Heroes and Underdogs: How Content Marketing Levels the Playing Field (Additional Session)
NOTE: Both sessions of this roundtable are now SOLD OUT. To be put on a waiting list, please contact Marilee (303-607-9957).
Join us for our first breakfast roundtable of 2013, hosted and facilitated by Carla Johnson, Type A Communications, and sponsored by Encana Corporation.
Marketing has changed significantly in the last few years. As the number and ways we can connect with customers continues to expand, so does our ability to listen, get feedback and respond. But there’s a difference between just pumping out content because technology now makes it easier and having something valuable to say. Today’s effective marketer needs to understand the dynamics of content marketing and how it fits into marketing and sales system.
Content marketing is more than white papers, posts, tweets and YouTube videos. It requires a thoughtful approach and sustainable storyline that reflects the social nature of business today, and how to connect with customers in meaningful, relevant ways. During this interactive round table, attendees should be prepared for a lively discussion that covers:
- How content marketing is changing the dynamics of B2B marketing
- The importance of tying content marketing to business objectives
- Why you need to create content with context across marketing and sales channels
Continental breakfast will be provided.
