Doug Kessler, Co-founder and Creative Director of Velocity Partners, knows a thing or two about putting on a good show. During this show, Doug tells us about what he believes marketers need to do as they move into new media types with Content Marketing.
One of the points Doug drives home during the interview is the need to get out of your comfort zone. B2B is beyond the period of boring campaigns and brochures. Companies like Volvo, Blendtec, and Moz have led the way to create rich and engaging content that excites their customers and leads to more engagement.
As a parting thought for a struggling Content Marketer, Doug suggests you insist on a one-page content strategy. Keep it simple and list only the characteristics that will help you do the work you are setting out to do. Once you have this one-page in place, start testing and analyzing the results to see what works.
There is no reward given to the marketing team that did precisely what they originally planned to do, down to the letter, nor is there one given to the team who took the most time planning. Plan, execute, analyze, repeat are the steps you should take when developing your Content Marketing efforts.
We hope this show will help you think outside the box when it comes to an upcoming marketing effort your team has.
