Location: Sprint Accelerator (Crossroads District)
Topic: The Recipe for Content Awesomesauce
Speaker: Brody Dorland, Co-Founder of DivvyHQ
If you were to walk into the kitchen of a popular restaurant, you’d meet a head chef who has carefully crafted a menu that customers will love. You’d see a myriad of cooks at their designated stations, executing their role in crafting each dish. You’d see a kitchen manager that ensures the food is served hot, and the kitchen doesn’t run out of necessary ingredients. And lastly, you’d see that each cook is using a set of tools (utensils, knives, pots, pans, ovens, stoves, etc.) that ensures efficiency and high-quality output. Yummy.
While it may sound like a stretch to correlate the inner workings of a restaurant to that of a marketing team, the parallels are closer than you might think. All too often, marketers are cooking up content without paying attention to what their customers are hungry for. They’re not planning for the long haul, and running out of fresh ideas before their content channels have had a chance to produce results. Poor planning and inefficient production processes are resulting in missed deadlines, or low-quality content that gets pushed out the door. And marketing teams are making the process harder by using the wrong tools throughout the content process.
During this tasty presentation, we will dig into the 10 ingredients that make up the perfect recipe for content success. Cooking up a batch of content awesomesauce doesn’t happen overnight, so let us help you prepare by covering some of these vital topics, including:
- Why are we feeding our content beast in the first place? – Crafting Your Content Mission
- For whom are we cooking? – Identifying Your Target Audience
- Are we going to run out of food? – Choosing a Content Topic that You Can Sustain
- Do we have enough skilled cooks in the kitchen? – Building a dedicated team, process and workflow
- Do we have the right tools to maintain efficiency and quality? – Choosing Your Content Tools
- And more!
