Content strategy is more or less on the same trajectory as social media was three years ago. Why?
I think it’s because the reality of social media initiatives—that they’re internal commitments, not advertising campaigns—has derailed more than a few organizations from really implementing effective, measurable programs. Most companies can’t sustain social media engagement because they lack the internal editorial infrastructure to support it.
They don’t have a content strategy.
Effective social media campaigns take a lot of work because there are no short cuts to building meaningful relationships. Businesses need to create a lot of real value before first before the sales pitches. Trust is everything and that only comes with lots of valuable content.
