Crowdsourcing key to bootstrap content marketing

sarahtier1

It’s a common theme among communicators: do more with less. Add to that the need for organizations to adopt content marketing, and it can seem a daunting if not impossible task. But it can be done, as Sarah Ehrnschwender, the Director of Marketing at TiER1 Performance Solutions, shared during our October 12 seminar “The Content Entrepreneur.”

Sarah walked us through how she developed a successful and robust content marketing program with a staff of only 1 and a 1/2. She offered these tips for others who need to take a bootstrap approach to creating content:

  1. Brand your content marketing and create a statement of purpose for your editorial calendar to align your team (your one WHY for content marketing should drive the type of content you generate).
  2. Suggest content topics first based on what people are talking about/asking about in the field (what content can your organization generate to fill the gaps?).
  3. Use crowdsourcing techniques internally to get quality content that speaks to your organization’s content marketing strategy.

Watch for more events designed to help you keep your communications skills sharp. Upcoming topics include working with agencies, incorporating cultural awareness into your communications and special competition and celebration for our chapter’s 40th anniversary.
