How To Champion Content Marketing In A B2B Organization

How To Champion Content Marketing In A B2B Organization | Content Creation, Curation, Management | Scoop.it
If you’re reading this, you’re probably already sold on the power of content marketing for B2B. However, just because you understand that content marketing is a reliable and affordable path to success, your boss or other decision maker may not be aware of its potential or may be resistant to changing their current course.

B2B organizations tend to be more entrenched and static when it comes to adopting new marketing techniques and this is especially true when these techniques are as radically different from the norm as content marketing.

Although this may be the case, the mounting evidence for content marketing’s effectiveness for B2B is iron-clad. If you don’t convince the higher ups in your organization to buy-in, no worthwhile initiative can get off the ground and you might get left behind as your competitors embrace content.

This article will provide you facts to back up your argument as well as strategies for how to approach the discussion and how to frame your request. After all, even the best B2B content marketing knowledge is worthless if you can’t get your organization to OK your efforts.

I’m often asked what concepts an entry-level professional in this field should know. Here are 20that I have shared. A list like this is easy to start but impossible to finish because it becomes outdated almost immediately and grows unreasonably long.

If you are looking for some great tools that will provide inspiration for learners to write stories check out this post by Richard Byrne. He provides ten tools that you may find useful.

The first section has two tools that help learners create collages, CanvaPicCollage (Android and iPad app), and  PicMonkey (browser based). He also suggests using ThingLink as a tool for learners to enhance their collage (and links to a tutorial).

The second section looks at "threading images into stories." Thematic allows you to upload images and display up to twenty in a story with one line of text for each image. Storehouse is a free iPad app that allows you to use images and video and arrange them with a line of text above or below the image or video clip. Adobe Slate is a free iPad app that also allows you to create stories and has more features than Storehouse.

The final section looks at creating picture books and suggest My Storybook (web based), Picture Book Maker (web based) and Little Story Creator (free iPad app).

Each of these tools is described in more detail in the post. As this school year draws to a close your class might enjoy using one of these tools to create a story about what they have learned this year.

Why Mobile Is Content Marketing's Missing Link

Why Mobile Is Content Marketing's Missing Link | Content Creation, Curation, Management | Scoop.it

It's crucial for content marketers to think about smartphones and tablets, as the average amount of video we watch on mobile devices is expected to jump by nine minutes this year.


Brands are investing in original content, but could they be overlooking the ideal channel for distributing it?


The solution to creating a branded content experience that delivers results could lie in a centralized mobile content marketing strategy. By integrating content channels and reaching all consumer touch points, brands can maintain open access to content assets, encourage ongoing engagement, and build affinity.


According to comScore, smartphones and tablets accounted for 60 percent of time spent with digital media last year. Apps represented the majority of digital media consumption activity - some seven out of every eight minutes - thus surpassing desktop usage and mobile web browsing. Consumers' existing reliance on apps for utility content creates a perfect opportunity to expand content offerings to further strengthens the customer-company bond.
