As traditional, interruption-based advertising becomes less effective, marketers are under increased pressure to create engaging, high-quality content that stands out from the competition. Visually has met these needs for the past four years by pairing brands with top creative talent, and giving them the tools they need to make content creation fast and affordable.
ScribbleLive has been innovating since the company was founded in 2008. ScribbleLive was originally known as a live blogging platform but has evolved into one of the industry’s leading content marketing platforms. This evolution was natural. Marketing and technology rapidly change as a result of innovation.
Marketers are creating more content than ever. According to the Content Marketing Institute, 77% of B2C companies and 70% of B2B companies surveyed say that they are creating more content than they did just a year ago. However, producing more content is only productive when you have a solid plan in place.
How much content have you seen published about the 2016 US election campaign? The electoral battle between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for the presidency has dominated media headlines in the US and abroad. If the election of Barack Obama in 2008 brought sweeping change to the geopolitical landscape, this election has greater ramifications for the world.
I’m going to start with a controversial statement: I’m a firm believer in the power of event marketing. Trade shows, owned events, you name it, I love it. The statement is controversial because you either wholly agree or disagree – especially in B2B environments. Events are a huge investment in time and money – but when done right, they help generate quality leads, develop exi ...
Some people like to learn by making mistakes. And by “some people” I mean me, and by “like” I mean it just happens. I guess that’s the price you pay when you’re not afraid to try new things. As product marketers (or marketers in general), we have to try new things every single day, whether because we want to, or have to, depending on the needs of the business.
In the last few years, many marketers have favored short, snackable pieces of content over the longer in-depth counterpart. It was assumed that long-form content (1,200+ words) had no place in a world of tiny phone screens and 140 character word limits. However, recent studies have shown the opposite; long-form content is the comeback queen.
On the evening of Thursday, September 29th, we took over The Mezzanine to bring together San Francisco’s brightest marketing minds for a discussion about content marketing – and we enjoyed a few cocktails, too. Our expert panel included: Mark Goines – Chief Marketing Officer & Chief Strategy Officer @ Personal Capital Nanneke Jansen – Senior Manager, Marketing Program ...

Long-form and short-form content both have their place in a content marketing strategy. Short-form content is a great tool to capture and engage an audience, while long-form educates and informs. However, both types of content have potential downsides. Short-form content can be seen as shallow, and long-form as boring – but they don’t have to be.

This Thursday, we’ll be hosting the second panel discussion in our ‘Cocktails & Content’ event series. We’re setting up shop in San Francisco this time (the first event was in New York), and we’ll be welcoming the Bay Area’s top marketing pros to share their insights on planning and executing effective content strategies.
Some writers wait for inspiration to strike before they take pen to paper – or keyboard to word processor. Must be nice. As content marketers, we don’t have the luxury of waiting around for the magic to happen; and we definitely cannot let writer’s block – the dreaded ailment/productivity-killer – stop us from meeting the never-ending deadlines that blog posts, whitepapers, new ...
The term data-driven marketing is a popular buzzword used to reinforce how strategy and planning are critical to developing great content. David Welch, former VP of Marketing Insights & Operations, once summarized the future of marketing in six words. “Creative thrills but data pays the bills.
The end of 2016 is sneaking up on us, and you’re probably preparing your editorial calendar and campaign strategy for 2017. It’s not always easy to prep and plan content for the future, but we’ve gathered a panel of experienced marketers that know how to build robust and sustainable content engines.
You can find a ton of stats about the rise of live video. They’re all impressive. We spend hours upon hours thumbing through Snapchat Stories every week, and Facebook Live is great at distracting hard-working, focused employees during business hours. I personally spent more time than I’m willing to admit watching BuzzFeed find out how many elastic bands can be wrapped around a ...

T’is the season of giving, and the most effective holiday marketing campaigns are crafted in this generous spirit.
