Get Your Brand Noticed: No More ‘Where’s Waldo’ At Tradeshows

If you’re like most companies, you attend tradeshows and conventions each year to showcase your products, network with industry peers, expand your brand footprint and, ultimately, increase revenue.

But, getting noticed can feel a lot like this:

Can you spot Waldo at this tradeshow?

If you found him, how long did it take?  If you didn’t, I bet you don’t want to spend another second looking for him, am I right?

Now, imagine Waldo represents your brand.

Breaking through the noise of our content-centric world is becoming increasingly difficult.  It can be exhausting to stay ahead of your content marketing goals, and your competition.  And once you’ve fallen behind, it becomes overwhelming.

Producing enough quality content for your audience is a painstaking process, eating up your time, money, effort and sanity.  Then – there’s testing, quantifying and honing your strategy to make sure your content’s maximizing brand impact, increasing lead generation and producing engaged conversions.

How do we start working smarter, and not harder?

The answer may not be as obscure as you think – leveraging 3rd party content is a trend quickly becoming the mainstay of content marketing.

For example, DocuSign rose above the chatter at Dreamforce 2014 by curating the topics, trends and people surrounding the event to help surface their own content.

Wouldn’t this be nice?

Docusign generated thousands of unique page views, engaged with their audience, increased lead generation efforts and garnered endorsements from major thought leaders.

Whether it’s Dreamforce, CES, Adobe Summit, Microsoft Convergence or a Where’s Waldo Convention, creating customer-centric content destinations is becoming the rule, instead of the exception.

Is your company executing its content marketing initiatives cheaper, faster and simpler?

If you’d like to learn how this is possible, please feel free to reach out.  Thanks!

To your continued content success,

Highlights from Day 3: The new wrist wearable that isn’t a watch

Yesterday featured an exciting and highly anticipated launch from will.i.am, but before the singer took on the wearable tech scene, we were treated to a sit down chat with one of the most renown VC investors on the planet, Marc Andreessen.

The investor – who was one of the first to back Twitter – gave some startling insights into the world of the venture capitalist. He talked about the low rate of success when you place a bet, but how important is to be really, really right on the bets that do pan out (this is what they call looking for at least the 10x pay out). He also touched on women’s issues, clamorouing for fairer pay and disparaging the low numbers of female workers in the STEM areas.

But his primary message of the night was about innovation. Apple is losing its edge. And all tech companies will inevitably become obsolete, he said. You better start truly innovating, or fade away. Period.

Great content aside, the true gem yesterday was something you wear on your wrist and does a lot of the things the Apple Watch will do. But don’t call it a watch. It’s really more of a fashionable, standalone super-cuff, and its founder, will.i.am unveiled the gizmo for the first time on stage last night.

The PULS is highly focused on bringing fashion into the tech industry – something the singer claimed is often neglected. Which it doesn’t boast the same health monitors that Apple’s does, it makes up for the shortfall with some unique features: you don’t need a phone to send texts or call for example. With Neil Young showing his Pono player off later today, the world of tech seems to be getting enmeshed ever tighter with the world of music.

Next Year

Kinda like advertising for Christmas on Boxing Day, it’s confirmed that the speakers will announce some early details about next year’s confab as the #DF14 ceremonial closing winds down. Get your calendars out.
