Q2: How should marketers talk to sellers about #contentmarketing?
Brian Gilb
A2: to tell more of a story and use specific examples to discuss what the customer needs. #contentmarketing
CatherineCameronHeld
A2 Sometimes sellers hear nails on a board with the term #content...sorry
Profitecture
A2: Sellers need to start by understanding the needs of their customers. #socialselling
CatherineCameronHeld
A2 #content = valuable information
Denise Bahs

#Marketers shld talk to #sellers in terms of customer experience and buying process, not #contentmarketing
Paul Krappman
A2: Marketers don't convince sellers about the concept of #contentmarketing, but they do need to show them how to share relevant info.
Profitecture
A2: Sellers can also use a buyer journey map http://www.slideshar... to help refine their communications.

.@Profitecture what type of original content?
Profitecture
Blog posts, opinion pieces, sharing your view on trends.

A4: Some of our clients use a central "content hub" to encourage sharing of content within a specific theme.
CatherineCameronHeld
A4 @Cisco does a great job utilizing their marketing team in writing their blogs. @chrissie202 just wrote her first blog today!

A4: If you are looking for "find" content, search with keywords and phrases related to your industry.
Jacobo Gonzalez
A4 - well....I think that if I were an SME, I'd try to produce content Vs finding it. If I were to find it, I'd think who I consider to be an expert (blogs, mostly).
