trackmaven-logoHow to Turn Little Bets into Content Marketing Success
Wednesday, May 25, 2016 | 2:00 PM EST/11:00 AM PST | Free Webinar

Brands know how to distribute content. But few know how to create content worth distributing. Marketers need a “success algorithm” to know when and where to put the right messaging in play. Analytics can provide these answers, but making sense of marketing data is often a bottleneck. To win, marketers need faster ways to turn insights into action.

Join this session with Allen Gannett, CEO of TrackMaven, and Andrew Spoeth, Director of Digital Marketing at CA Technologies, to learn how to:

  • Turn “little bets” into big content wins
  • Grease the feedback loop between content and SEO
  • Make big-picture sense of content marketing metrics
  • Scale a data-informed marketing organization
  • Calculate the ROI of your content program

Our Guests:

Increasingly, marketers are realizing that one-size-fits-all content just doesn’t cut it anymore.

Now On Demand | Free Webinar

Billions of dollars will be spent on content creation in 2016; in comparison, one study reports 70% of marketers plan on spending around $1000 USD per month on content distribution. Why spend so much money making something then not ensuring it gets delivered?

Similarly, companies look to distribute content about their products, brands, culture etc., in a way that best cuts through a very noisy ecosystem. How do they get higher ROI on their content investment?

workfront-logoHow to Successfully Document Your Content Marketing Workflow
Now On Demand | Free Webinar

Research conducted by CMI consistently shows that content marketers who document their content marketing strategy are more effective in nearly all areas of content marketing. But even with a documented strategy, content marketers often still lack a defined workflow structure; they may have direction, and enjoy more success than other teams, but chaos in their work processes keep them from achieving their potential.

Content marketing teams are especially prone to workflow frustrations—simple approval processes can take weeks; management’s priorities are a moving target; budget issues delay deliverables; spreadsheets, meetings, and email threads create information silos between content teams … and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Now On Demand | Free Webinar

Research shows that over 65% of today’s buyer’s journey happens online. So providing a consistent and exceptional digital experience across all customer touch points is essential. To provide such an experience your content must speak the same language as your buyers.

Speaking literally, your content must also be available in the buyer’s native language to succeed in international markets. Introducing multiple languages into the marketing plan adds a level of complexity that most marketing departments are simply not prepared to handle.

Good content marketing demands skill and creativity.

Content must also be top-quality and useful to the intended audience in order to perform well.

Create Binge-Worthy Video Content in 8 Simple Stepson24 logo
Now On Demand | Free Webinar

Video content has universal appeal. It’s an immersive, persuasive, and emotionally resonant format that consumers — particularly digital natives — have come to rely on when looking to make a purchase. In fact, according to a Google Think report, 70 percent of B2B buyers have engaged with video in their B2B buying cycle, and 1 of every 5 B2B buyers watches over 1 hour of video as part of their buying process.

With the growing trends of “binge-watching” and mobile video consumption, video holds great potential for engaging target audiences at the precise times and places where they will be most receptive to acting on your message. Yet, many marketers think video content success is beyond their reach, believing that it will be prohibitively expensive and complicated to produce, and challenging to deliver in a way that stands out.
