Слайд 16

I endeavour to create content that… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 17

will blow people’s minds

Слайд 18

for a precious heartbeat or two…

Слайд 19

create things that are useful

Слайд 20

things that will blow their minds

Слайд 21

things that will blow their minds

Слайд 22

create things people will love

Слайд 23

Слайд 24

that sounds hard @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 25

do you really need to do that? @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 26

yes I think you do @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 27

Слайд 28

content marketing is not new @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 29

but how we consume content online @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 30

has & will continue to change @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 31

we surface content through filters… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 32

Слайд 33

Слайд 34

do you actually see updates from the companies you follow? @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 35

“A squirrel dying in front of your house may be more relevant to your interests right now than people dying in Africa.” ~ Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 36

facebook protects us from unwanted content @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 37

& so does our technology @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 38

Слайд 39

With four months of steady decline, it’s apparent that tabs are affecting opens in Gmail. After the introduction of the tabbed inbox in May, Gmail opens have dropped 20% Justine Jordan, Litmus @hannah_bo_banna https://litmus.com/blog/48-of-emails-are-opened-on-mobile-gmail-opens-down-20-since-tabs

Слайд 40

Слайд 41

permission may no longer be enough… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 42

Слайд 43

to bypass the filters your content must be shared by lots of people - not just you @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 44

people need to love your marketing

Слайд 45

Слайд 46

today I bring you @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 47

Слайд 49

that I’ve encountered when creating content @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 50

& tips for how to live to fight another day @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 51

stumbling blocks @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 52

can’t we just create something that shows why people should buy our stuff? ~ The Client @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 53

me: the sort of content that drives conversion? @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 54

yeah, do that & get people to share it ~ The Client @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 55

me: you want me to get you free advertising? @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 56

yeah! ~ The Client @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 57

content should be goal-driven @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 58

what you create depends on what you want to achieve @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 59

advertising isn’t shared unless it also entertains / educates @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 60

content to ‘persuade’ isn’t shared unless it also entertains / educates @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 61


Слайд 62


Слайд 63

sometimes it works @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 64

sometimes it just ‘appears’ to @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 65


Слайд 66

yay! @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 67

but people see through this… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 68

Time to start buying food for Christmas! (says supermarket chain) @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 69

you’re getting coverage… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 70

it’s even hitting your target audience @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 71

but @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 72

self-serving messaging can alienate the people you seek to engage @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 73

people need to love your marketing

Слайд 74

pitfalls @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 75

limited creative scope @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 76

that’s off-brand ~ The Client @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 77

sometimes this is true… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 78

but @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 79

your brand is not what you sell @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 80

your brand is how you sell it

Слайд 81

it’s about your values @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 82

your content must not contradict your brand values @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 83

but @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 84

don’t limit your content @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 85

don’t limit yourself @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 86

your content doesn’t have to be *just* about what you sell @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 87

Слайд 88

sell soft drinks @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 89

but their content is about extreme sports @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 90


Слайд 91

because that’s what their target audience love & share @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 92

it’s our job to persuade brands to think beyond their products @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 93

& think about their audience instead @hannah_bo_banna

so @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 100

how do you figure out what your audience love / need / want? @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 106
