Your content marketing will only work if you have the right people to implement it. That can mean a lot of things depending on your organization’s size. Do you work with a large team in an enterprise? Are you in a smaller shop with a handful of people? Or maybe you find yourself saying, “nope, it’s me, myself, and I!”
No matter how our teams are structured, we’re all looking to do one thing. We want to fulfill our customers’ needs with engaging, authentic content.
On this week’s #CMWorld Twitter chat, our community told us about their experiences. We found that despite our differences, the lessons we have learned can help set all of our efforts up for success.
We touched upon questions, like:
What follows is a fraction of the conversation that took place on Twitter. We couldn’t keep up with the tweets because the chat moved quick. We read many insightful responses, more than we could include here. So, we’ve put together two Twitter Moments with every question and answer. We encourage you to take a look. (Twitter Moment – Part 1 and Twitter Moment – Part 2)
A5: Great question, and we have experience in both, so we think about this a lot. Enterprise seem to better understand being very strategic and having a well-drafted plan. Small biz seem to be better at agility and responsiveness and showing authenticity. #CMWorld

A5: It’s all about communication. No matter what size your team is, you need to be able to talk to each other, share ideas, give and take feedback, etc. #CMWorld

A5: I feel it still starts with a solid strategy and goals that focus on the knowing what your customer or audience really wants. Content is for them and not you…applies to both small and large organizations #CMWorld

A5. Process is really important regardless of size. Sometimes smaller teams might overlook the importance of having processes in place and then things fall through cracks or they experience growing pains then the teams inevitably/hopefully grows #CMWorld

A7: I’d say more automation is likely and will certainly change up the anatomy of teams. Machines will do their best to replicate human-generated content, so it’ll be interesting to see where this heads! #CMWorld

I don’t expect there’ll be a major change in how content teams operate in the near future. It’s always been a balance of, until you have the capital to hire specialized roles, you wear multiple hats and get the job done.

A7: Yes. I think research and content teams will work more closely and possibly even merge as we move towards more data-driven and focused content. Creating in-house agencies is also a hot trend to keep an eye on! #CMWorld pic.twitter.com/PVbbppJ3HO
