trackmaven-logoIs Content Marketing Collapsing Under its Own Weight?
Wednesday, December 10, 2014 | 2 PM ET/11 AM PT | Free Webinar

Marketers are in the midst of a content marketing arms race. More content is being created every day, and a myriad of technology options make it easier than ever to efficiently distribute that content to broad audiences.

But as it becomes easier to distribute content, more of that content is failing. According to new research from TrackMaven, a growing majority of professional marketing content fails to have an impact. In other words, marketers have become very good at distributing content, but not very good at creating content that is worth distributing.

In this webinar, Andrew Davis and Ian Walsh will outline and debate how we got to today’s tipping point for content marketing.They will also present data and case studies showing marketers how to get their content strategy back on line – starting at the content creation stage.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Understand just how saturated the content market has become (and why)
  • Learn how to use leading metrics to accurately predict the impact of content before it goes into market
  • See case studies of content marketing strategies that cut through the noise to reach and engage buyers

dmcs_logo_blackCreating a Content Strategy with Data at the Core
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | 2 PM ET/11 AM PT | Free Webinar

Content marketing has revolutionized the way brands speak to and engage their audiences. Done right, it can move the most active prospects and customers through every stage of their purchase lifecycle. But done blindly, without the insights to fuel a deep understanding of your audience, their objectives, and their behaviors, your content is doomed to fail.

Who are your ‘intenders’? Which topics are they most interested in? How do they discover this content, and on which devices? Which formats empower your audience to take action?

Join Demand Media and CMI to learn everything you need to know about designing, implementing and optimizing a smart content strategy with data at the core.

act-on logoHow to Use Facebook Ads to Target the Right People with the Right Message at the Right Time — and CONVERT!
On Demand | Free Webinar

You see others benefitting from Facebook, but it just doesn’t lead to a positive ROI for your business. Regardless of what many will tell you, there is no easy button with Facebook — you aren’t guaranteed success by posting a certain way at a certain time and using a certain template. How you achieve success will be unique to your business. That said, there are several tools that the pros use, but you aren’t. The secrets to your success on Facebook are found within these tools.

During this session, we’ll discuss how to do the following with Facebook:

  • Learn more about your audience and the audiences of your competitors
  • Attract an audience that converts
  • Drive quality traffic to your website
  • Build an email list targeting the people most likely to convert
  • Selling your product targeting the people most likely to buy

icc_email_logoContent Marketing Meets Intelligent Content: The Making of “The Language of Content Strategy”
On Demand | Free Webinar

Time is in short supply. Deadlines are tight. Resources, even tighter. If you’re like most content professionals, you’ve got dozens of great ideas, but not enough time, money, and experience to bring them to life. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

In this content marketing meets intelligent content engineering case study, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, will explain how he (and content strategy expert Rahel Anne Bailie) created the book, “The Language of Content Strategy” (XML Press) with the help of the crowd, structured XML content, a wiki, and a formal content strategy.

Attend this session to learn how two seasoned content strategists enlisted the help of 50 knowledgeable experts to create a printed book, an eBook, a companion website, and educational flash cards—in record time—all from a single source of intelligent content.


  • Discover why it’s imperative that content marketing professionals—regardless of their area of specialty—understand and leverage the power of advanced information development practices.
  • Leave knowing why a repeatable content production system, optimized for productivity, and designed to efficiently produce multiple content products simultaneously, is no longer an option, but rather, a necessity.

act-onReal-time Marketing Strategies: Do’s and Don’ts
On Demand | Free Webinar

According to a variety of latest studies, using real-time marketing (RTM) strategies increases customer’s interest and positivity about your brand, grows the number of recommendations, and heightens purchase consideration. RTM seems like a new phenomenon. The reality, however, is that it is nothing new. It is a way of thinking that goes to the heart of your brand’s values and creates human and meaningful conversation with consumers. RTM is about raising awareness, creating demand, and furthering the brand’s mission through connecting with right customers, in the right place, at the right time, through relevant content.

What is different are the channels marketers are using to connect with customer, as well as customers’ expectations of immediacy of response. What is different is the amount of digital noise that is increasing every year. To stand out from that noise, marketers need to be responsive, flexible, and creative like never before. In this webinar, Ekaterina Walter will present the data, the examples, and do’s and don’ts of real-time marketing.

Copies of Ekaterina’s new book “The Power of Visual Storytelling: How to Use Visuals, Videos, and Social Media to Market Your Brand” will be given away to 5 random webinar attendees!
