Primary objective in this exercise is to define an audience-centric content strategy. Understanding the relationship between themes that are advertorial, industry informational and highly relevant to your targeted audience’s interests will help you stay focused.

Wow Marty...your own post is perfect! Our shop is professional/organizational learning within the University of Michigan. We have our own website, catalog and very few social media sites. Actually, we have never even used Google keywords/AdWords on our site. I'm thinking this is a definite no-no. Some of us feel it is not necessary since our customers are internal. What is your take on it?

Robin, first thanks for all the RT love today you ROCK. Now lets talk PPC. Can PPC play an important role inside of the Uof M? Maybe. If you have specific goals around list creation or have something to sell in a fairly immediate way PPC can provide an important dimension to the rest of the relationship building you do. Not sure how or what content you are monetizing, but I could see a "free UofM" study or white paper that would get my email into your list. Once there you could nurture those on your list with segmented drip campaigns. Clearly tagging those from PPC will give you the ability to judge ROI. Feel free to email your specific use case to me Martin.Smith(at) and I will spend some time thinking about IF or HOW PPC might help. Least I can do for your sharing my content with your great tribe of followers :). Marty

How Tos of An Enterprise Content Marketing Strategy
This article is a little on the dry side for my taste. Dry doesn't mean it is inaccurate. As content marketing becomes an enterpise idea we are seeing a trend of posts about how to control it, how to scheudle greatness. 

Good luck with that. I agree with the concept of thinking strategically about content marketing even as I know the best way to make it pay is to do it, to love sharing your most important and intimate truths.

Sure there is a role for caution and careful planning, but make sure you don't squeeze out the juice you try to drink. Leave some room for "magic happens here" and adopt some of these ideas. Remember you get better at anything BY DOING IT and you become great only when you risk real things, things that can be LOST and can hurt in their losing.
