2040 Digital: The Solution to Your Content Strategy
The digital economy has provided an unprecedented opportunity for publishers to expand the quantity and types of free content.
Millions of free-agent individuals can now write blogs, publish electronic books and publicize their content across the world.
Previously, the majority of authoritative and authentic content was available only by paid subscription.
Digital users have acclimated to Google and the major search engines, and they judge what is displayed at the top of search results as the most relevant and authoritative content.
Organizations that create and distribute content are confronted daily with a constant need to maintain authority, credibility and authenticity in the expanding digital content universe.
Content is now dynamic and lives and breathes virtually, no longer encased in physical print publications.
The drawback to digital audiences is that your audience may not be who you think it is.
Capturing the demographics and mindsets of digital audiences is more complicated than you realize.
Content and Audience
Millennials will soon be the majority of your customers and members, plus your employees, and represent the majority of your existing or potential revenue.
Your organization now exists in an omnichannel world in which one customer or member interacts with you across all your channels.
And your customers’ and members’ preferences are changing.
They want digital products, content, services and interactions along with your traditional physical world products, content, services and interactions.
