How DAM and Content Hub Can Improve Your Digital Strategy
Content – A Marketing Strategy in Disguise
Content is a key resource that is often overlooked. Recently, content marketers are working hand in hand with digital strategists to produce compelling, and personalized content to their customers, to drive conversions. Over 95% of global marketing leaders prioritize publishing personalized content faster and more cost effectively.*
Customers expect unique, and unforgettable moments at every touchpoint. 96% of the most successful content marketers say that content marketing has helped them build credibility and trust with their audience.** The main purpose of content marketing is to attract customers, and build meaningful relationships throughout the customer journey, no matter the channel.
Having various content sources such as social pages, blogs, website etc. can seem excessive, especially when divided across departments and teams. This is where DAM comes in, to help deliver volume, speed, and quality of your content. Digital Asset Management (DAM) simplifies storage, management, distribution, and control of digital assets, all in one place.
Utilizing DAM brings you one step closer to a successful digital strategy.
Sitecore Content Hub and DAM
Content Hub is one of Sitecore’s solutions that focuses on customer experience. It is a unified and integrated platform that helps marketing teams plan, produce, control, and manage their content easily. The unified SaaS platform integrates Digital Asset Management (DAM), Marketing Resource Management (MRM), Content Marketing Platform (CMP), Product Content Management (PCM), and Web to Print (W2P).
Your company can benefit from a well-maintained DAM, resulting in improved efficiencies, reduced costs, and faster time to market. These results will be achieved by centralizing marketing content in one organized and collaborative environment that can be easily shared and integrated with other systems. In addition to avoiding duplicated efforts, and reduced file search time. DAM would not be possible without the flexibility, and larger integrated solution of Content Hub.
Poor customer experience results from slow time to market capacities, caused by siloed and disconnected processes in content creation. With Content Hub and DAM, the process and distribution of content is facilitated. As a result, organizations witness an overall improvement in content lifecycle, as well as the creation of a personalized customer experience.
Content is no longer focused on specific channels, but instead on delivering valuable, omnichannel messages. Content Hub allows content marketers to easily modify content across various formats, enabling the entire organization to view, collaborate, and approve within one integrated solution.
