Secrets of the Content Marketing Superstars

Ryan Skinner, Account Director, Velocity Partners
[This webinar is intended specifically for larger client-side B2B marketers. Others may find it useful too, but consider this a health warning.]

Here at Velocity Partners we’ve worked with a few content marketing superstars, and studied many more. These leaders share a few major characteristics, among them:

They’re bold, which attracts A players inside and outside their company

They cordon off resources for their needs, or go rogue (self-financed side projects)

They focus on both the rational and emotional elements in content and marketing

They mix it up online themselves, in communities, forums and social networks

They move fast and break things – because they have a vision they want to realize

They attach themselves to talent, and develop together

This webinar will be rich in examples and insights from the working scenario of many a leading content marketer. And I’ll guarantee that in the course of the short 25-minute program, you’ll learn something you’d never heard before.

I work at London’s Velocity Partners, the “B2B marketing agency to the stars.” We’re one of the driving forces behind content marketing efforts at companies you’ve heard of, such as Salesforce, Ciena, Expedia’s B2B outfit, Cisco, Marketo and App-DNA, and others you’ll hear from when they sell for a big multiple.

For anyone interested in continuing the discussion post-webinar, I’ll be available on twitter @rskin11, skype at redwood.skinner or email: ryan(at)velocitypartners.co.uk.

  • The lure of data-led tactics for web re-targeting and advanced customer experience applications is intoxicating for marketers, particularly when customers demand relevance and reward personalization with increased frequency and volume of purchase. But while this age of data-led marketing has opened up a world of possibility for engagement, personalization and real-time, one-to-one experiences, it has also prompted customers to grab indelible paint to draw the “creepy line”—that point at which knowing the customer turns from creating a relevant experience to exhibiting stalker-like behavior. The magic for marketers is not just understanding their customers, but understanding where that line in experience has been drawn…and knowing that while there are universal truths to engagement, the repercussions of crossing the creepy line can be detrimental to a customer’s desire to engage with a brand.

    To address where and how marketers must engage and interact in a customer-defined scope of individualization and personalization, the CMO Council, in partnership with Teradata, will host a one-hour webcast to kick off the discussion around just how close we can and should get to the creepy line. Joining the conversation will be brand leaders who have made strides in driving relevant experiences that add value to the customer’s journey, in addition to customer intelligence experts to share key trends, mandates and best practices in moving beyond mass personalization to achieve true individualization.
  • Real-time marketing meets real-time research: Understanding Consumers' Digital Media Addiction

    The goal for marketers is to present the right advertising message to the right person at the right time - no matter whether a person is surfing social media, watching television, checking their mobile phone or walking into a store. This becomes more and more difficult as media consumption is ever-changing. Furthermore, while we need to keep different communication methods in mind and optimise our messaging for the medium, we should also approach consumers holistically, understanding that they are who they are on mobile devices, in their cars listening to the radio, or while watching television.

    In addition to dissecting the typical consumer and their media consumption, we’ll discuss how this new world order requires complete cohesion between brands, their advertising and media agencies - all the while supported by smart, real-time market research. This presentation will focus on the consumers' role in that ecosystem and their ability to recognise and internalise the messages they are sent.
  • In his recently published white paper, Pete Jenkins, Chair at Gamfed, examined the science behind driving engagement, and how marketers can leverage gamification, insight, proximity marketing and social media to generate exceptional engagement and influence behaviour.

    But how do marketers go about implementing these techniques?

    Pete has condensed gamified marketing down to just 6 critical strategies, and in this webinar he will present the 6 C’s of gamified marketing and how to apply them to gain the highest levels of customer engagement. He will take you through case studies where these ideas have been used successfully, and you’ll take away a practical framework to apply to your own marketing activities.

  • The ubiquity of mobile has ushered in new opportunities for marketers, such as targeting mobile consumers geographically and offering tools to be used when they’re in-store. But perhaps the greatest potential is in mobile's revival of the value of a phone call, and the phone call's ability to attribute online to offline activity. As mobile offers consumers the opportunity to take immediate action by placing a call, marketers begin to connect campaigns to calls and, ultimately, purchases.

    In this “After the Click” webinar, Grow.co's Jay Weintraub and CJ Arseneau from Telmetrics will provide insights, case studies and strategies into creating digital campaigns that drive action, leveraging call analytics and attribution technologies in the path to purchase.
  • The rise of mobile and the multi-screen world puts the consumer firmly at the centre of the digital universe. Content needs to be more personal and more relevant as consumers come to regard traditional advertising and marketing tactics as intrusive and ineffective. Marketers now have to ask themselves some crucial questions:

    • Is my content successfully driving more traffic?
    • Are those visitors actually engaging with my content?
    • Which traffic sources provide the most engaged and highest-converting customers?
    • Which of my content is driving positive ROI?
    • How can I improve my content to meet sales or conversion targets?
    • How can I accurately measure which content is most effective and evaluate why some content performs better than others?

    In this webinar, Duncan Clark will explain how you can tackle these questions to ensure your content marketing pulls its weight and delivers against business objectives.
  • A short video showing the new 3radial powered DBS Lifestyle Mobile App which uses gamification to drive engagement with consumers.
  • Learn how marketers can harness two of the biggest digital trends to optimise content strategy as content marketing comes of age.

    Duncan Clark, Head of Global Research at Netbiscuits, discusses how two mega-trends are creating a wealth of opportunity for marketers to optimise their content.

    Firstly Big Data - the focus on gathering data and insight has brought the importance of understanding customer experience to the forefront.

    Secondly, the phenomenal rise of mobile has completely changed the way in which consumers interact with brands and reshaped their expectations.

    In 2015, these two unstoppable trends will converge to redefine key areas of marketing strategy. Analytics, when applied to key business objectives, empowers marketers to make the right decisions about customer experience and content optimisation. Mobile, meanwhile, enables brands to be more closely and personally engaged with customers than ever before.

    In this webinar, we explore the challenges and opportunities emerging in this new multi-screen world.
  • Consumers are constantly bombarded across multiple channels with branded messages, so how can the gamification of the mobile customer experience help brands to increase engagement, loyalty and improve customer value when most consumers have already tuned out? The Economist Intelligence Unit showed that companies share a conviction that cultivating a high level of customer engagement is now a key strategic challenge.

    This panel discussion explores whether Gamification, as an engagement technique, can help Marketers to secure consumer mind share, giving their brands a competitive advantage, or is it just a passing gimmick that won’t deliver against this strategic goal?

    A B2B marketer’s life is often focused on creating killer campaigns, generating leads and developing content to fill the top of the sales funnel.
