Customer touchpoint overload.
Experiences matter now more than ever. Your customers expect fast, compelling content on all devices and across all channels in their path. But meeting customer expectations on their journey from awareness to advocacy is easier said than done. With the explosion of touchpoints and the ability to personalise experiences, even seasoned marketing teams struggle with content marketing at the required pace. We frequently hear comments from clients on the following issues:
“We don’t have enough content to meet our growth goals.”
Good content can help you to reach new customers and earn their loyalty. But collaborating with creative departments and agencies takes time. You need a way to provide creative freedom with brand consistency and curate content from a variety of sources.
“It’s impossible to manage the amount of content necessary for our marketing efforts.”
You piece together content stuck on hard drives or in email across a variety of silos. And it’s nearly impossible to keep track of the latest approved versions, translations, regulatory or legal updates and expiring rights on copyrighted material.
“I need to publish engaging content that looks good on all media in my cross-channel campaigns.”
You need a way to easily assemble and deliver rich media content without waiting for assistance from IT. This will ensure that experiences are consistent across all channels and optimised for all screen sizes and devices.
Be ready to meet the challenges of content marketing and velocity. The pressure is on.
85% of marketers say they are under pressure to create assets and deliver campaigns more quickly.
76% of marketers agree that personalisation is driving an increased need for more assets.

Content Lethargy vs. Content Velocity.
Content lethargy happens when assets are scattered across disparate platforms and repositories and there is no system for managing versions, approvals and rights. The longer it takes marketers to find the right assets, the less time they have to spend on strategic, revenue-generating activities. Furthermore, wasting time on duplicate asset creation increases expenses and time to market.
Content velocity is achieved when content creators, designers and marketers work together to create assets, then manage and publish them from a centralised location. When content marketing is done well, you get the right assets to the right audiences as quickly as possible, capitalising on conversion opportunities while the experience is still relevant and fresh.
Content marketing and velocity = The ability to create, manage and deliver content from a centralised and searchable asset repository that empowers you to move from asset creation to monetisation as quickly as possible.
By developing a system to break down barriers between silos and manage content across all touchpoints, your company will:
collaboration between marketers and creatives.
content and workflows from a centralised, searchable platform.
dynamic experiences in rich media without relying on IT.
new campaigns with your highest-performing assets.
You need more than content storage.
