Demystifying Content

Marketing, advertising and publishing executives need to understand that all media should to be treated as social media, first, before we can be creative and effective with content. With this understanding in place, Craig Davis will dive into the three pillar points to demystifying content.He will discuss how:
– content is at the backbone of interactivity
– content created and distributed correctly will get socialised but that’s just one factor to success
– and how having an understanding of the communication behaviors will affect the content you create, distribute and evolve.

Tailoring Content to Gain Marketshare: A Case StudyWith the advent of new content distribution models, media agencies, publishers and most of all brands are becoming even more marketing and advertising savy by using content to differentiate themselves.

Justin Lam, Group Brand Manager of Cerebos Foods is one of those executives who’s taken a new approach to marketing through content. His challenge was to launch a number of new products, Asian Home Gourmet meals, into a pretty static category that focused only on differentiating themselves through product authenticity and ingredients. Immediately, Justin saw a gap to take his products further, focusing on the journey his products captured.

By developing a compelling story, Justin decided not to focus on the obvious product benefits but instead focused on engaging his consumers emotionally with Asian culture and cuisines. Justin started at a high level to demystify the category by partnering with LonelyPlanet to create and deliver tailored content. It was this content that educated consumers about Asian cultures and cuisines and then linked these emotional insights to the product and brand. With his agencies and LonelyPlanets as his trusted content provider and distributor, Asian Home Gourmet was able to generate interest, link the brand to a trusted source, and eventually extend this partnership into a larger social media campaign for engagement.

Join Justin as he walks you through how he and his agencies took a new approach to marketing and advertising by focusing on content.
