“If you don’t know what to communicate, how do know you’ll succeed?” In the April 18th Aquent-sponsored AMA webcast “Embracing Brand-Driven Content Strategy”, presenter Margot Bloomstein (@mbloomstein), principal of Appropriate, Inc., immediately grabbed the attention of attendees with this thought-provoking question.

Margot went on to share invaluable information on what factors merge to build a comprehensive content strategy. One that’s cost-efficient, yields the greatest impact, and refines the “voice” a brand uses when speaking to a target audience.

“Content is more than just copy, its an entire lifecycle of information.” is another key take-away from Margot’s presentation, meaning your content must include other appropriate mediums of expression. It needs to be future-proof and scalable to social media and other forms of publication.

More of what Margot advises on content strategy in this “must see” webcast:

  • Content demands an owner with ownership

  • The content role is becoming a necessity in everyone’s job

  • A content strategy is the glue that holds brands together with cohesive messaging

  • Regular content audits are essential

  • Content dredges up politics

Margot also touched on a variety of important topics from social media not being free to Message Architecture. “Embracing Brand-Driven Content Strategy” is an invaluable resource for anyone who creates, manages, or works with content in any way.
