IT Marketing Strategies to Maximize Content Already Available
You can do many things which stretch the power of content in your IT marketing. One of the most effective involves visual re-purposing. Essentially, you can use techniques of the visual variety to double-down on content effectiveness.
It works like this: take an article that’s already been written, condense it down to factoids, present those in an informational graphic representation, or infographic. Additional visual re-purposing tactics include:
IT marketing commonly produces massive quotients of content which go under-utilized. Figure out where there are specific subjects you cover regularly, and put those subjects together in one place under the umbrella of an “eBook”. Essentially, it’s a real book, but digital. You can sell the eBook, or make it available for free. Either way, you can get more mileage out of old content.
A webinar can be hosted live and present known best-practices of tech management. There are likely many pieces of content you can bring to bear in the presentation, and if you do it live, you can even answer questions directly in real-time. Once the webinar has been finished, you can re-post the live broadcast at intervals as it suits you, further doubling-down on content maximization.
SlideShare presentations are in many ways the spiritual successor to Microsoft PowerPoint. In fact, most SlideShare presentations use PowerPoint for the creation of slides. The difference is, SlideShare puts the presentations online. This can be useful as a reference point for clients. Additionally, it can facilitate increased visibility.
YouTube and Instagram Short Presentations
YouTube and Instagram can be co-opted for short presentations. On Instagram, you’ve got a minute–but you can fit a lot of exposition into a minute. YouTube allows longer presentations, but a video lengthier than five minutes will decline in attention retention, generally.
Using What You Have
You can maximize existing materials by re-purposing them through YouTube, Instagram, SlideShare, various webinars, infographics, and design of effective eBooks. Consider what you’ve got and where you’re going, and whether this route makes sense for your IT marketing campaign.
