5 Keys Of Event Content Marketing
1. Relevant, valuable story
Editorial, informative, educational, entertaining
Underlying marketing and sales objectives that organization trying to accomplish
Seeks to change attitudes, actions and behaviors. Social behavior change at its core.
4. Integrated With Multi-Platforms
Print, digital, audio, video, social media with F2F events
Targeted towards a specific audience. Can’t name the audience, not content marketing.
Uses multiple senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, touch – to create unique experience.
