Content Rules in Marketing: What's It Take to Be Heard in a Noisy World?  +

Anyone with a website is now a “publisher,” but what does that mean, exactly? And in our noisy world, how can we create and publish the kind of marketing content that will connect with and engage the people we want to reach?

What tools should we use? Which channels will engage our customers? What can we do to ignite our businesses? How are we going to manage it all? And is it hot in here… or is it me?

Calm down. Deep breath. Let’s take a step back, and look at what you need to do to market  your business successfully using content and social tools.

Ann Handley believes you don’t need more content, you need ridiculously better content. And she delivers the prescription for doing that, with style, humor, and equal measures of how-to and inspiration.  --

Good Content Vs. Good Enough Content: A Fight for Sore Eyes  +

We don’t need more marketing content. We need better marketing content. So says Ann Handley, who believes all our organizations need content that’s ridiculously good to connect with our customers, and improve our bottom lines.

Not ordinary content. Not mediocre. Not run-of-the-mill. Not just “good enough,” either. No sirree. Impossible? Nope — not for you! Because you are made of stronger stuff than you think. You’ve got this. You own it. Or you will… after Ann gives you the how-tos and creative inspiration you need to create the kind of stuff that will resonate with your own audience. Who’s in?  --

Dear Diary: A Content Marketing Makeover  +

Dear Diary: Today I created a blog post and I Tweeted four times. No one commented or retweeted me. I felt alone, especially when I went to my company Facebook page, and saw that my PTAT score is -42. How is that even possible? Only our Google+ is hopping. (Ha! Just kidding….).

Does that sound like a page out of your own content plan? Time for a reset. At this session, Ann Handley helps you remake your content marketing strategy and plan. She’ll show you what the best-in-class marketers are doing to create content that makes their boss love them. And she’ll share her own formula for innovative content, and show you how it can apply to you. You’ll learn how to:

  • Create content that matters to your company
  • Use the can’t-miss formula for developing innovative content (no actual math skills required)
  • Organize your team to generate consistently effective content
  • Produce content that differentiates your brand  --

If you’ve ever been invited to a dinner party where you don’t know anyone, and the hostess introduces you to a few folks….  Then, the next morning you’re trying to remember the last time you’ve had so much fun, and you receive a few encouraging notes from your new friends, including a few links to the precise resources you need to complete your project.  Ann Handley has been that hostess for the B2B community, which is why Forbes ranked her the #1 social media influencer. As a conference speaker, she brings the audience together the same way, with a gift of connecting people through entertaining storytelling and the ability to make the complex simple and fun.

A great speaker can excite you to want to improve. A great thought leader can show you how to improve.  Ann is the rare combination of both, which has motivated thousands of marketers to create success for their organizations. What creates this rare combination?  I believe it is because of her strong marketing and business acumen mixed with a genuine desire to help others.   If you are looking for a speaker who is going to truly enhance your event and will bring a positive feeling to your brand, than I highly recommend Ann Handley.
