When it comes to content, your impeccably crafted brand guidelines aren’t good enough anymore | Intelligent Communications | Scoop.it
... While there may indeed be a ‘torrent’ or ‘flood’ or ‘wave’ of rubbish content swamping our digital lives, to be honest a lot of the stuff I come across is pretty good. By which I mean that it’s simply useful, informative or entertaining. From both B2B and B2C brands. Yes, advertorials can be a bit dull but there is an equally large wave of excellent content being produced by brands. So why are so many brands still so nervous about it? One of the biggest problems is a lack of confidence. Not a lack of confidence about content marketing, that much is obvious, but a lack of confidence in who they are, what their brand stands for, what their place in the world is and their view on it....

Data Geek or Storyteller? Today’s CMO Must Excel at Both | Convince and Convert

Data Geek or Storyteller? Today’s CMO Must Excel at Both | Convince and Convert | Intelligent Communications | Scoop.it
No one can deny that data is enlightening. Its signals tell us who our audiences are, where to find them, and how they’re influenced. But does it trump storytelling? Today's CMO requires a healthy mix of analytics experience and creativity to be successful. Digest... Let’s be honest: The storyteller has taken a beating over the past five or so years thanks to the rise of programmatic marketing in particular, but also in no small part to the cornucopia of marketing automation technologies that let marketers measure everything. Tesla is an example of how the pendulum is swinging back. The company’s mission is to reduce the consumer’s carbon footprint and eliminate dependency on fossil fuels. Though highly driven by its mission, one rarely hears the company talk about it. Instead, focus is on creating the best driving experience that also happens to be good for the environment. Today’s successful CMOs are data-geeky storytellers. __________________ ► Receive a FREE daily summary of The Marketing Technology Alert directly to your inbox.
