The production of content has never been more complex than it is today. The platforms we use, the methodologies we deploy, and the media we use to reach audiences cause marketers to become amazing specialists of several topics. I coined the term Renaissance Marketer to describe the many functions we require. However, when you start to embrace these new talents you are developing, the pressure to get down compels us to go fast rather than focus on value. To Matt Dion, CEO on Mintent, this is a problem he is passionate about and knows platforms like Mintent can assist in the evolution of the marketing team.
"When people hear "slow down", they panic....We live with this "multitask, go hard, sleep when you're dead"...attitude, so the thought of "slow down" sends shivers down managers' spines." Behind this approach to faster is better, you typically find a management team that believes their work is not the same as the other assets and services the company delivers. It's just marketing, so get it done. However, we know as consumers of great content assets, that the finishing touches and thinking about the whole lifecycle of a piece of content help us answer our questions with better accuracy.
In this episode, Matt Dion and Jeff Julian discuss the topic of marketing workflow and how Mintent can help your team perform better. "The approach is now more, "Why are you producing content? What's the impact? What's the purpose of it? How are you gonna know if it's having the impact that you think it will? How are you going to measure it?"
