How to run a content brainstorm session (Content Lab, Ep. 37)

How to run a content brainstorm session (Content Lab, Ep. 37)

You can't build a content strategy without content brainstorms

Content is the fuel that drives your digital marketing strategy, right?

 Blogging works better when you write about topics your buyers care about.

That's why we research blog topics and create content calendars, so our strategy is always moving forward, never missing a beat.

But if you're only developing content topics through keyword research or internal conversations with other marketing team members, your content strategy will not generate the website traffic, leads, and sales you need.

Content brainstorms with expert teams and client-facing departments are absolutely essential to creating content that drives revenue, and keeping your entire company engaged and excited about the content you're producing.

But how do you facilitate content brainstorms with your sales team? Or teams where you're completely out of your depth, because their area of expertise is highly technical, specialized, or niche?

That's what this episode is all about.

Whether you're a digital marketing manager who has been tasked with owning a content strategy, or a content manager who owns your company's strategic content efforts, this episode will teach you how to facilitate effective brainstorms that yield fantastic content topics and get people excited about content.
