In the finale of our five-part video series on the Future of Customer Experience, Accenture Interactive content lead for Australia and New Zealand Stephen Hamill talks with AdNews editor Rosie Baker about content strategy and how brands can best manage the welter of content produced today.
"Organisations that are doing really well and starting to outpace their competitors, they're really getting content right," Hamill says. "They understand content, they understand messaging, they're very clear on what it is they're trying to say to their audience and they're very capable, through analytics, of understanding what their audience's intention is and hitting the mark with that messaging."
Content is key to fostering engagement and trust with audiences, continues Hamill.
On the question of how to viably produce content that meets consumers' high expectations and cuts through the content clutter, Hammill stresses the need to "decouple" content production from content management by instilling efficient "industrialised" processes.
And like all messaging, content works the best when clients have a defined and well thought out strategy, he says.
