LookBook_logo_150Your Content Marketing Success Metrics Are All Wrong
Wednesday, August 30, 2017 | 2:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time | Free Webinar

Your job as a marketer is to educate buyers so they become qualified enough to buy. So why do you measure the success of your content based on pageviews, clicks, form fills, and downloads? There’s only one metric that matters: content consumption. The challenge marketers have today is that once someone clicks, we have no idea if they actually consumed the content. In short, our metrics and measurement are based largely on hope.

Get a preview of this Content Marketing World session and see how marketers are completely redefining success by adopting intelligent content delivery. Not only will you learn how intelligent content allows buyers to consume more content per session but provides greater intelligence into how they consume content and which assets are actually being consumed.

This session will cover the following:

  • The problem with traditional marketing metrics
  • The benefits of measuring content consumption and how it works
  • How intelligent content delivery provides buyers with more of the information they need and marketers with better insight into sales readiness and content performance

ON24_logo_17Audiences Or Buyers? Open Up Your View on Personas, Open Up Your Content Repertoire
Now Available On Demand | Free Webinar

What are you trying to do with your content program – sell buyers, or deliver value to audiences? If it’s the former, you’re limiting what you can do with content. It might work – but there’s a ceiling to what you can accomplish. If you want to make big leaps in your content creation strategy – consider moving to an audience strategy. What’s the difference? Let’s explore.

In this webinar, CMI’s Chief Content Adviser will take a page out of our Content Marketing Master Class and talk through the differences of developing buyer personas vs. audience personas. Once we do that, we’ll examine how this expanded view of our personas widens our opportunity to create content that differentiates our brand and delivers true value.

Our job as marketers is to make markets. Looking at our customers as audiences instead of merely buyers enables us to do exactly that.

In this webinar you will:

  • Learn the differences between audiences and buyers
  • Receive a framework for helping to develop audience personas
  • Understand the business case for the development of audiences over buyer personas
  • See real life examples of companies that have expanded their content program by delivering to audiences

If you’re struggling with your content marketing program – or constantly stuck in a cycle of talking about your product or service – this webinar can help you develop the knowledge and leverage to expand your creative thinking.
