Chris Moody - InstagramStrategy + Content = Successful Social

Is content overheated these days?

Has it just become a buzz word?

Or are we paying too much attention to it and driving it into the ground?

How can we balance content with quality and quantity?

These are the pressing questions on the minds of marketers as they navigate the ever-evolving world of social media in the quest for more relevant content that can cut through the noise.

Local content pros Randy and Chris cross over the Convince and Convert podcast bridge to share their take on how content plays into the world of social media. To them, content is literally everything we do. It’s what sales is saying on the phone, what you’re saying in a video, what is in the eBook you just published, what is in this blog post, that Facebook post you just shared… everything is content.

While what you say is still important, it is becoming equally important to be strategic about when, why, and where you share the content.

In This Episode

  • Why good content doesn’t mean clicks, likes, or views
  • How activities-based marketing can keep you busy, but leads to stagnant business growth
  • Why good content means a life lived off-domain
  • How repackaging content for sales reps to personalize and distribute leads to better audience engagement
  • Why paid social means creating a path towards an outcome post-click
