Creating good content consistently is hard enough. But when you’re tasked with targeting multiple audiences at different times, with different messages, and measuring it all, marketing can become overwhelming.

In this presentation, Widen will share how we use marketing automation, customer relationship management, and digital asset management tools to hone our buyer personas, create content that is relevant to each, drive inbound leads to our sales team, and measure the performance of our content across all channels.

You’ll leave with a concrete understanding of the following:

  • The roles personas play in content marketing. Why they are important, and what we did to define and hone our buyer personas
  • The key tools you need to harness content marketing and measurement
  • The data we look at to measure how our content is performing
  • The content strategy we’ve created to drive the right conversation with our target audience in the right moment
