Lessons from the Intelligent Content Conference

DonDraper_Dead_MichaelWeiss

Mad Men, content as gold (or currency) and the interactive realities now coming to life via e-books, social reader apps and mobile devices were hot topics at the Intelligent Content Conference held earlier this month in San Francisco.

The 5th annual event focuses on advanced information creation, management and delivery strategies and had a number of great sessions for anyone who deals with content—not just creators but information architects and strategists, too.

According to the 2013 B2B Content Marketing Benchmarks, Budgets and Trends report from the Content Marketing Institute and Marketing Profs, the #1 challenge content marketers face is producing enough content.

In my line of work, I focus on daily challenges faced by curators and creators who are trying to bulk up their owned media. The insights here are weighted heavily toward that audience. But there have been tremendous shifts in publishing. Every company is getting into the game and the need for intelligent content is now critical. This conference taught me a lot and is a great resource for any content creator who wants their content to be viable in the future.

True, a blog is an extension of your site (in some cases, a blog is the entire site). So you need to apply SEO best practices to your blog as a foundation. But blogging is also a social activity rooted in publishing.

Yes, blogging is part of your company’s social activities. It’s the content that’s fed through the social sphere. Without content, social media would not exist. It’s that stuff people share and connect through. And your blog needs to become a part of that.

So today, I’m going to share with you some small tweaks you can make to your blogging activity that will help strengthen the relationship between your community and the social networks.
