Digging into Key Takeaways
For each episode, we like to highlight some key takeaways. Think of it as a podcast outline or live show notes. Here are just a few of the takeaways that really stood out to us in this episode.
Prioritizing Audio and Video to Make the Brand More Personable 📹
With many marketing teams incorporating video into their content strategy, customers are now getting to know the company “behind the curtain” even more. In the world of B2B and SaaS, it can be hard to become personable with an audience, but with the help of introducing audio and video content into marketing strategies, the narrative is evolving for the better. So if you haven’t started with this innovative and easily curated way of content creation, what are you waiting for?
Audio and Video’s Place in an Amplified Marketing Strategy 📣
Have you heard the saying, “The riches are the niches?” Well, if you’re implementing video content into your marketing strategy, you’ll quickly become familiar. Allowing your customers to become better acquainted with your brand through video content can create a community around your show that will further prove your content’s purpose. And once you have that community, you’ll be able to branch off into the creation of more shows and more focused content geared towards what your audience is craving from your team.
Amplified Marketing Isn't Linear ⏳
Remember, amplified marketing strategies are not built in a day. When you plan out an amplified-centric campaign, it’s best to begin with the big picture, then walk your way back to the granular ways of getting there. Create a supporting content feed from the content that you’ve already created. By remembering that all of your content is valuable and can be repurposed in different forms can save both your team’s time and most importantly, sanity.
