Contently – Why I’m Placing the Biggest Bet of My Life on Content

As someone who values execution excellence above all else though, one thing has always pained me: the incredible level of content chaos inside enterprise organizations.

Content is a more complicated challenge than anyone realizes. It’s one thing to create a great Instagram video, one solid sales deck, or a single one-sheet. It’s an entirely other thing to create consistent, high-quality content that ladders up to business goals across all of your channels, lines of business, and geographies. Very few brands have figured it out—a big reason that the top 5 percent of branded content drives 90 percent of all engagement.

Your company probably has a social media presence. But if you’re not incorporating social media into your customer marketing strategy, you could be missing out.

After all, you’ve spent valuable time and money building your customer base, and you’ve also worked to amass a growing community of followers on your social media channels. But have you integrated those efforts in an effort to expand your customer base, keep current customers engaged, and increase profits?

Artificial intelligence (AI) may not take down the human race like it does in the movies, but it is primed to change the world as we know it. The true impact of AI has yet to be felt, but it’s no longer just movie magic… it’s reality.

There are real implications and benefits to its use, and marketing will be one of the many disciplines affected the most: 47% of companies agree that those who don’t invest in AI are at risk of being pushed out by competitors, according to Forbes Insights.

For Marketing, this evolving technology will open doors for automating processes and delivering more personalized experiences across platforms—including ones we haven’t even dreamed of yet.

Fully 60% of enterprise marketers said they plan to use AI in their content marketing this year, and 32% said marketing technologies must integrate AI into their workflow, according to a recent report from martech company BrightEdge. They voiced that AI would help them gain a better understanding of their customers, increase productivity and save time, and create better performing content.
