  • How to develop and deliver your content strategy

    by Stephen Pirrie

    Coca Cola is no longer about creative excellence, but content excellence. Burberry is "as much a media-content company and a design company". Red Bull Media House originate feature-length films from their own film crews and music from their own studio. Facebook and Twitter no longer want media spend to sell ads, but to generate reach for content. Consumers don't want ads, they want good content.

    In this talk we're going to explore how agencies can lead the content generation process from ideation to partnership to delivering and seeding content across social platforms to maintain an always-on content strategy. We will bring our strategies to life by referring to successful case studies throughout the talk.

    Questions answered :
    How do I create content for my clients?
    How do my community managers create low/no budget content?
    How do I focus on the right platforms?
    How can I deliver an always-on content calendar?
    How can I improve my content-creation process from receiving the brief to delivery?

  • The pleasures, pressures and pitfalls of tablet publishing

    by Alex Watson

    People love reading on their iPads, iPhones and Kindles - and publishers and content owners of all kinds have rushed to create apps. Many have failed to deliver value, engage users or compete with content-focussed startups. This talk is a candid, warts and all look at how Dennis Publishing, the UK's leading independent publisher, approach app publishing in 2011: what we got right, what we got wrong, and how we navigated technical, editorial and commercial challenges. This talk isn't about plugging our products; it's about looking at real problems and issues in the rapidly changing world of app publishing: native vs HTML5 code, the challenge of securing technical resource, the role of product management and UX in a print publisher, and crucially, how to create something that consumers want to read.

    Questions answered :
    * What should an interactive magazine look like? * What's the right approach for content owners to take when it comes to putting their content onto new hardware devices? * The challenges and opportunities for established brands and teams when it comes to tablet publishing * HTML5 versus native code: which is right for you? * How do you navigate the challenging relationship between your existing brand values and design, and the guidelines and expectations of new devices, form factors and technology? * How do you introduce new areas such as UX, user research and product management into a traditional business?
