From big brands to local small business, we’re all publishers now. Clyde has posted on this in the past and continues to advocate this strategy with our clients. It resonates too and although it can take some time to gain momentum, we’ve seen clients benefit tremendously from our content strategies. Becoming a publisher sounds like a new approach but it’s not all that different from what you’ve been doing all along. In fact, it’s really just a shift in mindset and it can impact all facets of your brand, here’s why. When you shift to a publishing mindset the focus changes from “us” to “them” and more emphasis is placed on the real audience – your consumers.
Publishing requires more analytical and strategic thinking than selling. To be successful as a publisher you need to plan a little better and think things through. Some items to consider are where conversations are taking place, what topics are relevant and how will we respond to audience engagement. Suddenly, the focus becomes more external and community focused. This form of thinking can lead to new ideas, partnerships and ultimately perspective. To help drive home the thought further we thought it would be helpful to share a quick video from one of the worlds most known content marketing ambassadors, Joe Pulizzi.
