Getting Started with Digital Content Strategy


“I hate the word “content,” which has infiltrated our profession. You have people who are called chief content officers and things like that. I don’t like the word content. To me, it’s like saying the word “stuff.” It has no meaning, whereas journalism actually does have meaning.” Marty Baron, editor in chief of the Washington Post in Newsonomics
“Content” is all the rage in digital marketing and has been ever... Plus

Is Your Content Where it Needs to Be?

Personalization continues to be a top priority for businesses large and small. Customized experiences are now the expectation. While many marketing tools exist to help automate and deliver personalized digital experiences, what is truly driving the effort and satisfying customers is content. Content is the key to personalization. It is what makes the customer experience unique, it provides value to your audience, and it showcases that you know and understand what matters to your customers. Content makes your audience feel...

Loosen Control the Open Source Way

A couple of weeks ago a Chief Digital Officer (CDO) of one of the largest mobile telecommunications companies in the world asked me how a large organization such as hers should think about organizing itself to maintain control over costs and risks while still giving their global organization the freedom to innovate.
When it comes to managing their websites and the digital customer experience, they have over 50 different platforms managed by local teams in over 50 countries around the world. Her goal is to improve operational efficiency, improve brand consistency, and set governance by... Plus

The site lets people easily access state government news and services, including real-time public transit updates, employment resources, healthcare information, and more.
One year ago, The State of New York redesigned and relaunched their website on Drupal in partnership with Code and Theory and... Plus

Bien démarrer : test à plusieurs variables pour le marketing

Nous avons exploré les principes fondamentaux de l’A/B testing et souligné son importance lorsqu’il s’agit de maximiser les taux de conversion sur votre site web. Contrairement à l’A/B testing qui met l’accent sur la comparaison entre deux ou plusieurs variantes d’un élément unique par rapport à une « version de contrôle », le test à plusieurs variables vous permet de tester plusieurs changements simultanément pour trouver la bonne combinaison qui vous permettra d’atteindre vos objectifs quels qu’ils soient (...

Engage in Review: Creating a Whole Mobile Strategy with Webster Bank

If you’re competing against industry giants who have a strong online presence, your digital banking experience has to offer consumers the convenience and service they’ve come to expect--no matter what device they’re using. Back in 2012, only 10 percent of Webster Bank’s site visitors arrived from their mobile phones. Fast forward to 2015, and the new standard is a mobile experience designed for users who don’t sit at their desktops all day. Instead, a brand’s online presence must be adaptable to all the ways consumers will access it, whether by laptop, tablet or smartphone.

So how did... Plus

As Enterprises Rush to the Cloud, Which Side of History Are You On?

You don’t have to go back many years – maybe to 2011 or 2012 – to recall when everyone was making bullish statements declaring it “the year of mobile.”
In retrospect, there was nothing bold about what they were saying; all the signs were there. What began as a trickle –We’ll get 12 percent of our traffic from mobile users this year! – turned into a torrent, then became...ubiquitous. Today, your organization has either discovered mobile, or you’ve been marginalized. The New York Times made this reality crystal clear when it declared print dead and buried in its October 7... Plus
