Tao of Content Marketing

With the proliferation of new media, everyday people are virtually awash in a sea of advertising white noise. Presently, the average American endures approximately 5,000 promotional messages each day. And they’re reacting just as we might expect: by tuning out.

The Tao of Content Marketing is a seminar that explores a new customer-driven approach to marketing: one that is, perhaps ironically, rooted in Taoist philosophies that are thousands of years old. Learn strategic approaches to digital engagement — including search, social media, and content marketing — that will draw your best audiences to you, build trust and credibility, and develop new customer relationships that last.

Specific topics include:

-Is traditional advertising dead?

-Organic vs. paid search marketing

-The role of social media in your marketing mix

-Content: the “critical other half” of successful digital engagement
