Re-Thinking Your Content Assembly Line
Now Available On Demand | Free Webinar

Content marketing has conquered B2B. Most companies now have well-grooved processes for producing content within predictable schedules and budgets.

But most of these processes are essentially assembly lines, moving the content from silo to silo, with fairly blind handovers in-between (from researcher to planner to writer to designer, etc.).

But great content can’t be made the same way we make toaster ovens.
It’s unique. Crafted. Specific to its audience, market and strategic context.

In this talk, we’ll look at the problems with the assembly line approach to content creation and consider an alternative that’s far more collaborative and creative (and also leads to way better content).

You will learn:

  • Why assembly lines are the default setting for most content teams
  • How they limit creativity and close down options too soon
  • How to break down the silos and get your team really working together
  • The kinds of content that just can’t come from an assembly line

Our Guests:

  • Doug Kessler, Co-Founder and Creative Director, Velocity Partners (@dougkessler)
  • Stephanie Stahl, General Manager, Content Marketing Institute (@EditorStahl)
