Content Marketing Committee (ANA & Gold Associate Members)


Description & Purpose

As a cornerstone in Brand Activation, Content Marketing encompasses the strategic use of content, regardless of source or placement, which helps to advance the strategic initiatives and the brand or product and helps to drive the engagement of the target audience.  Discussions will focus on strategic content marketing best practices that engage, entertain and are relevant to core audiences while delivering on desired key performance indicators.
