Digital Content Managers, Producers, Associates, Coordinators, Specialists – all work toward a similar goal, create and execute on a strategy for engaging their audience with various types of unique content.

Successful Digital Content Starts With Research

The key to communicating with your audience is utilizing data sources to know where they hang out – it doesn’t make sense to craft a bunch of Vine videos if your audience is 40 somethings. And it doesn’t make sense to create 3,000 word articles if your audience is Millenials.

Maybe Linkedin is your perfect audience and Google Plus isn’t, it doesn’t pay to be everywhere doing everything just for the sake of it, have a plan and a reason for the plan.

Success Metrics for Digital Content Jobs

To really succeed in these digital content roles means you not only can write, communicate visually and turn complex concepts into easy to understand topics – it means you keep up with trends.

How are people sharing information? How does this fit into our strategy? How can we leverage this technique for greater exposure?

Digital content jobs change faster and are more agile than TV or newspapers have ever been – since the dawn of Facebook there have been a thousand other information delivery systems – 6 second videos, 15 second videos, image-based, graphics-based you name it.

There are countless niche’s out there in social town, but again, don’t chase each new emerging technology like a cat after a light pointer, discover if it is a match for your business, and better yet your intended audience, before dedicating your precious time to it.
