Blurred Lines: Marketing Vs. Public Relations

The lines that previously defined traditional business silos such as sales, marketing, PR, and customer support have become blurred thanks to the digital marketplace. Digital and social media has elevated the role of the customer in the operations of a business, which has become a disruptive force within the today’s organizations. The reality of direct, one-to-one brand-consumer communications has changed the job description and role of many departments in the enterprise. Marketing is more responsible for sales and customer service than ever before and customer service is now a significant player in the corporation’s branding and sales efforts. Public relations is experiencing a renaissance of sorts with a more prominent voice in marketing, and especially social media marketing.

This debate, moderated by Sam Fiorella, pits Chris Heuer, President and CEO of Adhocnium against Bryan Kramer, President/CEO of Pure Matter in a debate over the roles of Marketing and Public Relations in modern enterprises. Which department should take the lead – and budget control – over social media marketing?

Welcome To ESPN PodCenter… Wait, Don’t Go
Having a brand that contains the four letters E-S-P-N, we are fortunate our fans will flock to our stoop the moment we open the door to new content. As gracious hosts and fellow sports fans, we can’t help ourselves… “C’mon In! Set your EARS on this feast! We’ve got a smorgasbord of tasty podcasts to choose from. Feel free to sample the goods and listen all you want!” That’s the easy part. We can attract sports fans, but if we fail at providing a compelling product they will exit as quickly as they entered.

Yes, fans may hang around a little longer because the ESPN brand has gained some equity with them. But unless we follow through on our promise to entertain, enlighten and inform they will slam the door on the product and effectively dent the brand credibility. We’re fortunate that ESPN will attract fans to our selection of audio products. However, just like YOU, keeping them engaged is an entirely different challenge.

You'll Walk Away From This Session Knowing:
  • Thoughts on creating compelling content that will keep people listening to your podcast
  • How to build a fan community around your podcast

Branded Content, the Internet, & You
Video dominates over 50% of all web traffic, and web video interaction is expected to increase fourfold over the next five years. This fact is not lost on brands. Even the smallest start-up is clamoring for video content on their homepage, and companies are quickly realizing that they can hit it big and reach millions with a viral video (just ask Old Spice and One Dollar Shave Club). This demand for digital branded content has created a unique opportunity for content creators. What opportunities in the branded space exist for video makers? What brands are they working with? What kind of video content works best on the internet? We'll talk to some of the most successful branded content makers and shakers on the internet.

The Future of the Independent Blog/Blogger
With more and more blogs populating the Internet, earning a regular readership, gaining popularity, and establishing influence has become more difficult than ever. Driving  personal or business benefit from the effort exerted in developing and managing a blog seems unattainable by many. To differentiate and stand out, many blogs and bloggers are turning to multi-author formats, increased frequency, and experimenting with content formats. Others, in order to remain independent and focused, are turning to tribe-blogging cooperatives and extending their reach by pooling promotional activities across their collective audiences. 

Which is the better path for independent bloggers? Is there even a future for the independent blogger?  This debate, featuring Robert Scoble and Dino Dogan, and moderated by Sam Fiorella, will explore the pros and cons of each option.

Why You Don't Need A Content Strategy
The content marketing that got you to where you are today isn’t likely to get you to where you need to be tomorrow. As more and more brands are generating content for marketing purposes, the most competitive brands are truly becoming more than just marketers, they’re becoming media publishers in their own right. What those brands (and you!) will soon discover is this: making the leap to media publisher means thinking like the media, not like a content marketer. And if you want to keep up, you’ll need to understand that media strategy doesn’t begin with content strategy.

Session presenter Tom Webster has two decades’ worth of experience consulting media brands and platforms on audience growth and content programming, and he’ll bring that perspective to intermediate and advanced content marketers looking to compete in an increasingly crowded environment for content.

You'll Walk Away From This Session Knowing:
  • Why starting with content strategy won’t cut it

From Pitch to Production: Be Careful What You Wish For (You Just MIght Book It)
So often we gear our efforts around finding work: auditioning, pitching, networking, consulting, hoping, praying. But what happens when we actually score a deal? How do we shift gears quickly to work mode from seek mode? What if we were always in work mode, and that helped make our seeking much easier? Hear the true story of a program pitched just last year at an IAWTV session, that was sold just a few months later, and is now in production. Learn how David H. Lawrence XVII took his show, Cash Flow, from NMX slide presentation at the Pitching to Brands session, pitched it to a branded content production company, who optioned it. David is now the host, creator, EP, writer and profit participant. Hear how the contract was negotiated, and the deal set - and how he used the "planning for success" work mode to significantly impact his booking ratio as an actor, and, now, as a producer.

Not every blogger takes photos or creates video. Not every blogger does contests, crafts an SEO strategy, trades links or writes e-books. But every blogger writes. And if you think writing is just the text for metadata or to fill the space between photos, you're wasting one of your most powerful tools for engaging readers and keeping them: Your voice. A video can engage, but only for a moment. A photo can describe, but it can't make an observation. We'll cover easy ways to make writing a stronger part of your blog, regardless of topic or platform. We'll talk about basic tips, as well as look at specific examples (good and bad), and work with content by attendees submitted for feedback.

Fruitful loops: Making Vine's 6 seconds worth much more
Businesses large and small are discovering that there's more to Vine than kids, pets, stop-motion animation and bikini babes smoking weed. Is it possible that the 6-second loop is better suited to engagement and retention than telling a longer story once on Instagram video or YouTube? Yes, but elevating your company's message above the noise, while still being organic and clever, isn't easy. This discussion will cover what makes good Vines better and why they should be part of every business' social media tool box.

PODCASTING: "3-on-3: Three Things I Wish I'd Done Sooner, Three Things I Wished I'd Never Done At All"
Scott Sigler's Audiobooks podcast began in March of 2005, long before iTunes incorporated podcasting, and long before most people — Scott included — had any idea what a "podcast" was. Nine consistent years of Sunday episodes and 25 million downloads later, he's cultivated great ideas and efficient tactics into a New York Times best-selling fiction career and a self-sufficient company. He's also bull-in-a-china-shopped his way through dozens of momentum-stopping mistakes. Scott is happy to share three of each to help you further along your podcasting path.

You'll Walk Away From This Session Knowing:
  • Tips for building a long-term podcasting business
  • Scott's philosophy on making the podcast itself double as evergreen, sellable audiobook content
  • The harsh truth: why it takes most podcasters at least three years (and more like five) before they see any return on their investment

n the YouTube era, how can video creators monetize their content more efficiently and more importantly, profitably. The business model of publishing high-quality, third-party video content to YouTube has been compared to “selling $20 bills for $15.” The revenues created by YouTube’s own ads aren’t enough, but where else can video owners make money? And how can video owners monetize more efficiently on YouTube itself? Our panel of experts lets you in on proven paths to monetization that can mean the difference between red ink and black at the bottom of your balance sheet.
