Experts sharing on how to be the brand that entertains & inspires consumers to engage actively
Singapore, Mar 17, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Customers are now smarter, better informed, connected and more socially influenced. Delivering content that intrigues, connects and engages is becoming increasingly crucial to marketers in today's cluttered landscape. It humanises the brand and builds a strong connection between the organisation and its target audience.
Mr Zaheer Nooruddin, APAC Regional Vice President - Digital, Mobile, Social & Research, Waggener Edstrom, stresses that "content marketing calls for brands to develop and share high quality, relevant, and inspiring content with their audiences." He further adds that "[good] content encourages desired consumer behaviour, such as the generation of leads, demand, loyalty and advocacy."
However, one of the common struggles faced by practitioners like Mr Simon Torring, Head of Content, Luxola, is "prioritising content quality over quantity and looking at the right metrics." In fact, content marketing is not a new practice. "It is easy to plan out word counts, post schedules and content calendars, but this does not necessarily make your content interesting, helpful and compelling to your target audience," commented Mr Simon Torring.
To overcome this challenge, organisations need to connect with their target audience, talk with them to understand them deeper. One way to forge stronger relationships and deliver higher relevance is co-creation. Mr Zaheer Nooruddin agrees that "when brands manage to get their audiences to co-create content as part of a digital marketing campaign, the success of that campaign increases exponentially. [Co-creation] helps [brands] earn trust." Albeit time-consuming, Mr Zaheer Nooruddin exclaims that "when [co-creation] happens, it's worth the effort!"
