We were fortunate enough to have our good friend and VP of SHIFT Communications, Christopher Penn attend Interact 2013. Chris brought to the conference a marketing perspective on how email, social, mobile and content can work together through an integrated strategy to boost marketing results.

On the last day of Interact 2013, he spoke on the topic of creating a concrete blueprint for content marketing programs that optimize resources for maximum impact. Here are some of the highlights from his talk:

  • “We must treat everyone like the media because everyone is the media.”
  • “‘Shared media’ does not exist.”
  • “Sharing transforms every form of media into earned media, into PR.”
  • “Media is defined not by what it is, but what we do with it.”
  • “Getting found is as much about who knows you as what you’re searching for.”
  • “Content and media that creates the behaviors we want also satisfies search engines.”
  • “Core values tell you what kinds of media and content you cannot create.”
  • “The 3L rule of great content: laugh, learn, or love it, else it’s bad content.”
  • “Earned, owned, and paid extend the life of your content and hard work.”
  •  “Search, social, and media are converging rapidly. Plan accordingly.”
  • “Focus less on stuff and more on what you want people to do with your stuff to succeed.”

Chris has recently spoken at DreamForce 2013, and you can learn more about earned, owned and paid media as well as other insights on digital marketing from his blog, Awaken Your Super Hero.
