Meeting Topic:  

An Agile Approach to Content Planning

Meeting Description:

In recent years, it seems that one can’t read a trade publication, regardless of the vertical market, without hearing about the explosion and effectiveness of content marketing. More than 90% of marketers cite it as a key strategy in their mix.  Content marketing has become a de facto business critical activity.  Simply put, we need content; effective, in demand content.

Thus the real questions become:

How to do it?
How to do it well?
How to get it done on time and within budget?

 According to John Alexander, Managing Partner of AJi, the power is in planning. At this highly interactive event, John will share how marketing teams he has led have employed sophisticated and agile techniques to deploy content that works.

 He’ll share keys to the process:

  How to estimate the size of content needed
What information to gather and when
How to plan, review and complete content elements

Don’t miss this great opportunity to get a better understanding of best practices and future trends in this important area. You’ll come away with a “starter plan” to better manage content development. This is a great session that will give you insights no matter what role you have in the marketing cycle.
