4. Important to understand the gaps you have in delivering helpful content to your customers 5. The traditional way the industry has looked at paid is advertising. Content marketing is the exact opposite. You're going to earn the attention of your customers. 6. What we see is the people whoa re effective at measuring content marketing ROI are those who commit to measuring it.
  14. If you don’t’ have that new way of thinking, you’re going to have a problem being productive Content is not a marketing problem. Everyone in an organization is affected by content, directly or indirectly. It means you deliver content an audience wants and they monetize it. Demonstrate value for your own business.
  15. Effective content marketers are 5 times more likely to have a DOCUMENTED content strategy.
  16. Why you are in business and what value you’re providing? Establish your own why. How are you going to achieve that goal? Most brands make the mistake of jumping into the pool of what. What am I going to publish? But they haven't thought it through.
  17. Discover – What is the business case and what is the need for change? We have to point to the things that aren’t working. We need to have the courage to stand up to our executives and show what’s working and what’s not. Current state. Where are you currently? Budget – there’s enough of ineffective spend you can repurpose. Destination – where and how you’re going to publish. design, platform to support, where, activity on the destination you choose, and how the rest of your organization is going to integrate. Topic Models – Topics you want to be known for when thinking of you target audience. Customer Journey– We can’t show someone read a piece of content and bought something.
  18. Help your customers with something. Do their jobs better, become heroes. You need to fill in the blanks.
  19. Decide your goals: Drive deeper engagement with new people? Or with people already engaged with your brand.
  20. These are not all necessarily people, but instead responsibilities. One of my first hires was a curator. Someone who finds and repurposes the best content from around the web. Look at what your audience is interested in. SEO on the other hand, understand what kind of content you need to create.
  21. How can you help the people around your organization and get them on board with the goals you're trying to achieve? Who's’ going to sign off on content? Approval processes for what get’s published when and where? Google docs and spreadsheets don’t cut it.
  22. Is it an on brand or off-brand strategy? Depends on your brand and goals. Timeline – totally unbranded. Off-branded domain. Branding that’s almost invisible. Monster – you can see its completely in line with their corporate website. Logo, typography, similar structure. Pepsi pulse – completely reinvented their website. Seeking to be a destination about anything about pop culture.
  23. A content audit is important because it helps you understand the level of the content issues you have. Help you determine where you have performance issues.
  24. No matter where you are in your content marketing strategy, NewsCred's Strategy Services team can help ensure you're successful. Not only do we provide 24/7 global product support, but we also offer daily editorial curation and can help set your long-term strategy with customized consultations, workshops and brainstorms.
  25. 94% of all the content we were creating was for late and middle stages. Most of the content we made was promotional…why we were better. However, more people are in the early stage, so we were completely upside down.
  26. You want to be the source of truth for them
  27. A lot of people jump to topics. Google trends, competitors, online properties serving needs. Thinking about topics and architecture is an important step.
  28. Licensed content is a great way to achieve scale and help folks understand the topic you’re interested in. As you get to the bottom, that’s where you’re looking at different types of content.
  29. Finding the right combination of licensed content, original content and social content is key to executing a well-rounded content strategy. Licensed content gives you an easy way to access a high-volume of content from credible sources, allowing you to boost publishing cadence. Original content gives you the ability to share hyper-targeted stories which resonate with your audience and are optimized for SEO. Social content allows you to always stay topical and publish content that is buzzworthy and trending. Co-created content. We call this combination The Rule Of Thirds – a starting point. AS you’re publishgin you can optimize.. Diversifying your content strategy allows you to scale in a way
  30. Distribution is the biggest mistake we see marketers make.
  31. Make sure your social accounts demonstrate interaction. You want to interact with who you’re trying to reach. How many of your own posts you’re going to share? Or sharing other people’s content and influencers. You’ll see your social channels will grow. You want to help your authors and contributors as much as you can. You want to think of this as a mix of what you’re doing.
  32. Corporate websites bounce rate are down at 40% because the only people going there are those who want to be there
  33. Tracking over the course of a year.
  34. Are we gaining traffic from organic and social. Up and to the right.
  35. The most comprehensive. Now strategy services to help every step of the way. Team of strategists.
  36. We work with amazing brands who are working with us.
  37. 21 questions helping you find out who’s your audience…
  38. Key words appropriate
  39. Not just about counting the volume.
  40. Is the KEY differentiator for brands that are effective. Figure our what kind of content they share. Start publishing and then optimize off of that. Distribute the winners.
  41. Practical Biggest mistake – point of view trap. If you’re taking your brand out of the story. Not important in the early stages. Commit to being differentiator by taking yourself out of the conversation at first. Too many focus on volume. Want to publish good stuff. Set a quality bar first and drive twoards wality goals next. #2. Content marketing and SEO are connected. The amount of people doing initial searches. Engage them then. The kinds of questions our customers were asking, we were answering. 3 levers to pull when thinking of content marketing ROI. Just do an audit your organization creates and see how much of that is not used. All of the content you create has a cost and if its not used it’s a waste. Performance – a lot of ways to think about it. The cost of email subscribers, the value of a lead. Every brand we’ve seen that’s sought to measure it and been able to do so and has seen growth. 4x ROI Advice for teams of one: I was a team of one at a startup and I had no budget. Our website wasn’t answering our customer’s questions. Made it my mission to answer their questions. I saw a complete hockey stick in lift. If you are the head of marketing, content marketing is your main job. How to come up with ideas? Growth hacks – one trick – take content your company is already creating and repurpose it. Turn it into a slideshare, turn it into a blog post, interview the experts. Look at your email outbox. Every email you send is an answer to a question. Advantages/disadvantages of branded/non-branded – if you currently make too much branded content and you have a trust issue. Going off-domain may help you. If you’re currently known for something negative, but you want to be known for something positive.
