In this week’s episode, Ian Truscott grabs a free consulting session with our resident Rockstar CMO strategic advisor and former Research Director at SiriusDecisions/Forrester Jeff Clark, to discuss educational content marketing.
Inspired by an interview on the Pro Serv podcast by Collective54, Jeff shares the experience of Andrea Fryrear at Agile Sherpas and what she described as “content-driven inbound marketing” and where educational content sits in this model.
Jeff and Ian then apply the 5 F’in’ Marketing Fundamentals to this strategy and discuss each step to education content marketing; the Masterplan, Knowledge, Story, Campaign and Machine.
Ian then winds down the week with Robert Rose, Chief Troublemaker at The Content Advisory, in the Rockstar CMO virtual bar who, over a Super Bowl cocktail, shares his advice on freeing up your marketing team to get more creative.
