Hot gossip: The fall of the web's most glamorous blogger -                    Media, News - The Independent | Language, Content & Communication | Scoop.it
Back in 2006, when I was 24, my life was cosy and safe. I had just been promoted to associate editor at the publishing house where I'd been working since I graduated from college, and I was living with my boyfriend, Henry, and two cats in a grubby but spacious two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn. I spent most of my free time sitting with Henry in our cheery yellow living room on our stained Ikea couch, watching TV. And almost every day I updated my year-old blog, Emily Magazine, to let a few hundred people know what I was reading and watching and thinking about.

Conversation Agent: Why You Need a New Approach to Content

Conversation Agent: Why You Need a New Approach to Content | Language, Content & Communication | Scoop.it
“The problem is getting the right content to the right people, even while knowing that key decision-makers are not an easy audience to reach. Producing smart, highly targeted and truly innovative content can be really challenging.” This is one of the quotes from the B2B content marketing report published by MarketingProfs and Junta42 last September. The problem is trying to do all those things at once, while outrunning the competition and potentially outnumbing the same target audience. And indeed I have issues with the terms "target" and "audience". Why is it a problem? Because, as admitted by marketers and communicators, organizations are still learning to shift their mindset from broadcasting about products -- putting a different spin on stories is still part of that -- and products that don't feel exciting enough. Still from the report, most marketers (36% of those surveyed) also feel that content creation is just the beginning. How they socialize that content to engage customers and prospects takes an even greater slice of their resources. And a big percentage (21%) feel they are not producing enough content. Compared to whom? This is certainly no ding on the report, however since the control is marketers who feel they do a good job you should take a moment to unpack what the findings translate into for you and your organization. Here's what the report found: Self-described effective content marketers outpace the remaining survey respondents in “adoption” within every single category of content marketing. On average, effective marketers use... (Why you need a new approach to content marketing http://ow.ly/3GFMl via @conversationage)
