Fast-Forward Your Content Marketing 301 (Half Day)

3 Ways to Elevate Your Content Marketing above Competitors
(Half Day Workshop)

You’ve done the basics to create your content marketing program – with a written mission, strategy, message, research, competitive awareness, and metrics. Now learn 3 ways to optimize your content marketing.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to measure and improve your content, build a content base, and create highly differentiated content that competitors can’t copy.

Optimize your content marketing as you learn how to:

  • Measure and optimize existing content. How can you get more performance from existing content? Squeeze the maximum value from existing content with newsjacking, resizing and refreshing. Fine-tune content to make it more scannable, readable and emotional.
  • Build your content base. How can you elevate your content above competitors? Most marketers create multiple content assets, yet lack a solid content marketing base. Learn how to create one major content asset that buyers can’t resist. Building a solid content marketing base makes your brand tower above others in the competitive content landscape.
  • Differentiate with a content hook. How can you make content so differentiated that competitors can’t copy it? In most markets, the content landscape is overcrowded with content from many companies, yet no one’s content really stands out. Define the content landscape, find open spaces that are opportunities for differentiation, and create a unique hook for your brand’s content.

This workshop is part of the ANA’s Content Marketing Mastery Program. Our Mastery Programs are designed to be flexible and fit your time and budget. These programs can be delivered over two full days or as a series of independent half-days.
