EMERGING MARKETING TRENDS

Successful brand publishing requires many of the skills you would traditionally find in good publishing companies. These include the ability to:

  1. Understand what a target audience cares most about
  2. Create content that is uniquely valuable and serves an audience’s interests and needs
  3. Continuously communicate this content through engaging media channels that meet the audience’s preferences (websites, newsletters, print publications, events etc…)

In the world of B2B water marketing, this is a huge change.  Moving from measuring advertising spend with a focus on immediate ROI to a much longer-term horizon is a tough internal sell and hard to do.

Here are some of the services we provide:


CONTENT CREATION

Many companies today face the same problem: They realize how important original content is to support their marketing efforts but they lack the internal resources to generate the amount of original content necessary to have an impact.

Searching for editors, researching topics, and managing the writing and publishing of content can be a difficult and time-consuming process. We can manage all of these tasks for you.


AUDIENCE BUILDING

From collecting subscribers to keeping your lists current, an effective list management approach is a vital piece of B2B newsletter success. We can handle all circulation management functions and reporting. We can also help with segmenting subscribers into groups based on activity and conducting preference tests to provide your readers with the information they most desire.


NEWSLETTERS

The battle for attention in the inbox is one of a marketer’s toughest tasks. Our experts use proven best practices to improve inbox deliverability and overall newsletter results. We begin with a simple, clean, intuitive design, optimized to look and perform perfectly on all devices. And we offer a range of editorial services focused on improving the engagement of your subscribers.


ONLINE COMMUNITIES

At the heart of brand publishing is the need to define your company as a thought-leader on specific topics of interest to your customers. Many times a single corporate website cannot provide sufficient depth or content flexibility to accomplish this. Using our proprietary suite of media software products, we build and support web communities rich in functionality for a fraction of the cost you would pay to do this alone.

Brand publishing is a new concept for many marketers. And change is often hard to understand.
