Plan. Produce. Promote. Perfect. On the surface, these four stages in the global content marketing process might seem self-evident. Or maybe even easy. Nothing could be farther from the truth.The very concept of bringing marketing content into the global arena involves countless sensitivities, disparate business environments and—most challenging of all—multiple countries with vastly different cultures, languages, dialects and buyer behaviors.
On this week’s episode of Globally Speaking, Renato and Michael interview Pam Didner, a B2B marketing consultant, Fortune 100 senior marketer, speaker and author of the highly respected international business book, Global Content Marketing: How to Create Great Content, Reach More Customers, and Build a Worldwide Marketing Strategy that Works.
Pam discusses her Four P Global Marketing framework and why she believes it’s essential for managing global content marketing campaigns effectively.
- The unique role and contribution of each distinct stage—planning, producing, promotion and perfecting.
- Why you should solicit feedback from the local team even before you create a piece of content.
- Are there any drawbacks when you get feedback from the local team?
- Are management processes the same for long-form content versus short-term?
- Why is a piece of furniture a good analogy for excellent marketing content?
