If you’re like most organizations today, you’ve invested in content for marketing, sales, support, product strategy, and a host of other reasons. You’ve developed ways to more efficiently and effectively create, manage, and deliver content. Despite these significant investments, you—and your stakeholders—are likely still asking the question, “Does our content work?”
While that sounds like a simple question, getting answers can be challenging, to say the least. But, it doesn’t have to be. Not if you start with a strategy and the right tools for the job.
Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, content scientist Colleen Jones, for a presentation about measuring content performance. Jones (and her crew at Content Science) have spent the last few years working with large, global brands to identify what makes content effective—and how to measure it. The result is ContentWrx—a robust performance measurement tool designed to help your organization make content decisions that improve or accelerate return on investment.
Attend this free, one-hour webinar, and you'll learn how to track the six dimensions of content effectiveness and make informed business decisions based on data. You’ll discover the four elements of the ContentWrx system, and you’ll find out how easy it can be to collect, analyze and act upon behavioral and perception data. You’ll also learn how ContentWrx can help you close the gap between your data and user feedback.
As a bonus, Jones will share the top 3 insights from an analysis of data from more than 100,000 content users.

Performance analytics have become increasingly advanced with traditional means of tracking the effectiveness and efficiency of the recruitment function giving way to far more sophisticated methods. Questions around how we measure RPO success and what we use to do so are more pertinent now than ever.
To find out what companies really think about RPO metrics and how they could be improved in the future, Futurestep partnered with HRO Today Magazine to undertake a primary market research study among users of recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) services. We focused our investigation on three key areas:
- What Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are being used in the RPO space?
- How satisfied are users with those metrics?
- What metrics do users want that they don’t currently have?
Please join us as we review the findings of Measuring Up?, our research report about RPO metrics, and discuss the relationship between successful recruitment metrics and successful RPOs.

2017 is shaping up to be the year in which RegTech catches up with FinTech and the sector is brimming with innovative ideas that can help regulated firms address regulatory requirements in an efficient and cost effective way.
But how good is this technology, really? Can everything that is promised be delivered? At it’s best, RegTech can help firms to price and quantify the risks around a firm having a poor culture, and technology can solve problems of capturing qualitative concepts, such as behaviour and culture, and embedding these in to a firm's operational/conduct risk model.
In this discussion, Jane Walshe of Enforcd is joined by other RegTech pioneers to discuss what RegTech can do, and also possible pitfalls to be avoided in its use.
Return on investment (ROI) is a mathematical equation. Determining the value of investments in content can be a tricky proposition. If you can't place a value on your content, you can't do the math.
Determining ROI not only requires we understand the value of our content—and what it costs to create, manage, and deliver—but it also requires consistency. To make the calculation meaningful, you'll need to ensure you're comparing apples to apples and oranges to oranges.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, James Goldman, Content Strategy Program Lead at Equinix, for this free one-hour webinar. James will examine the need for normalizing measurements, making sense of key performance indicators, and communicating the value of digital content production improvements in ways that are meaningful to management.
The latest advances in online tracking give b2b marketers access to a wealth of data that can be used to analyse the success of marketing communications campaigns. Yet in reality it is often a case of information overload, and in many cases the ready availability of digital analytics has resulted in higher expectations at board level when it comes to justifying spend on PR and other offline marketing tactics.
In this new webinar, Jenny discusses how b2b marketers should measure success on an ongoing basis as part of a culture of continuous improvement. She first looks at the theory behind evaluation and progress in the global PR industry since the Barcelona Principles were published back in 2010. She then gives practical examples as to how time-poor b2b marketers can start to implement best practice evaluation within an organisation, with a particular focus on measuring the success of integrated campaigns.
