According to a recent report by the Custom Content Council and Contentwise, marketers are spending $44 billion a year on content marketing. Content marketing has become the great equalizer, since both small and large brands can compete through great storytelling that communicates their brand or corporate ethos. Yet the challenge remains on how to successfully produce original content that engages, entertains and is relevant to core audiences while delivering on brand metrics.

Join us for a fun and informative day, hosted by Walmart Stores, Inc. at the 21c Museum Hotel and hear about success stories in content marketing. This complimentary members only conference will showcase leading marketers representing a diverse array of industries discussing their strategies behind the development of custom content, the execution of production through different media channels and the measurement of key objectives.

THE HOSTESS STORY

After liquidating in late 2012, Hostess was left for dead. Five months later, new ownership wanted to resurrect the iconic maker of Twinkies. But this nostalgic brand, popular only among older moms, needed to reach a younger audience to survive. So it made a play in major markets to generate buzz, and leveraged content marketing and social media to turn that buzz into national awareness.  When stores sold out of product within 48 hours of launch, it wasn't just a comeback. It was the sweetest comeback in the history of ever.

THE 2020 CONTENT MARKETING IMPERATIVE: BEYOND THE BUZZWORDS AND INTO REALITY

Content marketing is all the rage, but is it just a trendy fashion or another word for good advertising?  And, how do you balance different content strategies for different types of brands, or measure real results – like more inquiries, more satisfied constituents - or decreased costs.   The next five years will see a strategic inflection for marketing and advertising - and content will be at the core.  This session will talk through the business case, the process, the tactics and real-life examples of how real brands are using content to drive real marketing results.
