Слайд 17

I endeavour to create content that… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 18

will blow people’s minds

Слайд 19

for a precious heartbeat or two…

Слайд 20

create things that are useful

Слайд 21

things that will blow their minds

Слайд 22

things that will blow their minds

Слайд 23

create things people will love

Слайд 24

Слайд 25

that sounds hard @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 26

do you really need to do that? @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 27

yes I think you do @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 28

Слайд 29

content marketing is not new @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 30

but how we consume content online @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 31

has & will continue to change @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 32

we surface content through filters… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 33

Слайд 34

Слайд 35

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

Слайд 36

“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 37

facebook protects us from unwanted content @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 38

& so does our technology @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 39

Слайд 40

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 41

Слайд 42

permission may no longer be enough… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 43

Слайд 44

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

Слайд 45

people need to love your marketing

Слайд 46

Слайд 47

today I bring you @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 48

Слайд 49

& gut-wrenching anguish @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 50

that I’ve encountered when creating content @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 51

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

Слайд 52

stumbling blocks @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 53

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

Слайд 54

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

Слайд 55

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

Слайд 56

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

Слайд 57

yeah! ~ The Client @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 58

content should be goal-driven @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 59

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

Слайд 60

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

Слайд 61

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

Слайд 62


Слайд 63


Слайд 64

sometimes it works @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 65

sometimes it just ‘appears’ to @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 66


Слайд 67

yay! @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 68

but people see through this… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 69

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

Слайд 70

you’re getting coverage… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 71

it’s even hitting your target audience @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 72

but @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 73

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

Слайд 74

people need to love your marketing

Слайд 75

pitfalls @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 76

limited creative scope @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 77

that’s off-brand ~ The Client @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 78

sometimes this is true… @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 79

but @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 80

your brand is not what you sell @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 81

your brand is how you sell it

Слайд 82

it’s about your values @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 83

your content must not contradict your brand values @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 84

but @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 85

don’t limit your content @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 86

don’t limit yourself @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 87

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

Слайд 88

Слайд 89

sell soft drinks @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 90

but their content is about extreme sports @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 91


Слайд 92

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

Слайд 93

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

Слайд 94

& think about their audience instead @hannah_bo_banna

so @hannah_bo_banna

Слайд 101

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

Слайд 105

Слайд 107
