How to Build and Leverage Great Content Online
Content is what drives the Web economy, and today’s online audience is hungrier than ever for content that serves a personal, economic, or professional purpose. That audience has a wide selection to choose from, and the challenge for a content provider is to earn the consumer’s attention in a way that will keep them coming back for more. Creating and marketing great content is both a scientific skill and an art. The qualities that organizations bring to this challenge determine the success they will have in reaching their target markets and inspiring them to take action.
Great content is spawned in environments where research mixes with human creativity, experience, talent and direct input from the eventual audience for the content. Join this webinar to be part of a conversation with experts about how these creative environments are constructed and leveraged by successful organizations, discussing:
- How ideas for killer content come about
- The role of the online audience in creating the content it consumes
- Metrics that prove the effectiveness of content
- Trends leading the style and medium of effective content
