September 13, 9:00am - 9:45am: Return On Audience: Rebooting Content & Customer Experience In A Post-Digital World

We’ve all seen the recent headlines: Content Marketing isn’t for everyone. Businesses Struggle with Digital Content. Content Marketing is more expensive or takes too long.  Well, the truth is – those headlines are mostly true. But they don’t have to be. Content can be a transformative business strategy, or simply the rut into which we drive to mediocrity.  Let’s reboot the whole notion of owned media, reset and peel back the covers of what’s actually going on with successful content marketing approaches in today’s digital enterprise. Let’s take a hard look at the actual business strategy of content and how we might fix content marketing and get to real, demonstrable, and profitable value to our business.
